Super Smash Bros. Fusion (originally known simply as Fusion), known in Japan as Dairantō Smash Brothers Yūgō (Japanese: 大乱闘スマッシュブラザーズ融合 Great Melee Smash Bros. Fusion), is the fifth installment of the Super Smash Bros. fighting series, and the second for both the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, succeeding Super Smash Bros. 4. Unlike the previous installment, which shared most elements, the two versions of Fusion are quite different from each other, though they can connect to one other to unlock additional features, such as Assist Trophies or trophies.

Tier List

As with previous Super Smash Bros. titles, players created a tier list to judge the competitive usage of the characters in Fusion. The 3DS and Wii U titles each have their own tier lists, shown below.

Gameplay

Super Smash Bros. is a party-fighting game that is somewhat different from other fighting games. Unlike most fighting games that have two fighters aiming to deplete their HP bar to zero, Super Smash Bros. has from two to four (eight in some modes) characters fighting in large, 2D environments. Fighters are given damage percentages that act oppositely to HP bars in other fighters, increasing the distance the fighter is launched should the damage percentage be higher. In order to defeat fighters, it is the player's job to knock the other fighters off-screen, earning them a KO or removing a stock from those KO'd.

Single Player

Classic Mode

Classic Mode remains relatively unchanged from Brawl, where players must fight 12 levels against "randomly" chosen opponents. Like in Brawl, the opponents, and stage, chosen must correspond to a series/theme given to said level. Two bonus Target Smash! levels are placed in-between levels four and five, and levels ten and eleven. Master Hand serves as the boss for this mode, and is fought on the twelfth - and final - level. Crazy Hand can replace Master Hand, should the final stage be reached in less than ten minutes. Characters and stages are added to the roster upon being unlocked.

Target Test

Target Test, a staple mode from previous Smash Bros. titles, returns in Fusion. Similar to Brawl, there are 5 levels of different stages, each of varying difficulties. Unlike Brawl, Fusion's Target Test arenas are based on NES Nintendo games, with the targets being styled to match. Level 1 (Very Easy) is based upon the Super Mario Bros. overworld; Level 2 (Easy) is based upon The Legend of Zelda dungeons; Level 3 (Normal) is based upon the Underworld portions of Kid Icarus; Level 4 (Hard) is based upon the starting area of Metroid; and Level 5 (Very Hard) is based upon the Duck Hunt field, with the Dog and Ducks even attacking players as they attempt to destroy the round targets. The Target Test mode is exclusive to the Wii U version.

A special Target Test will occasionally appear in Smash Run challenge doors. Characters have unique Target Test arenas in Smash Run, to cater with their moveset properties. The unique Target Test arenas differ in the 3DS and Wii U versions, with the Wii U continuing with the retro themes, while the 3DS uses arenas similar to Melee's Target Test areas.

Special Orders

Returning from Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the Special Orders consists of two different modes that give various unlockables- trophies, CDs, coins and customizable options. The two different modes are Master Orders and Crazy Orders. Each mode has the player choosing between three different challenges in order to win an award.

Master Orders are relatively simple than Crazy Orders, though rare items - like CDs or rarer trophies - are less likely to appear.

Crazy Orders features much more difficult than the challenges in Master Orders, though at least one rare item will appear in every set. Unlike Master Orders, where you keep your reward upon completing the challenge, in Crazy Orders, the player is only able to keep their rewards should they successfully beat Crazy Hand. Additionally, one must pay 1000 coins or use a pass in order to even participate.

Stage Builder

Stage Builder returns as an exclusive mode to the Wii U version, acting very similarly to its Super Smash Bros. for Wii U counterpart. Players can draw on the Wii U gamepad using the stylus to create platforms, as well as place objects and hazards. Objects include barrel cannons, springs, moving platforms and even lava. There are several backgrounds one can choose for their stages. The background of every stage can be used, as well as one based around a volcano, a forest, an underwater temple and space.

Masterpieces

Masterpieces return from Super Smash Bros. Brawl and the Wii U sequel. Unlike previous titles, all Masterpiece titles are unlockable, with them being unlocked after clearing All-Star Mode as a certain character.

Multiplayer

Versus

Versus is the classic four-fighter mode seen in previous games. In Versus, players do exhibition matches to test out new fighters, or just duke it out against friends or computer enemies. One can also customize the settings, changing it to stamina battles, stock battles or coin battles. One can also choose which items can spawn, and which stages can be decided via the random button. The options include other, smaller, things including the ability to remove the HUD, or to disable the pausing (and, hence, screenshot) feature.

Additionally, 8-Player Smashes return for the Wii U version. Only some stages are usable when 8 players are playing, with some stages being modified to fit the larger number of fighters. More stages can be used when playing with 6 or 7 fighters, with all stages being usable when playing with 1-5.

Point Attack

Point Attack is a new mode based around the versus mode. In Point Attack, fighters have to earn points by comboing attacks and KO opponents. By comboing attacks together, fighters earn point multipliers in order to increase their score drastically. Additionally, more points can be earned by taunting after getting a KO, though this point bonus is quite small.

When an fighter is KO'd, they lose a third of their points, which is gifted to the person who KO'd them. If a fighter self-destructs, they lose a third of their points, which are not gifted to anyone. Points are only shown at the end of a match, making the winner a mystery until the game's end.

Smash Run

See also: List of Enemies in Smash Run

Smash Run returns from Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. Like the previous game, Smash Run consists of various Nintendo enemies in a large map, all ready to be defeated by the player. Defeating enemies yields the player with power-ups, and being damaged loses the same ones. After five minutes, the power-ups that you collected are shown, and you are thrown into a minute-long battle. In online battles, you do not see anything about your opponents until you battle, though in local battles, you share the same map, though are unable to attack each other. Unlike the previous game however, Smash Run appears as an online-exclusive mode in the 3DS version, while the Wii U version can also be played in multiplayer mode locally.

Various boss characters, whether they be from Story Mode or Stage Bosses, can also spawn randomly during the "Smash Run" portion of the mode. Additionally, sometimes events can occur that can help or hinder you. Events include:

  • Bullet Bill Storm - Bullet Bills will be the only enemies that spawn, though will travel through the walls to attack the player.
  • Giant Enemies - All enemies will become twice as big, and drop both more and rarer items.
  • Clone - A clone of the player's character will appear on the stage. If defeated, it will drop enough power-ups to double the player's stats.
  • TAC - A TAC that moves with triple speed. This TAC will, when it attacks you, steal your power-ups. If it is killed, it will drop all of the power-ups it had stolen. Sometimes, it will instead mix up the items dropped. The special TAC is indicated with a skull mark that hovers above it.
  • Blindness - The entire stage is covered in thick fog, making the player and enemies invisible. However, the enemies drop more power-ups when defeated.
  • Heavenly Protection - A light shines from above, protecting the player from attacks from above.
  • Metal Box - All enemies become metallic, weighing them down and increasing their damages.
  • Special Enemies - A special enemy will spawn that does massive damage, though will release many stat changes upon death.
  • Treasure Hunt - An arrow points to the nearest treasure chest, with an indicator showing how far away it is.
  • Secret Room - A secret room opens somewhere on the map, where treasure chests lay and enemies can't spawn.
  • Enemy Storm - Only one type of enemy will spawn on the map.

If one connects the 3DS version to the Wii U version, this unlocks Smash Run to be played in single player on the Wii U version. Unlike the multiplayer version, the single player mode does not feature a battle at the end, though the time limit is instead raised to ten minutes. After ten minutes, the player can connect their 3DS to the console, and gain Skill Points, allowing the player to unlock more customisation options for movesets. These movesets can also be transferred back to the Wii U version, and can be used in local multiplayer, "for fun" online or with friends. In all other modes, these moveset changes do not get applied.

Tournament

In Tournament Mode, players and computer-controlled opponents can face against each other in versus matches with settings determined by a host. The Tournament's rules can have 2-4 players per battle, with up to 32 character slots available. The customizable tournament settings include which stages one can play on; if a single stage is used for the entire tournament (and which one); or if the player can choose which stage they plan on. In addition, the normal stock/time/coin match choice returns, as does an item select. One can also choose which level every computer player is set to, either each one alone or all of them together. The game's speed is reduced to that of Melee's during tournaments, and is the optimal choice for professional smashers.

