Video: Super Smash Bros for Wii U Nintendo Direct


Yesterday, Nintendo held a Super Smash Bros for Wii U Nintendo Direct. During this direct, they revealed 50 new details about the game. Some of these announcements were underwhelming but it was great to get more information about the game. One of the biggest announcements was the fact that Mewtwo would be made available for both the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game as a DLC character. If you buy both versions you get him for free. You also get a free 2-disc soundtrack from Club Nintendo.

You can learn about all of the information that was released in the Nintendo Direct video above. Do you plan on getting Smash Bros for the Wii U? If you do, be sure to keep a look out for ShortRound and myself!
