Super Smash Bros creator Masahiro Sakurai has explained the reasons behind why the brawler for the New Nintendo 3DS will support the C-Stick but not the Circle Pad Pro. As we reported earlier this month, the Circle Pad Pro would not be supported on current 3DS models, despite it being a mirrored device for additional circle pad support.
However, the game’s director has addressed such concerns in his new Famitsu column, saying that the C-Stick support was enabled due to the increase in power from the new models, along with it fixed internally on the device rather than a peripheral control.
“Supporting the CCP requires the use of some of the CPU’s processing load. From the information received during the development of Kid Icarus: Uprising, this is a quite large load at around 5%. Kid Icarus: Uprising and Smash both use the maximum capability of the device, so we had to abandon the idea of CCP support. With the New 3DS, we were able to support the C-Stick as the processing power is increased and it is not a peripheral device.”
Protip: nobody gives a single shit.
Well, I am taking a crap right now so I don’t think that’s quite accurate lol
Yes, but you aren’t sharing said shit, are you? If you were, I would tell you to get checked out at the doctor’s.
Do you people really buy into this crap?….I JUST CAN’T ANYMORE!
Not really… I love Sak but I can tell that he lies or just says what we want to hear.
Good for you. Refer to my earlier comment.
that makes plenty of sense, though how do you explain resident evil: revelations?
Exactly. If Revelations pulled it off and used up all of the power of the hardware, then what’s Sakurai’s excuse?
Maintaining 60 frames
I don’t remember anyone stating that revelations used all the power of the console…
Different type of power and game. Apparently, Smash seems to be more CPU heavy that Revelations, RE is a slow game after all with basic zombie AI. The game was definitely working the GPU, but the CPU side could be a different story.
Smash is a fast pace game with multiple AI and a lot of game object collisions (physics).
yeah because making a game for a handheld and console instead of just the console is lazy idiot.
Work on a game that is going to be release on an Handheld and a Console and then talk later…
Take a shot, brainless
It makes sense that if it was going to hinder the game’s performance on the system, then why have it. Thank You Sakurai for the explaination, even though you didn’t owe one to the fans. The effort you put into making every game you make the best it can possible be.
If there was a Gaming Hall of Fame, then Sakurai would definitely be one of the first inducted as he has risked his own health multiple times to deliver stella game after stella game.
gunpeiyokoi was better
@Note-I said one of the, not the very first, I would probably put Hiroshi Yamauchi as the first…
This isn’t twitter
If it makes sense, then how did RE Revelations pulled it off and beyond that?
Did it push the system to it’s very limits? If so, then good point, if not then Sakurai was right not to add circle pad support…
If you think thAt game has more power than smash your fucking stupid capcom games are small
You’re talking to the guy that first meantioned Resident Evil in the first place and not me for questioning him right???
RE:R currently holds the biggest file size with 25,000 blocks roughly around 4gigs or so…
Top lel. Its possible to make a 1GB game that takes more CPU than a 25GB game.
I agree that sakurai makes great smash games, but damn man…ease up on the cum swallow
He’s obviously lying to justify the fact that they’re intentionally hindering the old system, just to help push the new one, you cock guzzling fanboy.
Makes much sense! This game already blocks Miiverse and internet browser usage and forces the system to restart every time you close the game (it’s scary).
i know… it’s really weird.
im lost, what use does a second stick have in smash bros?
it’s used for a quick smash-attack, it’s been around since it became a thing in smash bros melee
The C-Stick can also be used for aerials and throwing items, which is important to some people such as myself.
I didn’t know the Circle Pad Pro actually used part of the 3DS’s CPU so that’s nice to know and makes sense to cut CCP support. I don’t think the C pad had any real significant different in Smash Bros though, as far as I know at least.
It’s generally used for Smash Attacks, I believe.
Also for back aerials. If you do a back aerial attack with just the circle pad, you lose your forward momentum. By using the second circle pad/C-stick, you can keep your forward momentum while striking backwards at the opponent.
Additionally, using the C-Stick for Dairs will nullify the chance of an accidental fast-fall.

Keep spamming posts like this and you will be banned.
How? He is an anonymous commenter! o_O
why is sasori not banned? he makes jokes over a dead guy. robin williams.
He knows not to come here anymore with his trolling, or else I take charge.
The clergy of the Church of Sasori has declared and exposed the hypocritical ideologies of the Nintendo fanboys on this site. On one hand you criticize Sasori for having an opinion in which in no way does he have any hatred towards any specific individual/personalities here just a one sided viewpoint toward Nintendo yet you guys attack him individually with racist comments and hatred remarks.. It’s disgusting..
A gaming Martyr…
Really? Cause I thought he just talked shit about nintendo on mynintendonews so how bout fuck right off. you can burn with him
am not scared of you
because sickr needs me to get money for his xbox games :’D
You don’t say
Wow this clown makes a bs excuse yet is exposed by Capcoms effort to push the 3ds even further and include cop support. This guy needs to lay off the rice.
Comment edited for unnecessary slander
Are we not banning this guy silvershadowfly?^
Didn’t see the comment until this morning, it’s been edited and seems to be a one-off.
Isn’t it a third party device as well?
None of you have any idea wtf you are talking about
That makes sense. No one has one anyway and they don’t sell them anywhere
i never saw the need to adquire a CCP.
the new 3DS looks tempting
Wait, but.. Doesn’t KI:U support the CPP for lefties anyway? :S So you can move with the right stick and aim with your left hand using the stylus?
That is a translation mistake, what he actually want to say was:
“We already fool you to buy that shit, now we need to fool you to buy the new shit (pointing out to the “New” 3DS XL)”

To anyone reading this: the real reason is because they want you to buy the new expensive console to have the full game, thats all…..
Sm4sh for 3DS is using more CPU Power than any Game ever before. Or does anyone know a Title that has to deactivate multiple System Services in Order to be playable on it? I don’t. And if CPP needs some extra Power, then it can’t be supported at all because the Game alone already broke all Walls of Possibilities.
See, there is always a behind the scenes reason why developers do what they do. People always complain however without knowing the full story…
My CPP was bought used for $10. I only use it to make my OG 3DS more comfy to hold for long durations
I know a lot of people are firing at Sakurai and the big-N for not supporting the CPP and making the N3DS more powerful respectively. But honestly I think that what they did with Smash Brothers 3DS creates for other developers potential to push the 3DS to its full capacity—more detailed graphics with 60fps gameplay even in 3D! Just imagine what more RE:R could have been if they had pushed the 3DS like that! Of course, the obvious trade-off is no access to the Internet Browser and Miiverse during gameplay and resetting the 3DS everytime the game is closed but I’m sure a lot of people will agree that that’s a small price to pay to enjoy a much beefier RE:R (Capcom please bring RE:R2 to 3DS/N3DS this way!!) or maybe MGS3D and other future potentially more resource-intensive games on the handheld all in 60fps even in 3D!! Doesn’t anyone agree?
Either way, Smash Brothers 3DS is one, if not the best game I’ve ever played on the 3DS. I can’t wait to get the full game when it releases Friday. The big-N should brace itself for a huge midnight rush into the eshop on launch day.

Funny he would mention Kid Icarus Uprising which didn’t even use the CPP for anything but adding left hand controls instead of making it work for the camera. So the CPP would have just been used for lefties instead of adding something like using it for Smash attacks.
I’m sorry but i’m not buying this bullshit sakurai. I dont mind that it doesn’t support ccp, what i do mind is him giving a bullshit excuse and straight up lying to the consumer. Don’t underestimate the consumers intelligence nintendo. Just be honest instead. It will work out better in the long run.
