The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

New Smash Bros. Campaign Will Be Different Than Brawl's, No Plans For DLC

Posted on Monday, June 17 @ 08:25:24 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


The latest entry in the Super Smash Bros. franchise will feature a campaign unlike the single-player of Brawl.

Game director Masahiro Sakurai told Polygon

There will be a single player [campaign], but it won’t be like the [Subspace Emissary] mode in Brawl.

One thing we can do with the Smash Bros. series that’s unique to us — because we have all these different disparate characters brought together — is we can create that sort of fan-movie experience as a special gift. But now those things are posted on the internet, it doesn’t really become a gift for people who played the game.

What we decided this time around, we’re just going to have [those movies unlocked] from the beginning. We’re going to have a movie for Wii Fit Trainer, The Villager and Mega Man and they’ll be viewable right at the beginning, you can watch those right away.

As far as downloadable content is concerned, Nintendo has no plan to release add-ons at the moment. “Our goal is to have a Smash Bros. that has enough content, in terms of characters and stages, and that’s where all our energies are focused,” Sakurai added.

“There’s no fundamental opposition to downloadable content if it’s something that felt like it worked. We haven’t really decided whether we’re going to do it or not. We’re not opposed to it, we just need to work on completing the full package.”

Would you like to see Nintendo eventually embrace DLC and bring additional characters into the fray? Also, be sure to let us know what you think of the company's decision to go in a different direction with the campaign in the comments below.
