Even after trying the E3 demo, in the back of my head I still worried that Super Smash Bros. for 3DS (urgh, what a bad name) would just not work. I don’t have a specific reason to justify this fear; it was a vague “Man, how will Nintendo turn this huge, complicated game into something that works on a portable system”?
While this new iteration of the Smash series was clearly built from the ground up to work on a tiny system, there’s nothing tiny about it: it’s super meaty! It’s full of content, and the game plays and looks better than its predecessor.
