Super Smash Bros. Smash Wars is the fourth installment in the Super Smash Bros. series of crossover fighting games. It is the first game in the Super Smash Bros. series to feature Star Wars characters, like Darth Vader. Some characters from the Kingdom Hearts series will be in the game as well. This game will also feature two different playable characters in each home system. Mitsurugi and Nightmare will be playable for the Xbox 360. Also, Spider-Man and Venom will be selectable for the PlayStation 3. For the Nintendo Wii, Mecha Sonic will be playable, so will Mecha Mario.

However, it has been announced on February 14, 2009 that players can get all these characters on their game systems. For example, Mitsurugi, and Nightmare are downloadable on the PlayStation 3 and are unlockable for the Wii. Also, Spider-Man and Venom are downloadable on the Xbox 360 and are unlockable for the Wii. And finally, Mecha Sonic and Mecha Mario are downloadable on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. To unlock Mitsurugi, Nightmare, Spider-Man, and Venom for the Wii, the player has to beat Event Match 92: Smashfall without losing any lives on hard difficulty.
