Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is (technically) the fifth installment in Nintendo's best-selling series of fighting games. The game features a plethora of awesome new features!

And Smash Tour.

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Similarly to Brawl and Melee, Mr. Game and Watch is modeled in 3D, then flattened as part of the "2D characters" code used in the Game and Watch level. Take some pictures of Mr. Game and Watch and his items in 3D.
  • Palutena has unused underdress textures.

Unused Animations

Hmmm...
To do:
Upload GIF's of the animations themselves on the page.

Petey Piranha

Curiously, an unused set of animations pertaining to Mario series regular Petey Piranha exist in the files, despite Petey making no appearance whatsoever in either the 3DS or Wii U versions. The files are present in "bosspackun", found within the "enemy" subfolder inside of the "motion" directory, which includes the animation files for bosses and Smash Tour hazards such as Koffing and Souflee.

Included within the "main.pac" file are a series of animations which are completely different to those used in the Petey Piranha boss fight in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. This would appear to imply that Petey was intended to be used as a stage boss, similarly to Ridley, The Yellow Devil, Nabbit and Metal Face. This theory is further supported by these files not being included in the 3DS version in any capacity, in addition to all of Petey's animations being prefaced with "EnmBosspackun", "Enm" also being used for the stage bosses mentioned above.

Even more curiously, there are no leftover models, textures, sounds or parameters with which these animations would correspond to, as only the animations appear to remain in the game. Because of this, the only way to view the animations is to impose them over a pre-existing model. The lack of leftover assets would appear to imply that Petey Piranha was scrapped at a very early stage in development.

The list of animations are as seen below:

EnmBosspackunBodyMainBreath
EnmBosspackunBodyMainBreathFinish
EnmBosspackunBodyMainBreathHold
EnmBosspackunBodyMainBreathStart
EnmBosspackunBodyMainDamageAir
EnmBosspackunBodyMainDeath

EnmBosspackunBodyMainSpinStartAir
EnmBosspackunBodyMainTurn
EnmBosspackunBodyMainTurnAir

Additionally, a set of strings related to Petey can be found in the game's executable. These strings also appear in the 3DS version's executable but in a different, non-sequential order.

Fighters

Hmmm...
To do:
Upload the GIFs!

Gliding Remnants

Pit, Dark Pit, & Meta Knight all have several unused animations pertaining to gliding, a feature which was removed from the previous game. These include startup, gliding, attacking, landing, direction guiding and wing animations. Charizard, the only other character capable of gliding in Brawl, does not have any of these leftover animations.

Rosalina

An unused down smash animation for Rosalina, titled AttackLw42. The down smash animation used in-game, which this animation occurs immediately after, is titled AttackLw4.

Roy

Titled Attack12, this animation is clearly a 2nd neutral attack for Roy, who unlike Marth & Lucina, does not have any consecutive neutral combos. The animation is identical to Marth's, and was likely ported over from Marth's animation directory.

King Dedede

FinalSwingMiss and FinalAirSwingMiss, which as the name implies, shows Dedede missing wildly with a hammer strike during Dedede Burst, his Final Smash. Even if the hammer swings miss, Dedede continues the animation as if they have landed, rendering this animation unseen.

Giga Mac

The animations for Little Mac's KO Punch (SpecialN2 and SpecialAirN2) were ported over to Giga Mac's animation archive, despite Giga Mac being unable to use the KO Punch, as the Power Meter disappears upon activating Little Mac's Final Smash.

Diddy Kong

2 unused animations of Diddy Kong mischievously laughing, titled SpecialLwLaugh and SpecialAirLwLaugh respectably, which were also unused in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The names indicate that they were related to Banana Toss, and likely would've been used when an opponent trips over one of Diddy's bananas.

Zero Suit Samus

Although her character model has no unused animations, the animation for Zero Suit Samus' old forward smash from Brawl can still be found in the animation archive for her plasma whip, titled AttackS4S.

Wario

A landing lag animation exists for the fully charged Wario Waft, with the name SpecialLwLandingFlyR. However, the Wario Waft almost instantly transitions into the normal falling animation upon use, and propels Wario too high for any landing lag to ever occur.

Olimar/Alph's Pikmin

All 5 different colours of Pikmin have leftover animations from Olimar's Brawl up-B special move Pikmin Chain, one where they connect with the ledge (SpHiCliffConnect), and an idle animation of them clinging onto it (SpHiCliffWait). As Pikmin Chain was replaced by Winged Pikmin, and Pikmin briefly disappear when Olimar or Alph reach a ledge, neither of these animations ever come into play.

