A little over a year following the release of "Super Smash Bros." for Wii U and 3DS, the game is finally releasing the latest update that includes new characters and stages through a DLC. Latin Times reports that Nintendo UK even released a new trailer featuring all the DLC characters and stages to look forward to. The new trailer features Mewtwo, Lucas, Roy, Ryu, Cloud, Corrin, and Bayonetta.

In addition, the new patch for Wii U and 3DS includes tweaks for the new Zelda characters.

According to Crossmap, Bayonetta's strengths lie in her ability to be fast and light. She can easily be launched and careened off towards an opponent, or she can use her Bullet Climax to send bullets to her opponent. She's also equipped with a Madama Butterfly summon (because she's an umbra witch), but that, too, has a downside. Her summon takes some time, placing her in a vulnerable situation.

Corrin, on the other hand, has the upper hand against Marth and Lucina when it comes to speed. However, in terms of strength, it seems he lags behind Roy and Ike. Corrin's strength lies in his dragonlance attack, which requires his opponents to be within his reach, so gamers using Corrin must have the skill to get a little to close for comfort. The benefit of this attack, though, is that it does a lot of damage. Corrin also has an aerial attack that enables him to grow wings that protect him from attacks from behind, and also helps him jump around ledges. Meanwhile, Corrin is also equipped wit a dragon head that enables him to summon dragon powers and help hunt airborne enemies. He can also attack using a water ball, which paralyzes his enemies.

Nintendo Life reports that according to creator Masahiro Sakurai, the addition of these characters came as an objective to bring something new to the table. In fact, he believes that it's imperative that they keep the game interesting for gamers, who need to be constantly entertained by new content. He also admits that while they did not change the game's core rules too much, or expanded extra gauges or features, the game can still bring forth new experiences for fans.

"Super Smash Bros." began in 1999, when it was introduced for the Nintendo 64. "Super Smash Bros." for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U was announced during the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2011, and was released in October 2014 for Nintendo 3DS, and in November for the Wii U.
