Sakurai explains why Wii U owners have to wait for Smash Bros.

According to Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai, Wii U owners have a longer wait over 3DS owners due to the intense debugging process required before the release of a game.

“Checking is done both domestically and overseas, so for a game like Smash Bros., several hundred people are employed.” Sakurai explained. “So, debugging alone becomes a huge project. So much so that one of the biggest reasons for the separate release dates for the 3DS and Wii U versions was so that we could shift the debugging periods.”

While we all await with bated breath for the release on Smash Bros. for Wii U, we do have the 3DS release coming up on September 13 (Japan), October 3 (North America and Europe), October 4 (Australia).

Now they can create levels, share them and battle with other players across multiple platforms! This is great, not only for Nintendo gamers, but for gaming in general.”