Smash Run Enemies

Many of the enemies from Smash Run in the 3DS version have all of their animations still present in the same "motion" > "enemy" folder the Petey Piranha animations listed above are present in, despite either being repurposed for Smash Tour or not being in the Wii U version at all. Because of this, Smash Tour obstacles such as the Reaper, Koffing, Souflee, TAC, the Iridescent Glint Beetle and others all have leftover animations used in Smash Run which aren't used in the game at all.

Unused Music

Game Over

Z51_J_GameOver

This song isn't used anywhere in the game. It would make sense for it to play when you choose to quit after losing in Classic mode, but it doesn't.

Unused Sounds

Character Voices

Keep in mind that with the exception of the "strong knockback", not including Ganon's, Captain Falcon's, and Jigglypuff's files, and one of Meta Knight's voice clips, all of the unused files for characters reusing voices from Brawl are also unused here.

Kirby

kirby_copy_Palutena_01 ("Heavenly Light!")
kirby_copy_Palutena_02 ("Explosive Flame!")

In the final game, Kirby can only copy default neutral specials even if the character he swallows has a custom one equipped, meaning he can only acquire Palutena's Autoreticle. As a result, these adorable announcements of Heavenly Light and Explosive Flame go unused. There are two potential explanations for this: either Kirby was originally capable of copying custom specials, or it was not decided which of Palutena's specials would be the default until after the voice work was done.

Marth

Marth_002-004

Three clips of Marth which played whenever he successfully countered an attack in previous installments. Marth uses one of his generic yells when countering in this game, rendering these unique lines unused. These are still present in the game's sound test as sounds 22-24. In Roy's trailer, you can hear Marth saying the first clip above when he is countering.

Mewtwo

Mewtwo_win01_01

Mewtwo saying "Watashi wa makeru wake niwa ikanai", translating as "There is no way I can lose." Similarly to Melee, this voice clip is used in Japanese versions of the game in Mewtwo's victory poses, but is overwritten with files where Mewtwo doesn't talk in international releases.

Mewtwo_win02_01

Mewtwo saying "Watashi wa naze koko ni iru no ka... ?", which translates to "Why am I here... ?" Same situation as the above audio clip.

Mewtwo_win03_01

Mewtwo saying "Orokana.", which translates to... "Fool." Guess what happened here.

Rosalina & Luma

Rosetta_Attack07

Rosalina playfully yelling. Appears to have been intended as another generic attacking voice, and is likely a leftover from Mario Kart 7, where Rosalina's other voice files were imported from.

Wario

Wario_010

A groggy moan by the greedy porkster. In the previous game, this file was used when the effects of Wario's Final Smash (Wario-Man) ran out, and he reverted to his normal form. Under the same circumstances, Wario is silent in this game.

Corrin

Kamui_DamageFly01-2
Male Female




Both genders of Corrin have strong launch yells that are, for one reason or another, never used in-game (they remain silent when taking a high-knockback hit instead). These clips can still be heard in the sound test.

Sound Effects

Hmmm...
To do:
Dig into this more explicitly.

Result_next

This is a leftover from the 3DS version, where it was used to accompany the "Ready for the Next Battle!" graphic on the post-match results screen. A different sound is used in the Wii U version.

Peach_Special_C2_L04

A bizarre sound present in Peach's sound effect bank. As "C" stands for Custom moves, and "L" is an abbreviation for a character's Down-B special move in the audio files, one may speculate that this was intended to be used for Light Veggie, the second variation of Peach's Vegetable special.

Sheik_Appear01

This sound was used in Brawl when Sheik teleported on-screen before a match started. As Sheik uses a different effect for her entrance here, this file was made redundant.

Unused Narration

Round 1!
Round 2!
Round 3!
Round 4!
Final Round!

A set of early announcements correlating to the "Tourney" mode, which was planned to launch with the game, but wasn't added until patch 1.10. The unused announcements here are different to the clips used in-game, being grouped with the narration used in menus rather than the sound archive reserved for Tourney Mode, and announcements for quarterfinal and semifinal rounds are noticeably missing.

Clear!

This file could have been used in a variety of situations, but simply isn't used anywhere in the game.

