I have a 3ds xl and my buddy has a Wii U. We want to play smash together.

Can we online play on different platforms together?

I think the Nintendo website says yes but I cant tell for sure.

Also, for extra credit any major differences between the 2?


Unfortunately no, you cannot play together across platform as the versions do not share stages. You may, however, transfer characters across platform.

See the wiki for details on cross platform differences.

    You can, however, if you are in the same room together, connect your 3DS as a controller to a game on the Wii U. But for online play over a distance, this is correct, there is no way. – Morgan Patch Jan 19 '15 at 21:52
