Super Smash Bros. U and Super Smash Bros. 3D are both remakes of the original Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 64. As the title suggests, they are both for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. It is technically installment 1 1/2, but overall it is the 6th installment in the Super Smash Bros. series. Atacon Gaming Division collaborated with Nintendo and Sora Ltd. to help transition the original game to the newer generation consoles. Super Smash Bros. U was released on March 13, 2014, and Super Smash Bros. 3D was released a day later.

The sequel, titled Super Smash Bros. Melee 3D, was revealed a few weeks later, with a release date of December 21, 2015.

  • It is unknown if it is a bug, but after unlocks every character in Super Smash Bros. 3D, Congo Jungle is misspelt "KINGO JUNGLE".
    • However, this is most likely an easter egg. "KINGO JUNGLE", if you look closely, is King 'O Jungle, which means King of Jungle. It most likely means you're the king of the game.
  • Rooftop is the only third-party stage without any character, Assist Trophy, or trophy representative.
    • This would be the same case for Hidden Volcano, but 007 has item representation. (the Motion Sensor Bomb)
  • Both games were developed in 5 months.