Nintendo will sometimes hold online tournaments via Nintendo Network, where certain restrictions may be put in place. Additionally, players can hold online tournaments with people on their friend lists. Restrictions for online matches are the same as offline ones, though certain stage choices, character choices or item choices may be unavailable in an attempt to make the tournament more challenging.

Adventure Mode

The story for the games' Adventure Mode differs depending on the console.

Main articles: Adventure Mode: Hero's Fusion, Adventure Mode: Requiem of the Ancients

In an interview with Existence Software, they have noted that the Wii U's story mode will feature the Nintendo villains teaming up to destroy the heroes once and for all. They have noted that the story mode for the Wii U version will actually be packaged on a second disc, and will be a Star Fox: Assault-styled playthrough. The 3DS version's story mode is a sidescroller based heavily upon the Subspace Emissary from Brawl, to which this succeeds. The heroes must take down the outraged Subspace Army after the loss of their army, while Master Hand attempts to control all of the characters by turning them into trophies for good.

Unlike the Subspace Emissary from Brawl, "Hero's Fusion" uses areas and enemies from Nintendo franchises, with only a handful of the Subspace Army appearing at all, though th Subspace Army makes up a majority of the enemies in the 3DS version.

Gameplay Elements

Stage Entrances

Main article: List of Stage Entrances in Super Smash Bros. Fusion

Every character has a unique on-screen appearance referred to as a "Stage Entrance". While these are only seen in online play and versus mode, they often reflect the character and their series of origin, usually referencing a popular game within the series. Some Stage Entrances appear as a part of a character's trophy, though there are only a small few that do.

Victory Themes

Main article: List of Victory Themes in Super Smash Bros. Fusion

Similar to Stage Entrances, characters have a Victory Theme should they be victorious at the end of an online or versus match. The Victory Theme is the same for all characters of a specific series, though some characters - usually villains or anti-heroes - have unique ones to play for their victory. The theme is a remixed variation of a fanfare present within a game (or games) of the character's origin series.

Taunts

Main article: List of Taunts in Super Smash Bros. Fusion

Every playable character is given the ability to Taunt in-battle, and can be used whenever during any mode - even Adventure. These Taunts are ideally used upon the KO of a character, often done so by the character(s) that dealt their fatal blow. These taunts are unique to every character, and, as with the Stage Entrances and Victory Themes, often represent their origin franchise in various ways.

Main article: List of Special Taunts in Super Smash Bros. Fusion

Some characters have the ability to activate "Special Taunts" by repeatedly taunting on a specific stage. These can range from having NPC's randomly comment on the stage and its hazards, to other NPC's giving the player advice on how to beat the other fighters. These "Special Taunts" are only available in the Wii U version, as they usually include on-screen images on the HUD.

Online Play

There are three gamemodes found in the online menu of the game: Smash Run, For Fun and For Glory. Smash Run is exclusive to online on the 3DS version, while the Wii U version has it acting the same way in both multiplayer, single player and online. For more information, see here.

"For Fun" allows players to fight against other players via random selection or with their friends in a tournament-styled battle. The "For Fun" mode has all items turned on, and all hazards turned on for stages, which are chosen at random. "For Fun" keeps track of only wins, and allows for more casual play. Additionally, Nintendo and the developers will also hold special tournaments that are competition-styled, though with specific rules set: only certain items, certain stages and, in few cases, certain characters allowed.

"For Glory" allows players to be randomly pitted against other fighters in a Final Destination-exclusive, no items playlist for tournament-styled play. Additionally, sometimes, various contests held by the developers and Nintendo will also hold special tournaments with up to 200 people entered at once. The "For Glory" mode is for more competitive players, and keeps track of both wins and losses, with the player able to view a chart of their first, second, third and fourth places.

Additionally, players earn experience by placing: 4 for first place, 3 for second, 2 for third and 1 for fourth. These allow for more matches with players pitted against other players of a specific skill level. Like Brawl's Subspace Emissary, players can also equip stickers to change the attributes of the characters they play as; though this is only available in "For Fun" mode.

Additionally, all stages in the Wii U version contain a large variety of songs that can be collected through CD's. The 3DS version contains two songs for each stage instead, with the second song needing to be unlocked the same way.

