Nintendo Isn’t Even Working on Smash Bros. for Wii U
I’m starting to see how new console announcements work for Nintendo: 1) announce console, 2) say you’re going to make a new version of every major first-party franchise even if you won’t actually start working on it for a year or two. If you promise Nintendo fans that they will be be able to play the same old s–t on a new console, well, they have to buy it.
So, yeah, the guy who knows about these things, Smash Bros. creative lead Masahiro Sakurai, says in a Famitsu column that, even though Iwata-san announced them at E3, they haven’t started working on new Smash Bros. for either Wii U or 3DS because the team is working on Kid Icarus 3D, and that it’ll be several years before anybody will get to play them. Ha!
In the meantime, Smash Bros. fans, there are literally dozens of other games you could be playing. You should try them out.
