This article lists differences between the NTSC and PAL versions of Super Smash Bros. 4. As with Brawl and unlike in Smash 64 and Melee, these differences are largely aesthetic due to online play between regions.

In-game text[edit]

There are two different English translations of the game, one for the NTSC version and one for the PAL version. These translations are much more distinct than in Brawl, although they share a number of elements. Aside from name differences (as seen below), many trophy descriptions, Boxing Ring titles and other pieces of text are also different; articles on this wiki display both English translations if applicable. Similar differences apply to the French and Spanish languages, which also have two separate translations.

Voice actors[edit]

The only voice difference between the NTSC and PAL English versions applies to Wii Fit Trainer, who is voiced with an American accent in the former and with a British accent by different actors in the latter. Additionally, Lucario, Wii Fit Trainer, and Sonic are voiced in the respective language in French, Spanish, German and Italian. Greninja and Jigglypuff, who have different names in French and German, also have different voices in their respective languages (while Charizard also has different names in French and German, it doesn't speak or say its name and is therefore left undubbed; similarly, Mewtwo's Japanese dialogue is removed entirely in all Western versions). Both French versions share voice actors between these characters as well as the announcer, with the main difference audio-wise being the announcer's name calls and pronunciations, to account for name differences between the two French versions as well as differing European and Canadian pronunciations for certain names (for example, the pronunciation of Bowser's name in the NTSC French version is slightly closer to its pronunciation in English). The Spanish versions share the same announcer and the voices for Lucario and Sonic in the same way as the French versions, but the NTSC version gives Wii Fit Trainer its Latin American voice actors. The NTSC version of the game also lacks the Portuguese translation completely.

Wii U version[edit]

Stages[edit]

Pilotwings, Gamer, and Wrecking Crew are the only stages to be the same in all languages.

  1. Called "Jungla Kong (64)" in the Tips.
  2. Called "Selva Kongo (64)" in the Tips.
  3. Temple was first misnamed "La Cúspide" (Summit) in the Spanish 50-Fact Extravaganza. While it seemed at the time as an oversight of the video's translation team, the erroneous name was kept in the game's initial release. It was later patched to the proper name, "Templo", as it was called in PAL releases of Melee and Brawl.

Trivia[edit]

  • In the Italian version, Skull Kid's name was initially translated as "Bimbo Perduto" ("Lost Kid"). Later patches changed the name to the English "Skull Kid", to reflect the character's name in the Italian translation of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D.
  • Charizard's, Jigglypuff's and Greninja's French names are not shown on the North American packaging for their amiibo, even though North American packaging typically displays the NTSC French and Spanish names for the character if they differ from the English name. While this is similar to the defunct French-Canadian dubbed version of the Pokémon anime, this is inconsistent with the Canadian French translation of SSB4, as well as all French-language Pokémon material at the time (which is exported from France internationally).
  • Super Smash Bros. Brawl used "allenatore", the Italian word for "trainer", in Pokémon Trainer's translated name ("Allenatore di Pokémon"). Despite this, the Wii Fit Trainer does not use this translation, instead using the English "trainer".
    • Similarly, the French version of Brawl uses "dresseur", the word for "trainer", for the Pokémon Trainer, but uses "entraîneuse/entraîneur", the word for "coach", for the Wii Fit Trainer in SSB4.
