Today’s pic of the day from Masahiro Sakurai’s Director’s Room gives us a look at the classic mode on the Wii U, which is set up like a battle coliseum. Sakurai explains how to join battles, and what the clusters mean, and follows with another image showing what happens when fighters lose! Check out the posts and images below, and let us know if you’re ready for classic mode battles on the Wii U.

After each battle, the fighters that lost get blown away!! The fighters remaining on the field will once again team up with other fighters on the field. You can actually choose fighters you’ve blown away to join your team in team battles. A rival will always appear in this mode, and the longer that character survives, the stronger it will get.
