We were able to catch small glimpse of the new stage creator mode in the recent Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Direct, and boy did it look different from the Brawl version. Stages can now be 100% custom with completely hand drawn lay outs instead of only being able to use preloaded tile designs. These stages can also be shared online allowing for a virtually limitless experience. For those of you curious as to how the design progress is going to work, the guys over at IGN have released a video showcasing just that.

Earlier today we polled our readers to see what you think about future DLC in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, and an overwhelming majority is in favor! While some only want DLC if it's free (after all, Nintendo doesn't want players to feel like they're not getting the full game at launch), most agree that DLC could benefit the Smash series. I would also like to see future DLC support, and I don't mind opening up my wallet either. Of course, there's one condition: Nintendo needs to support Super Smash Bros. with more than just new characters for DLC. Hit the jump to read on!

Despite the constant pleas of eager fans, Metroid villain Ridley will not be playable in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, but will still play an important role. Rather than just being a typical stage boss, Ridley can fight on your side if you deal enough damage to him. He can also turn into Meta Ridley, and you can even score a point if you KO him! Our good friends over at GameXplain have released some footage of Ridley in action, and you can check it out by clicking below!

Super Smash Bros. For Wii U is certainly shaping up to be one brilliant game. We've got footage of some of the new stages that will be included, such as Mario Galaxy, Skyloft, Final Destination, and many more!

And these are only some of the stages — there are a lot more to come, both old and new. That's not even taking into account possible DLC stages.

Project CARS, a crowd-funded game from developer Slightly Mad Studios, was initially slated to launch later this year, but has since been pushed back. First it was announced that the Wii U version was delayed until 2015, and then the other versions followed suit. A new trailer for the game has been released, and it ends with a March 20 release date for all platforms except the Wii U version, which will launch later. You can check out the trailer by clicking below!

Indie developer Nexis Games recently unveiled a Minecraft-inspired Wii U exclusive game called UCraft with a targeted Holiday 2014 release date. For those excited about UCraft, we have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that a new trailer has been released, promising sixteen player support, frequent updates, and more. The bad news is that the game has been delayed and is now targeting a quarter two (April-June) 2015 launch. You can check out the new trailer by clicking below!

One of the biggest stories from Thursday's Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Direct presentation was the announcement that fan favorite Mewtwo is returning as a playable character. If you buy both the 3DS and Wii U version of the game, you'll receive the powerful legendary Pokémon for free on both versions. 

Although not specifically stated, it's believed that Mewtwo will still be available to those who don't have both versions as paid DLC, and we want to know what you think of the potential for more Smash DLC in the future. Should Smash be supported with DLC like Mario Kart 8, Hyrule Warriors, and other recent Nintendo titles? Hit the jump to cast your vote and join the debate!

Most Super Smash Bros. fans will tell you that the GameCube controller is the best option for the game, and in that spirit Nintendo has released an adapter that lets you use the GameCube controller on Wii U. However, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U also has an eight player mode now, and the adapter only supports four controllers. Fear not, Smash fans! Wii U can support two adapters for a total of eight GameCube controllers, so even if you've got eight players, everyone can use one if they want to. 

I don't know about you, but I'm pretty pumped for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U after the recent Nintendo Direct (you can catch a recap of the presentation here), and I can't wait to get my hands on the game! Unfortunately there's a little less than a month left until launch still, but as an early treat we have the game's opening cinematic. You can check it out by clicking below!

We've recently been hearing a lot about the features that amiibo will bring to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. Everything from how they are used to the fact that they have "personalities" has been revealed by Nintendo. Now, with the official announcement of 8-Player Smash, there is a brand new trailer showcasing the use of amiibo in that game mode.
