With each passing day we draw closer to the much anticipated fall launch of Nintendo's next installment of the legendary Super Smash Bros. series. And the closer we get to launch, the more rumors will start to fly with supposed leaks and details about the new game.

From the highly coveted Amiibos that will be integrated into gameplay, to reported game and console bundles at launch, we've got you covered with the latest details of all things Smash.  

According to a report by Breathe Cast, apparently an anonymous Game Stop manager has spilled some very welcome (though unconfirmed) details regarding the upcoming title. The manager stated Super Smash Bros. for Wii U may initially available as a collector's bundle, and may include the new highly-touted Amiibos. 


If you haven't heard, Nintendo is going to begins selling tiny figurines of characters this fall called "Amiibos." Users will be able to introduce their Amiibo--like Mario, for instance--into a certain games, like Smash Bros., and either play as that character or play against that character, all in a bid to build up that character's stats.

The Amiibos will utilize near-field communication, or NFC, to communicate to either the Wii U console or a 3DS.  It's also rumored that each copy of Smash Bros. for Wii U may come with a free Amiibo. 


Rumors point to a November 21st launch date (which is Black Friday), and that would make a lot of sense for obvious reasons. But at this point, no one knows for sure when Smash Bros. will be released. 


According to an IGN report based on a preview of the game available at this year's E3 conference, the latest Smash Bros. installment is somewhere between the frenetic speed of Super Smash Bros. Mele and the more plodding and sometimes sluggish Brawl.

That's good news for faithful fans of the franchise, as it indicates a willingness or commitment by Nintendo to continue to tinker with a winning formula in order to arrive at a more balanced result. 

The E3 demo only featured 20 of the games total character list (rumored to be somewhere around 40 characters) and only 8 stages, yet according to IGN "it was enough to prove the latest installment's high quality." 

Some of the new characters include Little Mac (from NES's Mike Tyson's Punchout), the Wii Fit Trainer and Rosalina & Luma (from the Mario universe).
