DualShockers Writes:" In the world of competitive fighting games, there’s one series that no one seems to be able to reach an agreement about. That, ladies and gentlemen, would be the Smash Bros. series. The developers themselves have confessed that the series was never intended to be taken seriously on a competitive level, yet that hasn’t stopped fans from organizing regular full-fledged tournaments, crafting homebrew balance patches and updates, and even forming their own committee on tournament rules and practices.
Nintendo recently revealed the explosive news that development of the next Smash Bros. game would be handled by none other than Namco Bandai. One has little choice but to wonder how exactly the beloved series will be affected by this."
