Japan is getting an amazing Figma figure next year -- Lucina from Fire Emblem: Awakening. It's up for pre-order now from retailers like AmiAmi, and it'll drop in April 2015. I think I'm going to have the mask on permanently -- it looks too cool. Of course, this figure makes me lament the fact that Lucina doesn't have a mask-variant costume in Smash Bros.

Here's how you unlock everything in Smash Bros. Wii U

Just like Super Smash Bros. 3DS, the unlock conditions are fairly relaxed in the Wii U version. Of course there is at least one stage that's hidden behind a specific unlock condition, and most of the stage unlocks aren't apparent at first. Although this doesn't spoil any stage specifically, I'd refrain from reading the comments if you want to be surprised.