Unused Custom Moves

One of the new gimmicks of the 3DS and Wii U Smash games is the fact that every special move of each character has received two alternate versions, called "Custom Moves". However, there were apparently plans for a third variation of each special move.

Hmmm...
To do:
Replace the videos with new ones. The current ones were removed by Nintendo.

While most of them are nonfunctional versions of their regular special moves, there are some interesting exceptions:

  • Mario was allegedly supposed to get an alternate version of the FLUDD, which would deal electric damage.
  • Various Up Specials, like Ike's Aether or King Dedede's Super Dedede Jump, originally had a variant where they would fall to the ground slower. It's unknown if those versions really would deal no damage, or if that's just a case of missing data.
  • Most of the third variants of projectile specials, like most of Mega Man's specials or Bowser Jr.'s Neutral Special, do not spawn projectiles. In the case of these examples, this is an important fact, because these specials do have variants where the projectile uses a completely different model (like Mega Man's Metal Blade/Hyper Bomb/Shadow Blade or Bowser Jr's Cannon Ball being replaced with a small tornado).
  • Palutena's basic movement gets corrupted completely, so it's unknown how much has been done for her.
  • The third variant of Ness' PK Thunder strangely crashes the game. That's the only special move variant used by a non-DLC character that does such a thing.

Unused Move Properties

A sourspot hitbox for Lucas' forward aerial attack exists in memory, but it is automatically disabled the same time it appears, and so cannot be activated under normal circumstances. The hitbox deals 6% and uses the "weak punch" sound effect used for a number of other attacks in the game.

Unused Stage Icons

Before the 1.0.8 patch that implemented the Miiverse stage, there were a few placeholder icons showing off an earlier version of the stage with thicker platforms and a darker background.

Unused Used (Version 1.0.8+)

Unused Files and Text

Dummy Trophy Texture

SSBWiiUDummyTexture.png

A generic placeholder texture found in the "util" ("stc_fig_blur_shadow_set") file, grouped together with the trophies and isolated to its own file. The name implies it was a placeholder spectral texture of some sort.

Empty 3DS Stages

Directories for two stages from the 3DS version are present with the rest of the stages: Mushroomy Kingdom (XMarioPast) and 3D Land (3DLand). The only file remaining in each directory is the item parameter file.

Nearly Empty Sound Priority Files

soundprioritytable_fighter
soundprioritytable_minigame

These nearly empty sound priority files, which are normally used to adjust music frequency of stages and the menu, point to an earlier build in which the music of other things could be adjusted. "sound_prioritytable_minigame" suggests that it could have been possible to adjust the frequency of certain songs with the various minigames (Target Blast, Home Run Contest, Trophy Rush) at some point. The exact nature of soundprioritytable_fighter is unknown.

Empty Sound Effects

snd_se_joucyu_00000000.idsp
snd_se_item_add_00000000_001.idsp
snd_se_narration_menu_00000000.idsp
snd_se_stageedit_00000000.idsp

Empty sound effects. Their filenames suggest certain points of interest, but their exact uses are unknown.

With the exception of the narration_menu, these sound effects were probably used throughout development. "joucyu" might be "常駐" in Japanese, which would make it a sound effect for a terminate and stay resident program.

Unused Boss Character Art

Virus

Out of all the unused boss character art, these are the most interesting. The Virus characters from the Dr. Mario series were apparently set to appear as bosses for a scrapped Dr. Mario-themed stage, which was sadly cut and left the Doc with no place to call home. The Viruses do appear as a Trophy, however, and this art does reuse the render.

(Source: [Random Talking Bush])

Others

Within the files for the character select screen art are the bosses. What use they exactly served during development is a mystery, but they're there. Metal Face seems to be in a T-Pose, and all of the Master Core forms are present, including the Core itself.

Icons for the in-game health HUD. The other bosses use cropped versions of the portraits above, but these 3 are of interest. Master Core's icons are used in the 3DS version, but are heavily obscured due to the Swarm covering the lower screen.

The only unused icons on the roster itself: Master Hand, Crazy Hand, and the two as a team. There is also one for the Master Core.

Stock icons to go along nicely with the respective enemies. KOing Meta Ridley in Pyrosphere will simply have him revert to his normal form therefore making use of his default Brawl stock icon for some reason. Getting KO credit for defeating Metal Face was a feature cut late in the game, as a tip exists stating that whoever finishes him off gets credit for the kill. Virus' placeholder icon uses Kirby's from a earlier version of the game where he has his mouth open, but in the final he is simply smiling. There also exists some Mii heads, one for each gender.

