The 3DS might be a small console, but Super Smash Bros. is sounding suspiciously like the biggest game in the series yet, with the added bonus of being enjoyable on the go!

The premise of the Smash Bros series is simple - beat down on your opponent in a sidescrolling brawler until you're ready to hit them with a smash attack and send them flying off the stage! It's not just any old beat 'em up, though. The roster is made up of fighters from across Nintendo's entire line-up of games, and some come from even further afield than that!

Brand new to the series will be Mega Man, Little Mac, Pac-Man, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y's Greninja (the ultimate form of Froakie) and more! Returning characters that are confirmed include Zero Suit Samus, Sheik, Yoshi and Charizard. And, of course, the game wouldn't be complete without series classics such as Mario, Link and Kirby.

Online multiplayer is, of course, present and accounted for with up to four players able to duke it out.

The 3DS version has a couple of modes all to itself. In StreetSmasg you can battle against character tokens gathered via StreetPass, while Smash Run pits you against enemies in an epic labyrinth.
