Super Smash Bros creator Masahiro Sakurai has explained in his weekly Famitsu column why the Ice Climbers weren’t included in Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Sakurai says that he had them running on the Wii U version of the game, but due to technical limitations he cut them from both versions. He also mentioned that Ice Climbers as a franchise just isn’t as popular as the company hoped. Sakurai also mentioned that the delay between the two versions of Super Smash Bros was simply due to debugging.

Due to a bug being discovered in the Mario & Luigi Miiverse community, Nintendo has now disabled users from posting images in that specific section of the social network. The glitch that was discovered yesterday allowed anyone to post any image in that particular Miiverse community leading to some adult images being posted by savvy users. Here’s what Nintendo had to say.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the screenshot feature has been disabled in this community. We are looking into the cause of the problem. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Super Smash Bros producer Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed that he will continue posting Super Smash Bros pic of the day posts on Nintendo 3DS and Wii U social network, Miiverse. Sakura says that even though the game is already out in Japan he won’t post any spoilers for those that have so far successfully avoided them.
Announcement: Originally, the pic of the day was only supposed to continue for about two months, but I’ve ended up posting pictures until even today. The 3DS version has already been released in Japan, so I would like to talk about how future posts will be handled. First, I will not talk about hidden features until the game is released overseas. On the other hand, I definitely will talk about them after the game is released abroad. In addition, I am planning to continue making posts at least until the Wii U version is released. I haven’t decided if I’ll go by the Japanese version release or the release of versions abroad, but the point is that I’ll continue posting for a little bit longer. Pic of the day won’t focus on introducing new information anymore in the near future, but I hope to entertain you with interesting and funny photos like I originally intended to. Thanks.
Nintendo Japan has announced that Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 3DS has reached one million sales in Japan during the first two days of the game going on sale. These figures include digital and physical sales but it’s not readily apparent if the total figures are sold to consumers or shipped. Still, it’s very impressive.
Thanks to those who sent this in.