They were used in an early E3 demo of Smash Bros.

Emblem References

ui_mark_db has multiple emblem references which are not used in either the 3DS or Wii U version. The first is rhythm, which is organized with the fighters. The second is Diary, which is organized with stage. Rhythm seems to refer to a character from the Rhythm Heaven series, and Diary may refer to a Swapnote stage. When examining the emblem texture files, it appears that the files were removed.

Other references are plankton and brainage. The former is removed, but brainage can be found.

The filename is mark_30_braintraining.nut. It's unknown whether these potential stages were planned for the 3DS or the Wii U versions of the game, as ui_mark_db has references to emblems that only appear in the 3DS version.

(Source: Source Gaming)

Extra Trophy Categories

There are four trophy categories that would probably appear in the Series Order:

Ice Climbers
Touch! Generations
nintendogs
Tomodachi Life

There is one trophy category that would appear in the Category Order:

Smash Tour

ui\replace\category\ctg_10\ctg_10_Ws.nut is the location of this icon.

The 3DS version also had trophy categories that were unused in its version. However, these trophy categories were later found to be series that had some sort of representation in the Wii U version.

(Source: Source Gaming)

Unused Masterpieces

SuperSmashBrosWiiU-SSB64MasterpieceLogo.png

All files inside soft_50 contain the game logos that is seen in-game. soft_50_SuperSmashBros.nut contains what appears to be a placeholder logo for the original Super Smash Bros. as all other Masterpiece games have their original game logo used.

The Masterpiece ROM files are placed in the soft folder of the data folder and have three folders inside them labeled gb, hvc and shvc which represent Game Boy, NES, and SNES respectively. As there is no folder for N64, which most likely would've been labeled as NUS, this shows that this is icon is the only remnant left of the demo.

SuperSmashBrosWiiU-UnusedFireEmblemMasterpieceLogo.png

The logo for the NES Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light is also found inside ui\replace\soft\soft_50 under soft_50_FireEmblem.nut. This Masterpiece title exists in the Japanese version of the game, but was removed in the international releases since the original Fire Emblem never made an appearance outside Japan until the release of the Nintendo DS remake of Shadow Dragon.

Unlike Super Smash Bros., Fire Emblem contains files inside the soft_51 and soft_52 folders that contain the screencap of the game and a render of Marth respectively. However, the ROM file used for Fire Emblem, according to ui_soft_db is labeled as FA5.bin, is not in the game's data in the international versions of the game, but are most likely in the Japanese version of the game.

Unused Text

Unlocked the Gamer stage! Beware the mother's gaze!
Unlocked the Temple stage! Time to fight way above the clouds!

It seems that Gamer and Temple were unlockable stages at one point.

Unused Model Features

Hmmm...
To do:
Xenoblade trophies (Fiora, Mumkhar, Sharla, Melia, etc.) all have their gameplay textures unused, but included in the model.

Skull Kid

SSB4skullkidface.png
SSB4skullkidtex.png

The model for the Assist Trophy Skull Kid has various features that aren't used in any way. His face, complete with a modeled beak, is still present under the mask. There is even texture space dedicated to it, located in the bottom right corner of the model's texture.


In the top-right corner of the texture is texturing for a pipe instrument, much like the one used by the generic Skull Kids in Ocarina of Time. The Assist Trophy does not use any sort of instrument, as the assist trophy is based on the Skull Kid from Majora's Mask.

The eyes on Majora's Mask are rigged to the base hat bone rather than the head bone like the rest of the mask.

Falcon's Face

Captain Falcon's face texture contains some unused mapping for his eyes, ears, and brow – they're also included on the normal map, naturally. This mapping is a remnant of an earlier version of Falcon's head, where they modeled his complete face. In the final, they ended up deleting the face geometry covered up by his helmet for efficiency reasons.

In Brawl, a similar texture also went unused.

Behold, his confused expression.

King Dedede Textures

An early Dedede texture that was edited from his Brawl one. Some of the painted-on shading has been edited out, making leeway for a normal map to do more of the work. It was also darkened and hue shifted.

It eventually became the final, seen to the right. Like the other Character textures, all the details and shading are provided via other maps.

