Sakurai turns back towards Smash Bros.
Everybody, their mother and their cousin twice-removed that you only get to see at Christmas knows that a new Smash Bros. game is coming, but so far, Nintendo has been pretty skimpy with the details. While that hasn't exactly changed, we now at least know that the man in charge, Sora Sakurai, is finally shifting his attention away from Kid Icarus: Uprising and back towards the insanely popular inhouse brawler franchise.
In a Tweet, Mr. Sakurai mentioned that he's been looking over Smash Brothers DOJO (the Japanese website that served as a showcase for new characters and features during the development of Brawl) and wondered..."It's tremendous. How did we manage to make this?," referring to the 2008 Wii game.
Not much to go on for sure, but with such an anticipated game the world stops turning for a fraction of a second every time Mr. Sakurai even thinks about Smash Brothers. And with work on Kid Icarus wrapped up, it seems like it's finally time to rev up that hype machine again as he shifts his attention back to Nintendo's biggest franchise. Good luck Mr. Sakurai, feel free to kick our asses all over again.
In my experience, Mario Kart is the game that destroys friendships lol.
This will certainly be a day 1 purchase for me.
I'll admit I don't feel excited about the new Smash Bros game as I was with Brawl. I hope that changes though. I wonder what guest characters they'll bring in this time...
Smash Bros. is how you build friendships. Mario Party is how you destroy them.
Ironic, isn't it?
just release brawl with a functional online system while were waiting then, my 3ds needs some smash Id be happy with even the n64 port
No offence but I feel like kid icarus will either become a legend in the industry out of nowhere or a nintendo hardcore only game. a smash bros with working online... that is going to sell and sell and sell until every 3ds and wiiu have two copies. lol
Take youre time with this Mr. sakurai. Want this to be awsome
Yes, and I hope he doesn't appear like he does in Street Fighter X Tekken.
This is the kind of game that makes you buy a Wii U
These are the things I want for the next Smash Bros.:
1 - No tripping.
2 - A complete overhaul of Ganondorf's moveset.
3 - Stop nerfing all the returning characters.
We had Sonic in the last one ... Dr.Robotnik in one of his death machines could possible make me squeal like a little girl.
Uhhhhh ... I mean "CONTRA !! GET THE LASER DAWGGG" there manhood saved
So true, I would also like to see Simon Belmont in next super smash bros too. And if Megaman is in next ssb then I hope he has his metal blades with him =D
WE NEED MEGA MAN!
This. A thousand times this.
His name is *** Masahrio Sakurai ***, not Sora Sakura. His company is named Sora.
Mega Man needs you Sakurai!
Don't let us down, I'll be waiting to kick butt once again...as Kirby and Pikachu!
