The Super Smash Bros. Update Ver. 1.0.2 patch is available through Nintendo's eShop when you log in right now! It should be the first thing you see when you log in. The description for the patch simply states that "the update is required to play Online mode".

Download now and get it out of the way, so you won't have to worry about any nagging updates that will interrupt your play time when you finally do have Smash in your hands! This update is necessary regardless of your ownership of a physical or digital copy.

Below, made available by Google Translate and the official Japanese Smash website, here's a breakdown of the updated content:

Yeah, the Engrish might make things a bit more complicated than they are. Just know that there are some fixes that make your Smash experience even more happy happy fun time.

Lastly, add me to your 3DS friends list! You may have taken down a Friend Code from me in the past - that was for my old 3DS that is no longer in my possession. Here's my new/current one: 2766 9375 3954 .

I'll be setting up tomorrow's first Smash Bros. centered TAY Fight Club so let me know if you're going to join in on the fun by commenting here with your friend codes. I plan on organizing everyone's information as part of the post tomorrow for ease of use. In addition to your friend code, let me know what your 3DS name is - it may not be the same as your TAY username thus would be confusing when attempting to connect who's who on the friend list.

Okay, that's it for now guys. Smash is right around the corner! Download the update and enjoy the game when it drops! See you on the battlefield tomorrow!

P.S - The gif below demonstrates how matches against me shall fare (Note I'm Bowser Jr. and you're Bowser)

Love you guys!
