Bumped to the top for reminder!

Not too long ago, it was announced that Nintendo will be listening to the many Smash fans to help determine future DLC fighter additions to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U via an online ballot. To celebrate this wondrous occasion we at NintyBuzz want to put your imagination to the test once again, however instead of creating a fan-made Mario Kart 8 track, you’ll be thinking up your very own fighter pack for Smash Bros. If you create a submission that really stands out, then you could win an Amiibo of your choice.

Find out all the details of this smashing competition after the break!

The brief for this competition is to create a fighter pack for Super Smash Bros. But what is a fighter pack, you ask? Well, it’s my own unofficial term for the individual fighter, their movesets and their ‘home stage’.


For the character, just take any character from any video game (including those on non-Nintendo consoles) and say why you want that character in Smash. Next, you should make up your own movies for this character. All we require for this are the four different special attacks (Special Neutral, Special Up, Special Down and Special Left/Right) as well as their Final Smash. Finally, my favourite part, think up your own stage based on that character or franchise.

Feel free to draw any pictures to help your submission, but art isn’t necessarily require, nor will it guarantee high results. Remember, you can easily paint a picture with words.

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
