Mewtwo online breaking glitch fixed in 1.0.7 patch for Super Smash Bros. 4 out now

If you've been worried about playing certain modes because of the Mewtwo glitches, your fears should no longer be applicable, as Nintendo dropped a 1.0.7 patch for Super Smash Bros. 4 on the Wii U and 3DS today.

The Wii U release is a 21 megabyte update, while the 3DS patch takes 1,715 blocks on your SD Card.

Also, unreported in Nintendo's official patch notes is that Mewtwo's unofficial custom moves have been fixed as well.

'Being sold in pieces what would normally be considered 100% altogether is intolerable' - Smash Bros. creator on DLC

In the most recent installment of his weekly Famitsu column, Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai discussed a fairly touchy subject in the video game industry -- downloadable content.

While Sakurai isn't entirely against the idea of post-launch content, he does make it clear that his disdain is geared towards content that should be included in the original product but is sold separately.

"Having to pay afterwards is extremely unsatisfying," Sakurai said. "I completely understand how customers feel. Being sold in pieces what would normally be considered 100% altogether is intolerable."

He went on to explain that he and his team very well could have kept some of their fully completed Super Smash Bros. 4 characters out of the finished product and sold them as DLC, but it wouldn't have been the right thing to do.

"Considering the development costs and the fact that content-wise it is already more than enough, if we were to pursue pure profit, that would be the way to go.”

Who's your Super Smash fantasy character? Tell us who you want to see as upcoming DLC for Smash 4

A few days ago, we discovered the possibility that Nintendo may be planning on releasing five new characters for Smash 4.

We already know that Lucas will fill one of these slots, and we are speculating that Ryu and Roy are going to take up two more. That still leaves two unaccounted for.

We'd like to ask you, the EventHubs readers, who you think might be the next fighters to enter the fray. I'm going to start by sounding off with a few characters that I've heard people hoping for or that I think would be good fits:

-Banjo-Kazooie
-Viewtiful Joe
-Star Wolf
-Solid Snake
-Ice Climbers
-Mike Tyson

Smashers! Please comment and tell us who you want to see and/or who you think we will see. It's easy enough to fire off a name or two, we also want to hear why you think your choice(s) would be a good fit in the Smash universe.

'Mewtwo is the epitome of a glass cannon' Super Smash Academy breaks down the 150th Pokémon and newest addition to the Smash 4 roster

Being one of the five characters from Melee that did not make it into Brawl, it's been quite some time since we've seen Mewtwo in Super Smash Bros.

Finally, a few months after the release of Smash 4, the psychic powerhouse is back in our hands and seemingly stronger than ever.

Super Smash Academy has come out with a nifty breakdown video to help you get started with the new DLC character. Mewtwo's large size and floaty nature make him something of an easy target, but he makes up for this in the fact that he hits like a truck.

Learn which attacks, strategies and maneuvers best befit the legendary Pokémon. Hit the jump and check it out.

Next stop for Smash Bros... the silver screen? It appears Sony Pictures could be looking to make a Super Smash Bros. film

You probably recall the massive Sony Pictures Entertainment leak last year wherein thousands of e-mails and private documents were exposed to the public light.

Among those thousands of documents were a series of messages between former Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal and Sony film producer Avi Arad about acquiring film rights to a couple of Nintendo's titles, including Super Smash Bros.

ArsTechnica has searched through WikiLeaks and discovered some of these messages. Hit the jump to see some of their findings.

5 new potential character slots found in Super Smash Bros. 3DS files, more stage slots also discovered

Earlier this week, we heard rumblings of potential future appearances by Street Fighter's Ryu and Fire Emblem's Roy in Super Smash Bros. 4 based on some background music sound files found in the 3DS version of the game after the latest update dropped. While these files are in no way a confirmation that these two fighters will be featured in the game as DLC, some recent developments have indeed thickened the plot.

