Harada takes Smash Bros. seriously... shouldn't you?

We’ve all been in the same fighting game community haven’t we? So were all aware of the many fighting games that have been coming to us as of late: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Skullgirls, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Dead or Alive 5 and of course Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition but with those games where does Smash Bros. fit into you ask? Some gamers can debate forever on the very subject, some believe it’s not a real fighting game for a reason for the lack of combos or hit stun decay after moves. I think and believe Smash to be a very vital part of the community and its own fanbase and Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada agrees with me and considers Smash to be a contender for the Fighting Game Community. Something else Harada and i agree on is the tastes of certain gamers and the communities for the games they are passionate about since one group doesn’t think Smash is something they play doesn’t mean that the whole series has to change, some gamers prefer A,B,C combo systems rather than Super Street Fighter’s engine which has a higher learning curve a quote regarding Harada and Smash let’s us know where he stands on the subject:

“It seems that the motivation behind the players in those core groups is not as different as I initially thought. I came to this conclusion after seeing them in tournaments, and also after playing Smash Bros. more myself and also looking at YouTube videos — I began to see a lot of similarities. So I think if each community surrounding Tekken, Street Fighter and Smash Bros. could look more open-minded at each other’s games, you might find that there’s a lot more similarities and a lot that you’d enjoy about the game, and that can be said for all sides.”

Masahrio Sakurai creator of Smash is still very much involved with the development with Namco Bandai in making the next game and who knows who will make an appearance in the final build and what changes they can bring but with Bandai in the room we can all rest assured that a great game is coming to us. Sakurai and Harada do the fusion dance and bring us something like… Sakurada! (Nintendo, Super Smash Bros., Wii, Wii U)

Perhaps make the summary a little shorter, and actually a summary instead of the entire article haha. I must say I haven't seen that before, quite humorous.

If they make it a legitimately good fighter, I'll take it seriously. Until then, it's just a fun little weekend party with friends. That's why I enjoy All-Stars so much. It's something that fighting veterans can really sink time into.

I consider SSB more of a modern day Beat 'em up than a fighting game.
