Earlier this week on Miiverse, Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai revealed another new game mode for the series’ 3DS installment called Target Blast.

As its name implies, Target Blast adds an explosive twist to the traditional Target Smash minigame. Players start in a stadium reminiscent of the one in the Home-run Contest and must launch a gigantic bomb at a cluster of targets. The more targets that are engulfed in the explosion, the higher you score is! Sakurai elaborates on the mode in his Miiverse posts:

“What’s up with this bomb? This looks like the stadium for the Home-run Contest, but there’s no bat. Once you touch the bomb, it begins to count down. Give it enough damage and launch it at the right time…then once the bomb’s countdown hits zero…!!

“…It goes BOOOOOM! Not only will the blast destroy targets, but it’ll also cause a chain reaction by using shattered walls and bomb blocks–all of which contributes to you getting a high score!! This is a new activity that combines the concepts of Target Smash and the Home-run Contest–it’s called Target Blast! Your final score is the total you rack up over two rounds. Of course, your Target Blast scores contribute to your Global Smash Power, too.”

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS launches in North America on October 3. The Wii U version will follow sometime in winter 2014.
