    I don't understand why Nintendo didn't make 3DS controller make harder than Wii U does. I mean SSBWU is huge show off for use any kind of controller that does support. I know you will say "Hey why not buy Wii U and buy SSB Wii U?" I wish that will be simple but bills come first. I have no plan to get Wii U and SSBWU same time. I have tax income but that won't be that simple because I didn't work for a year. I start work since March. Maybe next year I might get it. Does SSB 3DS have hack for controller like wireless controller support?

    It does have a hack, but no wireless one. Remember the 3DS must have the technology for a specified controller and it doesn't have anything like bluetooth.

    You can physically mod your 3DS to wire up a controller adapter, but it's rather involved and the board is $25-ish.

    I seem to remember something about people being able to use custom built controls via iR for games that support CPP. Still, that would be a bit of a task.

    The reason the 3DS doesn't have controller support is, well, the screen is tiny and it already has buttons built in. If you used a separate controller, you'd have a screen that was so small you could hardly see anything without some sort of device to hold it in front of your face. It's not even possible without DIY soldering a controller to the 3DS.
