Players 1-4


[edit] Description

Smash Run is a 3DS exclusive game mode for Super Smash Bros. In this game mode players must first fight through a labyrinth with a time limit of five minutes. After the five minutes are up, the players enter one of a few game modes, each with different stipulations. Examples of this are spawning with 300%, racing to the top of a structure, and having projectiles reflect off of players. During the five minutes in Smash Run, players defeat a variety of enemies and collect power-ups, buffing their character in the process. Hints about the follow-up match may be revealed throughout, so players can focus on getting power-ups that would help them with that match specifically. Events may also randomly be activated.

[edit] Versus Modes

[edit] Reflect Smash

When playing Reflect Smash all projectiles are automatically reflected by your character.

[edit] High-Launch Smash

When playing High-Launch Smash every hit will send a character flying in the air.

[edit] Climb!

When playing Climb! players have to race up as fast as they can and get as high as possible within a given time limit. Jump boosts are recommended for this match, and characters that can jump high or fly have an advantage.

[edit] Run!

When playing Run! players race to the finish line on a mainly-horizontal path. Speed boosts are recommended for this match. There are speed boosts that can be picked up throughout, as well as hazards which, if touched, spawn players back a bit.

[edit] Boosts

In Smash Run there are six types of boosts to collect:

Arms: increases the strength of projectiles, item attacks, and throws, and healing items recover more. Also, grabbing range is increased, and the player becomes less likely to drop items when attacked
Speed: increases dashing speed, walking speed, and air speed
Attack: increases the power of all normal attacks
Defense: increases either weight or knockback resistance, and shield becomes harder to break while the timing for a perfect shield becomes easier to hit
Jump: increases jumping height and falling speed
Special: increases the power of all special attacks, while some moves can gain increased range or have charging time decrease

[edit] Events


Throughout the five minutes of Smash Run, events can randomly activate. These events range from all players getting temporary power-up boosts to hordes of enemies and more powerful creatures appearing. Hints about the upcoming match can also be revealed, giving players a heads up about which power-ups to try collecting.
