Super Smash Bros 3DS - Outline Comparison on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

To outline or not to outline, that is the question when it comes to Super Smash Bros on Nintendo 3DS.

As previously highlighted, the forthcoming portable debut for the hugely successful Nintendo fighter will feature outlines around characters to help keep eyes well focused on the action. The intensity and thickness of the lines can be tinkered with, though, with the option to even turn them off all-together.
