You're making a lot of assumptions here.
Namely, why wouldn't Sakurai be involved and why wouldn't it have been an anticipated part of his employment?
I completely plan to buy *both* versions Day 1. I just don't want to be tethered to my TV to play Smash anymore. I imagine I'll play almost exclusively on the 3DS, while the Wii U version will be for local multiplayer, mostly.
Yeah, being a Pokemon and having a single move shared makes them really similar.
When you're getting to the point where unique veterans are getting removed to support the inferior hardware, yes, it's a watered down port.
Okay you see, my thing was with if they were holding back finished characters specifically for Wii U release, which is gross.Tekken Tag Tourny 2 had some preorder DLC stuff that was released FOR FREE later along with other "brand new" characters.
That was cool in an age of Capcom ULTRA DLC re-releases.
If Nintendo is "holding back" characters (they aren't, if there are Wii U release characters, then those characters more than likely just weren't done for the 3DS release), by the time you'd even know of their existance, the game would be out and it would be a legit surprise and nothing you'd be deprived of because you didn't even know it existed until then..
It is like complaining that people are depriving you of your Christmas gifts today.
Bowser Jr and ROB
that's it, then we'll get the "you have all the characters" screen and people can finally shut up lol.
Same. I never wanted the 3DS one and probably won't touch it once Wii U comes out. Like ever.
I'm still doubtful that the 3DS is the reason that Ice Climbers would be cut. The only real problem I can see is keeping 60fps.
