It has previously been confirmed by Nintendo president Satoru Iwata that the two upcoming Smash Bros. games for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS are to have some sort of connectivity. However, it was– and frankly still isn’t– quite clear how these two versions will connect. In a recent interview, Masahiro Sakurai, the director of the Smash Bros. series, helped clue us in on how these two versions will interact. As it appears, the 3DS version will allow the player to customize their characters and move them to the Wii U version. Sakurai elaborates:
“Perhaps the best way to think of it is: it’s not the strength of the attacks that change– their power– but the directionality of those attacks will change with customization.”
Interesting, yet not quite clear! Customization could be a huge addition to the Smash Bros. series, so for more news and updates on the newest Smash Bros. titles, stick to Nintendojo! Also, discuss some ideas of how customization may exist in a Smash Bros. game in the comments below!
