GameSpot — 8/10

“I found so many tender fun in my time with Super Smash Bros. 3DS. And even yet we played to a indicate where we was literally in pain, we didn’t have to keep personification Smash Bros. 3DS. we wanted to.” – Daniel Starkey [Full review]

Joystiq — 4.5/5

“While there are clear areas where Nintendo could urge on Super Smash Bros. in an unavoidable sequel, this is a many feature-complete, constrained Super Smash Bros. entrance to date. It stands right alongside Fire Emblem: Awakening and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds as a diversion that each 3DS owners should play. Even if we can’t find a well-spoken online match, a resources of single-player and internal multiplayer options will keep Super Smash Bros. uninformed for months to come, and that’s even before we cruise a countless unlockable characters, trophies, items, and any intensity DLC a developers competence have planned.” – Earnest Cavalli [Full Review]

Eurogamer — 7/10

“The outlandish animations continue to pleasure as a hours pass, and a unusually inexhaustible drip-feed of new items, stages, modes, and characters will pull we behind in over and over again. This is a lovingly done game, filled with a fruits of tough and caring labour. But it is also a diversion built on positively diseased foundations. Anyone who’s pulled off Nagare Namikawa’s synchronised swimming finishing pierce in a Rival Schools array or played a Sega Saturn’s Pocket Fighter will know that humour and disrespect can be elegantly total with stout fighting mechanics. Super Smash Bros. manages usually a humour. Away from a village concentration of a radio screen, it’s a many weaker joke.” – Simon Parkin [Full Review]

GamesBeat — 97/100

“You can never tell how good a fighting diversion will unequivocally be until a open has time to master it, though Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS has all it needs to finally get a rival village to pierce on from Melee. The new characters are excellent, and a gameplay is smooth, fast, and exciting. Even if you’re a some-more infrequent Smash fan, you’ll adore all that a 3DS chronicle offers. It’s a ideal handheld iteration of one of Nintendo’s biggest franchises.” – Mike Minotti [Full Review]

IGN — 88/100

“The initial handheld installment of a glorious Super Smash Bros. array lives adult to impossibly high standards. Like a console siblings, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS elegantly packages decades of Nintendo’s best video diversion mascots into a pick-up-and-play unstable game. But a genuine warn here is a different modes of play that’ve kept me personification feverishly for days.” – Jose Otero [Full Review]

VideoGamer — 9/10

“Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is positively a warn package. Packing a estimable volume of calm and a same illusory gameplay as a home console siblings, it gives a stirring Wii U chronicle an awful lot to live adult to.” – Brett Phipps [Full Review]
