Ah, Super Smash Bros. updates. The joy of accessing new features and experiencing the obligatory ‘gameplay adjustments’ after the grief of finding out you can’t play multiplayer until you download the update. Nintendo have released the details of the Version 1.0.5 update for the 3DS on their site. It adds two awesome new features, Share Mode and amiibo compatibility, the details of which you can view below:

Update Details:

This update also includes the previous game updates.

    • Share mode has been added.
        • Users will be able to post photos, replay data, and Mii Fighter data to the official server to share with other users around the world. Users will also be able to search and download the content as well.
          *Users can only post their own content. Content posted to the server will be deleted after 30 days.
        • Users will be able to share and exchange photos, replay data, and Mii Fighter data with users on their 3DS Friend List.
          *Content will be received when the Nintendo 3DS is connected to the Internet
          *It may take some time to receive the data

    • amiibo functionality has been added to New Nintendo 3DS XL
      Users can tap their amiibo figure to the touchscreen to transform them into “figure players (FP)” to battle, train, and level-up their FP.
      *FPs that were trained in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U can be used in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.
      *Nintendo 3DS/XL systems will be compatible with amiibo functionality using a peripheral device scheduled to launch in 2015 and the software update that will follow.
    • In order to let you play the game more comfortably, we have also fixed some issues.

Please note: Once users install the update data (Ver. 1.0.5), they will no longer be able to play local multiplayer with users without the update installed. Additionally, any replay data that was saved prior to the update will no longer be playable.
Users will be required to download this update prior to using the software’s online multiplayer features.
