This is the first week Mewtwo is available for Club Nintendo aristocrats. Even if you're in it for Mewtwo, either playing as him or against him, this week also saw some major updates to both Smash Bros. versions.
The Wii U version saw the arrival of the sharing functionality the 3DS held for a few months exclusively. If you've joined our group, maybe you can exchange replays with other members! Even with no friends, you can browse globallly uploaded replays.
The 3DS meanwhile saw the introduction of a store and DLC menu. While the Wii U redirects to the eShop, the 3DS version saw fit to have its own contained store page.
Both versions also got Mii Fighter costume DLC (X and Protoman) and a mysterious patch along with the data necessary to fight against Mewtwo for people who won't get him but will still play online. WHO GOT NERFED!?
New to Friday Night Fights? It's easy to get involved!
Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It's a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!
The planning for FNF starts in the forums, where community members volunteer to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, ect.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up here in the c-blogs followed by a recap post on the front page for last minute planning.
Sign up for Nintendoid too if you want in on all the talk and get over Nintendo's lack of lobbies.
To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! (Don't forget to say you're from Dtoid!) If you'd rather host something yourself, just post your details below in the following format:
Wii U or 3DS
Host: Dtoid Username
NID: Wii U Nintendo ID or 3DS friend code
Time: Time in EST
[insert extra social media here]

Time: 2pm PST, 11pm PST
