Super Smash Bros. On Wii U, 3DS Now Has Tournaments

Super Smash Bros for Wii U Review

Nintendo has released a new update for Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS, adding the long-awaited Tournament Mode and Youtube upload functionality to the game.

Tournaments function pretty much as you’d expect, pitting you against other players in a series of online matches. The new Youtube functionality, meanwhile, means that you’ll be able to upload replays of your matches simultaneously to Youtube and Miiverse – something that is sure to be a popular feature among more competitive gamers who like to brag about their wins.

Nintendo has also added support for a new wave of DLC, with a number of new outfits and a couple of stages added to the game. You’ll need to pay for these, though there is the option to buy the outfits in a bundle on their own, or together along with the two new stages. The new stages are likely to be a favorite among long-time series fans – both Hyrule Castle and Peach’s Castle appeared in the original Smash Bros. on Nintendo’s N64.

Here’s the full rundown of all the new DLC available:

  • Samus’s Armour Mii Outfit – $0.75 / £0.69 single, $1.15 / £1.09 for both
  • Lloyd Set Mii Outfit – $0.75 / £0.69 single, $1.15 / £1.09 for both
  • Black Knight Mii Outfit – $0.75 / £0.69 single, $1.15 / £1.09 for both
  • Chrom Mii Outfit – $0.75 / £0.69 single, $1.15 / £1.09 for both

  • Peach’s Castle (64) Stage – $1.99 / £1.79 single, $2.99 / £2.69 for both
  • Mii Fighter Costume Bundle – $6 / £5.52 single, $9.20 / £8.72 for both

Nintendo has previously promised that it will release more fighters for the game later this year, though we don’t know exactly when that will be just yet. The new fighters, who haven’t yet been revealed, have been chosen based on fan demand.

Ewan Moore reviewed the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. for Continue Play last year, awarding Nintendo’s chaotic brawler our highest accolade: a rare 10/10 score.

Super Smash Bros for Wii U is a fighting game tailor made for you. And you, and you over there at the back, and pretty much everyone with two thumbs and a passing interest in Nintendo,” Ewan wrote in his Super Smash Bros. for Wii U review. “Sakurai and his team have made the most accessible, well packaged, and lovingly designed brawler I have ever seen.”
