Miyamoto reconfirms Smash Bros. for Wii U for 2014

Posted on February 1, 2014 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Podcast Stories, Wii U

During the Q&A portion of Nintendo’s investor briefing held earlier in the week, Shigeru Miyamoto reconfirmed that Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will launch this year. Miyamoto didn’t mention the 3DS version in his response, in case you’re wondering. I don’t think it’s worth making much of yet, but it’d be interesting if the two versions had separate launches.

    I think it is safe to say that it will be a case of Wii U this year 3ds early next year after xmas or later.

    I am excited that they are pushing for a 2014 release (at least on the Wii U), but I hope that they do not sacrifice quality just to have the game out this year. I know it sucks to wait for the games sometimes, but one thing that I admire (and appreciate) about Nintendo is that they take their time to make the games as polished as possible before releasing them.

      They should hurry up, you know, because Wii U is dying -_-

        I agree to a point. Yes, Nintendo needs to release several high profile games this year to help rebuild momentum for the Wii U. In a way, they are releasing games in the next few months that should sell well, and should move hardware units (DKC:TF later this month, and Mario Kart 8 in May). One of the things that hurt the Wii U last year was the drought of games, especially during the first half of the year.
        However, rushing games just to release them earlier can actually do a disservice to Nintendo. Nintendo games tend to be thorough, complete, and well polished before they hit shelves, and it is that quality that attracts many people to Nintendo games. If Nintendo starts sacrificing that quality just to push a game out at a certain time, the games will start to lose some of the value in the eyes of fans and the general gaming public.
        Also, I am not sure of the exact sales numbers for the Super Smash Bros. series, but it is a game that appeals more to the “hardcore” audience than the “casual” gaming community, so that game may not move as many units as DKC:TF or Mario Kart 8. That said, it will help those undecided “hardcore” gamers to finally get a Wii U 🙂
        Perhaps the best thing is for Nintendo to take their time on each game, and continue to produce the high-quality Nintendo games, while having a steady stream of game releases throughout the year.
        By the way, I respect your opinion, and it was not me that down-voted you.

          Iwata mentioned that Mario Kart 8 will not be a one off release for Wii U in order to regain a short burst of sales increases. This to me indicates that they are ready (or at least at this point they think they are) to release titles more frequently.

          We know that Mario Kart 8 is coming in May. I expect Nintendo to release a high profile title at the very least every two months after Mario Kart 8 and release more digital titles and VC titles on eShop.

            Sounds like they are ready indeed 🙂 Thank you for sharing!
