Recently on Friday of this week Super Smash Bros for Wii U has been released. If you thought broken game releases on the PS4 and Xbox one were cool. You don't know what your missing from Smash Bros on the Wii U. For starters it's 60 frames per second and runs in 1080p. That's a plus when you look at recent popular games like Call Of Duty Advance Warefare (PS4) which runs at 1080p and the frame rate drops down dramatically on campaign. But those frame rates and graphics resolutions aren't holding the game from show casing over 40 fighters to chose from.
