Super Smash Bros

Late last night (or about 4 pm Japan time) Nintendo made some announcements via it’s Japanese Super Smash Bros Twitter feed. The tweets indicate that an update for Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U is coming on July 31st that will bring Tournament mode, new replay posting features, as well as new costumes and stages. Thankfully our own Will Whitehurst went ahead and translated the posts regarding the new costumes and stages for us.

Super Smash Bros

Additional stages: The additional stages here are two remakes of stages from the original Super Smash Bros., which are Peach’s Castle and Hyrule Castle. The price for both stages is ¥250 including tax (one version – either 3DS or Wii U)/¥350 including tax (both versions). (Releases 7/31)

Super Smash Bros

Additional costume: Hoodie (body) This flashy hoodie has a Smash Bros. logo printed on it. There’s also a fire print design on the sleeves. The pants are a cool grey. Every type of Mii Fighter can wear this! (Releases 7/31)

Super Smash Bros

Additional costume: King K. Rool (Brawler) From Donkey Kong Country (called Super Donkey Kong in the original Japanese), a King K. Rool set appears. Protruding eyeballs sit atop a crown that sparkles gold. If you wear this, you can become the boss of the Kremling corps! (Releases 7/31)

Super Smash Bros

Additional costume: Chrom (Swordfighter) From Fire Emblem: Awakening, a Chrom set appears. A splendid revival from The Brand of the Exalt (which is called the “Stigmata” in the original Japanese), which embodies royalty. Carrying the divine Falchion sword in your hand, you can Smash with your ancestor Marth! (Releases 7/31)

While no confirmation of a release for this update outside of Japan has been announced it seems highly likely that it will making it’s way to the rest of the world. How do you all feel about it though? Are you content that Chrom and King K. Rool were made into costumes instead of playable fighters? Will you be picking up the stages from the original Super Smash Bros. and hope to relive some past glory with the new characters?. Be sure to let us know in the comments below and of course of Facebook and Twitter and thanks once again to Will for the translations.

    As much as I am going to love the stages I was really hoping that the 2 Mii costumes K.Rool and Chrom would be actual playable characters. There is still hope of them being playable character, but this sort of shoots them down a notch. The reason why I still have hope for them though is because they have done this in the past with Meta Knight and also now the Link Mii fighter costume.