Reddit user shinyquagsire23 continues to mine the 3DS version's data, and in doing so, has discovered what appears to be five additional character slots after Mewtwo -- the first Super Smash Bros. 4 DLC fighter. These slots are currently labeled "Mario" as a placeholder, however, this may indicate that Nintendo plans to add even more playable fighters to the game.

We already know that one slot is going to Lucas, the second DLC fighter officially announced by Nintendo, but the remaining four slots are still a mystery. Current speculation dictates that Ryu and Roy will take up two of those slots, and the remaining two slots will go to those who receive the most votes from the Super Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot that opened up recently.

But wait, there's more!

Infinite combo discovered for Pikachu using custom moves - With some practice, you'll be sure to catch 'em all with it

Before Smash 4 was released, there was a lot of discussion how much custom moves would be able to impact the game itself, and here's a pretty clear answer - if a Pikachu player opts to use Thunder Wave as their neutral special and Meteor Quick Attack as their up-special, the character can perform combos that last even longer than the Pokémon anime!

This infinite, and variations of it for different characters and situations, was shown by the always amazing My Smash Corner in a very detailed explanation what's happening, how to perform it, and when you can feasibly perform it.

It is noted within the video, and worth highlighting, that this infinite cannot be started from 0%, but that your opponent needs to be around 40% for you to get it going. As stated in the video, though, getting to that point is not difficult at all for our cute little electric rodent.

Hit the jump to check out the video detailing this new discovery in full.

Mewtwo glitch may prevent you from being able to play online - Here's what to avoid to make sure you don't get hit by this game-breaking bug

Mewtwo isn't available to all players yet, but for everyone who registered both the 3DS and Wii U versions of Super Smash Bros. 4 with Club Nintendo (for those of you outside of Scandinavia, who actually have Club Nintendo), it's already available for download and fully playable.

However, there are some issues that have come to light that may severely impact your gameplay experience, which you'd do best in avoiding. Namely, using Mewtwo in certain modes can cause troubles with your save file, which lead to you no longer being able to play online at all.

Hit the jump for the full details on what to avoid.

We've reset the extremely popular tiers for Super Smash Bros. 4 on the Wii U, because of today's 1.0.6 balance patch being released, which also added Mewtwo as a playable character.

As is always the case any time we reset the tiers, we create archives for them, which you can find on the Smash 4 tiers index page, or you can check out the same images which we've linked up here.

Has Ryu wandered his way into Super Smash? Audio files referencing Ryu and Fire Emblem's Roy may have been found in the newest Smash patch

As I like to do with any and all rumor stories, please let me state that this is only a rumor! We can allow our eyes to widen, hopes to soar and excitement to build, and I'm certainly guilty of all of those things right now, but at the end of the day it's all hearsay until we get that hard confirmation.

Having said that, Ryu may be Shoryukening his way into Super Smash Brothers! Reddit user shinyquagsire23 has claimed to have found some intriguing audio files in the decrypted code for the latest Smash update.

These files reference both Roy, a smash veteran, and Ryu, the poster boy for the Street Fighter franchise.

Diddy loses damage, new ways to perform smash attacks and no more analogue+smash stick tilts; Super Smash Bros. 4 v1.0.6 patch notes

The latest patch for Super Smash Bros. 4 went live today and we have a list of confirmed changes thus far.

There are plenty of speculative tweaks, but only a handful have been confirmed. You can see the confirmed changes from Smash Boards below:


Click images for larger versions

As you can see, Diddy lost a few percentage points of damage on a handful of his moves, likely to the joy of much of the community, while a few of the lower-tier characters received some damage buffs.

Perhaps the most intriguing alterations are in the game engine tweaks. Pressing the A and B buttons simultaneously will now result in a smash attack. Also, you used to be able to perform "tilts" by using both joysticks at the same time, but this is no longer the case. Slightly moving the analogue stick along with the smash stick will also result in a smash attack now.

You can jump over to reddit to see a much longer patch list including unconfirmed changes and busted rumors. We will be updating here as more information is confirmed, so check back often.
