Revolution is a direct sequel to Uprising, and takes place 4 years after it. Several new enemy types arise to face off against Skyworld and the human world, and potentially even the Underworld army. Like its predecessor, each Chapter will usually consist of an Air Battle, Ground Mission and a Boss Battle. Some mini-bosses will appear in the Air or Ground segments before the final boss of the Chapter, however. There are also different types of Ground Missions. As with the previous game, there are different arcs to the chapters.

Together Mode

Team Battle


In this game mode, 3 players will be on each team and their goal is to lower the team health gauge down to zero, and the last player to be defeated acquires the role of either Pit or Dark Pit.

Destroy the Towers

3 players each will be placed on the Red/Green/Blue Teams with the task of lowering the opposing team's towers' defense. Players may die as often as they want with no penalty, but once one of their team's tower's health is gone, they will all lose.

Gather the Hearts Teams

Two teams will have to collect hearts that are found by damaging or killing an opponent, or just by finding them on the map. At the end of five minutes whichever team with the most hearts wins.



It's an all out match where there can only be one victor! The one with the most kills will win the match.

Gather the Hearts

The same rules as the Team version, though there will only be one winner.
