Development on Super Smash Bros. 4 Begins, Sakurai Warns It Could Be A Long Wait

Posted By | On 20th, Jun. 2012

Nintendo’s all star mascot brawling series, Super Smash Bros. is due for a new installment. Announced last year at E3 for both the Wii U and the 3DS, the game was conspicuously missing in action this year, something that many attributed to the fact that the game probably hadn’t even begun development yet. Sakurai confirmed, however, that development on Super Smash Bros. 4 has finally begun in earnest.

‘We’ve just taken what you could call the first step of the process. This is the first time I’ve ever had my next project announced before it’s even entered development, and because of that, I fear that players will be forced to wait even longer than they expect to. Please be patient,’ he said.

The wait for Super Smash Bros. Brawl was three years from its initial announcement at E3 2005 to its eventual 2008 release (with numerous delays along the way), and seven, if you count the wait from the time Melee released in 2001. If we go by Brawl’s announcement to release timeframe, we could probably expect SSB4 in 2014, although considering that it’s being made for two systems, and not just one, and that the code will probably be have to rewritten from the ground up, considering both systems are far too different and far superior to the Wii in their capabilities, we may not see the game for quite a while now.

In any case, this will indeed be a long wait. Strap your seatbelts.
