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.

Many of us writers are still recovering from the outburst of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U news released as part of the Nintendo Direct yesterday. I'm sure many of you are trying to recover as well, so today's Daily Delib will be a simple one. Out of all the Smash Bros. news announced yesterday, which one story was your favorite and why? If you need a reminder of everything the Direct covered, you can check out our recap!

I, for one, think the Jungle Hijinx stage reveal was the most impressive. New stages are very exciting and can introduce some interesting (and hopefully, fun) mechanics. The dual-plane mechanic provided in Jungle Hijinx will certainly alter how you fight, as it adds another layer of strategy to the game. Let us know your thoughts inside!

A couple of weeks back we learned that Xbox boss Phil Spencer is re-thinking his company's parity clause. Under this rule, independent developers looking to release their game on Xbox One cannot release on another platform first; it has to hit Xbox first (including a simultaneous multiplatform release) or not at all. Understandably this stance has caused some controversy, so Microsoft may end up ditching it in time. Meanwhile, Nintendo's Ed Valiente recently spoke at the Italian Game Developers Summit and assured attendees that this and other restrictive policies are not present on Nintendo platforms. Hit the jump to see what he had to say!

My goodness, last night was crazy.

Yesterday, a massive truckload of Super Smash Bros. For Wii U was dumped on us (read: Mewtwo was announced as a future DLC character) in the form of a Nintendo Direct. GameXplain has compiled over 250 screenshots in a 20-minute video, filled with stages old and new, characters and everything in-between. 

There is a lot to look at, so head past the jump to watch the video!

With yesterday's Super Smash Bros. Direct, we received a lot of information amount Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. From this Direct, we have compiled a list of all the songs that can be found within the game. There's some we couldn't identify, so if you notice we're missing one, feel free to point it out so we can add it!

If you've checked one of our media outlets over the past few hours, you probably noticed the massive influx of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U news.

A "How To Play" page discussing the My Music section of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U has revealed a new stage. If you look closely enough at the stage selection, though, something peculiar might catch your eye. That's right! One of the stages able to be selected is none other than Kongo Jungle from the original Super Smash Bros. In case you can't see it, it's the leftmost stage on the third row from the top.

Today's Nintendo Direct, which focused solely on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, gave us a closer look at the 34 playable stages in the game — one of which, Miiverse, will not be playable until a later date. It's very easy to see that the Wii U version of the game will have much larger stages to accommodate the recently announced 8-Player Smash mode, as well as some exclusive stages of its own.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the Masterpiece mode allowed players to experience limited demos of some of the fighters' past games. Unfortunately, they were bogged down with long load times, no integration with the Virtual Console, and the inevitability of not being featured on the 3DS release. However, with the Wii U iteration's release, we are getting Masterpiece mode improved, better than ever! Near-instant load times, eShop integration, and a large selection of video games from different eras will certainly make up for its issues in Brawl. Hit the jump to see all of the games featured!
