Nintendo Wii U: There’s Been ‘No Progress’ On Smash Bros For Wii U And Nintendo 3DS

Masahiro Sakurai, president of Sora and chief creative force behind Smash Bros, has Tweeted that he won’t start working on the next installment of the Smash Bros franchise until he has finished working on Kid Icarus Uprising.

“I’m currently concentrating on one title, Kid Icarus. Until this wraps up, Smash Bros. will not progress. Of course, characters have not been decided at all.”

      1. i see… I’m pretty sure that’s her buttcrack you can see there too…
        and what’s with the blood spattered all over her umbrella and body?
        What kind of website are you running here again, sickr?

    1. Missed the announcement last week that it was delayed? Said it was going to take “more time complete” so it was pushed to 2012, so in turn pushing Smash Brothers Wii U/3DS into 2015, if not later.

    1. i think they can do smash bros 3ds rather quickly cuz they have a lot of source material to start with. But wiiu will take a long time. It has gotta be at least 2 years away.

      1. Yeah, but most likely they’ll have the two versions connect to each other. So they’ll probably be released at the same time.

      2. Source material? They’re not gonna be remaking Brawl. I assume the 3DS version is going to be worked on only after they’ve got the Wii U version concrete.

    1. Once again you’re being a total idiot. Sakurai was planning on making a 3DS version, and then Iwata convinced him to make a Wii U version. In other words, if he’s ever going to cancel one of the projects, it’s going to be the Wii U one. And no, development won’t go much faster, if at all. Sakurai will just get a larger team when making both, and he’ll scale down that team if he’s only making one. No need for more development costs. Logic helps when writing comments you know.

      Sorry I repeated what I said earlier, but apparently this moron didn’t get the memo.

      1. Iwata is the biggest asshole at nintendo to Sakurai, he takes something that sakurai says and expands it HUGELY, like when he said that he wanted to make SSBB he was like “its gonna be a short project im not gonna put anything huge in it” and Iwata was like “k” and at E3 Iwata was like “its gonna have wifi multiplayer o:” and Sakurai was like “FSLFeSFES” and then this year Sakurai was like “im gonna make a SSB game its gonna take forever so dont announce it k? and Iwatwa was l “k” and at E3 he was like “so yeah a Wii U and 3DS Super Smash Bros game is coming out o:” and Iwata litterly went “FUCK YOU WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!”

        1. sorry sorry Sakurai went “FUCK YOU WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT” o-o i couldnt see what i was typing when i typed that cause the screen lagged up.

  1. The only new character I ask for is Megaman, with the option to play it modern and classic (8-bit). Oh man I can’t wait for Skyward Sword! Oh yeah before I forget, if you’re a mau5 fan don’t forget to vote for him at djmag top 100! :)

    1. O think simon belmot should be added. He could have glyphs and use his whipping abilities from super castlevania IV. And its not like that would be a hard cross over, i mean you did get freakin sonic in brawl. i also think that megaman would be a cool edition. Pety pirahna too.

        1. Dead or Alive Dimensions is pretty fun. It has a ton of figure-like things you can unlock and take pictures of. Actually, it has the best 3D I’ve seen so far though it’s not really required. The combat is also fast and fun, and you can link hits to do combos. In the mean time, you could play Kirby’s Mass Attack. There is a new Animal Crossing coming soon, Samurai Warriors Chronicles is a great game with a lot of strategy to it. Some people were upset about The Mercenaries 3D, but it’s actually pretty addictive. You could try to find a price drop somewhere for that. I’d recommend others, but you said you didn’t want ports like Shin Megami. Ace Combat may be good.

      1. Super Mario 3D Land and Mariokart 7. OOT didn’t take long, and I passed on Starfox.

        But I’m deeply enthralled in Radiant Historia after seeing rave reviews in previous thread comments, reviews on amazon/gamestop and a recommendation from my cousin. This should keep me very busy until those 2 titles arrive.

    1. As mentioned earlier, Dead or Alive Dimensions is a AAA fighting game that isn’t a port (like SSFIV). Ghost Recon is a great strategy game, and Pilotwings Resort offered over 25 hours of gameplay for those who tried to get Perfect’s on all the levels.

      Sure not the longest list (by far) but all great games I’m guessing you missed or didn’t invest enough time into.

  2. Well, at least this pretty much outright says they haven’t started on it, nor have they even decided characters for it. It’ll take a while, and it doesn’t seem it’ll be a game that’s headed to launch on the day the Wii U will launch, which could hurt it’s sales in my opinion. Either way though, I am all up for them taking their time as long as it turns out good. I’d rather not have a rushed Super Smash Bros. game.

