The Next Super Smash Bros. Won't Have a Story Mode or Cutscenes

KT:Hey, remember Super Smash Bros. Brawl? Remember the Subspace Emissary adventure mode? Did you see the CG cutscenes? Well, thanks to spoilers, you won't have any of those in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U and 3DS.

Well, that's a bummer.... I loved the Subspace Emissary.

Probably for the best, in my opinion. Subspace Emissary felt tacked on to me, lacking the depth and refinements of a proper platformer. It's not something I went back to when I was done.

I'd have to agree, the video scenes really put me off playing that part of the game.

That was one of my favorite things about the game. My only wish was that it would allow 4 players and that it had more death to what you could do. My favorite part was that you could augment and power-up your characters.

I was hoping they would ad sticker upgrades to regular brawl, now that dream is gone.

With every new release I here, I become less interested in this game because they have stopped making it a full scale project and start building it for tourney fanatics which I am not. Next they're probably going to get rid of items because tourney players hate them so much.

The vs fighting genre has gone far downhill.

we better get another 14 new characters then, i loved the subspace and the cutscenes.

This has to be one of the worst excuses of all time. Don’t want to create content because of Youtube videos? Really?! Cutscenes need time and effort something they clearly don’t have right now since their terrible planning is making them rush in order to catch gamer’s interest in what is becoming a console disaster. I could take other excuses… But putting the responsibility on gamers like a kind of punishment because of some people who took the video content online?!! It’s too much of an insult man! Imagine if it were Square Enix, Konami or Rockstar Games... that's BS.

I'd rather have the team spending all their time and effort on balancing and perfecting the game, instead of adding content that immediately becomes useless after one playthrough. Yes, I thoroughly enjoyed Brawl's story, including its spectacular cutscenes, but I don't mind such a sacrifice.

Besides, they might be cooking up something else.

I agree the reasoning is BS. ALmost every game gets posted on Youtube. If you don't want the story spoiled for you, then you don't watch it.

It's the gamers choice, and should have nothing to do with Nintendo's decision on whether or not to include it.

Mr_Nuts1729d ago

I know right

I mean the same could be said for any game, look at ND do you think they were scared to create The Last of Us since the cutscenes were going to be put on Youtube....nope.

I think it's laziness in my opinion, they've said themselves how hard it is to create for a HD console and even then you have the other excuse about the handheld version that could hold the console version back

Leave this to dlc which is timed or even based on the ammount of players reaching a certain point

Thepcz1729d ago (Edited 1729d ago )

maybe the next zelda will have no cutscenes then.

i agree that reason is bs. i agree its most likely a time saving exercise

This won't prove to be a bad thing.
