During today's Nintendo Direct, we learned a lot of information about the future of the Smash Bros. roster.

Mewtwo will be coming April 28. The price will be $4.00 for each platform or $5 if you buy both 3DS and Wii U versions together.

Mewtwo will be released on April 28, Users who registered both a 3DS and Wii U version of Smash will still get their download for free.

No Caption Provided

In addition, Super Smash Bros. Update 1.06 will introduce a host of new options including new downloadable costumes for Mii Fighters, an updated photo mode, and more.

No Caption Provided

A sampling of the costumes you'll be able to access include:

  • Cat Suit
  • Link
  • X (from Mega Man X)
  • Monkey
  • Majora's Mask
  • Proto Man

Mii Fighter costumes will cost $0.75 for each costume either on 3DS or Wii U or $1.15 if you buy the 3DS and Wii U version simultaneously.

No Caption Provided

Despite an earlier statement that Mewtwo would be the only paid downloadable content for Super Smash Bros., Lucas from Mother 3 (and a previous Smash fighter) also made a surprise appearance. He'll be coming out as downloadable content sometime in June.

No Caption Provided

But that's not the end of DLC characters. Nintendo also announced a Smash Fighter Ballot site on the official Smash Bros. web portal where you can go to let Nintendo know exactly who you want to see in the game next.

Umm excuse me but people that registered both versions of the game through Club Nintendo will be getting Mewtwo on April 15th whilst those that didn't can purchase him as paid DLC on the 28th April

At least this was the information i seen on a Nintendo Facebook page so you might want to edit that part of the article.

Also of reasonable size.

Chrono from Chrono Trigger!

How awesome would it be to see Chrono and Frog perform X-Strike for the Final Smash?!

I would have to say I am most interested in Bayonetta, Zero, Sora, Eggman, Snake, Scrooge McDuck, Ai Ai (from Monkey Ball), and Ace Attorney.

So Nintendo is just going to take money any way possible from now on? There new business model is similar to those social companies that end up going bankrupt.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> "Expanding" into mobile, free-to-play models, charging for extra content, restricting themselves as much as possible unless you pay them. It's a level of greed that puts companies out.


I just see it that if you are that desperate for money then something financial must be wrong. What's next? GameSpot can't post an article about Nintendo unless they give them 40 percent of their ad revenue? Even EA hasn't dared to go that far.

Last I checked mobile games are all the rage in Japan and Nintendo is popular in Japan. They even said if FF15 doesn't do well on consoles that could be the end for console gaming in Japan.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Like EA games and their Battlefield "addons" And lets not forget Call of Duty. Atleast these are reasonably priced, unlike 30-40 dollars for a new map.

He can't become playable, since he's already an Assist Trophy.

Regarding the downloadable content, in addition to more fighters, stages, Mii costumes, and a Tournament mode on the way, despite being cut, there may be a chance that a single-player campaign mode similar to the SSE may be involved in it in the future as well. Were you upset that it was axed out? Do you want it as downloadable content? Let me know by replying to this comment. Peace out!

I'm putting my vote down for Simon Belmont. Smash Bros. needs some Castlevania in the fray, it would be a perfect fit!

Why the F should I pay 5bucks for a damn Ness clone that was already part of the roster in the previous game? Honestly cant the people making SSB ever come up with new ideas? Half the roster of SSB U are recycled Brawl characters its like theyre not even trying to add new fresh characters to the roster...mewtwo and lucas..WT F? I wont pay $10 for these lame ass toons. The roster is in lack of Heavy-weight fighters, why not add King K. Rool ?????? With DK64 soon coming to VC dont tell me Rare owns K. Rool cause I wont believe a single F word of it. Hes been in 4 different games ,all where he appears in new costumes with different move-sets he would be EASY to create and yet would be one of the freshest addition to this game. DK is the only main franchise in SSB that never had one of its villain appear. Nintendo are asleep and way too busy selling their soul.

You never paid for him. What you paid for was in the disk or download you first got. People need to know this stuff already.. I mean yeah some companies pull that stunt off, but not nintendo.

He was highly requested, and since he's already got a complete moveset, he was easy enough to add that they were aparently able to just about do it as they were finishing Mewtwo. If it were, for example, Ridley then you could bet it would not have been ready by June like Lucas will.