  3. This new generation of Smash Bros could not have better timing. Just like Brawl included Olimar, and Nintendogs: This new one will include even more. Like maybe a Professor Layton assist trophy and Rhythm Heaven stage. And with Skyward Sword coming soon, we may get that RESPECTIVE Link, akin to how Brawl got TP Link. Timing could not be better.

    1. It was a name drop technique. Obviously it would come, but it was just to generate buzz on the Wii U. Didn’t work to well..

  4. :( Not even characters? They could of at least called sega and capcom about shadow and megaman… And maybe suda5 for travis touchdown… And square enix for geno…

      1. They put in sonic and if hes there again, since hes so similar to shadow why not make shadow as a skin for sonic. Also knuckles would be pretty cool to have.

  5. I thought that was Kirby getting killed… it was Peach’s umbrella.

    Anyways, it’s not a surprise. I wasn’t expecting Smash Bros to be a launch title or anything. I hope they take it easy with the adventure mode. It was way too long and repetitive and the cutscenes were too long, which make development even longer. I wish they would just concentrate on the main aspects of the game with little emphasis on story. Kid Icarus is one thing, but Smash Bros is a rather complex game to make and to balance out.

    Btw, when the hell are you going to finish Kid Icarus? It’s taken way to long. Sure I want to play a great game, but this is going overboard. This is the main reason the 3DS was not doing well; it didn’t have a high profile Nintendo game. You need those games in order to secure sales!

    1. I thought Adventure mode was great. The cutscenes were awesome, the story was fairly good, and I didn’t think it was repetitive at all. But that doesn’t mean it’s perfect. But it was really good. I think they should just make the smash bros game for Wii U so it would go faster. I mean who else would have a 3DS and a Wii U with the same game with maybe a little bit of different characters.

    2. Actually, the adventure mode for brawl wasnt that great. Ues it was an upgrade from melee’s in some aspects like going through doors to expand the levels, character unlocks could be achived through it, and character upgrades, but that was about it. It just didnt seem like nintendo do their best. I think you should be able to level up characters in story mode like an rpg, and stickers would be a boost the you could buy using the coins, giving coins a valuble use for once. Have you ever actualy run out of those things when you werent playing coin launcher because you had nothing better to do? They would be actually NEEDED.
      Ok, multyplayer for story mode was actually not to bad, other than two tiny problems. 1: when you choose characters to play as, you ofter end up as the character your friend picked. To stop this from happening, simply make it so that player one chooses two characters and thats it. Player two gets to choose his own characters. Problem 2: completely disregarding my earlier statement about the whole leveling up thing, when you used a sticker on a character, no matter how much your friend wanted, thats what it was. Its not the fact that player 2 doesnt get to pick, its the fact that player 1 and player 2 have to have the same thing. Why couldnt we just had it so that each player could have a aeperate list

        1. (my phone makes my typing suck :’| )
          I think that if we could chose a type of map when in level editor. Either fighting, or adventure. Fighting would jist be the same, but adventure would be like melee’s. You could put enimies, certain areas that once you enter you must do a fight to continue, it would be bigger than just 1 screen, and its more easily programed than making it so we can make adventure levels in brawl. It would be a big success. Also, why cant i turn objects upside down in level editor and only left and right. Its a let down.

    1. Well, I’ve been emailing Nintendo every week since the announcement about SSB 4 came out, asking for any ways whatsoever to contact Sakurai. And the response has always been no, due to “legal and privacy” issues.

  7. Hmm, I don’t think they should have announced it at E3…
    It added to the hype with announcements of games and made them look even better, but when it isn’t going to be released for a long time, it just makes people frustrated because they have to wait…

  8. Why are people want Megaman on this game he is from capcom and he sucks and after the cancelation of megaman legends 3 there is a 100% chance that he is not going to i this game and i know what your saying “what about snake and sonic.” sonic was there because nintendo owed sega for having mario in Mario and Sonic ATOG and and i hope he is in the new one maybe through in Tails. Snake was there because Hideo Kojima loves the ssb series and he bitched at Nintendo to have snake in there since ssbm, Nintendo finally said yes and put him in ssbb and what does nintendo get in return nothing just a big kick to the dick by releasing mgs guns of the patriots only on the ps3 witch is why i hate snake for being there and they try to seem loyal to nintendo by putting mario toys in shitty remakes of mgs games that were one PS fuck you capcom and fuck you konami.

    1. you are stupid kojima stated that he didnt make guns of the patriots for the Wii because it doesnt have HD graphics if the wii had HD graphics then guns of the patriots would have been released for it

    1. Whats with everyone saying that they can wait? Its f#&$ing super smash brothers not halo! Come on!

  11. Take all the time you need Sakurai. The quality of your games is worth the wait.
