The DLC Shop is open for SSB on the 3DS, and I now confirm that you can make a basic purchase to have the DLC you download on both the 3DS and WiiU. This new SSB update also confirms MORE DLC for SSB is on the way, and more DLC for MK8 could also be on the way, this is just a prediction but I hope to see more (FREE) DLC for Mario Kart 8 within the next year, they could seriously keep these games brand new for years with DLC. The Update makes the Notifications menu a DLC shop entrance as well, and on the screen it shows the option to even get DLC from codes (which you normally get from Club Nintendo for coins), so this means codes may be available with the new rewards service Nintendo plans to make after Club Nintendo is gone (Of course they will be, all prizes are virtual now). There are no fighters available in the DLC shop right now, but I have a feeling that'll change once the SSB Ballot has a few winners. I would personally like Nintendo to add a Mario Mii fighter uniform and the Pixel version of Mario as a fighter for download. I don't really get the whole monkey suit.
