My idea for a new Smash Run

Recommended Posts

I just thought of a brilliant idea: what if WoL never existed, and Smash Run came back?

Here’s a slightly altered take of mine on Smash Run; firstly, the most noticeable change would be that the whole thing takes place in Dracula’s Castle (the Castlevania one) so naturally, it’s big in size.

The idea is the same as in Smash for 3DS. Except instead of special items to equip before each Smash Run session, you equip Spirits before. And instead of collecting stat boosts from City Trial, you earn normal gameplay items by either defeating enemies or hitting candles.

Whenever you see a red door (taken straight from Subspace Emissary), you’ll enter a random challenge. When you succeed in that challenge, you’ll earn a Spirit that’s rarer than others. When you fail, you get booted right back onto the main map.

When you see a red door covered in dark mist, a mini-boss (some of them Assist Trophy characters) awaits beyond it for a chance to earn more Spirits and other goodies. When you see a purple door (taken from the Subspace levels) in that same mist, a normal boss awaits for a chance to earn an extremely rare Spirit. All of the normal bosses found in Classic Mode are here, plus Queen Sectonia and Grima.

Before any door, you get a preview above said door of what the challenges are going to be or which boss or mini-boss you’re going to face. There are also stars next to the title of each challenge, determining the difficulty.

1 star=Easy

2 star=Normal

3 star=Hard

When the timer runs out (5:00 again, just like the 3DS game), the fighters are presented with one final challenge that either has all of them at once or in separate screens. Unlike the 3DS version, up to 8 players (human or CPU) can participate.

Here is where the main meat of this hypothetical mode lies:
