Storybook Royale is a fairly minor game mode in Super Smash Bros. Battle Royale. Here, you can do a variety of things, although none of them really have to do with fighting.
This mode allows you to view the storybook for Battle Royale. The storybook has four general uses:
- 1) You can read "short stories" for Battle Royale's Single Royale modes. The Battle Arena, Arcade Mode and Event Matches are all you can get, however.
- 2) You can create your own Battle Royale stories! Using stickers, background photos, and dialogue you make yourself, you can go crazy! You can even submit your stories online!
- 3) You can read up on character backstories; spoilers are present, though.
There isn't much, and it's really more of a "just for fun" mode. Still, it can prove for some fun.
Accessing Storybook Royale
Yes, there's actually a method that needs to be used to get to Storybook Royale. After buying it at Shop Royale, it won't be available on the Main Menu. What you need to do is go to Single Royale, go to the Smashers Domain in The Battle Arena and select the Storybook. When you beat the Battle Arena, it becomes available on the Main Menu.
The Battle Arena
In the Arcade/Classic Mode section of the Storybook, you can see hand-drawn images of several characters' intro's and endings. For some characters, they are drawn by specific characters: For Kirby and King Dedede, they are drawn by Adeliene. For Bowser, they are (poorly) drawn by a Goomba. The description/dialogue is purely written and never spoken.
You can also read up on each characters' story for Arcade/Classic Mode. They aren't hand-drawn, although the clips shown are ripped straight from the characters' playthrough.
Custom Made Stories
- Storybook Royale wasn't originally intended to be in Battle Royale. After all, it's extremely unfitting for a fighting game and was at first intended to be a minor aspect of The Battle Arena. Soon, ideas grew, and creator Kirbyfan66 decided to make it an entire game mode.
