This week has been pretty lackluster when it comes to news, so I thought I would bring back an old feature to help us as we make it into the final week before the release of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS.

But before we get into the question from this week, let’s take a look at the opinions from last QotW, even though it was over a year ago! Was revealing Rosalina as a secret character of Super Mario 3D World before the release of the game a good idea? Most of you thought it was, mainly because it would have been leaked or found before release anyway, while others said it was a motivating factor in buying the game. Moving onto this week…


How will you deal with the Japanese release of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS next week?


Super Smash Bros. for 3DS will be released in Japan in one week from today on September 13. Japanese retailers should be getting (or already have) their shipments of the game, so it’s only a matter of time before someone gets their hands on an early copy. Next week (or possibly even this weekend) will be a hectic one for the Smash community.


How are you preparing to deal with all the news that will come next week? Are you going to try and avoid spoilers? Are you keeping your eyes glued for any leaks or new tidbits of info? Are you going into hibernation until October or setting up your virtual camp? Regardless, of what you do, next week will be big.


Looking at what we already know, not including the leak from a few weeks back, we have so much information on characters, stages, modes, and more that I’m not even sure how much there is left to spoil. Obviously there are still characters and stages to be seen, but is there anything really that big that we have left to see? This isn’t me being rhetorical, I’m really asking! What is there left that we have to see?

And when do you think we will get hit with all the news? This weekend? A few days before release? After release? What will this upcoming PotD week look like? Reveals left and right or simple images to keep the secrets secret?

A lot of questions this week. Feel free to answer whichever ones you want!  Also, don’t forget to enter our Super Smash Bros. for 3DS Giveaway!
