Season of Smash continues on 5th December with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and two waves of amiibo on 28th November and 19th December
Strong launches in Europe, the Americas and Australia have propelled the cumulative sales total for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS to more than 2.8 million worldwide. This first-ever portable instalment of the game has resonated with fans and critics alike, and its initial sales set Nintendo up for a strong Christmas season.
The “Season of Smash” is set for another boost as Nintendo today lifts the lid on the European release date for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, with the fighting series’ first foray into HD landing in European shops on 5th December. The first wave of Nintendo’s interactive amiibo figures will launch a week earlier, on 28th November. Twelve iconic Nintendo characters will be included in the first round, with six more figures set to launch with the second wave on 19th December.
Fans will be able to purchase the standalone Super Smash Bros. for Wii U software at retail or from Nintendo eShop, but will also be able to buy it at retail as part of two bundles from 5th December:
