We hope everyone had a smooth transition into the new year! 2016 will be a big year for MG, since we know you’re all eagerly awaiting SSF2 Beta. Likewise, we’re just as eager to get it out to the masses! To prove that we’re still alive and kicking, here’s a rough outline for our plans in 2016:
SSF2 Beta Is Coming!
We’re officially confirming that this is the year SSF2 Beta is coming! So you can rest-assured that you won’t have to go another long year without an SSF2 release. And this isn’t just any release – it will be the most comprehensive build of the game since its inception! We’ll soon be rolling out plenty of preview material to get you hyped for the coming of Beta.
10th Anniversary of the Original Super Smash Flash
On August 21st this year, it will have been an entire decade since the release of the original Super Smash Flash on Newgrounds!
Nostalgic right? We’ll have to do something special to commemorate such an occasion, so remember the date!
Dev Blogs are Returning!
Do you remember the Dev Blogs? Well, they’re coming back!
For those of you who don’t remember (or missed it entirely), the Dev Blogs were a series of blog posts and videos showcasing a behind-the-scenes look at the development of SSF2. You’ll get to learn all kinds of tidbits of information about the game that you can’t get anywhere else, so definitely be on the lookout for their return!
SSF2 Is Returning to Super Smash Con!
For its second year, SSF2 will be hosting a booth at Super Smash Con 2016! It’ll be taking place August 11-14th in Chantilly, Virginia. I’m sure many of you have questions about the details of “what” we’ll showcase this year, but details will come in time. So please be patient for a bit longer and be sure to mark those calendars!

Not Returning to Apex 2016
It was a tough decision, but after 3 straight years of attendance SSF2 will not be hosting a booth at the Apex Smash tourney this year. Each member of the SSF2 dev team has their own separate lives outside of SSF2 to attend to, so we decided against making a commitment towards a second big event. But we do hope that some of you can make it out to Super Smash Con instead if you have the means to do so!
MGN services have been restored sooner than expected, enjoy!
Unfortunately MGN services will be down for the next 24 hours or so due to technical issues with the one of the servers. As such, during this time SSF2’s online mode will not be accessible while we work on re-configuring. We’ll be working hard to get it back online as soon as possible. Swing by tomorrow for follow-up information.
Maintenance has been completed and MGN services are fully restored, so there should be no more interruptions. Have fun!
MGN will be going offline temporarily for brief maintenance on Thursday, October 8th, at approximately 9:00PM EST.
Expected down time is estimated at about 20-30 minutes. During this time you will not be able to access Online mode in SSF2. A follow up announcement will be made after the work has been completed.
