The new Super Smash Bros game is coming this summer--on Nintendo 3DS, at least. Game director Masahiro Sakurai confirmed that the 3DS version will be shipping first, coming this summer. The Wii U version will ship later this year, this winter.

Both versions of the game share the same roster, however there are different stages between the two. In addition, the 3DS version runs with an optional cartoon border meant to emphasize the characters when presented in 3D.

Sakurai also confirmed that most of the 3DS version will run at 60fps, while certain elements (like assist trophies) will render at 30fps. Both versions will also support online play, obviously.

The 3DS version will feature an exclusive mode called "Smash Run." It's a 4-player battle game set in a dungeon-like stage full of power-ups to collect. Players will be able to explore the stage and collect power-ups for five minutes, and then battle with enhanced fighters.

You can watch the entire 40 minute announcement video here:

      O well we've waited this long I guess another delay isn't a bother except that it feels like they are probably getting people to buy it twice. Hard to believe you could ship for 3DS but not WiiU. No way I buy this on 3DS

        I dunno the Smash Run looks fun. Adds to the randomness but it feels based on decisions you made. I'd grab it.

      Darn, I was hoping to have some fun playing Smash Bros on the WiiU at ShackCon. Maybe we'll be able to get some 3DS matches in, since everyone attending now has 3DS'. :)

        If it's out before July, of course. I'm hoping for the same thing, because God, I'd love to get some matches in while I'm at Evo.

      They're making it at Namco Bandai? Weren't all the previous ones EAD Tokyo?

      I'm guessing the addition of Mewtwo or Ganondorf is highly unlikely at this point :(

        There's still plenty of time to introduce new characters, and they're unlikely to let the hype die down as we get closer to the release.

          They haven't even confirmed Captain Falcon yet, so you'd have to think the reveals aren't over yet.
