When it comes to what characters and series should be represented in the Smash Bros series, there’s always been a bit of debate over the specifics. Should third parties be limited to a certain number of slots to avoid overshadowing Nintendo ones? Do characters from other consoles stand a chance? Are real life people and characters from non video game media a step too far? These questions and more always come up. But do you know what I think? Smash Bros should be everything goes. No rules, no restrictions on inclusion; just whatever gets people hyped up more. Keep reading to find out more…
Late (given that it was announced on the official site early this morning), but I may as well mention it anyone. The character Ashley from the WarioWare series has been announced as an Assist Trophy for the new Super Smash Bros title on 3DS and Wii U. See the screenshot confirming it, as well as more information from Sakurai himself past the break!
Well, with it being only a few days until the New Year, I think it’s only right I start posting my predictions for the coming year. So here’s what I predict will happen with Nintendo in 2014, as based on all available evidence and reason. What games are going to be announced? What changes will probably be made at the company? Read on to hear my thoughts on the matter!
Worried the next Super Smash Bros game was going to be delayed like so many others by Nintendo? Desperately wanting the game in your possession by the upcoming year? Well if so, it seems you should be in luck, since Masahiro Sakurai himself has actually stated that he ‘resolves to complete development of the new Super Smash Bros games and release them in 2014′.
No, I’m not kidding. Apparently, one of the original plans for The Wonderful 101 was that it’d be 100 Nintendo characters teaming up to go on an epic adventure and take down the forces of evil. So the likes of Mario and Link would replace the likes of Wonder Red and Wonder Green. Here’s Hideki Kamiya’s original comment about the game: Originally I got an order from the president of Platinum Games, Tatsuya Minami, asking me to create a game idea that had an all-star cast of Nintendo characters plus characters from other games and that’s how the project started. … When you try and incorporate many characters with high popularity, there are fans who like certain characters more than others.

Not satisfied after hospitalising each and every Nintendo and/or Mega Man fan on the planet, Nintendo have uploaded an exclusive look at the new Super Smash Bros. game for 3DS and Wii U through a ‘developer direct’. As you can see the video provides a more detailed look at both versions of the game. Excellent footage, and I really would like to see more of these ‘Developer Direct’s in the future. The video also confirms Wii Fit trainer as a playable character. A highly unusual choice, albeit one that proves to be oddly amusing. Judge for yourselves. Source(s): Nintendo
Super Smash Bros 3DS and Wii U have been announced, including Megaman and the Villager from Animal Crossing. This includes a few trailers: Hope everyone’s excited! I know I am! BTW, sorry Nin3DS for being late, I didn’t get your message right away.
It’s well known that the music in the Super Smash Bros series is fantastic, made of some of the greatest orchestrated remixes and covers of tunes from all throughout Nintendo history. It’s also fairly well known that Shinesparkers’ last project, the Metroid fan album ‘Harmony of a Hunter’ was a great series of fan remixes and covers of music from the Metroid series. So what happens when you put two great things like this together? This new album they’re working on, that’s what! Yes, they’re working on a new music album based on the Super Smash Bros series and are covering music from every single series represented within! There’s going to be new versions of Mario music, Zelda music, Pokemon […]
In an interesting article by Polygon, they discuss someone who wrote in to Super Smash Bros producer Masahiro Sakurai complaining about the online multiplayer in Super Smash Bros Brawl. He said that “The other day, I had my first run at Smash Bros. Brawl online play. What I found was that nobody ever went on the attack; it was like everyone was taking the approach of waiting for the other guy to take the offensive. There were no items, either. I wanted to shout at them ‘This isn’t how you do Smash Bros.’!” and finished by asking Sakurai what he thought of this style of battling in the game. Or in other words, what Sakurai thought of the ‘no items, final destination’ style […]
The guy must seriously be one of the most determined people at Nintendo in history, he’s still working on Super Smash Bros 4 despite a crippling arm injury. You know, even to the point of testing both the Wii U and 3DS versions while theoretically in agonising pain. Here’s what he has to say about the situation: I think the one word I’ve said the most this year, by far, is ‘Ow!’ Not only am I getting calcific tendonitis, but they’ve also found what are apparently several ruptures in the muscles. My upper arm hurts, and there’s this chronic dull pain in my elbow joint as well. On the lower arm, there’s this feeling of fatigue around the flexor muscles […]
