Sakurai: No DLC Characters in Super Smash Bros. After Mewtwo
Masahiro Sakurai ,the creator of Super Smash Bros., has a lot of thoughts about the game's upcoming Mewtwo release that will take the place of DLC.
Players have been super excited about the return of Mewtwo in Super Smash Bros. In order to snag Mewtwo, you have to register both the Wii U and 3DS versions of Super Smash Bros. on Club Nintendo. Unfortunately, Destructoid reports that Creative Director Masahiro Sakurai really has no other plans for Super Smash Bros. DLC in the imminent future.
"I understand that DLC could add a lot to the appeal of Smash Bros., and I appreciate that a major part of the excitement for these games come from which characters will appear in the roster, so I think fans could really enjoy DLC that could keep this excitement going," Sakurai said, explaining his decision.
"However, I think there might be criticism that we are cutting up content to sell characters one by one, or that we are adding things later that should have been there from the start."
Sakurai also claims that Nintendo doesn't want to do it because it would require a lot of people to work on it and have large costs. Uh, how about charging for the DLC like Nintendo did for Mario Kart 8? It's flip-flopping and decisions like this that has kept Nintendo on a decline over the years. Super Smash Bros. will undoubtedly be the Wii U's number one system seller until the next major Zelda game, but Nintendo doesn't want to do DLC for it? Right...
Either way, if you're excited about the new Super Smash Bros. game you can start playing it tomorrow, Nov. 21, on the Wii U.
