Sakurai has just informed Nintendo Power that he is in the first step of making the new Super Smash Bros. game. The bad thing about this is that they announced this game last year before he even started working on it and that would mean we all will have longer to wait. The game will be made for the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U, hopefully with the connectivity features that were explained last year.
“We’ve just taken what you could call the first step of the process. This is the first time I’ve ever had my next project announced before it’s even entered development, and because of that, I fear that players will be forced to wait even longer than they expect to. Please be patient.”
