Snapshots, also named Screenshots, are images that can be taken via the screenshot feature in nearly every Super Smash Bros. game, starting with Super Smash Bros. Melee. In all subsequent appearances, snapshots can be taken from the pause menu.
Super Smash Bros. Melee
In Super Smash Bros. Melee, snapshots can only be taken in Camera Melee mode. By connecting a controller in port 4 of the Nintendo GameCube, the player can use an in-game camera to take photographs of various gameplay moments. The snapshots would save to the GameCube's Memory Card, and can be viewed from the Data menu option.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, snapshots can be taken from the pause menu in any mode except for Stadium and Nintendo WFC modes. Snapshots can be taken using the Replay feature, even for modes that do not have snapshot functionality. Whenever the player takes a snapshot, they can save it either directly to the Wii or to an SD card if one has been inserted into the console. The number of snapshots that can be taken depends on how many blocks are available in either storage location.
The player can view their snapshots from the Album; by default, the Album already has one snapshot, and it shows Zero Suit Samus using her Plasma Whip on Wario in the Delfino Plaza stage. Before Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection was discontinued, players could send their snapshots to other people in their friends list.
On October 12, 2007, an update was posted on Smash Bros. DOJO!! to demonstrate how to take snapshots.
Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U
In both Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the most notable difference with snapshots is that they are not encrypted, as they are saved in the jpg file format. In the Nintendo 3DS version, snapshots can be saved internally or to the SD card. The player can even take screenshots if 3D Mode is on, causing the files to be saved in the mpo file format. In the Wii U version, the player can only save snapshots to an SD card.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, like all other Nintendo Switch games, users can take screenshots using the console's screenshot button. There is still the option to take screenshots in the pause menu. Because the Nintendo Switch already has an album for various game captures, the game itself does not have an Album.
