Sakurai: Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS will continue to be improved online, but no further balane patches
The online experience in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS will continue to be improved. However, director Masahiro Sakurai has indicated that there will not be any additional balance patches.
Sakurai told Famitsu in this week’s issue:
—In the future, do you plan on adjusting or balancing the game further through a patch?
Sakurai: We don’t have any such plans, but at the very least we will be working on a few things connected to the online play experience, bit by bit.
If we were to do something like tweak characters’ customized special moves, then there’d be no end to it. But with that said, if there are any glaring issues, we may address them.
—That’s because with customized special moves or items, you can only play with them enabled online with players who are in your friends list, isn’t that right?
Sakurai: When playing with your personal friends, I think it’s probably more interesting that you can almost cheat a little through customizing your character. *Laughs*
