Obviously, there are differences between the GameCube and Nintendo 64 controllers. So there is going to be a little period where the controller will feel weird.

(I do feel that the change is good though.)

Although, viewing the players at E3, it became appearent that they got used to the controller easily. Maybe it wasn't that big of a deal....

This time around, the X and Y Buttons are used for jumping. We're really proud of this new addition to the controller. The way it is designed makes it easy for the player to press the A Button, and easily slide up to press the X or Y buttons to jump. Of course, using the Control Stick to jump is still an option. (I knew it would be good to keep.)

The cross-like D-Pad, and the C Stick are not really used in this game, but if you fumble around with it on the menu screens, it becomes appearent that they are actually 3D.

See! Just like this.

Top Left: "Battle Game"

Selected Item: "Melee"

Below Melee: "Tournament Mode"

Below Tournament Mode: "Special Mode"

Below Special Mode: "Rule Modification Menu"

Below Rule Modification Menu: "Character Presentation"

At the Very Bottom in the Box: A Description of the Selected Item - "Battle Mode!" is Written

The C Stick actually has another use when you are actually playing the game, but that's a secret.

Special Operations

While Shield is Up, Quickly Press the Control Stick Down: Emergency Evade

You block the attack in place.

Quickly Press the R Trigger While in Mid-Air: Aerial Emergency Evade

While in mid-air you can swiftly dodge.

I would like to now remind you that the commands of the Smashh Brothers series are easy to do, so that even inexperianced players can get the hang of it.

Therefor, there are some techniques that you can do, without even knowing the commands. For example....

When Recieving Damage, Press the Control Stick: Control Where You Fly

Even if you get hit by the same attack....

You can actually change the direction in which you fly! How important is this? Ask players who use it. They should know, right?

When Recieving Damage, Press the Control Stick: Auto Stop Sliding

fox_blaster.jpg

When getting hit by an attack like this, just press the Control Stick, and....

You can slide away from the attack, so you can get out of it quicker. Of course, the old Auto Stop Slide works too....

Oh no! I've said so much for such a small article! This is becoming more and more like the Smash Arts page!

With this, I take my leave. Until next time!
