Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada acknowledges that Smash Bros for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS is a huge priority for Namco Bandai. Harada explained that there are a huge number of individuals working on the project, including some from the Tekken franchise.
“Obviously it’s a big priority for the company, so company-wide there are a lot of people involved with that particular project. Not just from Tekken but a lot of our franchises.”
“Although our main core staff is busy with Tekken Tag tournament 2 and trying to finish that up, I do think we’ll support the initiative in some kind of capacity.”
