Everything You Need to Know About the Recent Smash Bros. Update

Wrapped up neatly with a bow.

To hype up fans just before E3, Nintendo did exactly as we expected them to and showcased plenty of new features, characters, outfits, and more that are coming to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
