Super Smash BrosNintendo has confirmed a plethora of game modes set to appear in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. While some old favorites return, new modes will also make their way into the brawl.

Though the basic fighting formats are returning, Timed and Stock battles, Coin Battles are also making a return. Additionally, Stamina battles will have you slugging it out until your fighter’s hit points reach zero.

Classic Mode
Classic mode finds you fighting a series of battles until you reach the final showdown. Though the mode appears in both the 3DS and upcoming Wii U version, they’ll be very different experiences.

Unlike the 3DS version where you were able to choose a progression path, the Wii U version will advance you between stages based on how well you survive each encounter. You’ll be ranked among the winners of various battles and have to dominate the final match.

To add fuel to that fire, you’ll also be assigned a rival, and have to fend off challengers coming for you, ensuring there a plenty of random events that pop up. You’ll also be able to tailor your experience by adjusting the difficulty, but of course, the more intense the battles the better your reward.

Additionally, Classic mode will support cooperative play, so you can clear the mode with a friend and both earn some trophies.

All-Star Mode
In All-Star mode you’ll face all the fighters in the game while being handicapped by a limited number of healing items.

While the same mode on the 3DS version had you fighting opponents in the order in which they were created, the Wii U version will flip the script, requiring you to beat the newest fighters before facing the veterans.

The rest area has also received an update, as it will now feature a coliseum in the background displaying trophy versions of the fighters you’ve bested.

All-Star mode allows for two-player cooperation, so you won’t be alone as you go through the paces.

Event Mode
Event mode revolves around themed battles. For example, using Pac-Man’s Final Smash to chomp through enemies, or fighting multiples of a single character. By clearing these stages out, you’ll move forward along a progression path on the overarching grid.

Two-player event battles are also included, where a fighting duo will take on special events created specifically for a cooperative team.

Target Blast
Target Blast gives you a time bomb to launch toward targets, blowing them up and earning points with up to four players. The mode will feature three different types of stages, and your scores will reflect your global Smash Power.

However, the Wii U version of Target Blast will differ from the 3DS version in that the second bomb you launch will be larger, heavier, and with a much greater explosion. You’ll need to practice in order to learn how to use both versions of the bomb.

Nintendo has also revealed a brand-new game mode called Smash Tour, where up to four players battle it out on a Mario Party-esque board game.
