Ahead of tonight's Nintendo Direct focused on the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game, some news has started to leak, and not all of it is good.

Apparently, the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. 4, which was slated to originally release day and date with the Wii U version, has now been delayed indefinitely, while Nintendo puts all its resources to ensure that Smash 4 on Wii U releases before this year ends.

We'll have more news for you later today once the Smash Direct airs, so stay tuned.

Kotaku

What the fuck? No!!!!

Vita > 3DS. 3DS is doomed. The unsinkable ship is sinking.

Does anyone really care?

No. It's either put the thing out on a dying handheld or a dying console.

When did they announce a Vita version of Smash Bros. 4?

Please tell me this isn't some late April Fools joke.

Lets act like a rumor is fact, that sounds like a good way to get comments!

#11 Posted by Capitan_Kid (6509 posts) -

We shall see

That seems like bullshit since Sakurai has shown updates of the 3DS version super recently. It seems like such a waste to cancel it. Then again it was going to cannibalize the WiiU version

You so funnah, Char.

I wouldnt necessarily be surprised though. It coming for the 3DS is just another reason to not get a Wii U.

#13 Posted by Joedgabe (5090 posts) -

Attempt to drive up sales of the Wii U. Smart move.. a tempting reason to get the Wii U.. but honestly i'll definitely wait later years when the Wii U drops in price to get SSB. Sad, i would have bought it day one now i wont.

#14 Posted by PurpleMan5000 (6622 posts) -

I was never interested in the 3DS version anyway, but this is bad news for those who are, if it's true. If it is true, then hopefully the game is just being pushed back into 2015.

#15 Posted by Sword-Demon (6872 posts) -

Disappointing, but a smart move overall.

Making ssb exclusive will help the Wii U much more than releasing a nearly identical version on a more popular system.

People who want ssb now have no choice but to get a Wii U.

When did they announce a Vita version of Smash Bros. 4?

After Nintendo going 3rd party.

ITT: A bunch of fools who don't see enough of charizard's terrible threads somehow.

Most devs stopped caring for 3ds, they got their sales and now are focusing on Vita, without gimping their games to run on 3ds hardware. Even MH4-localisation was delayed to fuck.

Can we have all Smash Bros. threads into one thread? And is this news confirmed by Nintendo?

#22 Posted by santoron (7466 posts) -

Delayed =\= cancelled. Come on now Char, IGN trolls less for hits.

If true sounds like they're fighting a slipping schedule, and made an adjustment that gives them their best shot to get a system selling type franchise onto their flagging console for the holidays. Smart move.

Smash brothers 3DS will be along eventually though. Nintendo ain't dumb.

#23 Edited by Kaze_no_Mirai (10893 posts) -

@Locutus_Picard: MH4U was not delayed. As far as I know it's not even had a release date, I don't even think 4U is out in Japan yet. So in no way delayed. Also what focus from devs are you talking about for Vita? Some good games are coming out for both handhelds but they're both pretty barren this year.

#24 Posted by silversix_ (13661 posts) -

Good news from Nintendo. Waiting for X to be delayed for next Nintendo console for 2018

Its fake.. just trollin' before the Direct.

#26 Posted by DJ-Lafleur (34085 posts) -

I was going to get the Wii U version first anyways so this wouldn't really be a big deal for me. It would suck for those who were expecting to get the 3DS version though if this is true. Seems hard to believe though after all the screenshots Sakurai showed for the 3DS version recently.

#27 Edited by charizard1605 (54494 posts) -

This thread should be a case study.

Yea, least it can be an exclusive now, sheep should be happy.

@Heil68: I'm not going to argue the "exclusive" card here, but they're both somewhat different. It's not a direct port/mutiplat. As far as I know each game has different stages. I know there are other differences but I can't remember right now. I'd rather have it available on both platforms than play that ridiculous "exclusives" game.

#31 Posted by DJ-Lafleur (34085 posts) -

I have been lied to. I have been deceived...

Shitty troll thread.

#33 Edited by Xaero_Gravity (8681 posts) -

Do you people even click links? Especially when it comes to Charizard. He's the new ShadowMoses when it comes to being a pathological liar.

#34 Posted by Gue1 (9172 posts) -

now the Wii U version doesn't have to be gimped. This is good news....

LOL nice. Wouldn't it make sense to get the game on your platform with the larger install base? This makes no sense. As a 3DS owner it sucks.

So hyped for the 3DS version.

Agreed. Also Nintendo has a chance to make more off of the 3DS version. "Exclusive" isn't defined the way it is in SW in the business world. Believing they are wrong isn't stopping them.

if they are different games with different stages then what's the point of releasing both at the same time? I thought they were gonna pull off a Sony Battle Royale here with cross online play and stuff. I mean, it'd be more logical to make one first and then the other if it's like you say but if not then it makes no sense.

Ah, Charizard, you sly dog, you.

Of course, I didn't even have to click on the link to know this was BS. Isn't Kotaku one of the Web sites people around here don't trust?

Well, Chaz fooled all the cows.

Didn't you read the link? Dark Souls II for the 3DS has been cancelled.

The link doesn't even have to do with Smash Bros.

Yeah, I saw that too shortly after. It's a Dark Souls article, lol.
