New update and DLC out for Super Smash Bros., preview it here

Smash Bros. Wii U tournament!

The new update for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS is out in the wild now, bringing with it new stages, Mii costumes, tournament mode, and balance changes.

Included for free in the update is a K. K. Slider costume for the Mii Gunner, which is probably the best Mii outfit yet — instead of having a gun, you’re carrying Slider’s guitar!

Each new piece of premium content is available to purchase separately for various prices or all together in a bundle that runs $9.98 per system or $15.18 for both. The bundle includes:


  • Peach’s Castle (64)
  • Hyrule Castle (64) 

The stages include their music and a few extra tracks as well. 

Mii Outfits:

  • Bear (Gunner)
  • King K. Rool (Brawler)
  • Flying Man (Brawler)
  • Chrom (Swordfighter)
  • Black Knight (Swordfighter)
  • Lloyd (Swordfighter)
  • Samus (Gunner)
  • Hoodie w/ Smash Bros. logo (All)

Also, I’m proud to announce an impromptu Super Smash Bros. Destructoid tournament for Wii U! The tournament is now live and joinable by searching for “” and is open up to 100 participants. You have until Sunday at 8:00pm ET to fight your way to the top, then I’ll reveal the results on the site and give you a shoutout. Huzzah! 

One last thing…
