After a rough launch into the land of next-gen gaming, the Wii U is finally beginning to gain a little momentum in the hardware sales column. Nintendo has been slowly increasing its install base, mainly thanks to Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2, and Mario Kart 8. But the edgier part of their sales spike is yet to be seen, as Nintendo’s best reason to own a Wii U, Super Smash Bros. , just launched on November 21st in the US.
On today’s episode of Nerdist: Play, we’ll be talking about just how good Super Smash Bros. Wii U is, and whether or not it’s worth picking up a Wii U console. But before we do that, we’ll be checking out one of the freakiest landings in GTA V history.
I asked you guys on Twitter who your favorite Super Smash Bros. character was, and here are some of the answers that didn’t make it into this episode:
