The lights are on
The Wii Fit Trainer and the Animal Crossing Villager fighters from the new Super Smash Bros. were shown in their 3DS forms today.
The image of the duo appeared on the official Super Smash Bros. website as today's daily image. It's still unclear exactly how the Wii U and 3DS versions of the games will interact, which characters will be shared, and if certain characters will only appear in a single version.
Update: It has been stated by Nintendo that the character roster for both the 3DS and Wii U games should be identical, but series director Masahiro Sakurai did tell Kotaku, "We're forced into the situation where we may need to reduce some characters to a certain degree, but we're really working hard in order to include as many characters as possible." Hopefully the two games ultimately have the same character list, but it seems like there's a chance that they may not.

I really want to find out about that Character customization, but I really like those HD visuals. Choosing is so tough.
Can't wait to play this! I need to hurry up and get a 3DS or WiiU! both are going to have to good games but I don't know which system to get first
Atleast they're not making empty promises. They're doing their best to make each game as good as they can possibly make it. You guys did a good job on the last 3 though I hated Brawl personally. Heres to Nintendo, you keep on rocking.
*sigh* I guess I'm getting both versions...