All stages have an Omega variant, which takes the form of Final Destination: a flat platform with no gimmicks. A normal Final Destination is used in single player mode, being based more off its Super Smash Bros. Brawl appearance, with elements of the Meta Crystal stage from the original Super Smash Bros.. It is not playable in multiplayer mode.

Stage Bosses

Stage Bosses reappear from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, though this time, they are able to be toggled on and off, as they are counted as "hazards". Stage Bosses deal massive damage, though often give bonuses to those that deal the final hit on them.

amiibo Functionality

Both the Wii U and 3DS versions feature amiibo functionality. Like Super Smash Bros. 4, amiibos turn into special CPU players - Figure Players (FP) - that can learn and become stronger. Unlike normal CPU fighters, which have a maximum level of 9, FPs can be levelled up to level 50 in the 3DS version, and 75 in the Wii U version. amiibos will be released for all characters in the games, and all fighters that are a part of the "Fusion" lineup can be used regardless of if they appear in that version, with the exception of the Ice Climbers. Additionally, using an amiibo for the first time will grant a special trophy. These do not count towards collecting every trophy, and are considered bonuses.

Version Connectivity

Connecting the 3DS version to the Wii U version unlocks ten new trophies and three new assist trophies in the Wii U version, while an additional character in the 3DS version.

Reception

Give a review here.

Upon release, the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. Fusion was commercially successful, selling 800,000 units in Japan on the day of release, and 825,000 in the United States. However, critical reception has not been as good, with multiple critics citing that the smaller character roster and seemingly rushed stage designs as reasons to remain with Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS instead. Fans have agreed, and have said that most stages share elements or layouts with stages from previous games, with the Evershade Valley stage being one of the prime examples. Critics have said that some characters being exclusive to the 3DS version was a great choice by the developers, but have frowned upon their choice of characters.

The Wii U version has been different. While selling fewer copies than its 3DS counterpart, both players and critics alike have shown great interest in the game, praising it and its physics. The game's character choice and stage design has been praised, with many claiming that the stage selection is better than that of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. Additionally, characters that were cut from previous installments to return again (Young Link, Mewtwo and the Ice Climbers), have also been welcomed back, though the lack of Super Smash Bros. 4 newcomers has been cited as disappointing. The soundtrack has also been praised, mainly by Nintendo enthusiasts, for including tracks from various obscure titles, among the likes of StarTropics, Uniracers and Magnetica.

Achievements

The game uses a built-in achievement system that gives the player coins when they complete an achievement. Players can also see and compare their achievements with users on their friend list or on an online leaderboard. Achievements are exclusive to the Wii U version of the game.

Trivia

  • This is the first game in the series where every stage is not a part of a universe, with the ones being series without a playable representative being put in a "Special" series.
  • Unlike previous games in the series, Super Smash Bros. Fusion was developed at the same time as Super Smash Bros. 4. While Sora Ltd. and Namco-Bandai are credited as developers, they acted more as creative supervisors, with Existence Software doing almost the entirety of the work.
  • On the game's disc, data for various characters can be found, including Roy from Fire Emblem, Tom Nook from Animal Crossing and Starfy from Legendary Starfy. Interestingly, the trophies of all three of those characters are placed within the "Fighters" category, as opposed to "Fighter Related".
    • Additionally, the three of them do not appear anywhere on the 3DS version.
    • This may be the reason why Starfy was removed from his Assist Trophy position.
  • The Paper Mario series symbol is the same symbol used for the Super Mario series in Super Smash Bros. and it's sequel.
  • Oddly, Mike Jones and Hiro, from StarTropics and Trade & Battle: Card Hero, respectively, are both labelled as "other" characters, despite their games being released on the SNES and Game Boy Color, respectively.
    • Additionally, Cupid's game of origin is incorrectly spelled as Sennen Kozoku as opposed to Sennen Kazoku.
    • The director of the game has stated that Wonder Red was a consideration at an early stage of development, before they had decided on making the game based more on Nintendo's past instead of present.
  • The Metroid series is the only series to have more than two stage boss representatives across both versions, with Gandrayda, Ridley in the Wii U version and the Fire Spawn in the 3DS one.
  • The game features multiple references to Nintendo titles in miscellaneous ways.
    • For example, at the end of Classic Mode, the character completion videos say "A Winner Is You!" instead of "Congratulations!", a reference to the NES title Pro Wrestling.
    • The main menu features sprites from various titles on the NES, SNES and GameBoy. While most sprites are of characters from represented series, other characters will sometimes appear. Examples include the main character of the NES titles King-Fu, Gumshoe and Golf, as well as multiple characters from Time Twist: Rekishi no Katasumi de....

