Tomorrow marks the long awaited release of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and it contains one of the most frantic, borderline insane modes we've ever seen, 8-Player Smash. It's exactly as it sounds. Up to eight players cram their favorite Nintendo characters onto a handful of maps to determine the ultimate winner. It's chaotic, difficult to keep track of and very entertaining, even with seven computer-controlled brawlers. 

With that in mind, we jumped on the couch and filmed one of these insane contests. Watch and prepare to smash!
