The internet is in a frenzy right now over the surprise release of some early access codes to the demo of Super Smash Bros for the 3DS. The demo officially launches for everyone next week, but lucky Platinum Members of Club Nintendo have been getting codes to download and play the game today! Lost in the commotion comes the confirmation that players can use their 3DS‘s as controllers when playing the game on Wii U.
The above image was tweeted by Kyle McClain followed by text which read, “The text on the top screen says ‘connect your 3DS with your Wii U to exchange customized characters, and you can use it as a controller.” Many speculated this a potential control option when playing the game, but this appears to be the first official confirmation of this theory.
This is awesome news for the folks looking to run a train on the 3DS version of the game before it comes to Wii U sometime this holiday season. Getting familiar with a controller can make all the difference when it comes to dominating in a fighting game and for those not interested in digging out the ol’ Gamecube controllers, it’s a more convenient option as well.
