3DS Nintendo

Here’s Everything That Was Announced At Today’s Smash Bros Nintendo Direct

During a special video presentation focused on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, the game’s director, Masahiro Sakurai, unveiled a smashing amount of new content for the games, including two new playable characters: Ryu from the Street Fighter series and Roy from Fire Emblem. They both join Lucas from Mother 3 as new playable fighters, and are available for download now! This additional paid content lands alongside a major software update that launched today for both systems, which also includes three new stages and many new costumes for Mii Fighters, including outfits from classic fighting series Virtua Fighter and Tekken. With these new characters, stages and costumes, top fighting game franchises Super Smash Bros., Street Fighter, Virtua Fighter and Tekken unite for the very first time.

Three new characters join Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U: Ryu from the Street Fighter series, Roy from Fire Emblem and Lucas from Mother 3.

“Today’s update proves that the evergreen Super Smash Bros. games continue to evolve and grow with unexpected new content,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “We’re offering multiple price options and bundles for all this outstanding new content, so players can mix and match whatever characters, stages and costumes they want.”

The video presentation can be viewed in its entirety by visiting http://e3.nintendo.com/. Highlights of the update include:

  • Ryu from Street Fighter: For the first time inSuper Smash Bros. history, a character from the fighting game series Street Fighter joins the battle. Iconic character Ryu, whose look in the game is based on Street Fighter II, brings a new fighting style and feel to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. Ryu’s traditional Light, Medium and Heavy attacks can be used depending on whether players tap, press or hold the buttons. Classic Street Fighter moves like Hadoken and Shoryuken can be activated with just a one-button press, but players who enter the original button combinations from the Street Fighter series will perform the same actions with higher damage. Ryu can be purchased in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U or Nintendo 3DS for $5.99 each, or both game versions together for $6.99. Purchase includes the bonus Suzaku Castle stage from the Street Fighter series. This classic environment provides stable footing on the right side and a series of platforms on the left. It can also be played in Omega form, giving the stage a look and feel much like in the Street Fighter II original.
  • Roy from Fire Emblem: A fan-favorite from his last appearance in Super Smash Bros. Melee for Nintendo GameCube, Roy from the Fire Emblem franchise returns to the series more powerful than ever before. Unlike Marth, Roy’s sword is stronger closer to the hilt, so he works better in close range. Roy also now has a Final Smash move in the form of a devastating sword blow. Roy can be purchased in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U for $3.99, or both game versions together for $4.99.
  • Lucas from Mother 3: As previously announced, Lucas is also available to purchase as a new downloadable character. Originating in the Japan-only Game Boy Advance RPG Mother 3, Lucas primarily uses lightning attacks to smash his opponents. Lucas can be purchased in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U or Nintendo 3DS for $3.99, or both game versions together for $4.99.
  • New Mii Fighter costumes: Multiple video games and characters from the past and present are represented in a new set of Mii Fighter costumes now available through the new update. Two costumes from classic fighting game Virtua Fighter are based on the Akira and Jacky characters, with Akira even maintaining his blocky polygonal look from the original game. Tekken fighter Heihachi (and his amazing hair) serves as inspiration for one costume, with additional costumes based on Isabelle from Animal Crossing, MegaMan.EXE from Mega Man Battle Network, ZERO from Mega Man X, the Inkling Girl and Boy and the squid hat from Splatoonalso available. All costumes – eight in total – can be purchased in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U for $6, or both game versions together for $9.20. Costumes can also be purchased individually for $0.75 in either Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, or both game versions together for $1.15 each.
  • Dreamland stage: Based on the first Dreamland stage from the original Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 64, this stage returns with a few tweaks. The Dreamland stage can be purchased in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U for $1.99, or both game versions together for $2.99.
  • Everything: Players who want every fighter, stage, outfit and accessory featured among today’s DLC releases can buy them all at once. The whole DLC pack can be purchased in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U for $21.96, or both game versions together for $29.16.
  • Miiverse stage: Available now to download for free, this new stage for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U features Miiverse posts created by players all over the world. During matches while connected to the Internet, players will see Miiverse posts appear that cheer specific fighters on from the background. These messages will be pulled from individual Miiverse communities that just opened for each Super Smash Bros. character.
  • Tourney mode: Scheduled to launch as part of a free update in August, two new Tourney modes are coming to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Community Tourneys let players compete for the highest points in a certain amount of time, while regular Tourneys have a specific set of rules and only happen at select times.
  • YouTube replays: Coming exclusively to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U at a later date, this free new feature allows players to post replay videos of their matches on YouTube. To use this feature, players must possess a Google account. Please visit http://www.smashbros.com/us/ for additional details.
  • Additional Super Smash Bros. amiibo: Mii Fighters are getting their own amiibo figures! When used in the game, the Mii Brawler, Mii Swordfighter and Mii Gunner amiibo characters can be configured with custom faces and players’ collected accessories and costumes. Four additional Super Smash Bros. characters are also getting amiibo: R.O.B., Duck Hunt, Mr. Game & Watch and Falco. These new amiibo will be available this September, except Falco who will be available this holiday season. Eventually, all playable characters in Super Smash Bros. will have corresponding amiibo figures, including Mewtwo, Lucas, Roy and Ryu.
  • Bonus Trophies: After downloading the update, in-game bonus trophies based on Ryu and Ken from Street Fighter, Roy, Lucas and Splatoon will be available to unlock in play. Players can collect these trophies by completing All-Star mode in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U.

