Recently we showed off twenty-five minutes of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS Classic mode, so today we're going to focus on the all-new and 3DS-only Smash Run mode.

This mode is a little different from anything that's gone before, with a five minute prep time on an oversized stage filled with random adversaries ranging from Mario's iconic Bullet Bills to Sonic's Eggrobo's and even Dig Dug's Pookas.

During these five minutes the object is to boost your characters stats as much as possible by collecting the power ups that appear after defeating enemies, opening chests and completing challenges before moving on to the final battle which could be anything from a variation on a standard Smash brawl to an obstacle race to the finish line.
