Talk:Downloadable content

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

Possible move[edit]

While a page for downloadable content is probably needed, a page just for Mewtwo and the very rare character probably isn't. May I suggest moving it to "Downloadable content" instead? This covers anything not included in the game at launch - including the Miiverse stage, and any other additions in the future. Mistiryshak (talk) 17:08, 24 October 2014 (EDT)

Support, per above. Rtzxy SmashSig.jpeg Smashing! 17:10, 24 October 2014 (EDT)
Would the updates be included as well (at least as a "main article" link)? PikaSamus (talk) PikaSamus 17:11, 24 October 2014 (EDT)
Yes, I'd think so. Mistiryshak (talk) 17:12, 24 October 2014 (EDT)
Now after rethinking it, that would make more sense. Support Zm123bro (talk) 17:13, 24 October 2014 (EDT)

Miiverse is DLC or update?[edit]

Was it ever confirmed that Miiverse would have to be downloaded? It seemed as if it would be in an update. Should we differentiate that from Mewtwo, who has to be manually downloaded and isnt part of an update? Zm123bro (talk) 18:59, 24 October 2014 (EDT)

Updates are technically DLC. PikaSamus (talk) PikaSamus 09:46, 27 October 2014 (EDT)

Brawl's DLC Rumors[edit]

Should we mention the rumors about Brawl's DLC on here? It just seems like something to mention on a page about DLC. Aidan the Gamer 19:15, 31 October 2014 (EDT)

SSB4 DLC: True Or False?[edit]

Hey, guys! I think have visual proof that the Ice Climbers, Wolf, Lucas, and Snake might be DLC for SSB4! The Master HandIt's time. MasterHandSig.jpg

It would have to follow SW:NEWGAME. But, may as well post it. Although I doubt the ICs are coming back. They broke the 3DS version, didn't they? ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe Nutta. 14:04, 20 November 2014 (EST)
Busted. Aidan the Gamer 14:07, 20 November 2014 (EST)
...well that's disappointing. On the other hand, MK8 and Hyrule Warriors DLC is driving me broke, so maybe it's a good thing. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe Nutta. 14:09, 20 November 2014 (EST)

I have the pic! here take it! [[1]] The Master HandIt's time. MasterHandSig.jpg

You do know that's fake, right? Not the images of the game, but the list. The link I provided disproves that photo tremendously. Aidan the Gamer 14:16, 20 November 2014 (EST)
This is a) quite old (part of the ESRB leak), b) the text doesn't satisfy SW:NEWGAME, and c) the textual part was confirmed to be false information given to that leaker to identify him, if I recall. Miles (talk) 14:17, 20 November 2014 (EST)

Sharing[edit]

Should we mention the fact that the ability to share custom stages, screenshots, etc. is also planned? I'm not really sure how to word it in the article. Zm123bro (talk) 12:31, 21 November 2014 (EST)

I'd like to see where you heard this. Aidan the Gamer 13:15, 21 November 2014 (EST)
It was fact 51 in the 50-fact Extravaganza. (If you might remember there were actually 54 facts) Zm123bro (talk) 13:18, 21 November 2014 (EST)
Huh...don't remember that...nevertheless, I'll take your word for it. As for the wording...I dunno about that one. Aidan the Gamer 13:20, 21 November 2014 (EST)
Yes, it was mentioned. I don't know where to put this though. Maybe a section labelled "other"? Or maybe it would just be included as part of the updates that add them... ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe Nutta. 18:05, 22 November 2014 (EST)

Smash Ballot[edit]

Should we mention the Smash Ballot somewhere on this page? I feel it belongs here, probably near the bottom. Zm123bro (talk) 02:21, 17 April 2015 (EDT)

Already linked at the bottom of the page; not sure how else one would want to include it. Miles (talk) 02:31, 17 April 2015 (EDT)
All of the ballots except for the American ones (American English, Canadian French, and Mexican Spanish) have fields for a nickname and age, I don't know if thats worth noting anywhere. FirstaLasto

K.K. Slider Outfit/Stand-alone costumes[edit]

This section of the page is all sorts of crazy, what we need to do is either get rid of the stand-alone section and put K.K. and future stand alones in their own sections, or have subsections in the stand-alone section Zm123bro (talk) 21:04, 31 May 2015 (EDT)

It depends on whether there are future stand-alone costumes. We don't know if there will be. Miles (talk) 21:07, 31 May 2015 (EDT)
Well until we know, we should just refer to it as just K.K. rather than general stand-alones Zm123bro (talk) 21:09, 31 May 2015 (EDT)
I mean, does it really matter? There's a 100% overlap until we hear about anything else. Miles (talk) 21:10, 31 May 2015 (EDT)

Suzaku Castle[edit]

