Later today will bring us the much awaited Mewtwo downloadable content for Super Smash Bros., at least for those that are getting the free code through Club Nintendo. However, Masahiro Sakurai has provided us with a brand new update for both versions of the game in preparation that bring some pretty interesting content to the Wii U version especially.

The 3DS version’s update is relatively small at only 1715 blocks and will provide the following:

  • Added a new functionality for purchasing DLC
    • Click here for more information.
  • Adjustments have also been made to balance the game and make for a more pleasant gaming experience.

The Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. is getting a much larger update, with perhaps the most exciting being even more 8-player stages, six to be exact.

  • Users will be able to purchase DLC from Nintendo eShop.
    • Click here for more information.
  • Share mode has been added:
    • Users will be able to post photos, replay data, Mii Fighter data, and Custom stage data to the official server to share with other users around the world. Users will also be able to search and download the content as well*Users can only post their own content. Content posted to the server will be deleted after 30 days.
  • Users will be able to post photos and Custom stages to Miiverse from within the game (Photos will be posted to the official Snapshot Sharing Community and Custom stages will be posted to the official Stage Sharing Community
  • Users can download data from the server to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U if there is an activation button in the images posted on Miiverse.
  • Users will be able to share and exchange photos, replay data, Mii Fighter data, and Custom stage data with users on their Nintendo 3DS Friend List.
    • Content will be received when the Nintendo 3DS is connected to the Internet
    • It may take some time to receive the data
    • Content uploaded to the server will be deleted from the server after 30 days.
  • Added 6 new 8-Player Stages
    • Omega Stages:
      • Delfino Plaza
      • Port Town Aero Dive
      • Woolly World
      • Orbital Gate Assault
      • Wii Fit Studio
      • Pilotwings
  • Adjustments have also been made to balance the game and make for a more pleasant gaming experience.

If you are getting the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U update, make sure you clear some space as it will take up 551 MB on your system. This seems to be missing the Miiverse stage that many were hoping for, so we’ll just have to keep waiting on that one.
