A central portion of the Super Smash Bros. 4 official site.
The official site for Super Smash Bros. 4 launched on June 11, 2013, shortly after the two games' E3 trailer. Like its predecessors, Smabura-Ken and the Smash Bros. DOJO!!, it is periodically updated with information on the games, but unlike its predecessors, the information is shown mostly through pictures instead of text.
The site gives information about all of the characters and shows videos and images in both Wii U and 3DS versions.
The language selection offered by the site includes English, Japanese, German, French, Italian and Spanish, like its predecessor Smash Bros. DOJO!!, in addition to the newly-added Portuguese, Dutch and Russian. For some languages, regional variations are available.
When a character is revealed, a banner under the daily photo that says "Warning! Challenger Approaching!" is added. It will remain there for a couple days. It is interesting to note that the amount of time the banner stays up seems to be dependent on how soon the next character will be revealed, though there is obviously a maximum and minimum timeframe.
 Character Pages
Each character confirmed for Super Smash Bros. 4 has their own character page. These can be accessed by clicking on the picture displaying the fighter on the front page. Each character page contains the characters' official render within a frame displaying their name, and ten additional photos. These pictures will be a mixture of Wii U and 3DS screenshots—there are typically more from the Wii U—and the Wii U pictures always precede the 3DS pictures. The background color of the page changes according to character. When applicable, these character pages will link to a recent or upcoming Nintendo game featuring the character. On special characters, such as newcomers and third-party fighters, there will often be a bonus video or piece of artwork alongside the main character render.
Unlike the site's predecessors, the Smash Bros. DOJO!! and Smabura-Ken, there is no additional text on the page regarding the character.
