The series director of Super Smash Bros for Wii U has teased two new single-player modes that are likely to appear in the upcoming title.

Masahiro Sakurai published an image on Nintendo's own social network, Miiverse, showing what appears to be two new challenges involving the series' famous Master Hand boss. That image can be found above.

"Now, what mode is this...?!" Sakurai wrote when publishing the Miiverse post. Some text from the image is blurred out, though the opening word for each mode remains visible. One starts with "Master", while the other begins with "Crazy", and both depict the Master Hand and a mass of coins.

The top-left corner of the screen shows the menu path, which indicates these two new modes are single-player.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will ship across Europe on Friday November 28, Nintendo has confirmed. Meanwhile, in the US the game will ship two weeks earlier, on November 21.

Two additional bundles have also been lined up by Nintendo UK, one of which features an Amiibo figure, an NFC-powered plastic toy that can interact with certain Nintendo games. The other bundle comes with a GameCube Controller Adapter, allowing the classic control pad to be used with the Wii U.

Also available from December 5 is a standalone black Nintendo GameCube Controller, as well as a standalone GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U.

Nintendo revealed its launch plans while disclosing that the handheld version, Super Smash Bros for 3DS, has now sold 2.8 million copies worldwide since its release.
