Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS launches this week in North America. The game is already receiving rave reviews and pushing sales pretty hard for Nintendo. Fans who want to jump in and find out what they need to do and how they need to do it in order to unlock all the characters in the game will find it available right here in this guide.
YouTube user Arekkz Gaming offers up a five-minute video on how to effectively setup the matches to work in your favor and so you can blast through the matches quickly in order to unlock all the characters. In total you'll need to play 120 matches to unlock each of the hidden characters. The best way to do that is to set the difficulty level to '1' and then turn the stocks down to '1'. You proceed to either turn-off items or only turn on the baseball bat (as Arekkz suggested) and then pick a small stage with edges you can easily fall off. However, for the item, the hammer might actually be the better item since it's pretty powerful and makes the job even easier yet.
Here's a list of who you unlock after completing so many matches in the game, courtesy of YouTube user Community Game.
Play 10 Vs. Matches to unlock Ness
Play 20 Vs. Matches to unlock Falco
Play 30 Vs. Matches to unlock Wario

The Super Smash Bros. game for the Nintendo 3DS is currently available in Japan, and has already managed to sell more than 1.2 million units, according to a report by Venture Beat. While there were a lot of common reports that the Wii U was dying and over with, if Super Smash Bros., along with the recently released Hyrule Warriors and the upcoming Bayonetta 2 sell anywhere near as well as Smash Bros. on the 3DS, then I think Nintendo will be just fine.