Name origin

  • The origin of the "Fusion" name for the game's subtitle comes from the fact that the game combines Nintendo's past and present, and fuses them with Super Smash Bros.. Additionally, the 3DS and Wii U versions can connect in order to unlock more content.
  • The game was not originally going to be a Super Smash Bros. title, but was later added on after the gameplay more closely resembled the SSB series'.

Easter eggs

  • The announcer will call all Miis by the name "Mii" regardless of their actual name. If the language is set to English, allowing Reggie Fils-Aime to be the announcer, and a Mii with the name of Reggie is chosen, he will call them "Reggie".
  • If the language is set to Japanese, the announcer, Masahiro Sakurai, will call certain Miis by their names. These names are "Sora", "Hal", "Sakurai", "Kirby", "Dedede" and "Meteos".
  • Hacking the camera allows the player to view stages at angles that should not be possible to be seen normally. Certain stages include easter eggs that appear in areas that can only be seen by hacking the camera:
    • Slot Machine: Floating inside of the Slot Machine, behind the slots, is Slippy Toad's headshot from the original Star Fox.
    • Sunshine Airport: Looking at the top of the plane that flies above the stage at times will reveal a Pianta in a T-stance.
    • Sea of Eden: Underneath the water below the main platform lies a copy of the Porky Statue trophy.
    • Meteorite Hill: A Mr. Saturn appears should the camera be rotated 180-degrees.
    • Hanafuda Valley: The N64 logo appears on the back of some cards. This can also be seen in normal play under certain circumstances.

Beta elements

  • According to the director of the game, various characters were considered during the game's planning stages. These include Takamaru, Dark Pit, Medusa, K.K. Slider, Sukapon and Dixie Kong. Of these, Dixie Kong, Takamaru and Dark Pit were the only characters with moveset concepts. The others have concept art and unfinished concepts.
    • The director has revealed that because Takamaru was in planning to be a character for so long, when he was unable to be implemented into the game as a playable character, they were unable to come up with Assist Trophy data for him.
  • The game's primary director, Jake, has said that there were plans to include many more Assist Trophies who were ultimately cut for time constraints. These include the Prince of the Sablé Kingdom, Donkey Kong Jr., Mr. Stevenson and Donbe. The four of them appear as trophies.
    • Interestingly, the five characters are all "retro" characters who have ceased to have appearances.
  • Originally, the Paper Mario series was integrated with the Mario series.
    • Later, a design of Tippi from Super Paper Mario was used for the Paper Mario series, as shown in the game's files.
  • Ness and Lucas were originally going to be able to have their own Special Taunts when fighting on the Eden Lake and Chimera Laboratory stages, respectively.
    • One of the data files mentions Paula Polestar, indicating that she may have been one of the characters that Ness/Lucas could speak to.
  • Data files for Lucina as an alternate costume for Marth can be found in the game's files. However, the model is glitched and, when used in-game via hacks, appears as Marth with no textures or animations.
  • A pre-release screenshot of the Wii U Smash Run showed an Earth Guardian from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword being attacked by Lyn, who is using a dark blue colour scheme. Both the enemy and colour scheme are not used in the final game, though the Earth Guardian's model can be found in the Wii U version's files, indicating it may have been a Wii U exclusive enemy.
  • Models for The Imprisoned's (Skyward Sword) second form (where it gains two hands) can be found in the data for the 3DS' Adventure Mode.
  • An alternate texture making Link appear to resemble Ravio is found in his character files. If loaded in-game, the texture works correctly, with the sole exception of Link's weapons, which are texture-less.
  • A model and textures for Toadette can be found in the game's files. They, like the Ravio texture for Link, work perfectly.
    • The Toadette skin can also be used legitimately after the 1.0.4 update. The development team had said that there were various things wrong with Toadette's pigtails- such as they would occasionally stand straight up. They had planned to scrap it, when one of the developers found the error in the coding.
