Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U are fighting video games developed by Sora Ltd. and Bandai Namco Games and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U video game consoles. The two games respectively represent the fourth and fifth installments in the Super Smash Bros. series of games, which features characters from various Nintendo franchises.
While both versions of the game feature identical gameplay and the same roster of characters, there are various differences between the 3DS and Wii U versions. The Wii U version features high-definition visuals, whereas the 3DS version features stereoscopic 3D graphics with optional cel-shaded outlines to make characters more visible. Certain stages, trophies, and assist trophies are exclusive to each version of game, with the Wii U version primarily featuring elements taken from console titles and the 3DS version taking elements primarily from handheld games.
