Super Smash Bros. Wii U-3ds

Whenever Nintendo releases a new update for Super Smash Bros., some tech savvy fans dig into it and do some data mining. This is no different with the game’s new 1.1.1 patch. While digging through the data in the patch looking for hidden secrets, these fans have uncovered some interesting bits of information. While they didn’t find any really big hidden secrets, they did find a few things hiding in the updated game files.

In the character table, three new character slots have been added. The screenshot below shows the data in question. You will notice three entries in the table that are all named “aFig_50_Mario” in the center column. These are the three new empty character slots (or placeholders for potential new characters). What three characters might end up filling them remains to be seen. Also note that before this update, there were only two empty character slots in this table.

On the stages side of things, the fans drilling into the update found six empty stage slots in the stage table. Of course, these are split between Omega and standard versions of stages. It should be noted that two of these are probably for the Pirate Ship stage given their placement beside the Mario Maker stage.  The image below shows the data. You will notice there are six entries named “aTikiBuzz_0”. These are the empty stage slots that are placeholders for potential new stages. The first two appear right after the Mario Maker stage, and the remaining four are a few lines farther down.

So what do these findings mean for the future of Super Smash Bros.? It could be an indication that the game will receive another round of DLC in the future. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see what Nintendo does. There are still a huge number of things Nintendo could choose to add to the game in terms of both stages and fighters. Smash fans will just have to wait patiently to see what the future of Super Smash Bros. will bring.
