Super Smash Bros 4 story mode is changed so that players don't 'watch cutscenes online'

Masahiro Sakurai has revealed that the Wii U and 3DS versions of Smash Bros won't have a story mode like Brawl. But now he says why the game's single player mode is changing, citing fans viewing cutscenes online instead of in-game as the main reason.

I loved the story mode in brawl. I'm not a fighting gamer so the story mode is what drew me to SSBB in the first place.. It's sad to hear there won't be story drivin cutscenes in the new SSB.

That isn't THE reason, but A reason. Possible the main reason, but this title makes it sound like the sole reason.

I thought it meant that this has online coop story and the cutscenes wont be during online gameplay. It kinda sucks without the scenes..but i guess oh well.

Cut scenes may be live and based on actions.

The only purpose of this game is to play against friends in offline multiplayer, this is so much fun.

Mr_Nuts1971d ago don't take a step backwards you take it forward.

I don't see why Nintendo just didn't make this in house instead of outsourcing it to Namco.

Just disable the cutscenes when people are playing online....problem solved

Are you an idiot? By "online" they mean on youtube.

Mr_Nuts1971d ago (Edited 1971d ago )

Oh that....that's even worse

So because some people watch cutscenes online, it automatically means no story mode

Just seems like a massive excuse to me, they even said recently that working on the handheld version will hold back the console version

Oh by the way don't call me an idiot because you just come off as a massive dick being like that.

the games not outsourced to namco, internal nintendo devs are working on the game, namco was brought in a la Retro for mario kart 7, to get the game on to shelves ASAP. look at it like this: brawl started development in 2005, and it took 2 and a half years to come out. this game started development in 2012 and it's obviously going to be even bigger than brawl, so the reasonable 2014 release is probably contributed to by namco's help.
