Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is almost here later this week, but we already have the version for Nintendo 3DS to play in the meantime. For those that are planning on playing Super Smash Bros. for 3DS while waiting, there will be a little bit of a wait time as there is a brand new patch available for the game.
A version 1.04 update for Super Smash Bros. is now available to download via the eShop. The update is required in order to play the game online, and while Nintendo have not yet released patch notes, here’s the very brief gist of the changes:
Adjustments will be made to balance the game.
Other adjustments will be made to make for a more pleasant gaming experience.
Note that, once you install the update, you will no longer be able to play local multiplayer with users that don’t have the update installed. Additionally, any replay data that was saved prior to the update will no longer be playable.
