Here is how character customization will work in the new Super Smash Bros.
Players will have even more options when choosing their fighters of choice in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. in the forms of character and item customization.
In the latest entry on the official Super Smash Bros. website, we get a glimpse at how different moves can be altered and customized as well as items to change up each character's stats.
Each fighter possesses four special attacks; standard special, side special, up special, and down special. Each of these can be customized, however, so there are three variations for each direction. This means there are two classifications for special attacks: basic and custom.
In the image above, you can see Mario can have three different Fireball attacks. A standard one, a fast but probably weak one, and a slower but much more powerful one. It's important to note that it won't be possible to play online with a character with a customized moveset, unless you're playing with friends.
Characters can be customized even further with the use of gear. There will be three gear slots per character, and each gear piece will raise and lower certain attributes. Players can opt to hit harder but move slower, or be more agile but be knocked out of the ring easier.
Changing each character's gear however won't change their default look.
Super Smash Bros. is scheduled to come out on October 3rd for the 3DS, and this Fall for the Wii U.
