On October third this year Super Smash Brothers will be released for the Nintendo 3DS. As a result of a promotion by Nintendo via their Club Nintendo I was able to get a download code for the games demo. With a confirmed roster of 48 characters to choose from the demo only allowed selection of five characters. Those being Mario from the Super Mario Brothers series, Link from The Legend of Zelda, and Pikachu from the Pokémon Series. These three are returning characters. The two new characters to the roster include Megaman from the Megaman series and The Villager from Animal Crossing. Although there were only five characters out of the 48 I have at least five hours invested in the demo. I was very impressed with the game as a whole. The combat was very fluid and extremely fun. All five characters move sets were well done; especially the two newcomers to the series. Megaman and the Villager. It took a lot of time to understand the Villagers move set, but after a little bit of playing it becomes clear that the villager is quite the character. As a side note, the Villagers lifeless eyes left me feeling a bit unsettled.
