IGN ran a stream yesterday that featured Nintendo's upcoming mega release, Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS. With Nintendo sitting in to talk all things Smash, we got quite a bit of new information about both titles.


While showing off gameplay of Super Smash Bros. Wii U, the Nintendo representative mentioned that Link's Final Smash is identical to that of his Brawl incarnation. He goes on to say that the Hero of Time plays a lot like his predecessor, but that he feels "buffed in a lot of ways," noting that he's quicker overall and has a stronger side+A attack.

When talking about the game's speed and physics, IGN described it as "the perfect blend between Brawl and Melee." Nintendo agreed, adding, "we still play both versions at Nintendo -- we love our Melee; we love our Brawl -- but once we started getting versions of this game in, it just feels so good and smooth."
