That's not how it works. Think how much more time and resources they'd have: no 3DS version probably meant no cuts, 5+ newcomers more, everyone from Melee returning and a shitload of other modes.

I don't think that's how it works, either.

That's not necessarily how it works either. I'm sure both games had their own separate budgets.

Lol nah it would if happened anyway >.>

I mean Nintendo will support the Wii u to the end. ... You talk as if Nintendo won't make AAA Zelda (which I'm sure has a way bigger budget then smash etc) Wii u because it didn't sell.
Oh wait.
Except that the 3DS version will destroy it in sales by more than 5 to 1.

Since when are gamers not selfish in their desires? Like, first world problems? Talking about videogames can't be that altruist, a guy can hope anything.

I've been out of the loop due to classes, what's the situation on characters that weren't in the leak/is Ridley (de)confirmed?

Doesn't seem so obvious to me. They have been in Smash for a while, but they are from a kinda crappy NES game, and maybe it was just time for them to go?

This ridiculous belief that Ice Climbers was taken out due to hardware issues needs to stop being taken as fact...

Well, Sakurai himself lends credence to the theory.

Sakurai did tell me that “multiple character” combatants like the Ice Climbers were proving a technical challenge on the 3DS.

So why is it ridiculous exactly?

Nobodies forcing themselves to believe anything. How about not making assumptions about how somebody thinks online. Might make you sound a little more credible.

While Sakurai didn't directly say the ice climbers, and a journalist threw out their name, he did say he was worried about the 3DS limitations making some characters difficult to implement. So OBVIOUSLY the conclusion comes to the most resource consuming character in the game which is the Ice Climbers. Don't try to play me.



Crappy is subjective. It's time for them to go because they are technically draining on the hardware. If Sakurai comes out and says that it wasn't due to the system that they are cut, then I'll take it back, but until then, I'll go with what he has said which is that some characters may be difficult to add into the game.
I guess by this assumption Pichu, Roy, Wolf, Lucas and Mewtwo are also too technically difficult for the 3DS to process which is why they're not in this game but Dr. Mario is.

lol

Wat

This game started as 3ds only...

And what the fuck? Historically? Dude this is only the fourth smash game. And as much of a fan as you are I'm sorry but not a single entry was made specifically for you. This is sakurais baby as much as any other entry. Smash is whatever he says it is. Forever.

Source?

I don't think I'm in the wrong using historically given Smash 64 came out in 1999. That's longer than some of the biggest IPs in gaming today.

This is complete speculation. You have no idea what would or would not have been included. Would it have been cool all that? Oh yeah, but it most certainly would not have happened.

Not. Iwata probably has more control.

EDIT: Bowser Jr time!


Yeah but I doubt he ever uses it? Pretty positive sakurai is given free reign on smash ??

And maybe I'm wrong but I could have sworn there was something with samurai stating that smash 4 at one point could have been only a 3ds title?

I'm upset that IC are gone too...but to be disappointed that a big Nintendo franchise made it to a nintendo handheld...and its only the fourth entry its not exactly breaking a tradition.

They built two games from the ground up instead of one.

That's not necessarily how it works either. I'm sure both games had their own separate budgets.

But time can't be bought, no matter the budget.

Don't get me wrong, the roster is hype, but I could've done without the 3DS OR WIIU version, if it meant more stuff.

I wish these people won't get a version of a game so I can play with ONE character out of 50 or so that MIGHT have been cut due to that version.


You don't see how selfish that sounds?

Believe me I am looking forward to the Wii U version more too but I am able to take the L if more people get to play the game essentially w/ the 3DS version.


They can have both, just do away with the roster parity rubbish.

What's selfish is wanting the version on the more powerful console to have the exact same roster as the weaker handheld.


It's not as if any of this discussion matters anyway, it's already happened.

Dude, you both have things you want that would cut something another person wants. Some people would rather be able to play Smash on the 3DS, some would rather be able to play as the Ice Climbers. No need to call someone selfish when your desire and his can't coexist, especially when you actually got what you wanted.

After finally seeing Bowser Jr. and Duck Hunt Dog somewhat in real action (not to mention Shulk and other newbies), this is by and far the greatest character selection we've ever had. So many fantastic additions. The cuts always hurt, but it's great anyways.
