Super Smash Bros. slow tease isn't cutting it

"The official Super Smash Bros. website confirmed last week that Lucario shall be returning for the fight, for better or for worse.

Lucario first appeared in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and essentially replaced Mewtwo in terms of style and aesthetic. I was surprised to see that Lucario was confirmed this time around; I figured they would replace him with an equally stoic/quasi-psychic Pokémon from the latest generation. That being said, Lucario does play a small role in X and Y and is one of the lucky few who can mega evolve. I imagine Mega Lucario will be his final smash transformation.

While I have no strong feelings on Lucario’s confirmation, I’ve begun to have some qualms about how the Super Smash Bros. updates are being handled." - Stephen Hilger

it's pretty obvious why they are teasing it slowly.

At least with Brawl they had the DOJO, so all the info was packed into one site and everything you wanted to know was a few clicks away.

The new "site" they have is a joke..

I also think they should NOT reveal 3-4 characters before launch and makes the players/US find them out by playing the game and unlocking them.

I think that would add excitement as well.

A new gameplay trailer every now and again would be nice. It would be better than "Hey look, here's a screenshot of the character we announced last week at a slightly different angle!"

The game probably won't be released until Fall anyway. There are at least 6 months before its release, 180 days to show stuff off.

I miss the days of Melee, when every single secret was actually a secret. You were genuinely surprised by the appearance of Ganondorf, Mr. Game and Watch, and Mewtwo

Outside of a few mechanical and balance issues when has Smash disappointed? You get tons of Nintendo and video game references, wide cast of characters, unique, addicting, and easy to pick up yet difficult to master gameplay. Don't forget the story mode and huge selection of remixed and re-done songs across generations and platforms of video games by their respective composers in Brawl

I guess people would rather see Nintendo handle this game like Zelda HD. I'll take a slow drip over nothing at all in the end the game probaly isn't even coming out until late 2014 anytime Mario Kart is dropping in May.

Slow tease? Not necessarily, sakurai reveals more information pretty frequently than most developers. In fact he's given us more info on this game that square enix has given about xv in the last 7 year s, plus with the game releasing this year like all smash bros games he wants to leave some things a surprise
