Updated: Nintendo asks not to display Smash Bros. Wii U pre-order cards with release date 'yet'

Adding a heck of a lot more weight to the thought that we'll see the next Super Smash Bros. game released on the Wii U on November 21, 2014, Nintendo reportedly told retail outlet Fred Meyer that they couldn't display pre-order cards for the game 'yet'.

The fact Nintendo reportedly didn't have a problem with the date the cards displayed, or supposedly anything else, and they simply wanted them removed until a future time probably means we'll be seeing this title a week before Black Friday, which falls on Nov. 28th in the U.S.

Here's the retail pre-order card that's been making the rounds across the internet. You can find an updated statement from the guy who posted it below.

We've launched our latest tiers section here on EventHubs, this time for Project M.

Video: Super Smash Bros. 3DS Peach bug replicated on stream - learn how to avoid getting hit with the ban

Yesterday we reported that there is a bug in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS that has led to some Peach players getting smacked with a 1-day (1440 minutes) online ban, supposedly for 'cheating' in the For Glory mode of play.

The players were not actually cheating, of course. When Peach pulls out a regular item with her down+B move in the first few seconds of the For Glory mode of play, a bug in the game makes it think that the Peach player has used a cheat device to bring in a regular item for use right at the start of the match.

Although many players speculated that this was due to Peach using her down+B move near the beginning of the match, few players wanted to test out that theory for themselves -- since you'd get banned for a full day for doing that. And so the theory was not completely verified.

Until now, that is -- one brave online warrior, who goes by 'Mochi', has decided to take the plunge, and held a stream on Nico Video where he attempted to document the glitch on video. The bug turned out to be a lot more difficult to replicate than he thought; he was only successful in doing it on his 12th attempt, 27 minutes after he began testing.

Daigo's amazing 'download' ability in action - long set vs. Ace Eirin/Blue Emblem (Guile) in Ultra Street Fighter 4

One of Japan's top Guile players, Ace Eirin (also known as Blue Emblem on Xbox Live), recently played a long set of ranked matches against MCZ|Daigo while he was streaming on Nico Video.

Daigo has said before that Guile is a bad match-up for Evil Ryu. And that does certainly seem the case as Ace Eirin manages to score some convincing 2-0 games against The Beast without much difficulty.

Initially, the two top players appear to be quite evenly matched, with each player scoring one to two consecutive games before losing to the other.

But at some point in this long set, Daigo's "download" was completed, and he proceeded to rack up a bit of a win streak on Ace Eirin. Check out the long set below.

Rosalina & Luma, Greninja, Pac-Man are top tier too? Day 2 Super Smash Bros. tier impressions from Japan

It's now officially the end of Day 2 for Super Smash Bros. 3DS in Japan. After having spent more time with the game's online For Glory mode, a couple of Japanese Smash players haven taken to the forums to share their thoughts on character tiers.

There's also quite a bit of discussion on whether or not Little Mac is as strong as most people think he is -- at the moment he's certainly one of the most common characters you'd run into online.

To start things off, here is a tier list from a Smash player who's clocked 260 For Glory battles with an 85% win rate:

Mario better than ever in SSB4; His up-air has significant juggle potential, up-b a solid combo ender - This spotlight explains his changes in detail

While Mario is without a doubt the most recognizable character present in Nintendo's long history of gaming icons, he hasn't gotten to shine much in any of the entries their crossover brawler, the Super Smash Bros. series.

This might change in Super Smash Bros. 4, though, as many players are in agreement that he's looking a lot better than he ever has in previous iterations. I, myself, also found him the most impressive (largely based on comparison to how he used to be) in the Super Smash Bros. 4 3DS demo.

Sky Williams threw together a video meant to be a character spotlight for Mario, which details all of his changes in this latest Super Smash Bros. kerfuffle, and what these changes mean for Mario in the bigger picture.

While this is still an early diagnosis, the outlook seems promising for our favourite plumber. Maybe he won't need his trusty princess girlfriend to do his tournament fighting for him anymore? Check out the video below and judge for yourself.

If you thought Vergil was motivated before, think again - This new X-Factor conversion makes him even more deadly than he used to be

There's one character in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 that people unanimously agree is, if not the best in the game, then at the very least in the top 3 characters of the game.

Dante's less humorous brother Vergil has proven himself to be a true force to be reckoned with in the game, and it's nigh impossible to see a top 8 without at least 2 or 3 teams with this particular son of Sparda in them.

However, there is no such thing as perfection. No matter how good you are, you can always improve. Unfortunately, Vergil got the memo.

These new X-Factor variations do more damage, kill quicker (resulting in more X-Factor time to spend) and grant you positive meter in the end. Look no further than below to see them in action.

Hugo can armor cancel into his Ultra 1, SPD and many other moves - This tutorial from Ryu Apprentice shows you how he got to be NUMBAH ONE

If there's one thing we know about Hugo, it's that he's NUMBAH ONE. According to himself, at least. People who've tried him out in Ultra Street Fighter 4 seem to largely disagree, and while this might not tip the scales for him, it's certainly one point in his favor.

Thanks to our ever-working lab monster RyuApprentice, we've got a new video which details armor canceling for Hugo and ways to make it work well, including some other tips and tricks for the ginormous grappler. Check it out in full below.

Mew2King: 'Bowser, Zero Suit Samus, Duck Hunt Dog seem to be top tier in Super Smash Bros. 3DS at this moment'

Empire Arcadia's Jason "Mew2King" Zimmerman, one of the top players in the competitive Smash scene, has managed to get his hands on a Japanese copy of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.

Although he hasn't played it too much (about 5 hours), he's tried out most if not all of the characters on the roster, and has been sharing his thoughts on them in the chat for CT|Zero's stream.

Mew2king: I think Bowser is possibly the best character.
Mew2king: I think C.Falcon is good too.
Mew2king: It's not balanced. Bowser is way better than most characters

Super Smash Bros. 3DS players smacked with 1-day ban online... for playing as Peach

One of the great things about the online experience in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, which is currently out in Japan, is that Nintendo will actually smack players with a temporary ban for disconnecting too much, or exhibiting poor player behavior such as ganging up on a single opponent in an extreme manner.

The game informs you about that as soon as you step into the world of online. But what it doesn't tell you is that Nintendo will also temporarily ban players they suspect of using cheats in the "For Glory" mode of online play, in which all matches are played tournament-style -- on the Final Destination versions of stages with no items.

At the moment, it appears that if you choose to play as Peach in the For Glory mode online, there is a high chance that you will get banned for using cheats -- due to a bug.

According to a user on the 2ch forums in Japanese (translated by us):
