Super Smash Bros. on 3DS will feature a noticeably different art style than its console brethren, but if black outlines are a bit too much, it appears you'll be able to turn them off.
The upcoming 3DS incarnation of Super Smash Bros. features a distinctively different look than its console counterpart. Some might have noticed its more stylized art direction, utilizing black outlines for each character. If that look is too distracting, however, it appears that players will be able to set shut the outlines off, to give the game a more traditional look.
Masahiro Sakurai jumped on Miiverse to show off a pair of 3DS Smash Bros screenshots, displaying characters with and without their outlines. Sakurai adds that enabling the black outlines will slightly affect how the characters come across in 3D.
You can find the screenshots, both with and without outlines, below.
How will you play Super Smash Bros. on 3DS?
Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what is video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

A 1 color blob is easier to see too...
The outlines make it easier to see.
hmmm, the outlines always seemed kinda weird. The left pic looks better to me. I also wonder how the outlines would look...
