Hideo Kojima has shown interest in seeing Snake in the new Smash Bros., but doesn't think it will happen.
Wasn't Snake only in the last Smash Bros in the first place because Kojima wanted him to be in it? I mean from the sound of the quote it made it sound like if Sakurai wanted to, they could use him.
Yeah. Kojima and Sakurai are good friends, and Kojima had asked Sakurai to put Snake into the game.
really cool names!
But he didn't allow him to be in the Playstation All Star game? What the hell man...
I doubt one character would have saved that game. And if it had, then the matches would have been so full of Snakes that that plane movie would have been jealous... lack of match variety, right there...
Yeah but at the time before we knew how good/bad the game was, Snake was a perfect fit
There are other characters than Snake to use. Would've been interesting to see what Snake would be in PSASBR, how he would fight and what supers he would have in the game.
The game was and is never bad. But it WAS light on content, to be sure. Snake would have been a great fit.
"before we knew how good/bad the game was" That could've been a factor when you think about it.
You mad bro?
A bit late isn't it?
Considering there's no release date, this technically could be early
Sakurai isn't adding or taking characters request. Right now he balancing and revealing them.
It is. If he had said this prior to E3 he woud been already
I want to say it could be DLC but Nintendo don't do DLC unfortunately.
They do. Pikmin 3 challenge maps is just one example.
Yes they do. Pikmin 3 and Sonic lost worlds has dlc. Nintendo doesn't like to charge for dlc.
Eh i could do without him. Wont affect me much anyways. Besides, Nintendo has been hitting it outta the park with the characters they decided to add. Little Mac for example was an AWESOME choice
Little Mac = great. Mega Man = awesome. Snake = sold
Correction: Snake = Sol'i'd
Tha't sad news. I really liked to play with him in Brawl.
I want him in too, but the thing is that he has no representation on Wii U. He didn't on Wii either but, still, it'd confuse the less informed audience (And by that I mean kids.) that Snake is a Nintendo character.
Yea why no MGS GZ on WiiU?
Ah several reasons. CPU, low sales, Wii U owners only buy Nintendo games, etc. Looking at the sales and improvements now, it could probably be on there, but I don't want them to delay the game just so we can get a version I'm not buying.
@Geekman CPU complaints are moot. The GPGPU is there to fill that in. The game is on PS3/360, so it can be on Wii U. Those other reasons are pretty valid though. There are very few third party games that Nintendo's audience would buy in great numbers.
@ZainreFang "There are very few third party games that Nintendo's audience would buy in great numbers." So please explain MGS-The Twin Snakes absolutely abysmal sales on the Gamecube ?
@ Eyeco dude, that's what he was saying. He admitted that there are only a few games that Nintendy fans buy outside N
There's no MGS GZ for the WiiU because the hardware just can't handle the game ;)
@Lol_WUT Yet it's coming to PS3/360 - both system that are weaker than the Wii U? Yes, perfect sense.
Metal gear solid 3d!!!super smash bros is is coming out on 3ds as well so thats the game he was in on a Nintendo system. we can use that for these smash bros!
So it's really just up to Sakurai and his team? I mean, I liked playing as Snake in Brawl. I hope he comes back.
I really want him to come back but sadly i wont happen... Nintendo needs to add Wonderful 101 characters in the Smash or Bayoneta
You don't make it in Smash unless you're an icon. Wonderful 101 ain't even in the conversation at this point
@Shinobi "You dont make it in smash unless you're an icon" Actually idk about that statement. Nintendo has put some pretty niche characters in smash before. ROB for example was not well known at all really. Ike is another one that comes to mind. But yeah womderful 101 characters and bayonetta would be stupid in my honest opinion. They just arent really that popular
Hmnnnn If I were Nintendo I would come back and say can we get a MG game on the Wii U.
Not gonna happen. Nice try though.
Buy an X1 or a PS4 for that 3rd party otherwise don't count on it ;)
U own a WiiU?
Still a small possibility. Snake was very popular in Brawl. Basically, Kojima has no idea because there hasn't been any direct contact between him and Sakurai yet. Sakurai could still be working on the final cast. Many of the new fighters from Brawl haven't been re-confirmed yet like Metaknight, ZS Samus, R.O.B, Wario etc
Makes no sense that Snake is in a Smash Bros game, but not a PlayStation All-Stars game...
One has a pedigree, the other didn't/doesn't, Kojima's close relationship with Sakurai and Smash Bros being a fairly large and well known thing is more than likely why Kojima shows any interest.
PS All Stars made no sense, period. (Seriously it was poorly executed)
Bring MGSV to Wii U, then we'll talk. I'd rather have Pac-Man than Snake.
He wants his character in the game but he doesn't suport Nintendo consoles with any game, por a game and then talk. If they don't want to bother with grous zeroes or phantom pain at least port MGR: Revengeance, or port MGS 4
That why he said he don't see it happening but he give Sakurai 100% permission to.
How about we get this character from Ground Zeroes in the game instead. https://pbs.twimg.com/media... ^ Warning, slight spoiler.
Well I can understand why he would want his character in SmashBros, just like I'm sure many Nintendo fans would like to have a Metal Gear game on the WiiU! Maybe he can focus on doing that first. Personally I'd rather she Nintendo advertise Bayonetta in SmashBros, since we have a game coming out soon!
Make it happen.
Well he's right, he doesn't make games for Nintendo platforms anymore.
Snake? Snake?? Snaaaaake!!! We need you in this game Kojima has made a Metal Gear game for 3DS. And hopefully he's got something else in the pipeline
I certainly hope he does, listening to all those codecs were awesome. Sakurai was very pleased with Snake, and he got a great reception by almost everyone. And I'm sure Kojima was proud of how well they nailed Snake's moves, seems like a win for everyone.
Well, I'm all in for Sanke's return. That way, we'd have representants from Nintendo, Sega, Capcom and Konami (man, feels good to write that). But with the last MGS game on Nintendo platforms being Sanke Eater 3D (which is a great game), and no plans to bring MGSV or any other port to the Wii U, it's possible that we may not see him (because of businees... T.T) But Sakurai and Kojima get along well, so maybe there's a spot left for the tactical espionage veteran (I hope...).
Please come back!
E3 2014 Snake at Nintendos E3 Direct should be CEO talking and you hear the sound of snakes communicator....!!! and i would like Ryu from Ninja Gaiden.
So, he wants Snake in SSB but he doesn't want to make any game for Nintendo platforms... at least Sonic and Mega Man was on Wii and WiiU... Ops... I forget MGS3 on 3DS! Sorry Kojima! Ok, anyway no Metal Gear on WiiU.
He should develop a Wii U exclusive then Nintendo will have to put Snake in.
Oh man I'm going to miss c4ing people. I'm not interested in the next smash Bros if snake isn't in it. He is my favourite character out of all them. I know how to smash with him against anyone. He was a beast,he abosorbed damage. And when you thought he down and out he always back thanks to the cypher.
