Both versions of the game will be released in 2014, and each will be available for download from the Nintendo eShop.

The 3DS version of the game showed a more cel-shaded style, whereas the Wii U version featured a style more reminiscent of Super Smash Bros. Brawl on the original Wii.

Nintendo did not mention if both games had to be purchased separately, or whether there would be connectivity between the two versions.

Capcom is bringing Mega Man to the series, and the Villager from Animal Crossing will also be included in the roster. Alongside the newcomers, Nintendo announced that Mario, Donkey Kong, Link, Samus, Kirby, Fox, Pikachu, Bowser, and Pit would be returning to the series.

Nintendo adds that the Miiverse community for Super Smash Bros. will be opened today.
