For me, I would rather not have DLC but if it's a whole new game changer or it improves the 3DS - Wii U interaction I would buy it no matter what price.

Smash bros comes once a generation.

Cool, Nintendo hasn't pissed me off with DLC yet, so I'll gladly buy it from them.

If they are creating DLC for characters that don't exist until after the game was released, great.

One of the few games I'd like DLC for.

DLC would let me play as my favorite Nintendo characters, characters I don't think will get in otherwise. So long as it's not overpriced, used in moderation, and it doesn't become "pay-to-win", I'd be fine with it. Plus, if a new, really good game comes out in, say, 2015, they could include a character and stage from the game that we'd otherwise have to wait until SSB5 for.

On the other hand, if the game launches with, say, 20 characters, and another 10 are disk-locked content, and the only default stages are Battlefield and Final Destination, and certain modes become pay-to-play, I'd be really, really pissed.

I'd rather not have paid DLC but Nintendo is one of the very few companies I would trust to make DLC worth my money without gimping the base game.

I would probably pay for a good character pack or a good level pack.

That's not something I ever say fyi. I haven't bought a single piece of DLC unless it was on a steam sale for 20 cents.

As always, I'm fine with DLC as long as it was actually made after the game came out, and not deliberately left out of the game to give them a reason to make paid DLC.

Day One DLC is a no no.

Depends. I'd see no issue with free DLC as long as character ones aren't "limited time only".

As far as paid DLC, I personally don't believe that competitive genres like fighters should hold ANY characters behind a pay wall. Have everyone available now, or make them unlockable through personal effort. BUT, if you can unlock them without having to pay, and allow folks to pay to unlock everything immediately, I don't see an outright issue with that.

The only paid DLC I'd be down for is alternative costumes/stages/music because that doesn't directly interfere with the mechanics/metagame.

I'll hate it if they include DLC characters and/or levels. Smash Bros. was always a game where you had to unlock everything, from music, to characters, to levels, and trophies, and that made the game even more fun. It would dearly take away from the experience if you had to pay for stuff. However, Nintendo doesn't sell out as often as other companies, so I'm hopeful that they'll give us a complete game.

I hope so. I don't care if its paid DLC, just give us new characters and stages. I'd gladly pay $5 for a new character or for stage packs.
