Upcoming Super Smash Bros. Games to Feature Moveset Customization

Players can now add their personal touch to the character's attacks.

The option to customize movesets from a catalogue attacks will be included in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, game director Masahiro Sakurai confirmed during today's special Nintendo Direct.

Players will be able to make adjustments to each character's default moveset, with examples including a larger, slower Fireball for Mario, a more powerful but longer-to-charge Headbutt for Donkey Kong and a variation on Kirby's Swallow ability that instead freezes the opponent in a block of ice. These customizations can be employed in both local and online play, although only in the 'With Friends' sub-section of the latter mode.

More details on this brand new feature will be revealed some time in the near future.

Hm, this could be interesting. It's a nice way to add more moves in the game without making the controls more complex.

That will make tournament play pretty interesting.

I wonder how that community is reacting.

I'd imagine they like that Sakurai basically gave them their own mode, but the real test will be how well the characters are balanced, which we won't know until after release.

The mode is cool, but I'm wondering what the tourney rules will say about setting unique movesets.

Hell, that really changes things for Kirby if you can take out the suck/copy power and replace it.  You won't have to go into a match with him and think about copying an opponent.

Since tourny players want to suck all the fun out of the game, they will be lame and say you can't change the movesets.

This sounds awesome. Actually the entire game sounds amazing.
