It will be... Amazing...
To me, this is Nintendo's GTA.
Ok I should have been more specific. GTA5 is coming and all (or most) of us are wanting new information heck right now we are anticipating the cover art teased earlier this month and should be reveal in the next week. Smash Bros. is similar to the sense that we crave to know anything about the game even in the slightest detail. If sales wise, I would say Pokemon or Mario would be a better choice.
I think he meant in the sense that it is the Nintendo franchise everyone has to have, just like GTA on PS3 and XBOX.
how can you even compare smash bros and gta? Gta V is piece of **** compared to smash bros.
GTA V isn't out yet.
Smash Brawl the single most sold game in America.
gta is a teen game made to tend to teens frustrations in life. Smash Bros. is a masterpiece for us intellectual gamers who loves hard work put down by developers.
ultimate douche. I suggest you refrain from saying anything about intelligence again. Ever.
To me Lego City Story is Nintendo's GTA. Boom.
Wouldn't Lego City be Nintendo's GTA? You know, since it's like GTA but exclusive to Nintendo?
I agree with you and I understood what you were saying with out need of further explanation.
@ People who brought-up Lego City. I can't wait to see more about that title. Lego games & GTA style play for the whole family is a godsend for gamer parents everywhere.
Hopefully, they will allow us to Build in-game models.
Decent article, but there was quite a bit of speculation to call this an "Everything We Know" article. More like a "What We Expect" kind of thing.
I get excited reading about anything Smash bros.
Hope it has some great online play. Would love to do some 2v2 online with my room mate.
This article was actually pretty insightful and put some things into perspective (for me anyway) while applying some neat predictions and ideas that could be implemented. Overall nice read.
Shulk better be in the game.
Not only that, Golden Sun characters have been waiting in line for God knows how long...
Isaac was an assist trophy in Brawl. If the rumors about Little Mac are true, then Isaac may wind up being playable in this game.
Shulk, Syrenne, Zael, Viewiful Joe and Rayman im hoping
Hmm since they are the same game on both platforms i wonder if Nintendo will adopt Sonys cross buy feature with this. It would be really nice to see.
I was just thinking the same thing. I hope they do. I can't wait for this game and I think this year will be another big year for Nintendo.
The 3ds version will sell. Nintendo has no reason to give out the game for free. Sony: "Give out free copies of the Vita version and maybe people would buy the Vita." The 3ds is selling lol.
I'm not too sure about the separation of WiiU/3DS at this point. You all know about the restructuring at Nintendo which could be an indicator for that game too. Well, I guess they won't just copy a clone of their own game and do what PS AllStars did, but I see a cross-play feature coming there, even if it's just a small one.
If I want new experience I'll pick the WiiU version. No way I'll get a downgraded 3DS version that looks worse than Melee and Brawl and not 60fps
because different experience equals downgrade
We know nothing lol besides the fact that it will be on 3DS and WiiU.
Maybe it wont be downgraded but the WiiU version will be based off of what the 3ds can do so that they are pretty much the same.
Great read actually. Lays out the facts.. The speculation is based on reality.. Nice read.
Why are Tekken and Tales still the only Namco games people are considering for the game? Seriousy Namco, get your head out of your butt and consider Pac-Man.
So wait, the 3DS game won't have the traditional gameplay at all! No, please, for the love of god, NO!
I think it would have to. It's still a Smash Bros. Game. Nobody would buy it if it didn't have the traditional gameplay too.
We don't know that at all.
To all those who skipped reading the article: It's actually really interesting. I didn't know... well pretty much everything the author wrote about the behind the scenes of SSB. I wasn't really looking forward to this game until this article. Now I hope the author is right and the game comes out this year.
I doubt it will be out this year. From reading all these articles about how Sakurai said it will be "well worth the wait" and about minimizing his communication with fans until it's finished, I get the feeling it will be late 2013 or early 2014 before we even get a release date announcement. On the bright side, I'm sure we'll get at least a teaser trailer at this year's E3.
Pac-Man has to be playable in this.
Eh, I hope no Tekken characters. I think of that series as mostly a playstion series. I hope everybody is carried over and nobody is dropped. DLC better be in this, Nintendo, despite being new to DLC, has been doing a good job with AC and NSMB2. Downloadable characters and stages would be awesome.
