Smash 3 DS Mii Japan

It'll potentially give you a sense of seething injustice and jealousy, but Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS arrives in Japan on 13th September, a few weeks ahead of its Western release. That does mean all the more marketing as Nintendo builds hype for that arrival, which does no harm at all.

Nintendo's official YouTube account in Japan has just recently published a new trailer that includes over five minutes of 3DS footage. It's very careful to only show modes and details already revealed by Masahiro Sakurai, so some elements of the overall offering remain a mystery; nevertheless it's an attractive batch of footage as it covers basic rules, modes, customisation and more.

Check it out below and let us know whether you're excited about the upcoming 3DS version.