      1. eShop is like one giant crappy game with it’s own glitchy ass level design:
        Level 1: Access the eshop without errors.
        LVL 2: Access the Smash Bros Page without errors.
        LVL 3: Access the SmashDLC Page without errors.
        LVL 4: Access and pass all the DLC Info/Purchase Pages without errors.
        LVL 5: Access and pass the AddFunds Pages without errors.
        LVL 6: Access and pass all the PaymentConfirmation Pages without errors.
        LVL 7: Beat the Final Boss named: “Processing”
        Bonus LEVEL: Download the data without errors.

        You have about -less than- 20% chance of passing everything. Failure to pass any of the levels will result in restarting the entire process.

      2. The final boss is different for both games. On the Wii U version, it’s downloading the update. On the 3DS version it’s accessing the DLC shop in Smash 3DS (which is still crashing every two seconds).

  1. Man I wish there was a patch to play using the D-pad now. It’s going to be extremely hard to pull off a dragon punch using the control stick! XD

    I wonder if people will use fight sticks when playing as Ryu now lol!

      1. At least the costumes aren’t necessary for most people, and they’re really the most expensive part of the DLC when bought together. I only care about the characters for both versions ($17 together…) and the Dreamland stage for the Wii U versions ($2)… In hindsight, this DLC is actually pretty overpriced compared to the Kart DLC. $5 felt okay when it was just one character, but now it’s really feeling like all of the DLC is gonna add up to $60+ by the end of this game’s life cycle.

  3. Wow… Ryu is much more indepth than I thought he would be. I have a feeling he is going to be top tier for sure. Good SMash players are going to learn all his combos and rip opponents apart.

    I’m glad they changed Roy’s up-special. Makes me want to play as him even though I’m not super excited he’s in the game.

    Time to download all the characters. I hope I can get online to the eShop.

    1. Yeah but we are forced to invest in future tittles not coming to Wii U though. All our money is going to is for PS4 tittles. When is Capcom making a Wii u tittle with our money that Smash is paying for Mega MAn and Ryu?

  7. Several months before the first amiibos released, I read (on this site I believe) that Nintendo was going to allow gamers to have a custom (physical) amiibo made of their own personal Mii’s. (how? I’m not sure?). But I have yet to hear a single word about this. I was SO excited when I first read this. Now I’m beginning to think it was just a stupid rumor.

  8. So now Capcom gets more money for a new character, a new amiibo and a new stage 2x for both Wii U and 3DS and yet no new Street Fighter, no Resident Evil to support the Wii U. People are going to be investing in this for upcoming Xbox and PS4 tittles.

  9. Since Ryu is so hardcore, Nintendo needs to advertise this on TV on NBA playoffs. But Nintendo is stupid with no common sense on boosting Wii U sells.

  10. When it comes to dlc in games I usually evaluate how much content is given for the price. SSB Wii U and 3ds imo felt like a complete game now getting dlc which is fine. I realize characters are expensive to make, but I am going to skip the dlc due to it being overpriced imo. Their are so many great psn and nintendo virtual console games I could buy for less than 20$. Having the option of DLC is good though for those who are interested in getting it sort of like amiibo.

  11. What is with Nintendo? Replays on YouTube? Really Nintendo? This is a “feature”? FFS Nintendo, people are uploading entire matches with commentary on YouTube, why the fuck would someone want to download a replay? It was dumb with Mario Kart, and it’s even more dumb now…

    Stop dipping your toes in the water Nintendo, and just dive in for fucks sake! Nobody wants to upload a goddamn instant replay to youtube via your limitations and restrictions! Especially when everyone is already uploading entire matches with commentary…

  13. E3 barely just started yet this DLC and the release of Mother is making a ton of money for Nintendo. Now that’s good marketing. Show and release a complete DLC and game at the very time of the year when everyone is excited to see what’s new for the video game industry.

  14. After I gave Mortal Kombat X shit for the price of it’s DLC. *facepalm* I knew I should have kept my mouth shut! lol Hollow, I give you permission to laugh at me now. Sakurai, if what a guy above me said is true, you should really reprice the fucking bundle because apparently there is no saving of money to be had for getting the bundles. Ugh! I want the DLC but 30 fucking bucks for both Wii U & 3DS!? Nintendo Fusion might not be such a bad idea after all. :/
