    I honestly didn’t find this surprising. I wonder what the connectivity will be for… maybe using the 3DS as your own screen for something like 4+ players?
    Well I haven’t thought through any of this so feel free to tell how that kind of thing won’t work.

    I understand why cross-play can’t be done, but at the same time why couldn’t they just allow gamers to play the Wii U version using a 3DS as a controller.

    That’d provide most of what cross play would be anyways (it’d just be the same thing minus using your own screen).

    I hope they at least give us a way to unlock the stages from either game by linking them.

      Woah, dude, no. Do you know how many broken controllers I have thanks to Smash Brothers? I have a veritable graveyard full of them, each worn out by aggressive button pressing and stick tapping. I’m glad the Wii-U version won’t require me to slowly destroy something that isn’t cheap to replace.

      • http://hughisaacs2.googlepages.com/ Hugh Isaacs II

        It’s not like I said they should force us to use them as controllers.

      Sounds about as fun as playing Smash Bros Brawl using my DS as a controller. Why..?

      • http://hughisaacs2.googlepages.com/ Hugh Isaacs II

        A friend comes over with a copy of Smash Bros for 3DS and you have the Wii U version but you only have one controller and want to play against each other.

        • 324234

          Which sounds more like confusion regarding no cross-play more than anything. It makes far more sense for you to just to pick up a second controller which would work with the plethora of multiplayer WiiU games than for them to try and code that in.

            “It makes far more sense for you to just to pick up a second controller”

            You mean buy a second controller.

            Super Smash Bros Brawl supported 5 different controllers, I don’t see the problem.

            I loved it, it gave people choice and made it very easy to setup a 4 player match without having to go out and purchase more controllers.

            And lets say they did add the feature.
            If you don’t like it, don’t use it.

          • 324234

            You mean four? Which was only 3 controllers, Wiimote/Nunchuck/Classic/Gamecube. All of which I’m sure you know are native Wii controllers. The 3DS is not a native WiiU controller. As I said, makes about as much sense as using a DS as a controller in Brawl. Not going to happen, buy a pro controller. And yes, that’s what I meant, not literally pick one up off the floor.

          • http://hughisaacs2.googlepages.com/ Hugh Isaacs II

            Wii remote, nunchuck, GameCube controller and then the Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro make two.

            Thus equaling five.

            And I don’t care if it makes sense to you. If I can play Super Smash Bros on the 3DS then Nintendo thinks it makes sense as a controller.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I’m guessing the 3DS one will use both screens for stages right? I understand why and I’m not *raging* planning to get both anyway. (・∀・ )

  • Namuro

    Well, in a way it’s a good thing I think. Since it means that the 3DS one won’t just be a port from the WiiU, and allows for new contents and gimmicks.

    I’m really curious about the connectivity…C’mon and surprise us, Nintendo!

  • Christopher Griego

    Two slightly different games is better to me than the same exact game twice. I’m fine with this.

  • Devinja

    This all but confirms Miis.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Unfortunate, but not unexpected. It’s all the same to me though.

  • epndkempot

    Never play the previous game, but found it so popular and there is Rockman too. Is it really good fighting game?

    • idrawrobots

      its a great fighting/party game

    • http://www.segalization.com/ Kuronoa

      It’s a great fighting game. Those more competitive in the genre will try and tell you otherwise but it is fun and still separates itself from the pack well.

    • Istillduno

      It’s not a fighting game, but it is really fun for what it is.

  • AdhesiveBoy

    A little disappointing, but it would be an incentive to buy both. I’m betting they’ll each have a version-exclusive character.

    • Auvers

      based on the interviews we’ve gotten over the last few days I don’t think that will be the case at all. It seems like different stages.

    • riceisnice

      Yeah, they said both have the same number of characters.

  • $36487238

    Not surprising. I mean, I did see the train level from LoZ: Spirit Tracks in SSB for 3DS while SSB for Wii U had the console levels you just won’t see in the 3DS. So yeah, both won’t cross-play.

    But we’ll just see what they got cooked up.

  • Virevolte

    I don’t see the point of cross-play for that game anyways.

  • wahyudil

    how about story mode?

  • Armane

    But can we import our AC character on 3DS and then export it to Wii U?

  • Pockystix

    considering the different levels, and graphical style, it makes sense

    but at least there is some interactivity between both versions.

  • Julien_N

    As long as there is zero content that must be unlocked by connecting the two versions together, without any alternatives, I am alright with the non-cross-play kind of connectivity between the two versions.

  • King mogz

    Well, as long as they have online multiplayer mode on the 3ds then i’m satisfied.

  • Covnam

    I don’t need cross play, but if I buy both (and having them be different will help in that decision) I’d like to see those system exclusive stages unlocked in the other game as a nice bonus for picking up both.
    Unlocks like characters and the same stages transferring between games would be nice too. Even further, progress for unlocks syncing would be great.

  • http://crono-trigger.tumblr.com/ SilverCrono

    Aww man :( I was kinda looking forward to the possible cross play. But once they outlined some of the differences at E3, I guess it should have been a bit clear how improbable that is.

  • protofox

    PLEASEE let both games have the same physics and gameplay. considering how many tournaments this game will have(like the past 10+ years of smash tourneys), it be great if those on 3DS could fight those on WiiU at events with no issues besides getting use to using a controller instead of a 3DS.

  • Strain42

    Do we have any idea if the two games are going to have exclusive characters?
