Nintendo Offers New Content for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U
During a special video presentation focused on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, the game’s director, Masahiro Sakurai, unveiled new content for the games, including two new playable characters: Ryu from the Street Fighter series and Roy from Fire Emblem.
They both join Lucas from Mother 3 as new playable fighters, and are available for download now.
This additional paid content lands alongside a major software update that launched Sunday for both systems, which also includes three new stages and many new costumes for Mii Fighters.
These include outfits from classic fighting series Virtua Fighter and Tekken. With these new characters, stages and costumes, top fighting game franchises Super Smash Bros., Street Fighter, Virtua Fighter and Tekken unite for the very first time, says Nintendo.
“Today’s update proves that the evergreen Super Smash Bros. games continue to evolve and grow with unexpected new content,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive VP of Sales & Marketing. “We’re offering multiple price options and bundles for all this outstanding new content, so players can mix and match whatever characters, stages and costumes they want.”
Offering interactive entertainment, Nintendo Co., Ltd., of Kyoto, Japan, manufactures and markets hardware and software for its Wii U and Wii home consoles, and Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS families of portable systems.