It's still listed as "Ryu's stage" even though we have a name for it. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe Nutta. 21:32, 13 June 2015 (EDT)

Pricing Information in Taiwan Region[edit]

Since the 3DS version had recently been released in Taiwan, should we add DLC pricing information in Taiwan as well? An official price information can be found here (due to local regulations, the currency was written as "points" with an exchange rate of 1:1 to NTD). Note: as Wii U was not officially launched in Taiwan, the option to purchase Wii U or both versions were not available. Rabby250 (talk) 11:38, 31 July 2015 (EDT)

Rebate of Purchasing Wave 2 Collection in Japan[edit]

Consumers who purchased Wave 2 Collection (Either or Both versions) in Japan before June 30th will receive a serial in their eShop purchase records which could be used to redeem ¥200 worth of Nintendo Points. Should we note this in the pricing list as well? Rabby250 (talk) 11:38, 31 July 2015 (EDT)

Character Pack #1[edit]

The bundle of all currently released DLC Characters is, on the 3DS version at least, known as Character Pack #1. This is proof that there will be more, and I feel that the character bundle pricing should be mentioned.

Boss Battles Leak?[edit]

Is this true? That's what people have been saying. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cherrim98 (talkcontribs) 20:49 30 August 2015 (EDT)

Please sign your comments with four ~s. To answer your question, SW:NEWGAME states that we can't take it as fact unless a video leaks. I really hope it is true, but we can't be sure (and I don't think it is). Nyargleblargle (Talk) 21:05, 30 August 2015 (EDT)
Could someone link me to this leak? ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe Nutta. 21:20, 30 August 2015 (EDT)
Here you go. Nyargleblargle (Talk) 21:49, 30 August 2015 (EDT)
If the green arrow is supposed to represent DLC characters, then why would Mewtwo, Lucas, Roy, and Ryu still be on the character selection screen? [2] Aidanzapunksignature.pngAidan, Master of Speed and AuraAidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNG 21:51, 30 August 2015 (EDT)
The green arrow is the boss characters, I'm assuming this is supposed to imply that Master Hand and Crazy Hand (and probably Ridley/YD/MF) are playable. So yeah, probably fake. Still, let's just watch and see what happens. Is it widespread enough to get to List of rumors? ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe Nutta. 22:05, 30 August 2015 (EDT)
In context, there's a special boss battles mode, including a VS. variant. But it's not exactly exploding right now (not on the r/smashbros front page, at least), so it probably isn't notable enough. Nyargleblargle (Talk) 22:08, 30 August 2015 (EDT)

(Reset indent) Might be just me, but I find the fact that it just says "Boss" instead of "Boss Battles" or something quite interesting. Aidanzapunksignature.pngAidan, Master of Speed and AuraAidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNG 22:23, 30 August 2015 (EDT)
It's probably because the text doesn't fix? Cherrim98Cherrim Box Sprite.pngTalk 10:18, 31 August 2015 (EDT) Also, notice that "practice" is spelled "practise." But then again, that's how it is spelled in the EU Version. Cherrim98Cherrim Box Sprite.pngTalk 10:19, 31 August 2015 (EDT)

Is it notable...[edit]

...that the Super Mario Maker stage has its picture named as stage_5.jpg, even though there are only four listed (and Dream Land, Hyrule Castle, and Peach's Castle are stage_1, stage_2, and stage_3, respectively)? Idk where it would go but it seems weird. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe Nutta. 22:30, 15 September 2015 (EDT)

In my opinion, I honestly wouldn't put it there. I find it interesting myself, but it could be on the verge of being taken as speculation. Aidanzapunksignature.pngAidan, Master of Speed and AuraAidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNG 22:33, 15 September 2015 (EDT)
Yep. It's fairly plausible speculation, but speculation nonetheless. We can afford to wait for something more concrete. Miles (talk) 22:51, 15 September 2015 (EDT)
I'd guess you guys forgot about Ryu's stage...Cedrickterrick (talk) 05:34, 16 September 2015 (EDT)
Hahahahaha. Oh, the joys of speculation. Smashedpotatoes (talk) 05:38, 16 September 2015 (EDT)
Suzaku Castle doesn't have a picture on the site, and if you try to go to [3] it just redirects you to the home page. I suppose it's possible that they named the Suzaku Castle image that and just never uploaded it, but it seems strange. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe Nutta. 08:41, 16 September 2015 (EDT)

$2 USD[edit]

This is really redundant. Why not just $2 or 2 USD? – Smiddle 06:49, 17 September 2015 (EDT)

