People who purchase and register both versions of the game with Club Nintendo, however, will still be able to get Mewtwo for free, in addition to the free game soundtrack CDs.
The company hinted at the possibility of Mewtwo becoming paid content in the rules and restriction at the bottom of the Super Smash Bros. soundtrack CD and DLC offer page.
No price has been set for Mewtwo, but it will become available for download in Spring 2015. Aside from this, Nintendo has no other plans for paid DLC for Super Smash Bros.

So the familiar character costume Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma hinted would be coming to Hyrule Warriors turns out to be the Postman. He did say it may make you say “Wow!” and it seems like he’s right.
Never thought we’d see the day Link donned some plum smugglers.
Famitsu.com broke down all the content in the upcoming Twilight Princess DLC pack and uploaded pictures of all the new stuff, including the new playable character.
In addition to the new character and Postman Link, Zelda will get a new costume that turns her into Ordon Village’s Ilia, along with a new weapon: the Dominion Rod. Lastly, there will be a new Adventure Mode map, giving you more missions to wade through.
The Twilight Princess pack comes out on November 27 for $7.99.
The pokémon Mewtwo is coming to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS this spring as free DLC to anyone who purchases both games.
In an interview with IGN, Smash Bros. series creator Masahiro Sakurai says the reason Mewtwo won’t be paid content is because it’s meant to be an “experiment meant to act as a foothold in content distribution; thus it’s simply meant as part of the service we’re providing to gamers.”
In a separate interview with VideoGamer.com, Sakurai expressed his concerns over releasing DLC for Smash.
“I understand that DLC could add a lot to the appeal of Smash Bros.,” Sakurai said, “and I appreciate that a major part of the excitement for these games come from which characters will appear in the roster, so I think fans could really enjoy DLC that could keep this excitement going. However, I think there might be criticism that we are cutting up content to sell characters one by one, or that we are adding things later that should have been there from the start.”
Additionally, he added that there are currently no plans for paid content for the game.
“…what I can say now about paid DLC is that we aren’t working on anything at the moment,” Sakurai said. “We’ve put all our efforts into making the actual game. Creating DLC would involve large additional costs and require the involvement of a lot of people. I can’t yet give you an answer about whether the price would justify the costs and criticisms mentioned above.”
Zelda series producer and Hyrule Warriors supervisor Eiji Aonuma took to Miiverse to highlight some of the new things coming in next week’s Twilight Princess DLC pack for Hyrule Warriors.
Headlining the pack is a new playable character: (Spoilers if you haven’t beaten Twilight Princess) Twili Midna, who fights using the (more spoilers) Mirror of Twilight. There’s also a picture (again, spoilers) of them in battle.
Additionally, the DLC pack will include a new weapon, another adventure map and two costumes. Aonuma hinted that one of the costumes will allow you to dress up Link as a “certain familiar character from the Zelda series.”
You can get the Twilight Princess pack on November 27 for $7.99, or you can get all four DLC packs the season pass for $20.
