Smash Bros producer Masahiro Sakurai has revealed that the game system for Smash Bros for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS is now complete and that the development team isn’t looking to add 3D or additional features that will complicate the game just for the sake of it.
“The game system itself is complete, so we don’t want to make it 3D or introduce complicated controls just for the sake of it. However, I am thinking of ways we can introduce a slightly different, fun experience all the while keeping the usual frantic game play.”
“I think Snake and Sonic joining were fantastic. It made many fans happy, and it broadened the Smash Bros arena. However, introducing more non-Nintendo characters willy-nilly will lose the focus of the game, so I also recognise the need to narrow it down.”
