Mii Smash

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS is less than a week away in Japan, which no doubt has Nintendo's accountants rather pleased. It's the début of the franchise on a portable, too, which is significant in a country where the 3DS rules the hardware charts on a weekly basis.

The advertising campaign is picking up steam, too, and the latest TV commercial is a stylish effort that shows an army of Mii characters lining up to take on some recognisable Nintendo heroes. It wouldn't surprise us if this commercial makes it across to the West in the coming weeks, as all that's truly needed is translated text.

Check it out below and let us know how the hype levels are for you ahead of release in Japan this week and other territories on 3rd October.
