Super Smash Bros has been available for the Wii U since last winter, but Nintendo has not stopped updating the game since then. The next big addition is a free update that includes tournament mode which is a long requested mode that was announced well before the game was announced.
Tournament mode is an online mode that allows players to participate in tournaments created by other players online and allows Nintendo to create official tournaments and run events akin to the Splatfests in Splatoon.
I’ll admit that I am a little disappointed because Tournament mode had traditionally been an online only mode and I was hoping that they would specifically announce more tools to let players set up tournaments locally. I’ll have to take what we can get though as this does give players another chance to test their skills.
This update will also include the ability to upload gameplay videos directly to YouTube which is a pretty interesting change that I expect will be used a lot.
They also quietly announced a third wave of skins for the Mii Fighter. Take a look at the video below to see if your favorite is available. $0.75 is not a lot of spend if it is available.
