Right about now, reviews for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U should be going up throughout various gaming websites. So our audience may be asking: Where's the Shacknews review? The answer for that is very simple: the game's online component is not ready at this time.
Anyone who has played Super Smash Bros. Brawl recalls that the game's online component was a major issue and one that largely dragged down the overall experience. When combined with the fact that the online for Super Smash Bros. for 3DS started off with its own set of problems (as indicated by our review), Shacknews has made the judgement call to hold off on our review for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U until we could take our copy of the game online.
Look for our full Super Smash Bros. for Wii U review to go up Friday morning. In the meantime, the Shacknews video crew has their own copy of the game ready to check out. Watch them play through the game on our Twitch channel.
