The next entry to the Super Smash Bros. franchise is in development. During a recent interview with Nintendo Power, Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai has announced that the next game in the series is in “the first step of the development process.”
The next Super Smash Bros., which was first revealed last year, is Sakurai’s first project that was announced before being in development - this means that “players will be forced to wait even longer than they expect to.” The next Super Smash Bros. game will be for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
“We’ve just taken what you could call the first step of the process. This is the first time I’ve ever had my next project announced before it’s even entered development, and because of that, I fear that players will be forced to wait even longer than they expect to. Please be patient.”
