Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (大乱闘スマッシュブラザーズ for Wii U, Great Fray Smash Brothers for Wii U) is one of two games in the Super Smash Bros. series released as part of the Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U pair, and the home console counterpart to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. Although most gameplay elements are shared between the two versions, there are several elements which distinguish the two.

The game is playable on the Wii U with a variety of controller options, including the Wii U GamePad, the Wii U Pro Controller, the GameCube controller via an adapter, and a Nintendo 3DS that is running the 3DS version or a special app.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U was officially released on November 21, 2014 in the Americas, and was followed by Europe on November 28, 2014, Australia and New Zealand on November 29, 2014, and Japan on December 6, 2014.

Being released after the Nintendo 3DS version, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U marks the fifth game in the series.

Features of the Wii U version

  • The Wii U version is compatible with a set of amiibo figurines utilizing the Wii U GamePad and near field communication. By using their respective figurine, players can give an AI character custom moves and level them up to level 50. The game is the first to utilize the GamePad's NFC function under the "amiibo" branding. But it was Pokemon Rumble U that was the first Wii U game to use the NFC tecnology.
  • The Wii U version lacks the optional dark outlines around playable characters present in the Nintendo 3DS version, though still has the colored outlines for team battles.
  • The Wii U version features different collectible trophies than the Nintendo 3DS version, with a greater focus on elements from home console games.
  • The Wii U version sees the return of Brawl's My Music option, with a large selection of tracks available for each stage.
  • The Wii U version supports off TV play.
  • Three exclusive new modes: Special Orders, 8-Player Smash, and Smash Tour.
  • The Trophy Box is exclusive to the Wii U version.
  • Additionally, three modes which were in Brawl but not in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Coin Battles, Special Smash and Event Mode, return.
  • Ness, Jigglypuff, Ganondorf and Bowser Jr. are default characters, unlike in the 3DS version.

Trivia

  • Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is the first game in the series not to be released first in Japan.
  • Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is currently the Wii U's fastest selling title, surpassing the previous holder of the title, Mario Kart 8. In North America alone, Nintendo sold over 490,000 digital and physical copies of the game in three days.
    • Sales of the Gamecube Bundle and Adapter were so popular in the United States that there was an immediate shortage of the Adapter upon launch of the game, leading to significantly inflated prices from online dealers; at one point, Amazon.com featured prices in excess of $110 USD for the Adapter.
    • This is also the first game in the series where all 12 characters from the original Super Smash Bros. are starters.
  • This is the first Smash game in which the opening movie doesn't feature a character in its trophy form.
  • This is the first game on the Wii U where Rosalina is voiced by Kerri Kane instead of Laura Faye Smith, due to consistency reasons.
  • The game's Japanese release date happens to coincide with the birthday of late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata.
