Last week was rather exciting for those awaiting Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, as Nintendo provided a Nintendo Direct outlining over 50 'Must-See facts. That naturally played a big role in Masahiro Sakurai's Director's Room Miiverse community posts, as he focused solely on Wii U; we're not changing the name of this feature series so late in the day, though.

Beyond the Direct, Sakurai-san also teased a reveal video for a character that most with the 3DS game already know about — unless it's a surprising curve ball — but nevertheless showed what the Wii U visuals can bring; there were also details on trophies, settings and the Boxing Ring stage.

You can find those posts from last week below, then — click on the date heading to visit the posts in question and give them a Yeah.

Going clockwise from the top-left corner, here are the pictures that appear for Rules, Time Limit, Custom Fighters, Stage Choice, Damage Ratio, and Handicap.

2010 ONE

In the Wii U version, you can customize additional rules from the beginning of the game. Here are the pictures displayed for Stock Time Limit, Team Attack, Pause Function, SD Penalty, Damage Display, and Score Display. You can almost hear Fox's cry in the picture displayed for SD Penalty settings.

2010 TWO

21st October

22nd October

24th October — Nintendo Direct

24th October — Nintendo Direct post 2

And here's a stage prepared for a large number of fighters, Big Battlefield!! Fighters can spread out, so it should be easier battling on a stage like this.
