Sakurai: Here’s Some More Information On Smash Bros Nintendo 3DS And Wii U

Super Smash Bros producer Masahiro Sakurai has put to rest some of the questions asked about Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U in his weekly Famitsu column. Sakurai goes into detail about a number of things including Smash Run and how he decides on the Miiverse picture of the day. Here’s what Sakurai had to say.

Please tell us why Smash Run is set to 5 minutes.

Isn’t 4 minutes too short and 6 minutes too long? Kid Icarus: Uprising’s aerial fights were about 5 minutes, right? In Smash Run, because song use fits perfectly and feels good, I decided to use two songs tracks as a time length.

The approach for music is incredible. Why go to such lengths?

My games always have a sound test. Game music which creates a scene in a short loop and brings back many things, including the situation when it played, is really likeable, right?

Especially in a project like Smash Bros. where it is possible to bring everything together, that chance must be used to the fullest!! The required coordination for rights is tenfold compared to a normal software so that multiplies the efforts.

How many tips there are in total?

The truth is that is that the total can be updated. It is possible to add them without any notification, as this is a game with content that cannot exactly be “completed.” Though, if you add more tips, then there is translation work to be done, and with every country in mind, this is more difficult than it seems at first.

Updating the website with “pic of the day”, in what way you do the updates?

First I decide what theme to show, photographed at the desk, come up with a manuscript, and then I have to ask someone at Nintendo to update. Since I’m usually very busy, when I get the chance, I finish several posts in advance. Also, because of all the translations, I have to have the posts ready 10 days in advance.

Thanks, Ahmad

Sakurai Explains Why They Released The Nintendo 3DS Version Of Smash Bros First And More

Super Smash Bros director Masahiro Sakurai has explained to Famitsu why he decided to release the Nintendo 3DS version of the game first. He stated that the Wii U version is the bigger of the two and has taken more time and therefore more work. Sakurai also explained why some characters received new Final Smashes and some didn’t. Here’s what he had to say in the article.

What was the reason to make the Nintendo 3DS [version of Smash Bros.] before the Wii U [version]?

Compared to the 3DS [version], the Wii U [version] is larger in scale and also has many modes so the production takes time. It is that simple.

There are fighters that got their Final Smashes changed and fighters that didn’t; what is the reason for this?

It differs depending on the case. Lucario['s final smash changed] because Mega Evolution was introduced in the latest installment [of Pokemon]. Pit because Palutena turned into a fighter. Moves, too, were modified due to balancing and elements of the new game were factored in.

Thanks, Ahmad

Amazon Leaks Game Board Mode And Stage Builder For Smash Bros Wii U

It seems as though Amazon has beaten Nintendo to the punch as its revealed that Super Smash Bros Wii U will feature a Game Board mode and Stage Builder mode. The information was listed on the product description and was presumably supposed to be announced by the Kyoto based company first. Here’s the description.

“The multiplayer showdown you know and love is now on the Wii U console! Take on all comers as Mario, Mega Man, Sonic, and more gaming greats. Or tap an amiibo to the Wii U GamePad controller to train it up by battling with or against it. You can even pit your amiibo against a friends’ to see how your training methods stack up. Whether you’re creating stages on the GamePad, competing in challenges crafted by Master Hand and Crazy Hand, or outwitting your opponents in a brand new board game mode, there’s no doubt that the ultimate Smash Bros. game has arrived.”

Sakurai Says Smash Bros Isn’t Finished Yet And Possible Smash Bros Wii U Nintendo Direct Coming

Super Smash Bros creator Masahiro Sakurai has revealed in his weekly column in Famitsu that work on the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros isn’t finished. However, Sakurai may have been talking about the fact that he will still have to continue working on both versions with regards to adding patches to address gameplay balance. Sakurai said that an announcement, or possibly a Nintendo Direct, will be made to showcase the difference between the Nintendo 3DS version of Super Smash Bros and the Wii U version.

“When one fan asked him how it felt to be done with the development on Super Smash Bros., he replied, “I’m not done yet…”

“Game development is very hard.” Sakurai went on in his column in Weekly Famitsu. “You cannot get through it without sacrificing everything, including your own private life, and you often get hurt. However, I’m grateful that so many people have been involved, for the games that are completed, and all the people who play the games.”

“Sakura stated that an announcement – possibly a Nintendo Direct – highlighting the exclusive features of the Wii U version that will show the “true potential of Smash Bros.” was currently in the works and will be released soon.”
