First Duck Hunt high-level tournament play – Super Smash Bros. 3DS replays featuring Chibo, Nyani, NAKAT, and Nairo

CLASH has uploaded some footage from a recent tournament of Super Smash Bros. 3DS.

The first replay features CT|Chibo (R.O.B.) versus Nyani (Mario). Despite it being early in the life of the game, the matches play out at a fairly high level. Also, for those of us only with the Demo, it might be an excellent idea to take notes and get a head start as Nyani shows off her Mario.

The second has Chibo putting his R.O.B. against RJ's Duck Hunt Dog. It's especially a treat for seeing some of the most recently revealed characters in action. The third video, and the grand finals set, has NAKAT's Megaman and Lil Mac going against Nairo's Zelda.

What ties these tournament videos together extremely well is the commentary. For those of us from the Street Fighter scene looking to figure out the ins and outs of competitive Smash Bros., these replays give some fantastic insight into the latest entry.

Check out the videos below for some excellent commentary and even better Smash play.

How fast is the 3DS version of Smash compared with Melee and Brawl? Check out these side-by-side move comparisons

If you want to know how Smash Bros. on the 3DS stacks up with previous entries in the series in terms of move speed, this clip from ProJared will be right up your alley.

He compares how the animations of Mario, Link and Pikachu's attacks compare with the prior versions.

The clips are all recorded starting on the first frame of the idle animation. Jared notes that some character animations have changed from game to game, and very few are exactly the same.

E. Honda's sumo stance perfectly encapsulated in Pop Culture Shock's latest Street Fighter statue

The good folks over at Pop Culture Shock are adding another Street Fighter character to their long line of figures. Everyone's favorite sumo wrestler, E. Honda, joins the statue ranks and comes with a couple of variations.

Three versions of this 1:4 scale statue can be purchased: original E. Honda, Ozeki exclusive, and Kabuki exclusive (based on the alternate costume found in Street Fighter 4.) The former two statues stand 15” (38cm) tall with base, while the Kabuki figure 17.5” (44.5cm) tall with base.

Both the Ozeki and Kabuki exclusives come with additional E. Honda heads to change the appearance of the statue. The three Honda figures run from $350-$370, and each one comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Earlier this week, another Wednesday Night Fights grudge match took place at the weekly event in Walnut, California. Alex Myers and LowTierGod battled it out in a first-to-five Ultra Street Fighter 4 set, but street cred wasn't the only prize on the line that night.

'I never get outplayed, except when I play Mike Ross!' - K-Brad shows his Dhalsim skills in Ultra Excellent Adventures ep. 31, pt. 2

The Cross Counter boys are back with the latest installment of their Ultra Excellent Adventures featuring EG|K-Brad.

Today we witness K-Brad's Dhalsim skills as he goes up against a high-pressure Dan player. The Evil Genius also makes it known in this episode that he never gets outplayed, except when he is matched up against the incomparable Mike "Mike Ross" Ross.

Gootecks and Mike stick with their guns here, playing Yun and Hugo respectively. Ross tries to provide his Excellent Adventures co-host with some match-up advice, but it doesn't go so well...

"Just hit him with the Kazunoko: do some jabs, then randomly Red Focus!"

Ultra Excellent Adventures episode 31, part 2 is only a click away. So what are you waiting for?!

Daigo brings the dark hadou against Elena, Poongko's Seth tries to out mix-up Dudley, and Smug fights in a battle of the boxers in these USF4 replays

In this latest set of Ultra Street Fighter 4 replays, MCZ|Daigo is spotted taking his Evil Ryu against the incredibly tricky Elena. Both characters are capable of inflicting some serious damage on one another through their mix-ups, so the fights go quickly.

Equally, or perhaps even more deadly of a fight can be seen between Poonko's Seth and UGP HJM's Dudley. Can Poongko's mind games overcome Dudley's insane damage and stun output?

Finally, we have PIE|Smug take OSV305's Balrog into the ring to see who will take home the fight money and honor.

Check out the videos below to enjoy this latest batch of top-level replays.

'This guy's doing combo videos and it's a tournament!' – Compilation of Smug shows what happens when Dudley takes you to the corner in USF4

If Third Strike's Kokujin were to ever have a spiritual successor, it'd be tough to argue against PIE|Smug while watching this latest compilation video by The BEAST.

Combos, mix-ups, and stun after stun have even the commentators laughing and shouting in disbelief.

From wild comebacks to giving his opponents some air time, it's hard not to get caught up in the sheer power of Dudley when he corners his opponents.

Check below for almost ten minutes of Ultra Street Fighter 4 juggling action.

Character-specific infinite combo discovered in Super Smash Bros. 3DS - Zero Suit Samus seems to have a personal vendetta against poor Robin

Oh, poor Robin. No amount of tactical advantage will be able to save you from infinites. Well, assuming the other player can even get them going, that is.

It's been discovered that Zero Suit Samus has a character-specific infinite against Robin, which supposedly does not work on any of the other members of the cast. With today's age of patches, Nintendo might try to do something about this, but there has been no official word to that effect as of yet. Want to see the infinite in action? Look right below.

'Super Smash Bros. 3DS' netcode is leaps and bounds beyond Brawl's' - Maximilian reviews Smash 4's online play using Japanese version

With the Japanese version of Super Smash Bros. 3DS already officially available in Japan, many folks here in the states have gone about picking up the game, (along with Japanese hardware to play it on.)

One man who went this route, and knows a thing or two about online play, is none other than constant content creator, Maximilian. After 10+ hours of game time with Super Smash Bros. 3DS, Max brings to us a video review of the handheld title's netcode.

He starts off by saying that although the new Smash's online connection has its ups and downs, (pun not intended), this new netcode is "leaps and bounds beyond" Super Smash Bros. Brawl's. What the online experience seems to boil down to is, according to Max, your connection.

"It really depends, from what it seems like, on your connection. If you have a stable connection, then it's going to run pretty good," Max explained. Unfortunately, he does mention that it feels like Smash's netcode does not know what to do when it runs into a poor connection.

Super Smash Bros. 3DS sells over 1 million copies during launch weekend in Japan

Super Smash Bros. 3DS was officially released over in Japan last Friday, and you may not be surprised to hear that the new handheld title is already quite popular.

During its opening weekend, Smash 3DS sold over 1 million copies in the land of the rising sun. This total number takes into account both the digital and physical versions of the game.

Not only that, but Nintendo has stated that 1 million retail copies of Super Smash Bros. 3DS have been shipped out to stores in the region. It looks like the company is already gearing up for another giant wave of upcoming Smash sales.

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.

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.

Gameplay debut for Guilty Gear Xrd newcomers Sin Kiske and Elphelt, this video from TGS covers their movesets and tools in detail

While we've known that the console version of Guilty Gear Xrd will be receiving two brand new characters, Sin Kiske and Elphelt, we haven't gotten to see any actual gameplay footage of the two outside of trailers yet.

Thankfully, TGS is a huge event that ArcSys don't want to miss, and as such they have brought their two new characters out in full force for the event. Below, you can find full runthroughs of the two characters, and gaze in awe or disgust (your call) at their movesets.

I must say that on a personal level, I love the idea of someone hitting people with a bouquet of flowers.
