A new Super Smash Bros. Wii U glitch has been discovered.


Though this isn't something that'll be game-breaking in any way -- and it's quite the process to pull off -- the end result is pretty awesome. Players figured out a way to control eight fighters on screen, all at once, with one controller.

This glitch requires several Amiibo figures, a controller that can desync, and more. Check out a quick clip of this glitch in action below.

Glitch instructions


1. Have 8 Amiibo.
2. Use a controller that can “desync” (a GameCube controller preferably).
3. Go to the 8-Player Smash mode.
4. Just move your joystick until the “Player #” or port space pops up.
5. Click the name part of your port until it says “None”.
6. Remove your controller from the port or desync it.
7. Scan your Amiibo.
8. Plug your controller back in.
9. Move your joystick again and now you will be the Player in the next available space after your scanned Amiibo. Nothing out of the ordinary, but trust me, it’s working.
10. Repeat Steps 5-9 until all the Player spaces are filled with the 8 Amiibo.
11. Go to the Settings (where Time or Stock and Item rules are). Then simply exit.
12. Enjoy controlling 8 characters simultaneously!
