While playing Smash 4, I realized that I jump high when ever I want to jump (just by tapping the jump button, or moving the stick up for just a second). Is it even possible to Short Jump on the 3DS version?

I never really thought about it before now, so I plan on doing some testing (to see if I myself can or can not Short Jump) when I get back to my 3DS.

It is possible - it's just difficult. You have to tap the button (or stick) as quickly as you possibly can.

  • It'll be much easier using the button. Just tap it like it's on fire!

  • It's really the same in both versions. It just depends on what controller you use and which button you assign it to, whether it's easy to tap or not.