Roll's Undergarments

Hmmm...
To do:
Insert image here(?)

Roll's undergarments are modeled and textured, but are censored in the final game for obvious reasons. For contrast, Peach's are censored even in the texture, while Roll's are not.

Blue Falcon Image

SSB4Ubluefalconsecret.png

Hidden in the alpha channel of one of the Blue Falcon's textures is... a picture of the Blue Falcon. The particular image used is one of the official renders from F-Zero GX.

Prince of Sablé's Blade

If you look at the the Prince of Sablé's side, you'll notice he carries a sheathed sword. He doesn't actually pull it out for any of his attacks, since he only uses his Frog and Snake forms. Despite this, the sword's whole blade is modeled, just hidden behind his sheath.

WiiU SableSword Render.png

Its design is consistent with its appearance in the prince's official artwork, with the triangle shape at its base.

Smash-Bros-Wii-U-Prince Sable.png

Wonderful 101 Trophy Textures

All of The Wonderful 101 Trophies use textures lifted straight from their game of origin, meaning that their real eyes are still present under their masks. In addition to the eyes present on the face texture, everyone except Wonder-Red and Wonder-Yellow have textures and meshes for their real eyes (and even then, Wonder-Red's eyes are completely blank), but there is no way to see them in the trophy viewer. One of the textures for Wonder-Green's gun includes an alternate facial expression for him, which goes completely unused.

Unused Roy Skin

Hmmm...
To do:
Make a render of the model itself.

There's an extra Roy color slot that goes unused, labeled c08. The model itself is his default costume minus the cape and headband part at the back of his head. In addition, there are some minor differences between their textures, including lower resolution hair and an earlier version of the body. (The differences on the latter might be hard to notice, but they become clear once you switch between the images.)

Unused Used
SSBWiiU RoyEarly.png SSBWiiU RoyFinal.png

Unused Stage Features

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, stages often contain much more than can be seen with the standard camera and background features are surprisingly detailed.

While much of this off-screen level geometry is technically visible in reflections, things like the backs of buildings and the examples below can only be seen with camera hacking.

Gaur Plain

SmashWiiUGaurPlain.jpg

Part of the mountain on the left side of the stage continues under the ground. Impossible to see in normal gameplay.

GAMER

GAMER Oddity.jpg

One of the stage formations strangely has a sticker texture hidden in one of the platforms. Once again, impossible to see in normal gameplay.

Mario Galaxy

Hmmm...
To do:
Picture.

The insides of the Starshrooms have a fully textured and modeled interior, but they can not be seen normally without camera clipping.

The Great Cave Offensive

Normally Seen Underneath the Lava
Great Cave Offensive Used.jpg Great Cave Offensive Unused.jpg

There is a floor underneath one of the lava waves, but it is never uncovered. Additionally, one of the crystal bunches continues through a wall, which can't be seen either.

Regional Differences

Hmmm...
To do:

R.O.B.

Like his appearance in Mario Kart DS, R.O.B.'s default color scheme changes based on the region of the game: his Famicom colors in Japan, and his NES colors in North America and Europe. In Brawl, his Famicom palette was the default in all regions.

Japan International
SSB3DS ROB Famicom skin fighter.png SSB3DS ROB NES skin fighter.png

His trophies and costume orders have also been changed accordingly. Other icons, such as his icon on tickets in Special Orders, remain unchanged.

Wonder-Pink's Trophy

International Japan
SSB4U-WonderPinkTrophy.pngSSB4U-WonderPinkBodyTex.png SSB4U-WonderPinkTrophy JPN.pngSSB4U-WonderPinkBodyTex JPN.png

In order to comply with the CERO, Wonder-Pink's trophy was given a completely different pose in the Japanese version of the game. In addition, her legs and undergarments were shadowed on her textures.

Character Names

Some of the characters have a different name depending on the version.

Palutena's Guidance

Palutena's Guidance is, for the most part, the same between the American and European versions of the game. However, Duck Hunt and the Koopalings have a slightly different guidance.

The Koopalings are called "Bowser's Minions" in Europe.

Hmmm...
To do:
Get European-version rips to compare.
US Europe

The Duck Hunt pair is localized as "Duck Hunt" in America and "Duck Hunt Duo" in Europe. Pit and Palutena have slightly different conversations as a result of this.

