There’s more talk going around about Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS potentially supporting DLC.

Messages have apparently been found in the 3DS version that could be used to create data for downloadable content, for instance. Other recently-discovered code could allow for character and stage DLC to be loaded.

Rumor has it that the shop will be titled “Notifications Shop” – at least in Japanese.

Will any of this pan out? Will Smash Bros. actually get any DLC? Only time will tell…

There was a slew of GameCube inspired Wiimote attachments announced prior to E3 this year, where Nintendo officially announced the GameCube adapter for Wii U which prompted almost all clones to disappear from the market very quickly. It looks like Hori have decided to stay in the game with a particularly stylish controller however, set to be released on December 6 for 2980 yen. This Mario and Luigi themed GameCube inspired controller features a slightly larger d-pad and a turbo button with 3 settings.
