Masahiro Sakurai, co-creator of the Super Smash Bros. series, and designer of Kid Icarus: Uprising, is working on a new Super Smash Bros. game for the Wii and Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo president, Satoru Iwata, revealed at the company’s E3 media briefing this morning.


Both versions of the game will interact with each other, although no further details were provided. Nor was a release date mentioned.

  • Yu_TheKing

    Definitely cannot wait for this! This time around I hope they balance out characters and add much more epic fighters :D

  • 3D Smash Bros? Sign me up!
    The one game I can play over and over and never get bored, looking forward to it!

  • KotaroInugami

    I vote for Neku Sakuraba (sp) from “The World Ends With You” to be added to the fray.

    • kylehyde

    • DanteJones

      Genesic GaoGaiGar

      •  I’m with Genesic GaoGaiGar.
        And King J-Der, of course.

    • shion16

      nobody is gonna remember that game in 2016

      •  All the more reason to. I hope for more obscure characters and less copies of popular ones.

      • ninjaonizuka

        no one remember pit then BAM he pops outta no where ;D

        • shion16

          people dont remember pit, they just like their new anime style design

  • Eddie

    Let’s get the main character from Chain Dive in it!!!

  • shion16

    ahahahahahahaha xDDD
    I was thinking the same thing xDDDD

    • KotaroInugami

      Wasn’t that the dojo comment? Why was he flagged? lol XD

      • shion16

        Nintendogs were angry i guess xD

  • ZomaNeko

    Literally, when I woke up this morning, this exact idea came to my mind.  Of course when I told others, people said it was stupid.

  • ffboi7

    Yay now the wait for the damn game is gonna be a killer >.< do the Dojo again xD

  • The only Super Smash Bros. game I have played was the one on Nintendo 64 when I was six at my Uncle’s place. That was the only game from the series that I have played in my entire life.

    Fun fighter, I might check out this upcoming game, but first I’ll check out the recent game to see what has changed and what to expect.

    • Exkaiser

      Expect nerfing.

      Smash Bros. Brawl is nerf the game.

      Though, perhaps it won’t be that noticeable if you haven’t played 64 in quite some time- though that didn’t stop me from recalling exactly how useful the Charge Beam used to be and how useful it isn’t anymore.

      • You shall see! They will nerf Captain Falcon and Meta-Knight, and the new God Tier characters will be Jigglypuff and Mr. Game and Watch! You heard it here first!

        • Exkaiser

          Nah, Jigglypuff and Game and Watch will be the first to get nerfed.

          Lucas will be the only character to not get nerfed. Ness will receive double nerfings to make up for it.

  • Masengan

    I guess I’ll be getting 2 more Nintendo consoles just for 1 game again.

    • I can’t be the only one that sees the problem in this logic, right?

      • Yes! You are! Super Smash Brothers, FTW! Day 1, Baby!

      • Masengan

        No problem there, I’ll be getting the Wii U and the 3DS, they said 2 games for each not that they were gonna be the same game, if they’re gonna be the same I’ll pass on one of them.

  • Exkaiser

    Snake will be in it.

    You know why?


  • RagnaXBL

    i’m going to sleep wake me up when this comes out

  • Aiddon

    and people were honestly WORRIED over Nintendo. Check and mate

  • raymk

    Yeah I’m glad its a go but i’m sad its a 2013 release at the earliest just like last time.  No dumb Subspace story this time sakurai,use the development for more characters.  

  • xflame10


  • They better buff up Captain Falcon to the best character or me and other Captain Falcon users will rage…

    Also, I hope they don’t nerf Luigi too much…
    He’s my main and I want him to be very fun to be playable.

  • C’mon! Geno has to be in this game if Nintendo wants to be in peace with 3rd Parties! Square Enix was part of Nintendo’s successes in the past! And we, the fans, were demanding it from the start! Go, Geno!

  • puchinri

    I just want to see the music top what they did last time.
    Well, okay, there’s a lot I want and want to see, but I’m looking forward to it and seeing more. Hopefully soon, yes~?

  • Before talks of a guest character, I’d much rather have an Arcade Edition first, if the fanbase wants to be taken seriously and have Super Smash Bros. in the same discussion as Street Fighter.

    I expect Zorua to replace Lucario.

  • The only thing this game needs on top of Brawl is Mewtwo’s return and Mega Man, and, this time, they better make sure that there are no dramatic differences between how good and bad characters are.

  • The best feature that should be added in this game is the ability to customize Special Attacks and assign them to each directional input! No more up+B Sing for Jigglypuff! All directional inputs must be Sing! Also, they should add Bide as a move for Jigglypuff!

    Also, Link should have ALL of his tools so that we can use them in the game! The same for Mario’s Power Ups, Kirby’s Transformations, Ness’s PK abilities, MOAR FALCON-themed moves for Captain Falcon. And a real moveset for Ganondorf and Mewtwo/Lucario!

    It’s for the Wii U, though since the article is correctly tagged I’m guess it was just a typo. Might want to change that to avoid disappointing some readers though.

    I loved how the crowd cheered when this was announced. I can’t wait to start seeing the line-up and eventually having a portable SSB.

  • Isaac from Golden Sun.  Or Matthew, he looks more badass as a 17 year old.

  • Im hoping they put megaman sens he wasn’t in mvc3  and also pacman and sora that would be epic XD!!!

    • Yep, that would add Namco and Capcom to the mix! Hey, come to think of it…

      Would Reiji and Xiaomu count for this game? Mega 
      man would be a shoe-in! The Classic one, I mean. Konami needs more characters from their other games, like Simon Belmont from the first Castlevania! Sega could add Tails and Knuckles + Dr. Robotnik as an Assist Trophy! You know, the ones that matter! For Namco, it has to be Klonoa and Pac-Man!

  • PrinceHeir

    Samus Aran on HD O_O

    • “Zero Suit” Samus Aran on HD O.O

  • ninjaonizuka

    i want shadow neku mew roy ash megaman protoman or bass :>  

  • We’ll probably get Skyward Sword Link, and I’m hoping for Ghiranim as well. I would love Andy, Sami, Max, and Hawke from Advance Wars. Kalas from Baten Kaitos would be great too. Since we got Lucas in Brawl, I would like to see Duster, Kumatora, Wess, Flint, and Claus (not as an alternate skin for Lucas, either). Also, Jeff and Poo to join Ness. Midna would be a nice addition, but I can see some problems she’d have, fighting wise.

    Stepping away from characters, I would love to see more interactive stages. If they keep the stage builder from Brawl, maybe destructible stages? Also, if they bring back the Final Smash mechanic, I’d like to see more ‘attack-based’ and less ‘status-based’ Smashes. Also, maybe a group Final Smash? Maybe specific items could have a specific Final Smash?
