Smash Bros Producer Says Next Smash Bros “Game System Is Complete”

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.”

    1. ur not getting what he means, he means that he wont go crazy adding ppl who arent from nintendo just because, it will be cases where he feels they deserve to be in it

      1. I would be glad to see Snake go, since he has no particular meaning, I mean; he also comes a lot on Sony consoles.
        Sonic I don’t mind, because he has been together with Mario in so many games, I’ve come to see him as ”half a Nintendo character”.

    1. Just so long as most of the newer features, characters, etc. are kept quiet. I knew everything about Brawl before it came out. I hope they show very little new stuff but show all the stuff being remade like past characters and stages, etc.

      1. Nonspecific action figure earthworm Jim ezio spyro pacman megaman shadow knuckles eggman rayman travistouchdown nd raiden forthwith thurdparty!!!

    1. probably stuff like the physics, the general engine, game modes etc. They most likely added a few test characters and stages at this phase. they chose the marble, set it up in their studio and now they will begin to sculpt it.

    2. Game engine. Basically the character model editors, stage editors. Their whole tool kit to create a skeleton for the game

  1. is he talking about 3d effects flying in your face or will the not add 3d graphics at all for the 3ds version?

          1. tell that to pro gamers who make money with those “skills and talent”

            when players are able to consistently able to make it to the top of tournaments, especially in multiple games, it is talent. The ability to consistently understand, break down, and master mechanics of games with that level of proficiency is talent.

          2. Yes, because if anybody disagrees with the usefulness of a talent, it doesn’t exist. I know you’re trolling, but could you please do it better like the real Aeolus?

  2. Oh !! Now ssb is being milked now !! Is their Anything Nintendo dosnt recycle ?? No new characters , no new controlls , similar game ?? THEN WATZ THE POINT OF BUYING THIS PIECE OF SHIT ??? GO EAT IT UP U FANBOYS LMFAO !!

    1. name one company that doesn’t continue a series as popular as this. and obviously, changing too much will make it a different game which fans of the original will hate.

    2. I rate this troll 0/10. Try harder next time, shit stain. First, learn the proper form of there. Then, you need to get your facts straight before you start spouting off bullshit. Sakurai didn’t say there wouldn’t be any new characters, he said there would be fewer 3rd party characters.

  3. I know a lot of you guys will call me crazy but i don’t want the game to release in a close date because if for example they release SSB. 4 before Zelda HD we will be stuck with the Link of SS i don’t say its bad but the HD Link looked better the the SS one so thats the problem i have with the game releasing early but its ok its only an idea and hey should put in the game Dark Pit,Lady Palutena,Medusa and maybe Hades and Viridi from Kid Icarus:Uprising again only a idea ;-)

        1. Well Dark Pit uses always a Darkness Bow and Pit any weapon and Dark Pit can fly by himself instead of Pit who needs Lady Palutena or Viridi

                1. dude i didnt have a wii to play SSBB and what do u know its nintendo nintendo its unique maybe they will do something crazy and we will get Dark Pit and i have liberty to express my self saying all the ideas i have in my head

              1. Just play Brawl, change Pit’s color to black and you will play as Dark Pit -. -‘
                Sakurai is so genious that he was able to implement Dark Pit before he even invented him :’D

          1. I’d rather they just let you select from a few weapons for Pit than make a separate character. That might be an interesting way to expand what a “costume” is. Instead of just being a skin, some could also have an alternate moveset like w/ Paper Mario, Pokémon Trainer or Skyward Sword and E3 2011 Link. They wouldn’t take up a character slot this way, and the costumes would no longer be purely cosmetic.

          1. Only important characters, please.
            Magnus, Pyrhon etc. should not make the cut. Can Viridi even fight on her own? They should only add Palutena, Medusa, and Hades. Dark Pit is a definite no-no!

  4. I hope they have the trophies again, it took me forever to get all of them and in the end i don’t think i ever did

  6. Dr. Eggmen, Tails and Amy should be added from the Sonic series and as new 3rd party series Megaman and maybe Bomberman.

  7. So the percent gage will still be there to knock opponents off stage or are they adding something new to the fighting system

  8. actually i hope the part about not making it 3d was referring to the 3d effects. I love smash bros. But its starting to get stale. If it meant making it a better game, i would want them to explore the possibility of 3d gameplay.

    or at least bring something new mechanics wise that will make the game feel fresh. I will be pretty disappointed if this is just another melee or brawl with a change in roster.

    also, i’d want multiple players to be able to have supers at once…even if it means ditching smash balls and implementing supers as a mechanic some other way

  9. I hope this takes forever for them to make. That way we can expect it to be well thought out and a great game.

  10. Looks like things are going well. Things are probably moving at break neck speed due to Namco’s help. I can’t wait to get my hands on the final product. Leave luck to heaven.

  11. I’m more than pleased with what Sakurai says. A 3D effect wouldn’t be very good. As long as all brawl characters are still in I’ll be happiest girl on eart. Specially Meta Knight. Call me cheap, but I really like him, not because he’s strong and fast but he’s a cool guy in the Kirby games.
    Thank you Sakurai.

  12. so fast?! Sakurai, please slow down. Don’t fucking listen to the people saying “I want a smash bros now!”, they will ruin the franchise for us, the true fans. Just take your time and make it perfect.

  16. I’d like to see an homage to Pac-Man in some form; No.5 is popular enough to be a character, and to have its own level, but even as one of those auxiliary “summons” it’d do it well. But personally, I prefer the air.
