Super Smash Bros. gets some DLC and a patch this month.
Super Smash Bros. was one of the headlines of today’s Nintendo Direct.
The long awaited Mewtwo DLC will release on 3DS and Wii U on April 28 for $4 for one version or $5 for both platforms. If you already own both versions of the fighter, you’ll get the add-on for free on April 15.
Nintendo said more DLC is coming, in contrast to earlier statements on the matter from creator Masahiro Sakurai. A playable Lucas is coming in June, and loads of new outfits, some inspired by other games, are on the way. These include Smash Bros. T-Shirt, Dunban Outfit, Cat Suit, Monkey Suit, Link Outfit, Majora’s Mask, X’s Armor and Proto Man Armor.
Nintendo has opened a poll on its Super Smash Bros. website to see which new fighters players want to see, suggesting we may get even more DLC.
The fighter will also be patched to 1.0.6 to coincide with the DLC. It will prepare the game for the DLC as well as rebalance some characters. It will also add sharing capacities to the Wii U version, including Photos, Mii Fighters, Replays and Custom Stages.
Finally, Nintendo gave some details of its upcoming Amiibo.
On May 29, Charizard, PAC-MAN, Wario, Jigglypuff, Greninja, Robin, Lucina and Ness will be available in the Super Smash Bros. series.
Dark Pit and Palutena are coming in July, with Olimar and Pikmin, Zero Suit Samus, Bowser Jr., Ganondorf and Dr. Mario in September. Mewtwo and Lucas are coming, but have not been dated.
