Smash Bros series creator Masahiro Sakurai has revealed that the story mode for Super Smash Bros Wii U and 3DS won’t be like the one found in Brawl. The Wii incarnation of Smash Bros contained the Subspace Emissary which was a sprawling side-scroller mode with detailed cut-scenes. Sakurai says the single player mode for Super Smash Bros Wii U and Nintendo 3DS will be different from this, but wouldn’t reveal anymore details.
“There will be a single player [campaign], but it won’t be like the [Subspace Emissary] mode in Brawl.
One thing we can do with the Smash Bros. series that’s unique to us – because we have all these different disparate characters brought together – is we can create that sort of fan-movie experience as a special gift. But now those things are posted on the internet, it doesn’t really become a gift for people who played the game.”
“What we decided this time around, we’re just going to have [those movies unlocked] from the beginning. We’re going to have a movie for Wii Fit Trainer, The Villager and Mega Man and they’ll be viewable right at the beginning, you can watch those right away.”
