Super Smash Bros. Wii and 3DS won't feature cross-platform play

In an interview with Joystiq, director Masahiro Sakurai said cross-play between the two games wouldn't be possible due to both games having completely different stages.

There will be interactivity between the two versions of the game, Sakurai adds, mentioning that customised characters will be able to be sent from the 3DS version to the Wii U version. The customisations weren't specified in detail, only that they wouldn't be alternative costumes.

Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U and Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS will be released in 2014.
