Chief among the latest additions is a level based on Nintendo’s recently released game design toolkit Super Mario Maker. The stage generates randomized layouts that draw from Super Mario Maker‘s DIY creative elements, providing a unique challenge with every match. The Super Mario Maker level is available for play in both the 3DS and Wii U versions of Super Smash Bros.
Nintendo 3DS players get another new stage as part of this week’s cross-platform software update. The “Duck Hunt” level, inspired by Nintendo’s 8-bit light gun game, puts players in front of a pixelated backdrop filled with characters that influence the on-screen action. Previously released as a Wii U-exclusive level, the Duck Hunt stage is now available as a free download for 3DS owners.
Also arriving this week is the “Pirate Ship” level, which is currently exclusive to the Wii U edition of Super Smash Bros. Adapted from a level previously featured in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the Pirate Ship stage features settings and characters from the GameCube and Wii U adventure game The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.
The Pirate Ship level is priced at $2. The Super Mario Maker stage is priced at $2.50 on each available platform, and players can purchase both the Wii U and 3DS versions for $3.50.
The latest patch additionally rolls out seven new Mii Fighter costumes, expanding player customization options. New costumes include business suits for all three Mii Fighter variations, along with character skins inspired by Nintendo franchises like Star Fox, F-Zero, Super Mario, and Kid Icarus. Also up for grabs are two costumes lifted from Capcom’s popular Monster Hunter series.
Mii Fighter costumes are available for $.75 each. All costumes can also be purchased in a bundle for $5.25 on each platform, or $8.05 for both editions. A full bundle that collects all recently released stages and costumes is priced at $7.75 for a single platform or $13.53 for both.
