Mewtwo will be available to Super Smash Bros. players on Wii U and 3DS next spring so long as they have both versions. Additionally, the character will be sold as paid DLC at some point in the future.

Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai said earlier this week that there are no plans currently to release DLC other than Mewtwo. Nintendo is now echoing similar comments.

A representative told GameSpot:

“Mewtwo will be made available to purchase as add-on content in the future, and is also available as part of the Super Smash Bros. Club Nintendo promotion, which offers consumers different ways to obtain this content. There are no other plans regarding paid add-on content at this stage.”

Earlier this month, one GameStop location over on the West Coast held a Super Smash Bros. for Wii U preview event. That’s when the story of “Karissa The Destroyer” began. Karissa was thought to have taken down several top Smash Bros. players, but we quickly learned that the entire thing was likely staged.

We now have definitive proof that the event was nothing more than a stunt done by GameStop. I won’t spoil the “secret” of how the store managed to pull it off – just watch the video below!
