With Super Smash Bros. 3DS now available in Japan, Masahiro Sakurai continues to share new details about the game’s many modes. According to a report by Gamenguide from Sept. 15, Sakurai went to Miiverse to disclose new information about a new online game mode found in Super Smash Bros. 4 for Nintendo 3DS known as Conquest Mode. This mode is currently in beta, but is available in Japan and will be available in other regions on launch day.
While sharing this information on Miiverse, Masahiro Sakurai went into detail and described the newly revealed online multiplayer mode for Smash Bros. 4 on Nintendo 3DS. According to Sakurai, Conquest Mode tracks global wins of specific teams over the course of a limited time and will then determine a victor. Players contribute to this mode by selecting a participating fighter from the ‘With Anyone’ online option. Every match win will help that character’s chances of being named the victor. Find Sakurai’s full explanation of Conquest Mode below:
Now that the game is out in Japan, the Conquest mode will be available in online multiplayer in the Japanese version. This is what the title screen will look like for the overseas version. In this mode, the game aggregates global wins among specific teams during a limited time and determines the victor. If you choose a participating fighter from the With Anyone option, you’ll automatically participate in Conquest. We’ll be running Conquest in beta for a while.
Of course, some may lose on purpose, but the development team will remove such losses from the Conquest Mode victor calculations – so don’t waste your time trying to sabotage the game mode. Also, Sakurai emphasizes that this is a global mode, so don’t put too much pressure on yourself in trying to get your favorite character to win. Find Sakurai’s full comments below:
Also, Conquest data where players seem to be losing on purpose will be removed from the calculations. And lastly, there’s no point in working on this mode too much on your own, so don’t overdo it…
