Nintendo has provided an updated release date schedule for the upcoming "Super Smash Bros 4" and other games for the Wii U. According to a report from Ninty Buzz on July 31, the publisher revealed that the crossover fighting game is still slated to arrive later this year during the winter season. Unfortunately, a more specific date was not provided.

At around the same time, the publisher is also releasing "Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker." The new game is based on the small puzzle levels found in last year's title, "Super Mario 3D World." Furthermore, Nintendo is planning to package "NES Remix" and "NES Remix 2" together as a retail release before the end of the year.

Finally, the company has two major releases coming out in the near future. The first is "Hyrule Warrior," a "Dynasty Warriors" spin-off to "The Legend of Zelda" series that will be released on Sept. 26. In the next month, the high-definition console will be getting "Bayonetta 2," which is being bundled with the first game.

The biggest release of the year by Nintendo will most likely be "Super Smash Bros 4" for Wii U. The fighting game features characters, stages and items from multiple first-party intellectual properties in addition to some third-party franchises. The video game is also incorporating Amiibos, new action figures that can be used in various ways across multiple software products. For the latest "Super Smash Bros" release, data on a fighter's artificial intelligence can be stored onto the figure, allowing players to pit the computer-controlled characters against each other.

"Super Smash Bros 4" is coming out first on the 3DS as the handheld game will be released on Oct. 3. The two versions have different visuals and various sets of contents. However, the core gameplay remains largely the same. A screen of the video game on the Wii U (from the series' official Facebook page) can be viewed near the top of this article.
