Nintendo’s Missed Smash Bros. Opportunity

Gamnesia: Yesterday we polled the audience to see what you think of Nintendo's choice to give Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U identical rosters. A majority of the audience voted that they were against the idea, and that the two games should have separate rosters. While I understand director Masahiro Sakurai's desire to be fair, I have to agree with the poll winner. Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U should have separate rosters, and those rosters should cater to their respective platforms. The fact that this is not the case is a missed opportunity by Nintendo.

The rosters are different...both games are actually not that similar.

The rosters are the same... what are you talking about?

randomass1711262d ago

You mean the modes and graphics are different.

KaladinStormblessed1262d ago

My mistake, For some reason I was thinking they were different.

So long as they take time to rebalance the characters a bit. I heard some of them weren't very good.

Way too early to make judgements on character balance...

You may be right. I haven't played it yet. That's just what I heard.

If the two games were not the same entry of a popular series, sure. Alas, they are and their gameplay can be connected in some way(s); the 3DS could be used as a controller for the Wii U version, I think? It is understandable for the stages to be different between the two games as who wins depends more on the roster and items should they remain activated.
I suppose the question is: Could 3DS users battle Wii U users without the 3DS being the controller for the Wii U version (similar to Monster Hunter 3 | Ultimate's Local Play via local wireless)?

my main complaint is that i believe the third party characters shouldve been locked so we can unlock them. However i see why they did this because they want the gamers to go straight online with them. So i honestly cant make a big deal about it lol. Oh yeah and Greninja is awesome

I wanted everything unlocked :( even the custom specials
