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.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
