Super Smash Bros Isn't Finished Being Made

Super Smash Bros. Isn't Finished Being Made

With Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS out, creator Masahiro Sakurai's job is only half done. When one fan asked him how it felt to be done with the development on Super Smash Bros, he replied, "I'm not done yet..."

"Game development is very hard." Sakurai went on in his column in Weekly Famitsu. "You cannot get through it without sacrificing everything, including your own private life, and you often get hurt. However, I'm grateful that so many people have been involved, for the games that are completed, and all the people who play the games."

Moving on from the topic of the 3DS version of the game to the upcoming Wii U version, Sakurai addressed questions on the topic. On the subject of compatibility between the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game, Sakurai noted, "If you have the 3DS version of Smash Bros. you will be able to use your 3DS as a controller for the Wii U version."

Sakurai also added that players would be able to share customised fighters and Mii fighters between the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game.

As for differences between the versions of the game, Sakura stated that an announcement -- possibly a Nintendo Direct -- highlighting the exclusive features of the Wii U version that will show the "true potential of Smash Bros." was currently in the works and will be released soon.

The official Japanese Smash Bros. Twitter did release an image for the Wii U version yesterday showing what appears to be an exclusive single-player game mode.

The images shows 2 features, a "Master Side" and a "Crazy Side", but the title of the actual game mode is blurred out. Details on this new mode have not yet been released. The tweet caption says, "[Picture of the Day] What is this mode...!?"

Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS is currently available. Super Smash Bros for Wii U is scheduled for release in the US on November 21, Europe on December 5, and Japan and Australia on December 6.

    Am I the only one who feels like 99.9% of the images representing this game are blatantly misleading when the game actually looks like:

    To me, it looks like one of those shitty like, double dragon handheld games you would have bought in the 90's, dressed up a little.. And with the most successful marketing ever.

    Edit: For the record I do realise there's 2 versions of the game, and that this one is half centric on the WiiU version - it's just something i've been thinking about with all the hype recently.

      Most pictures are of the Wii U version of the game. And considering this article is about the Wii U version I wouldn't expect anything less!

      um, dude, that's the 3DS version, the one above is WiiU... you should probably play this someday, it's pretty neat.

      dude the screen you provided even says 3DS on it. The screens are taken from in-game footage - not sure if you've played it but when you pause you can move the camera around the characters and take pics to your SD card. I imagine the above Samus pic is the same thing just in the WiiU version.

      Thanks for the laugh.

      One of the stupidest comments I've read here. There's a Wii U version of the game, it even talks about both versions in the article.

        Thanks for the comment, after I already added "For the record I do realise there's 2 versions of the game, and that this one is half centric on the WiiU version - it's just something i've been thinking about with all the hype recently."

      I am assuming what you mean is that most of the images provided paint the game in a different light? in which case you have never played a Smash bros game and you just don't get it? or was it just purely based on how pretty on version is over the other?
