Forget Snake. The press needs to ask why Sakurai cut Offline Tournaments from Wii U.
Unless he's saving it for the NX port maybe?
YES. This is a way bigger issue for me. That and the lack of a single player story mode like SSE from Brawl, or even Adventure mode from Melee would've been fine. The replacements (Smash Tour and Smash Run, though I liked the latter for a quick play here and there) just didn't hold up for me at all, and I don't think this is an unpopular opinion.
