The game is a 2.5D fighting game, as it features 2D gameplay with 3D models of the characters.

Players choose from either the Normal or Easy control schemes before selecting a character. Additional modes and online multiplayer are also available in the Wii U version.

Orginally, Nintendo Smash Stars was going to be 4 different games Nintendo would make as collaborations with Bandai Namco Games, Capcom, Sega, and Konami separately. This was to be a tribute to the inclusion of third-party characters in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. The ideas were merged together because Konami left the project, and the original projects were too similar to one another.
