Super Smash Bros. Vortex is a fighting game for the Wii U. It is the 5th Super Smash Bros. game in the SSB series. The game is planned to be released in mid-2014. Some people call it SSBV, because Super Smash Bros. Vortex is too long, for some people.

Super Smash Bros. Vortex will be made, after Kirby's Dreamland 3D has been completed. It has  a few characters from the game and involves various enemies from it too.


The game plays the same as previous installments, but SSBV is especially based on Super Smash Bros. Brawl (SSBB). Players fight against one another, on stages based off famous Nintendo series. Each character has their own Final Smash, based on their game history. The player wins by knocking their opponents off the screen. Moves like taunting and attacking also return. However, the game also uses the Wii U Gamepad. Players can use items by using the Touch Screen. The player can also control and select the characters, stages, or options in Super Smash Bros. Vortex. It takes over most of the Wii Remote's functions. The game is much easier to play, when you use the original Wii Remotes or the Wii Remotes and Nunchuck, then it is with the Wii U GamePad.

The game has the same ways of attacking, taunting etc. as Brawl. Most characters have the same movesets from the previous games, but some have new moves, even if they are Veterans.

Every character has advantages over some characters and disadvantages over others. But some characters are equal, meaning they do average damage, on the opposing character. No charatcer beats everyone in Super Smash Bros. Vortex, although Tabuu has the advantage over most characters.

SSBV features a shopping system. This is a virtual shop, which lets you purchase many items, such as costumes, some characters, vitamins, levels to play on, extended story lines,, the list is endless. The costumes are super cheap, while the characters and extended story lines are expensive. The shop can only be obtained after you unlock 5 SSBV brawlers.

In SSBV you can buy and/or unlock Costumes. These 'Costumes' can be worn only by the Mii's. They give the Mii the ability to change their Standard B, Up B, Down B and Side B. The costumes are easy to but, because they only  cost 1 Smash Coin, or for non SSBV brawlers, 2 Smash Coins. They can be unlocked, by finding the brawler in Story Mode. The non SSBV brawler costumes can only be purchased, but occasionally there might be sales, meaning you can get 2 non SSBV brawler costumes, for the price of one. There are twenty non SSBV brawler costumes, to buy.

Controls (Wii Remote & Nunchuk)

Every character has a unique moveset, but all of the characters have the same amount of moves.

-General Moves

Players move around the stages using the Analogue Stick, and can jump by pressing the C Button. It is possible to jump again in the air a single time. Some characters also have the ability to multi-jump in the air. By pressing the Analogue Stick downwards, the player can crouch or move a layer down on the stage. By tapping the Analogue stick twice (in different directions) very quickly, you can perform a Dodge, which lets you avoid most attacks. By double tapping the Analogue Stick (in the same direction) you can start to run around.

-Smash Attacks

Smash Attacks, which are the basic attacks for each character, they are performed with the A Button or the B Button. When moving the Analogue Stick to a direction, the player can attack upwards, downwards or to either sides, these moves are all different based on the direction you are attacking. When the A Button is pressed repeatedly, the character performs a standard combo, a fast sequence of weak attacks. When the Analogue Stick is tilted, fast and  the B or A Button is pressed at the same time, the player can perform a Super Smash Attack. Super Smash Attacks are very powerful which cause a lot of damage, to nearby enemies. The A Button is always a close up attack, while the B Button could be any type of attack. There are also sky attacks. Sky attacks are basic attacks, which can be performed while in mid-air, by pressing the A or B Button. Most characters have the ability to attack while running, which can deal decent damage.

-Item Use

Items appear on the stage at random and can be used by the players. Items have various effects and some trigger by themselves. They can also grant players with special effects like items that explode on contact, or a use for a weapon, instead of the average A Button. When the players are standing next to an item, they can press the A Button to pick the items up and press the Minus Button to throw it away. Some weapons have ammo, in them. This means you only get a certain amount of time to use a weapon. By running and clicking Minus, you are able to peg the item at the direction you are facing.


By pressing the Z Button, the player can activate his/her shield. Shields can be used to prevent most attacks from a character or an item. Grabbing someone who is using their shield will break through their shield and the target can be thrown like a ragdoll. The shield's power decreases every time it is used, and when the shield break the player will be unable to move for a short amount of time, because of the confusion. All characters have different coloured shields, these shield look like neon/ glowing spheres in many colours. First player has a red shield, Second player has a blue, Third player has a yellow and Fourth player has a green shield. Shields also change colours based on their team colours (red, blue or green).


Every character has 3 different taunts. These taunts are used for multiple reasons, for example to sign your victory after you defeat an enemy or sometimes you can use it to receive rewards. You can taunt any time in a battle. To do a taunt all you have to do is press 1, 2 or 1, 2 at the same time.


Super Smash Bros. Vortex has a total of 50 Characters, 18 of them are Default and 32 of them are unlockable. As well as this, you can get Samus' Suit, Ancient Minister, Ticken, Poppant as Transforming Characters. Transforming Characters can be turned into by using Special Moves, or the characters Down Special. There are many new characters in SSBV. In SSBV there are also 10 Downloadable Characters, one every week will be available.
