Default 3DS Smash Bros. VS Wii U Smash Bros

Since there's two versions of the latest Smash Bros. I been wanting to go for the 3DS one and unlock or DLC characters and add in more in the roster, what's the difference in the two released versions?

3DS is more of a handheld version of it while the WiiU's is more console based, I don't know which one to start!

P.S I don't have a Wii U yet sadly.

Wii U version obviously has the benefit of being on an HD console and not a weaker handheld. Besides that it offers 8-player smash, more stages, an admittedly kinda lame stage builder, event matches and Gamecube controls. It's the version I'd recommend if you do a lot of local and social multiplayer.

3DS has Smash Run and a better classic mode, plus the portability, so if you're a fan of single player in Smash games it has way better modes to explore. Its stages are different from the Wii U version but which you prefer is pretty subjective and I mostly play on Omega Mode.

I remember the online being fine and active in both versions at launch but I don't really play much so I'm not the best person to comment on that.

Wii U is the better version but with the nx coming out, its best to wait for a price drop.
