3DS Is a Controller Option for Super Smash Bros Wii U

smashbros3dsThe Wii U doesn’t typically support remote play with the 3DS like the PlayStation 4 does with its handheld cousin the PlayStation Vita, but Smash-ing times call for Smash-ing measures.

After spending some time with a preview build, GameSpot reports that the Nintendo 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. features a menu that claims the device will work as a controller when playing the Wii U version of the game. If the menu is accurate and remains in the final version of Smash, it also looks like you’ll be able to transfer your characters’ progress from the 3DS to Wii U.

Lest you think people are reading too much into things, the menu reportedly reads: “Connect to a Wii U – You can exchange custom fighters or use your Nintendo 3DS as a Wii U controller.” Not a whole lot of room for misinterpretation there, but we’ll find out for sure when Super Smash Bros. comes to 3DS on October 3.