Miscellaneous Differences

In addition to the usual localization changes to accommodate games and characters receiving different names in different regions, a few other differences can be spotted:

  • Both the male and female Wii Fit Trainers have British voice actors in UK releases of the game, likely to fit in with the way the Wii Fit games were localized. Other European countries also adapt this change, although obviously with their own respective languages. Due to what appears to be an oversight, the male trainer's British actor can occasionally be heard on the Wii Fit Studio stage in the American release.
  • Kirby has different voice clips when he copies Palutena and Shulk's neutral special moves to accommodate for the new translations, a rarity in the series as they usually go untranslated. However, his voice for Jigglypuff goes untranslated yet again.
  • Trophy descriptions display significant differences on the whole, even between different English releases. Notably, the European version of the Lip's Stick trophy incorrectly identifies it as originating in Tetris Attack instead of Panel de Pon.
  • Just like in previous games, metric units are changed to imperial units in the North American version. Since all internal data remains in metric, several challenges have unusual-looking requirements, such as "Hit Sandbag 3280 feet" (1000m).
  • The order that playable demos are listed in Masterpieces is different in every version according to the original games' release dates. The North American version lists the release year and month for each game, but the European version lists only the year.
  • The stat distribution titles have the same names and regional differences as they do on the 3DS version, including the fancy Portuguese and Spanish ones.
  • The Japanese version of the game has a Masterpiece demo of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light. Since the game was never released internationally, it was obviously removed from all other versions.
  • The voice clips in the Sound Test in the Japanese version have a subtitle that indicates who provided them in the sidebar. Apparently Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe didn't want to do the work of matching the roles of the dubbed characters, so it was removed in international versions.

Ashley's Theme Ver. 2

The Japanese version features a new remix of Ashley's Song which is used in place of the English version of the Brawl remix. Despite this, hidden in the international version's music files is the name and description translated.

Mewtwo's Japanese

As in Melee, Mewtwo's Japanese quotes were not translated for the European and American versions, and were instead removed entirely.

Revisional Differences

Version 1.0.1

This patch was distributed the same day as the North American release, and fixed a few minor bugs.

Version 1.0.2

Distributed via patch on January 29, 2015.

  • Added several normal stages to 8-Player Smash (albeit with some features toned down) and added Omega (Final Destination) versions of a few stages.
  • Wii Fit Studio (no mirror in the background), Smashville (no villagers in the background), Town and City (no villagers in the background), Lylat Cruise (no stage transitions), Norfair (no hazards), Pyrosphere (no hazards), Luigi's Mansion (mansion isn't breakable), Mario Circuit (Brawl) (no racers), and Pokemon Stadium 2 (no stage transitions) all become available as regular stages.
  • Mario Galaxy, Mario Circuit (Brawl), Great Cave Offensive, Lylat Cruise, Pokemon Stadium 2, and Town and City all become available as Omega stages.

Version 1.0.6

Yes, that version number is correct - the Wii U version was updated to match the 3DS version number. This update was distributed on April 15, 2015, and is required in order to play online. Replay data created in previous versions will no longer be viewable.

  • Adds support for DLC, with a link to the eShop added alongside the Notifications tab. Additionally, data for Mewtwo is added, and can be used by purchasing the Mewtwo DLC.
  • Implements data sharing in-game and via Miiverse.
  • Five 8-Player Smash stages are given Omega variants: Delfino Plaza, Port Town Aero Dive, Wooly World, Orbital Gate Assault, and Pilotwings. Wii Fit Studio is listed a second time in the official patch notes; the reason for this is currently unknown.
  • Adjustments are made to the characters in order to balance gameplay (full list of confirmed changes here).

Mewtwo DLC

The Mewtwo DLC not only adds the character as a fighter and as an opponent in the various game modes, but also adds three trophies that cannot be obtained without the DLC: A new Mewtwo trophy (which has the exact same name and does not take the place of the old one), a Mewtwo (Alt.) trophy, and a trophy for Mewtwo's Final Smash, Psystrike. The DLC also adds Mewtwo-related Tips.

Version 1.0.7

This patch was released on April 24, 2015.

  • Addresses a bug that causes a player's Global Smash Power ranking to become corrupted after playing as Mewtwo in certain game modes, preventing them from playing online.
  • Fixes a glitch involving exploiting garbage data in the form of Mewtwo's "custom moves", which it does not have.
(Source: Nintendo)

Version 1.0.8
