Music to my ears
This past weekend, Super Smash Brothers director Masahiro Sakurai reveled on the Nintendo Miiverse a unique (and sure to be fan favorite) feature for the upcoming 3DS version. The new feature is a built-in music player. Here's what Sakurai had to say about this new feature:
The 3DS version has an excellent Sounds collection! The design looks nice for a sound test screen, doesn't it? The font color for the "Remix" text on remixed songs comes in pink or white. The pink ones are songs arranged for this version of Super Smash Bros., while the white ones are remixes made in earlier Smash Bros. games. This means there are reoccurring songs from past releases.
This new feature will allow 3DS owners to choose and customize their music playlists while playing the game, similar to any current portable music device. The highlight of this feature is what Sakurai calls "Play in Sleep Mode". Turning this mode on, songs will continue to play even when your system is closed! While in this mode, the player can change between songs using the L and R buttons. It is essentially transforming the 3DS into a miniature boom-box!
Just to add a cherry to the top of all this news, a selection of music tracks is now available on the Smash Brothers website for your audio delight.
October 3rd cannot come fast enough.
