Super Smash Bros. Update is Now LIVE!!

Over night Nintendo released a new update for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS. Fans can now access several key features that were otherwise unavailable until now.

As of September 29, 2015, new update data for the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U game has been made available for download. Users will be required to download this update prior to using the software’s online multiplayer features. Because of this, we strongly recommend that all Super Smash Bros. for Wii U players download and install this update data.

Players will obviously have access to several new content once they have updated the game, so be sure to do so immediately.

In addition to the new stages, there were also a few other things made available to players, as well. According to NeoGAF user, Regulus Tera, these additions are noted below:

EDIT: New Mii Fighters Costumes:

Business Suit
Fox Set (Starfox) (Ginner)
Captain Falcon’s Outfit (brawler)
Toad (Brawler)
Viridi Set – Kid ICarus (Sword Fighter)
Hunter Set – Monster Hunter (Sword Fighter)
Rathalos Set – Monster Hunter (Sword Fighter)

edit2: The Duck Hunt stage from the Wii U version has also been added to the 3DS version for FREE

I hope these updates are as wonderful as they appear to be and continue to bring even more value to this game and the Wii U (and 3DS) for many months (and years) to come. The evergreen nature of Nintendo hardware/software is legendary, and this type of activity only goes to strengthen that image.

Do you think these additions are worth your attention, time and resources? How much time do you still invest in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U? For 3DS? Will this bring you back to the game, if not?

As always, gaming is meant to be fun, so keep gaming!!