When discussing international pricing, it's sort of required for clarity. 2 USD could be mistook for 2 cents, $2 could be Zimbabwean Dollars, etc. It's to be 100% clear, and to be consistent across the board. (" 'Tis Better to err on the side of caution") ScoreCounter 07:11, 17 September 2015 (EDT)
Plus, Australia uses the same sign as US, so there's that as well. (Also, how can USD be mistaken for cents?) Aidanzapunksignature.pngAidan, Master of Speed and AuraAidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNG 08:48, 17 September 2015 (EDT)
Isn't "USD" "US Dollar"? As in, not cents? I feel like leaving out the dollar sign and just using "USD" makes it pretty clear. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe Nutta. 10:02, 17 September 2015 (EDT)
USD means "US dollar", not "US cents". – Smiddle 10:34, 17 September 2015 (EDT)
Speaking from my own experience at least, most people aren't used to reading prices with these currency codes in place of the usual symbols. We have been using both to make sure it's easily comprehensible but also precise. A little redundancy is acceptable in this context, I feel. Miles (talk) 10:28, 17 September 2015 (EDT)
I'm with Miles. Aidanzapunksignature.pngAidan, Master of Speed and AuraAidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNG 10:31, 17 September 2015 (EDT)
In that case, shouldn't the country indicated next to it make it extremely clear which currency it is?
Either way, what's the point of having the currency codes if we expect the reader not to know them? – Smiddle 10:34, 17 September 2015 (EDT)
Context clues? Idk Aidanzapunksignature.pngAidan, Master of Speed and AuraAidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNG 10:37, 17 September 2015 (EDT)
How else do you propose to make a price listing that is a) concise, b) easily understood, and c) unambiguous about different currencies with the same symbol? Miles (talk) 10:44, 17 September 2015 (EDT)
Either of currency codes only and currency symbols with flags fit all criteria. – Smiddle 11:52, 17 September 2015 (EDT)
In reference to the above, I know some gigantic idiots who would think 2 USD is 2 cents. It's happened. ScoreCounter 11:51, 17 September 2015 (EDT)

(Reset indent) ...any idiot can figure out USD = US Dollar. Aidanzapunksignature.pngAidan, Master of Speed and AuraAidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNG 11:58, 17 September 2015 (EDT)

I recommend something like $2 United States. Would this work? DekZek Dekzeksig.png 12:01, 17 September 2015 (EDT)
Wait, don't we already have the monetary amounts split in a table by region? Shouldn't it just be assumed that you aren't using Australian currency in North America? ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe Nutta. 12:02, 17 September 2015 (EDT)
Wasn't referring to myself. And tell that to my idiot. Who I'm thankfully not friends with. Anyway, I prefer having both symbol and code there for neatness more than anything. ScoreCounter 12:14, 17 September 2015 (EDT)
I know you weren't referring to yourself, SC. That aside, I'm one who's fine with the way it is. Aidanzapunksignature.pngAidan, Master of Speed and AuraAidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNG 15:10, 17 September 2015 (EDT)
It feels cluttered and unnecessary to me. We don't really need the currency codes, because we already have it sorted by region and (as far as I know) regions tend to only have one type of money (not including dollars and cents, since cents can just be shown as a decimal to dollars). ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe Nutta. 15:26, 17 September 2015 (EDT)

Highlight Reel[edit]

So, I found this yesterday before the patch on Miiverse. Apparently, you can now upload highlight reels to YouTube. Was this always possible, or did they add it in 1.1.1? Nyargleblargle (Talk · Contribs) 17:51, 8 October 2015 (EDT)

The latter; this should be noted. Miles (talk) 17:54, 8 October 2015 (EDT)

Online[edit]

You can also play on DLC stages you haven't purchased in For Fun mode, not just For Glory. --Mariofan5000 (talk) 08:55, 27 October 2015 (EDT)

About the Smash Ballot[edit]

The Smash Ballot link on here no longer works, as the page has been removed. Would it be alright to remove the link, but still mention the ballot? (Alex95 (talk) 16:55, 31 October 2015 (EDT))

amiibo of DLC charas[edit]

Shouldn't it be mentioned here that the amiibo of DLC charas will still work even if you haven't bought the character? Maybe it should also be noted on the amiibo page. This also concerns the unlockable charas. I tried it with my Jigglypuff amiibo on my Smash 3DS when I hadn't unlocked her yet. Cedrickterrick (talk) 06:17, 10 November 2015 (EST)

We don't already have that noted? Serpent SKSig.png King 06:31, 10 November 2015 (EST)
Haven't found something like that. :/ Cedrickterrick (talk) 07:27, 10 November 2015 (EST)
I mean, yeah, go ahead and mention it. Serpent SKSig.png King 07:29, 10 November 2015 (EST)

This still needs updated[edit]

With Mii Fighter costumes and prices for the collections, etc. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by SANTY CLAWS! Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 19:42, 15 December 2015 (EST)

