Super Smash Bros. Wii U Gets Surprise DLC

Nintendo has released two brand new stages for Super Smash Bros on the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, along with five new Mii suits for player-created characters. The DLC for the game is available right now as a sort of surprise from Nintendo for the fans.

Eurogamer rolled through the pricing quickly, as each of the DLC packs that launched today are under $5 and bring a ton of new content to the table. The one stage that really stands out in this pack is the Super Mario Maker stage for Super Smash Bros. The level depicts a hand that randomly generates a level at the start of each match and it will even fix the level while you play. Check out the promo video below.

The Super Mario Maker stage for Super Smash Bros is available individually for $2.49 but you can get it in a bundle for both the Wii U and 3DS version of the game for $3.49. The Pirate stage from Super Smash Bros. Brawl is available for only $1.99. It looks very much the same as it did on the Wii.

The Super Mario Maker stage should prove to be a really fun title for multiple players because it's going to be different and unique every single time it's played. That's adding a lot of versatility to the game right there. While the video above focused on the Super Mario Maker level the video below from Nintendo Life focuses on The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker's pirate boat. You can check it out below.

But that's not all.

Nintendo also released a pack of Mii costumes for custom fighters. You'll now be able to outfit your Mii with costumes mimicking Captain Falcon, a Business Suit (presumably to honor former Nintendo president Satoru Iwata), a Toad outfit, a Viridi outfit, and a couple of Monster Hunter outfits from Capcom's popular series. There's also a Fox McCLoud outfit for those who really want to channel their inner Mango. You can see the promotional video for the new outfits below.

All of the new DLC is available right now. The Mii outfits are available for both the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U each for under a $1. However, you can get the outfits individually for $1.15 and it will be available for both the 3DS and Wii U version of Super Smash Bros.

Nintendo had mentioned earlier in the year that they would continue to support the game throughout 2015 and all the way into early 2016, and they've held true to that promise. They plan on ceasing support by March, 2016. So gamers still have content to look forward to for the game up until they start focusing more on the Nintendo NX and the new slate of titles they have planned for their platforms.
