King K. Rool Mii costume, Hyrule Castle 64, and more - Is Super Smash Bros. 4's latest DLC worth the purchase? Check out our review

Earlier today, Super Smash Bros. received a fresh update that added balance changes, a new Mii Fighter costume, and more for free. Additionally, a new set of DLC was added to the Nintendo eShop, and we here at EventHubs were quick to scoop it up.

Since downloadable content is not a mandatory expense needed to play the game and it can sometimes be a bit pricey, we wanted to give you, the reader, our thoughts on the latest add-ons in case you were on the fence about picking it up this time around.

Super Smash Bros. 4's latest DLC is very centered around Mii Fighter costumes. Aside from the two classic stages now available for purchase, most of the latest content comes in the form of Mii Fighter outfits.

Super Smash Bros 4 community patch notes detail a massive list of balance changes to characters in latest update

Yesterday, Smash Bros. update 1.1.0 went live worldwide. You'll be happy to notice that the K.K. Slider Hat and Outfit were automatically patched into the game for free. Among this and other surprises–like the Samus armor and Fire Emblem costume DLC–were a variety of balance changes.

While these were undocumented in the release notes, the diligent Smash community immediately went to the lab. Already, they have found an incredible amount of tweaks to the roster, including some fairly significant nerfs and buffs in such a short period of time it's stunning.

Check out some of the still-updated list below that the Smash Bros subreddit has compiled.

Mario throws fireballs, a pokèball, and the middle finger - a first-person, real-life take on Super Smash Bros.

Super Smash Bros. is a fighting game that is played on a 2D stage with 3D character models, but what if the game were played in virtually reality?

The folks over at SoKrispyMedia put together a video showing what it would be like to play Super Smash Bros. in VR. Instead of video game graphics, however, this take on Smash is played out in our world (in a first-person view) with real life actors.

We get to see Mario do battle against Link complete with fireballs and arrows flying everywhere. Additionally, Mario fires off a hand gesture that's a little uncharacteristic, but hey, there are no rules of real-life Smash.

Of the many fan-made short films we've seen, this is definitely an interesting one. The effects look awesome, and it's pretty funny to see the player flailing his arms around with a VR headset on while Mario actually performs some epic maneuvers.

ZeRo on his way to sponsorship with Team SoloMid?

While it hasn't been officially announced yet, rumors have been spreading about Gonzalo “ZeRo” Barrios, perhaps currently the best Smash 4 player on the planet, joining Team SoloMid.

According to Daily Dot, "sources close to the player and organization" say that ZeRo will be jumping on board with Team SoloMid some time in the coming weeks.

With first place victories in Smash 4 at both EVO and CEO this year, it's almost a wonder that ZeRo has spent any time at all without a sponsor's prefix before to his name.

Should these rumors turn out to be true, ZeRo will be joining Melee player TSM|Leffen as the second fighting game player to be sponsored by TSM. Team SoloMid is known for their strong representation in Counter Strike, League of Legends, Hearthstone and Smite.

Thank you to LordAkira for the submission.

If she weren't for the fan reaction, Nairo probably would never have used Zero Suit Samus - the top Smash 4 player talks tiers, best players and more

With a second place finish at this year's CEO and a third place finish at EVO, Nairo has shown the world that Samus doesn't need all her fancy gear to lock down victories.

In an online interview, Dezmu discusses a variety of game-related topics with the top Smash 4 player. These include why he uses Zero Suit Samus, his plans for the future and who he thinks are the best in the business right now.

Nairo explains that he didn't intend to use Zero Suit Samus seriously, but crowd reactions to some of his early matches gave him an inclination to keep going with her. She's not the most popular character in Smash 4, but being associated as the strongest player with her is certainly a draw.

You can see the interview, which is a bit NSFW at times, after the jump.

Mortal Kombat X tops the best-selling chart for 2015 so far

Mortal Kombat X was released in April of this year, and so far, its sales have been strong.

How strong, you ask? Well, according to Fortune -- a business magazine published by Time -- Mortal Kombat X is the best selling of the year so far.

It should be noted that the sales numbers calculated were not console specific, but actually illustrate the total number of copies sold across all platforms. Additionally, this chart lists the best-selling games, not best-selling new releases. Hence, you'll see games such as Super Smash Bros. 4 make an appearance.

Hit the jump to check out the top 10 best-selling games of 2015.

What if the Super Smash cast had X-ray attacks? Link's Hookshot just became a lot more terrifying...

Careful observation and clever editing have resulted in quite an interesting watch as Brilliant Buffoons have created another Smash Bros X Mortal Kombat X hybrid video.

This video is set in the Smash Bros. world, but the traditional, playful and cartoonish hit sparks have been replaced with bone breaking kill moves. Instead of Diddy's playful chomp, we get Mileena's ravenous head maul. Instead of Captain Falcon's trademark knee, we get Kotal Khan's skull shattering X-ray.

We'd actually seen a similar video posted last month, but with updates and new characters in both games, the concept is more than fresh enough to revisit.

We should warn you that it is a bit gruesome, but surely fun to watch. Hit the jump below to see the clever mash up.

Smash Bros. creator's heartfelt eulogy for Satoru Iwata

In his most recent Weekly Famitsu column, Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai wrote a touching eulogy for Satoru Iwata -- Nintendo's former President -- who passed away on July 11, 2015.

Their history dates back to when Sakurai originally applied for his former job at HAL Laboratory Inc., as Mr. Iwata was one of his interviewers. The two went on to work closely together, and even shared ideas that led to the building of an early prototype for the first Super Smash Bros. game.

“Our positions and locations changed throughout our long association," Sakurai wrote. "He was the best superior I ever had and a man who understood me better than anyone.”

Below is Kotaku's translation.
