Last month, Nintendo released the last batch of additional content for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. But just like with Splatoon, that does not mean the developers are completely done with the game: they’re still going to release new patches when needed. And it’s exactly what happened today!
A few minutes ago, online services for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS were taken down for maintenance. It was in preparation for a new Software update, which is now available. It brings the game to Ver. 1.1.5, and does not add any features or content.
Here’s the “changelog” for Ver. 1.1.5 of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS:
Adjustments have been made to make for a more pleasant gaming experience. [NB: includes game balance changes]
The update is required to play online, as it includes some changes to game balance.
To download this update, you need at least 83MB of free space on your Wii U or external HDD. To do so, you have two options:
