Don't underestimate Mii! These videos showcase all normal and special moves available for your very own fighter in Super Smash Bros. For 3DS and Wii U

Certainly a unique addition to fighting games, the Mii Fighters, unveiled at E3 2014, received a somewhat mixed reception at first, although people seem to have warmed to them a lot over time.

With 3 different types of Mii Fighters available, the Brawler, the Swordfighter and the Gunner, they also have a variety of entirely different custom moves, rather than just small variations to regular moves, which means you can quite literally create your very own fighter in Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.

If you're anything like me, you'll have been at least a little bit curious as to what these pint-sized avatars are capable of, and now you have 3 videos showcasing all of their normal moves, and all of their potential special moves as well.

Has Brawl's plague fallen from grace or is he still a force to be reckoned with? New SSB4 character spotlight focuses on tier destroyer Meta Knight

It's pretty much unanimously agreed upon that Meta Knight is the strongest character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. But with a new game comes new changes.

A few days ago, we put up a video from Sky Williams detailing the many changes made to Nintendo's mascot, Mario, in the new Super Smash Bros. game, and now the turn has come to the anti-hero of the Kirby series, Meta Knight.

If you want to know what changes have been placed on our beloved Meta Knight, and how said changes affect his Meta Game, check out the video.

Sakurai says Ice Climbers were cut from Super Smash Bros. 4 due to 3DS limitations

The entire roster for Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U has been unveiled since the handheld title's release in Japan last week, and with it, fans of past iterations in the franchise were left wondering: where are the Ice Climbers?

In his latest bi-weekly Famitsu column, Smash Bros. series creator Masahiro Sakurai divulged the true reason behind the frosty duo's absence in Smash 4. As many feared, the 3DS' limitations were the deciding factor in the unexpected character omission.

According to Sakurai, the Ice Climbers functioned properly in the Wii U version of the game, but the two hammer-wielding warriors brought forth some issues when on Nintendo's handheld console. Because the Ice Climbers haven't had a new game in their franchise for quite some time now, Sakurai felt they weren't of the highest priority and decided to cut them once the 3DS troubles emerged.

The Ice Climbers weren't the only Super Smash Bros. veterans to be given the boot in the latest installment, as both Wolf and Lucas did not make a return either. We can only hope Sakurai reveals the reason behind their exclusion as well.

'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.

Updated: Super Smash Bros. 3DS demo code contest winner announced

Updated: The winner of the Super Smash Bros. 3DS demo code contest is Stone. We will be sending out the code via DM shortly.

Below is the winning Haiku.

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.

Additionally, the compilation grants a look at Little Mac's other 8 color options (he has 16 in total) that weren't featured in last week's image gallery.

You'll find all of the Super Smash Bros. 3DS taunts and colors below.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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):
