Sakurai on why Smash Bros. 3DS came out before Wii U version, changes in Final Smashes, stage tidbit

Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai published a new column in this week’s issue of Famitsu. That was a bit of a surprise, as Sakurai only tends to write columns on a bi-weekly basis.

In any case, numerous topics about Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS were once again discussed. Sakurai commented on why the 3DS version launched before the Wii U game as well as changes in Final Smashes. He also shared a tidbit about one of the unlockable stages in the 3DS version.

Of course the "lesser" version would come out first, so they can sell the units. 1) Generate hype for the WiiU version. 2) Together people would just buy the WiiU version. 3) If the 3ds was 2nd no would ever bother with it unless they just a 3ds owner.

Have you not been paying attention to Nintendo? They're struggling to get WiiU games out as quickly as they can. No way in hell would they hold back on releasing a title just to move sales for the handheld version.

I wouldn't say they are struggling to get their games out as such just Nintendo will never just churn a game out if it's not ready it's not released simple as with Nintendo, hence why they get the odd patches here and there now but how often do nintendo games release with a patch a day one patch at that very rarely, skyward sword, mario and luigi and pokemon are the main ones I can think of other than that generally they are not needed as they take the time required on the developement in the first place. Quality takes time and I'm always happy to wait when the games they release are so outstanding, not many companies could have a top 100 of their games alone (I'm talking full nintendo not 3rd party) you could probably fill nintendo's list to 200, Nintendo are the Guru's of gaming.
