Between numerous free updates for Splatoon, and the continued support of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, Nintendo is doing very well in terms of free gaming downloadable content as of late. And for the latter, a new update is coming soon for Super Smash Bros., which will feature much new content.
The update will arrive in Japan on the 31st. However, there is no word as of yet about when the update will make its way stateside, but we’ll keep you informed. Key among the content for the update is the arrival of two classic stages from the N64 original Super Smash Bros.: Peach’s Castle 64 and Hyrule Castle will return in all their glory. Both stages will have a graphical update or two to show off the system’s power.
Also, there will be new costumes for the Mii’s to wear in Super Smash Bros., chief among them is a King K. Rool outfit from the Donkey Kong franchise and a Chrom outfit from Fire Emblem Awakening.
For Japan (and most likely the other regions), they’ll also get a new tournament mode, which was revealed at the E3 special event in June. Hopefully, Nintendo will reveal more info on that as the update gets closer.
Finally, a fan desire will be delivered as you’ll be able to instantly upload replay videos from your game to YouTube via this new update. The costumes and stages will be paid DLC, and the rest will come free with the update.
Details on the US release date for the update will be revealed later on.
