Smash Ballot Translation Guide


Okay, so I got a ton of requests to do this. So here it is.

The Japanese Smash DLC Ballot goes into a lot more depth than the American one. Because of this, there has been a lot of confusion and misinformation going around. This blog post will serve as a reference to what the site actually says. Direct Link to the Japanese Smash Ballot. Text copied below for convenience.
