Many of us may consider ourselves to be pretty strong players in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, but there are always decent odds of jumping into a For Glory online match and being well-and-truly humbled. This writer recalls playing the 3DS entry online in its early days, seeing Japanese characters in opposition names and immediately fearing the worst.
Of course, there are top-notch players all around the world, while some players in Japan will be just as mediocre as any other - nevertheless, a fresh video posted by Nintendo's Japanese channel does no harm to the idea that many Smash players in Nintendo's homeland really know what they're doing.
The video below shows matches from Jump Festa 15, a huge convention held in Japan towards the close of 2014. There's some fantastic action and technique in these two face-offs, with some clever use of items also thrown in.
Check out the footage and let us know if you could hold your own in these matches.
