We’ve known for a while that there was going to be a new Smash Bros. game on both the Wii U and 3DS, but we haven’t known exactly what they’ll be called. Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed what the subtitles for both of these games is going to be, and if you were hoping that they would be something catchy, you might find yourself just a little bit disappointed. On the Wii U, Smash Bros. is going to be running with the moniker Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. Over on the 3DS, it’ll be known as Super Smash Bros. for 3DS. Nothing groundbreaking here, but at least people will immediately know what version you’re talking about.
Further, Sakurai has announced that there will be no cross-play between the two versions, because they will each include completely different stages. This seems like a missed opportunity for Nintendo, but at least they were completely open about it. There will be some kind of interaction available for the titles, though: customized characters from the 3DS version will be able to be sent to the Wii U version. Just what these customization are, though, wasn’t revealed, save that they won’t be alternative costumes.
Oh, Nintendo. Playing coy, are we? Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS are set to release in 2014.
