Super Smash Bros. for WiiU and 3DS will allow you to play against anyone online. You can not only play with friends but people around the world. While playing friends online through the recommended fast wireless access point you can play any way you want! 

While playing with people around the world you have two options to choose from, For Fun and For Glory.

In For Fun mode, stages are selected at random (although no Final Destination for this mode), you can use all items available, and wins will only be recorded. If you are playing For Glory, all battles are on Final Destination, you get NO extra items, you will play 1-on-1 battles, and both wins and losses are both recorded. 

Nintendo also made it impossible to play a match anonymously, therefore making bans for misconduct much more likely. Director Masahiro Sakurai stated that he hopes they “can create an online environment where everyone can enjoy themselves.”

Super Smash Bros. is looking to be an exciting release with the 3DS version coming in Summer of 2014 and the WiiU version later this year. Are you looking forward to the game and its online modes?
