During a recent interview with NowGamer, Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada was asked whether we will see Tekken characters in the next Super Smash Bros. games. Harada replied by saying that, recently, this question is one of the most frequent questions Namco is asked. Harada thinks that fans of Nintendo’s brawler wouldn’t want Tekken characters in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Super Smash Bros. fans – do you want Tekken characters to join the Super Smash Bros. roster?
“That question was one of the most frequently asked questions we got when we announced the project. Especially from abroad.”
“The fans, rather than asking about Tales or Gundam, or some of our other franchises, the fans abroad saw Tekken as one of the key words and took off on that.”
“We’re not really sure at this moment but when thinking of the playerbase who is playing Smash Bros, maybe Tekken characters is something they wouldn’t want, so I’ve been pulling back on that a bit. But I don’t know.”
