Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS
"Super Smash Bros." for Nintendo Wii U and 3DS. Super Smash Bros.

Since its release many fans have speculated that "Super Smash Bros." for 3DS will see many DLC's with different characters, stages and more. Many believe Masahiro Sakurai's "50 new things" Nintendo Direct will showcase some upcoming features for "Smash Bros," for 3DS as well as show off the new features for the Wii U version. Now it seems like a faithful gamer has found new data that suggest those DLC's are closer than ever.

While "Super Smash Bros." for 3DS is jam-packed with all kind of goodies and features gamers will always want more and an inquisitive gamer going by PushDustin has been digging around the 3DS versions code to find details. Among the details found there is supposedly proof of code for the ability to load DLC characters and stages, an in-game shop and support for eight-player battles.

PushDustin analysis which was posted to NeoGAF reads:

The game uses pictures (EFF and BCO for Japanese and English) to animate "A Challenger Appears" on the top screen, so since there is a text version in the dump, either characters are unlocked through connecting to the Wii U, or it will display the text when a character is purchased through the store. Even though I hate to admit it, it's most likely connected to the Wii U menu as there is no other text for the store (it'll probably connect to the E-Shop, or download the page from the Internet). However, there are no additional characters files in the game which severely hurts the chances of this being the case (as the 3DS would have to download quite a bit of data from the Wii U in order to utilize the character).

The 3DS can be used as a controller in 8 player Smash for the Wii U, based on the pictures with the file names: 29CE and 279A (Essentially: the 1-8 Player Icons, and numbers with pictures of 8 fighters). Files with CFC13 are the menu pictures.

At this point this is just speculation and it is wise to take the news with a bit of caution. If it is true we may hear all about it tomorrow during the Nintendo Direct which will stream on Nintendo's website Oct. 23 starting at 3:00 p.m. Pacific / 6:00 p.m. Eastern / 11:00 p.m. UK / midnight CET and that's 7:00 a.m. in Japan.