Songs and trophies?[edit]

Should the music and trophies be mentioned separately? I mean, Suzaku Castle, Midgar, and Umbra Clock Tower are despite only being available alongside Ryu, Cloud, and Bayonetta (respectively). So shouldn't the Bayonetta trophies, Fates trophies, Inkling trophy, etc. etc. etc. be included here too besides a passing mention? And maybe not the songs that come with the DLC stages (particularly not the ones on Super Mario Maker and Pirate Ship that are already in the game) but at least Lost In Thoughts All Alone. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by cupid♥. Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 21:42, 7 February 2016 (EST)

Yeah, a added-trophy-list section might work. But not the actual trophy info itself, based on past experiences this is considered bloat. Just link it to the descriptions. RobSir zx 22:30, 7 February 2016 (EST)
I see no reason not to list them. I'd say go ahead and do it if you want. TepigSprite.pngTepig (talk) 23:01, 7 February 2016 (EST)
Kay on it ---Preceding unsigned comment added by cupid♥. Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 11:09, 8 February 2016 (EST)

DLC Amibos[edit]

Somehow my Roy and Lucas Amiibos work eventhough it's not the latest version. Explanation please! AlbumArt-Dixie.png TabuuandMasterCore 21:37, 2 June 2016 (EDT)

Huh? Be more specific. Is it the version before Roy and Lucas were released? Because as long as it's past the version where they were released, they will be able to work since they're not online-related. Disaster Flare Disaster Flare signature image.png (talk) 21:39, 2 June 2016 (EDT)

Version 1.1.5 AlbumArt-Dixie.png TabuuandMasterCore 12:50, 3 June 2016 (EDT)

Then there is nothing weird about it being able to work. Also please use colons (:) before the start of your reply. Disaster Flare Disaster Flare signature image.png (talk) 12:52, 3 June 2016 (EDT)

Split proposal[edit]

I support the split since there is in depth information Pricing and tables for it. Most of it is information in Smash 4 and we can split it into two pages if we go in depth like with Smash 4. George Jones.jpg Corrin Fan Walls Can Fall.jpg 15:22, 20 November 2018 (EST)

Support per Corrin Fan. John John3637881 Signature.png HUAH! 12:04, 23 November 2018 (EST)

Support as stated above. SugarCookie420 (talk) 12:07, 23 November 2018 (EST)

Support I agree. (It mainly just seems like a Smash 4 page right now) Wolff (talk) 13:39, 24 November 2018 (EST)

Sounds good to me! I'll give it a support and that is... GAME! Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 13:42, 24 November 2018 (EST)

What are we splitting? SSB4 and SSBU? Serpent SKSig.png King 14:35, 28 November 2018 (EST)

Yes. The proposal was/is to split the DLC into two pages. Wolff (talk) 19:52, 30 November 2018 (EST)

Support As per Corrin Fan and Wolff. SonicSpeed48ChristmasSig4.pngSonic, the Cheerful SpeedsterChristmasTimeTigger.png 20:44, 30 November 2018 (EST)

Will there still be a main page for DLC? What will it look like when it's split up? SeanWheeler (talk) 20:51, 30 November 2018 (EST)
We could potentially have 3 pages for DLC. A "main" page (the current one?) that briefly describes the DLC in each version, and then two separate ones for all the exact details of it. Wolff (talk) 21:33, 30 November 2018 (EST)

Are we actually going to split the DLC into two pages? (I'm just curious why it hasn't happened yet considering all the support in favor of such) Wolff (talk) 14:22, 3 December 2018 (EST)

Most likely, although I think everyone keeps on forgetting (at least I do). SugarCookie420 (talk) 15:16, 7 December 2018 (EST)

Support Will be easier for users to navigate the page. OldLink5 (talk) 10:58, 9 December 2018 (EST)

Fighters Pass: Separate purchase for physical owners?[edit]

I'm confused, do I need to purchase the digital version bundle ONLY just so I can get the Fighters Pass, or is the pass going to be available separately for people who bought the game physically? (I don't really like buying retail games digitally) 97.88.58.90 01:50, 7 December 2018 (EST)

This probably isn't the best place to ask (as per SW:TALK), but it should be the same as DLC for Smash 4. In other words, you can get the Fighters Pass regardless. SugarCookie420 (talk) 15:22, 7 December 2018 (EST)
The pass is available for separate purchase, no matter how you obtained the game.
SugarCookie, this is a stretch but would in most cases be considered a valid usage of the talk. Black Vulpine of the Furry Nation. Furries make the internets go! :3 17:59, 7 December 2018 (EST)
I fathom so, too. I interpreted it in 2 different ways, so I warned him just in case. SugarCookie420 (talk) 12:00, 8 December 2018 (EST)
