Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, often called "Smash 4", is a fighting game for the Nintendo Wii U released in 2014. Like its predecessors, Smash 4 features gameplay unique from that of other fighting games. Compared to characters in other fighting games, Smash characters have simple movesets and lacked complex button inputs and lengthy combos. The gameplay focused on movement and knocking your opponent out of the arena.

The gameplay was designed to be a middle-ground between the faster, more competition-oriented Super Smash Bros. Melee and the slower and random Super Smash Bros. Brawl. While Melee is widely considered to be the best Smash game in the series, Smash 4 has overtaken it in tournament participants and cash prize pools. Despite that, event organizers usually host Melee and Smash 4 tournaments side-by-side, with many of the best Smash players registering for both.
