Nintendo: Super Smash Bros ‘coming soon’ on 3DS
Nintendo has decided to celebrate the 3DS’s two year anniversary in North America by releasing a small press release talking about certain things the 3DS has going for it. They talk about how many games are in development and some of the more critically acclaimed games.
There is one thing that stood out to me in their press release and its what games they say are ‘coming soon’. See if you can catch it when you read how Nintendo phrased it:
Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Super Smash Bros., Pokémon X/Pokémon Y
Super Smash Bros for the Nintendo 3DS is classified as coming soon? I doubt Nintendo would accidentally confirm that Super Smash Bros 3D is coming sooner than previously thought via a press release but it isn’t out of the question.
I’ve posted in the past about how I think the 3DS version will release before the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. Yes, Nintendo says the two games will work together and share some stuff but they may not be the same game entirely.
I want to believe that Super Smash Bros is coming soon for 3DS. Since developing 3DS games is typically cheaper and easier than Wii U projects I would wager that we could see it in the near future.
I’m not sure if Smash Bros 3D will hit stores this holiday but if the game isn’t coming out until deep into 2014 why would Nintendo list it as “coming soon”? Either this is a mistake or we’re getting the first handheld Smash Bros soon.
For reference Pokemon X/Y is slated for an October release so Nintendo thinks five months from now counts as “coming soon”.
