[Rumor] Smash Bros. 3DS verison will be retro-based?!
Zelda Informer has reported that they got some information from an anonymous source that the next Smash Brothers game will focus on different properties for each version.
The 3DS version will focus on retro properties while the Wii-U version will focus on more modern properties. The source goes on to mention that the 3DS version, called Super Smash Brothers Memories, will include Donkey Kong Jr., Ridley, Pac-Man, Takamaru, Mach Rider, Dig-Dug, and Stanley the Bug Man.
The source claims that the game will be released holiday of next year, but no word on the Wii-U version. The rest of the letter is located in the source if people want to read it.
I think that, if this is true, that this will be a good way to include all the characters that fan want, like Stanley the Bug Man!
I highly doubt this is true. If they make new characters exclusive to both rosters in each game then they are just making both games incomplete versions of each other. It makes it annoying for the customers who have one console but not the other. This is because there could be characters that the person likes that are exclusive to the other version. I think the 3DS version will just have a smaller and more basic roster with the big focus on character customization while the Wii U version will be the next major step.
That's neat. I like the idea of both versions being their own games. This should also help ease the wait for the console version.
I doubt it, but it would be cool and it would fit in line with Nintendo's approach in keeping the handheld games a little more old-school than their console counterparts.
Ah, well in that case it would make sense.
No Belmont? We need a Belmont in this game.
They can make it like Pokemon where you connect both versions to get ALL the characters.
Namco is just being brought in as code monkeys, so there's no "guarantee" that NB characters will be in. And even then, there's nothing to suggest they'd get any more than one character.
Yeah, no. Never.
Seems too good to be true, but it would solve the new characters problem. I hope that they are separate games like this.
The new Smash Bros is being co-produced with Namco Bandai, so it's almost a given that DigDug and Pac Man will be in the game.
So THIS might be what Namco-Bandai were working on.
i would love this.
Fuck yeah, Stan!
While I like the idea this seems to be fake. Characters like DigDug (aka. Hori Taizo) are not the property of Nintendo, thus they would need some serious licensing. There hasn't been any third party characters aside from Sonic and Snake anyway.
No one said they'd be 8-bit. lol
fake and if not that would be awesome
Although it's probably fake, it would be awesome to at least have the option to play either modern or retro style.
This is probably fake but it sounds really neat :)
This is fake, we can all agree on that. But i do like the idea of 8-bit 2d characters. Maybe as an unlockable graphics option ?
