Predecessor Super Smash Bros. Destruction
 Super Smash Bros. Annihilation is an upcoming sequel in the Super Smash Bros. Series. It is the 6th Game in the series after Super Smash Bros. Destruction. The game features a majority of returning characters to the series as well as several newcomers.



Movement is heavily dependent on what controller you are using, however for the majority it is the left (or only) analog stick, on a Wii Remote only controller it is the D-Pad. Movement allows the player to run, jump and duck. The player can also perform back switches, a technique where the player quickly switches from left to right and back to left (or vice versa), performing a quick movement which can trip opponents who are too close, however it leaves the player more open to projectile damage.

Attacking and Defending

In addition to Standard and Special Attacks, a new set of standard attacks referred to as Secondary attacks have been added. These attacks are weaker than their primary counterparts however can be executed more quickly as well as recovering from more quickly. Additionally each of the 6 supported controllers allows for a Controller Attack, a unique attack to that controller that varies with the controller. Below is a list of the Controller Attacks as well as a Table containing the Button Commands for various attacks.
