A bit disappointing…
Creator of Super Smash Brothers franchise Sakurai has told NowGamer that it will be quite difficult to get every possible character that ever existed in previous titles of the franchise.
This is what Sakuai had to say regarding trying to add all of the playable characters from previous Super Smash Brothers games:
“I can answer that: no. We don’t have the time to fully recreate every single character who’s been in Smash Bros at this point,” Sakurai explained.
“Adding new characters is not a simple addition – it’s really multiplication. The amount of work, adding a character is multiplied and becomes bigger and bigger as you go. We can’t because of the amount of work it takes. However, I do believe I understand that each character has its own set of fans out there who really like that character.”
“So we’re not going to cut characters out of the way, we’re going to put in as many characters as we can, we really want to do that, because it’s good for the fans and good for all of us. But in the event that we do have to cut some characters, I’d like to apologise in advance to those fans.”
This is quite disappointing to those who were looking forward of playing as their favorite video game characters in the brand new next-generation Super Smash Brothers. I personally find this a sad piece of news because I was a huge fan of the series since the original Super Smash Brothers on the Nintendo 64.
