Nintendo might have sealed the fate of the Smash Bros series with one controller. What can they do to save the future of the franchise.
the controller will be better
There is quite of bit of Wii U hating going on lately.
It's always the way with Nintendo. This time a year ago, the same sites were going on about how the 3DS made people sick and how the Vita would completely thrash it... As the 3DS turned out to be a success and the Vita flopped badly, the same sites hate on Nintendo's next console.....
Wii U hate? There's only "hate" because the Wii U is going to be another underpowered console when compared to the next Xbox and PS4. Plus Nintendo didn't do themselves any favors with the ridiculous unveiling at E3 last year. Axis, you definitely sound like someone who would get upset if they insulted Nintendo in front of you. Stay frosty.
Oh give me a goddamn break. "Rumors have been circulating since E3 that Wii U will only support one controller." Really? The thing is still compatible with the Wii Remote and Classic controller. Not to mention, we don't know yet if the Wii U will not have GCN controller support for sure (GCN game playback is another story). It's also rumored that the Wii U will have GCN titles in its Virtual Console. To assume right away that there won't be a comfortable method of control for this game (which by the way is not due for release for at least two years) as well as a lack of local multiplayer is ludicrous.
Honestly? This. People will find a way to use Gamecube controllers. They aren't switching the gameplay much because there's only one game per console.
Yea I play Smash bros. with the GameCube controllers, its the best way to play it. the classic controller isnt bad either, but GameCube controllers are better
it's compatible with wiimotes and classic controllers. Hell I guarentee you they wont even use the touch screen feature for the game, you don't have to use it. Just like brawl, they didn't use the motion controls just because they were there.
Maybe a wireless gamecube-like controller that only works for wiiU? Idk :P I just hope they have a controller like the gamecube for this game.
A Wavebird ????
kind of like one:)
I'm sure there will be all sorts of control options, especially given the glut of special edition controllers released for certain games on the wii. Aside from the fact that the tablet controller seems fine for SSB and the WiiU will almost certainly support more than one tablet (but maybe only two...), the classic controllers will definitely work, too. And yeah, we're not going to get a glimpse of this game at the next E3, so what difference does it make. And that's making no mention of the 3DS version. Obviously the GameCube controller won't work there. Does that mean it will be terrible? No, I'm sure it will be just as fun as the other ones.
Anyone who honestly believes that Nintendo would launch the WiiU limited to just one pad controller is a fool. It would be console suicide not to sell WiiU pads separately. Nintendo has relied on the local multiplayer experience for decades, and that is not about to change because of a rumor.
Who the hect is approving these articles lately???? Obviously since its compatible withWii remotes it has to work with classic controllers. No one needs to be told that ! We don't know for a fact that the Wii-U only supports one tablet....it may support two.....or maybe four but not likely. And for all we know maybe the 3DS can be used as a controller....do you think Nintendo is really going to to say sorry one tablet input only. And what's this about Nintendo not caring about online, where have you been under a rock???? Nintendo Network says hi.....we heard you guys say you need better online. This article is just idiotic.
I ask myself the same question. It takes eons to get positive Wii U articles approved (such as the video of ReviewTechUSA proving it's not a weak console) as oppose to how quickly negative ones get approved here. And might I say the negative ones are typically horse shit. This one is a perfect example of that.
Whoa man, so many people must own time machines and have gone into the future to collect the details and see and play gameplay of the Wii U's games, because surely you're all not dumb enough to think you know everything about the Wii U AND have played them yourselves?
1st Its been almost confirmed that WiiU will support 2 tablets and Smash bros Universe isnt out until 2014 or something like that,Nintendo have been hard at work on calaborations and other key titles like Super Mario 4,Pikimin 3,Mariokart WiiU,Lego city storys,Concept GrandPrix,WiiU sports,Retro's big project,Crytek's project,ect. 2 controller support is about 90% CONFIRMED GET A LIFE.
They're certainly exploring it. I think the console will support at least two. I think Nintendo wants people to use those Wiimotes though. Remember back in the day when Nintendo said the Wii U's controller could be used as a sensor bar? In a way, we'll still be using the U-pad even when we're not actually playing with it. Besides, you really won't really need more than one if it comes down to online multiplayer. Just saying.
WiiU-Blu-ray. "The launch of WiiU will provide a significant boost to BD-ROM production activity" http://www.singulus.de/uplo...
That's what classic controllers are for. Also, who knows, maybe they'll make a Gamecube style controller that uses bluetooth to sync with the Wii U.
Pretty sure the Wii U will support other controllers. The only issue will be if the developers force this controller to be used. Most games early on will likely have it tacked on just like what Sony did with sixaxis motion stuff.
Oh Lair. Had that game never been made, we might have a Rogue Squadron 4, and Factor 5 might still be around. Sad Pandas.
