Speed Slice mode is one of my favorite multi-player modes of this game. In speed slice you will get to slice through all kinds of random objects such as logs, timers, cupcakes, bamboo, oranges, etc. The point of the game is to slice through the object in the direction the arrow points the fastest. A judge will throw up an object at varied speeds and whoever slices through the object in the correct direction first wins a point. The first to 10 points wins the match. This is a great one for family and friends you will spend hours competing against each other to see nike juvenate who has the fastest reactions. Also its fun just slicing something up.
Showdown mode is probably my favorite single player mode in this game. Take your dual skills and apply them to battle the masses. Here you will have fight against an army of guys to beat each of the levels. While there is a mob of Mii's you are battling only one Mii can attack you at a time. It can take up to 3 hits to kill a Mii. A Mii's hearts determine the number of times you must hit them to knock them out. In the early rounds you can just mow through them and go nuts without any regard to blocking. Later on they get smart and start blocking and you must imply your sword skill strategies to defeat the army of Mii's. This is a great addition to the Sword Play mode and I've spent countless hours of fun beating these levels.
