You would be forgiven for thinking that with the release of Super Smash Bro. for Nintendo 3DS and the upcoming release of the Wii U version, creator Masahiro Sakurai’s work would be finished. When asked by a fan how it felt to be done with their development in his column in Weekly Famitsu, however, he replied that work was very much still ongoing.

Despite the fact that the game is set to be released in under two months, very little has been said about how the Wii U version will differ from the 3DS game. In addressing the connectivity between the two versions, Sakurai stated that “if you have the 3DS version of Smash Bros. you will be able to use your 3DS as a controller for the Wii U version” and that players could share  customized fighters and Mii Fighters between the two versions of the game.

He added that an announcement– possibly via a Nintendo Direct– was currently in the works which would highlight the exclusive features of the Wii U version and would show the “true potential of Smash Bros.

While it seems to be just a tease of what is yet to come, Sakurai also revealed the following image on Miiverse yesterday which hints at one new mode in particular:

It looks like we will have to wait for that looming announcement to hear more.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is scheduled for release in the US on November 21, in Europe on December 5, and in Japan and Australia on December 6.
