Sakurai Promises Super Smash Bros. 4 on Wii U and 3DS at E3

This topic is locked from further discussion.

#1 Posted by Enforcedspot (2915 posts) -

Infomation:
- announcements like Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS would usually be accompanied by a trailer, but the team wanted to keep gamers patient while waiting for E3
- this is why they put out just a limited announcement
- Sakurai says E3 will come with a much better announcement
- the plan is to show off both the Wii U and 3DS versions at E3

Also worth noting, Sakurai exchanged tweets with Pokemon director Junichi Masada. The pair discussed how they're looking forward to seeing/hearing more about each other's games (Smash Bros. and Pokemon X/Y) at E3.

I want to see the 3DS version, but now that I am getting a Wii U after all, that one is probably the version I will pick.

The Game I believe is said to be just like Playstation All Stars.

So No matter which version you pick, you're going to be playing with the Same game and you'll still be able to play with WiiU players.

I'm not sure, I'm just spouting specualtion at this point.

They implied it's two different games that work in tandem with each other.

Even if that weren't the case, I'd take the Wii U version simply because of the superior controls and greater ease of local multiplayer. It sucks having to have multiple 3DS for local multiplayer.

Basically, yeah. Smash is about local multiplayer, so a console version will always be better. Unless the game allows for local cross platform play, that'd be brilliant.

work in tandem? So that you can actually play online against each other similar to how Playstation all stars work with vita/ps3?

That is why I plan on getting both.

More along the lines of, you can level up characters on the 3DS game with special abilities that you can then use on the Wii U game.

Hope they fix the online, tripping and speed the game up, loved Brawl but thought it was a sidestep to Melee. Oh yea, and bring Mewtwo back :)

I feel ya, man. but we have to move on sometime. Maybe if the game works with the classic controller from the Wii, we'll be able to use one of those adapters to plug them into a Wiimote.

Also, Marth >>>>>> Roy

It's ensured then. Not only did Sakurai promise, but Iwata did as well.

This I agree with, and the online is a joke!

As exclusive as PSASBR or Sly 4. why does it matter?

If the games are different then they would be exclusive. We just have to wait until E3 to know the difference.

But I mean, the Gamecube controller still feels like the only way to play Smash Bros. :( And lolno

They're probably going to keep Marth and replace Ike with Chrom since he's the main character of the newest Fire Emblem.

#24 Posted by nintendoboy16 (27694 posts) -
With Namco involved, I still wonder if they'll at least have ONE guest character from their end. Be it Pacman (Miyamoto loves that character, doesn't he?), Lloyd Irving, or someone from the Soul series (for payback of Link appearing in Soul Calibur II). I know Sakurai said he's taking a step back in how many characters there will be, but...

That's all well and good, but... Roy>All except Pikachu.

I think Marth will be back. I also hope Masked Marth/[spoiler] Lucina [/spoiler] is in it. Don't click the spoiler if you don't want to know the identity of Masked Marth from Awakening.

Eww, we want to avoid clones, don't we? I enjoyed the inclusion of Ike because he could throw some weight around. I think Lyn would be a better character, though unfortunately not very recent.

Also, Pikachu Chaz? you mean that little yellow kicking bag? He loves taking a sheild breaker to the face.

#28 Posted by whiskeystrike (12096 posts) -

As exciting as that sounds for 3DS I'll undoubtedly get the Wii U version...unless enough friends get it on 3DS to warrant the extra purchase.

Oh ma gerd, just thinking of the game nights we will be able to do!

I still think they might have KOS-MOS or Kalas since those are owned by Namco-Bandai but were developed by Monolith Soft which is owned by Nintendo know.

Don't bother with a campaign this time. Subspace Emissary was boring as hell.

Would love to have a Tales character in there... Lloyd I suppose since both of his games released on Nintendo systems.

If only Brawl online was worth playing (or Melee had online to begin with) I'd send your little yellow *** back to Kanto.

Would be kind of dumb, considering Xenosaga was never really on Nintendo consoles. Even Solid Snake makes more sense (despite the Metal Gear series being more well known on PlayStations, while Sonic is more well known on Nintendo systems).

The boss battles were. The stages also looked nice, but I didn't like doing those sidescroll parts fighting off those enemies. Felt so out of place. The co-op also has the camera fixed on only one player, which was a pretty dumb move.

We must play once this game comes out. I'll be getting both versions either way.

Besides, who would crazy enough to buy the portable version over the WiiU one. One of the selling points of the franchise, is the awesome local multiplayer.

KOS-MOS was on Nintendo handhelds. Xenosaga I & II remakes on the DS, Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier, Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier EXCEED, and Project X Zone on the 3DS.

And how many people are aware of those games compared to the likes of the GameCube version of Tales of Symphonia?

I'm hoping Nintendo releases a Smash WiiU Controler, that is in the style of a Gamecube controller.

Unlikely happening, but it would be glorious!

I'd buy all of them, just because I love the Gamecube controller so much.

Yet, Super Smash Bros. Melee came out during the launch window for the GameCube. Sounds to me the SSB series has a rather messed up history in terms of releases.
