Smash Bros 3DS necessary to evolve the series

officialnintendomagazine:

Masahiro Sakurai has said the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros was the starting point for the new games in the series. According to Sakurai, creating a handheld version of Nintendo's brawler will evolve the series as simply adding more content wouldn't be enough to differentiate it from Brawl and Melee.

3D is a visual gimmick, it has no relevance to gameplay mechanics. So I call BS on this statement, unless it's about re-working the camera on Brawler-style games to focus more on individual player characters rather than the whole group.

I think it's more about making Smash Bros. on-the-go as well as on a console. And because the 3DS specs can handle a game like it, unlike previous Nintendo hardware.

Did you even bother to read the article before commenting? The article makes no mention of 3D, so I'm unsure as to why you decided to bring it up and use it as an argument against Masahiro Sakurai's statement.

go buy a 3DS with the game Super Mario 3D Land and then come back and re-read your comment (:

This game isn't about the 3D.

It's about the cel shading. Also having a handheld version allows them to maybe experiment.

If they experiement on Wii U version and it fails, we aren't getting another SSB game for 5+ years.

If they experiement on 3DS version and it doesn't work out so hot....they still have the MAIN Wii U version.

How don't you comprehend this? Can't you think past right now?

3D is a visual effect.
Cel-shading is a visual effect.

Neither of these effects have any real impact on any game systems, and therefore are irrelevant in terms of innovation.

And it seems a bit silly to think of WiiU/3DS multiplatform title in terms of the 3DS being the "test" version and the WiiU version being the "real" version, simply because developers don't work that way, and also because the 3DS is a far more dominant platform than the WiiU at the moment.

Most people will disable the 3D so its not going to innovate the game. It's a great game without the 3D.

Shows Nintendo thought process and I have to agree a bigger roster and more arenas is not what ALL you want. We can easily play Brawl and keep it moving.
I like that they want to innovate and look further. Otherwise whats the point?

This is yet another reason that Nintendo's name just simply = quality.

So in my mind:

WiiU: better visuals, better online, better control options(?)

3DS: no load times, portable, 3D,

I feel like I'm missing something here, it's hard to choose.

Also,

Wii U: More confirmed characters at the moment, easier local multiplayer

3DS: Cheaper

It IS hard to choose. Luckily I'm getting both.

will the 3ds version be 60FPS? It looked to be 30 in the trailers
