In order for Super Smash Bros' sequel to expand beyond the inclusion of simply more content, its producer has stated that the key to the successor will be Wii U and 3DS connectivity.
Masahiro Sakurai told IGN that "there is a certain dead end we come to if we just expand the volume of the game," and that he intends "to change direction a little as we go. The key to that's going to be its dual support for 3DS/Wii U."
Work on the sequel is currently in its early stages, admitted Sakurai, but implementing some sort of connectivity between both the Wii U and 3DS would be a defining factor for the brawler. Nintendo global president Satoru Iwata had also mirrored the producer's enthusiasm for linking the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game.
"I'm really just getting started on this so it's going to take time, but I'll come up with something that uses that link as the game's central axis, so I hope you're looking forward to it," said Sakurai.
Ultimately, when Super Smash Bros' sequel does eventually release, it'll have competition in the form of Sony's own brawler. SuperBot Entertainment recently unveiled PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, a title that undoubtedly bears resemblances with Nintendo's fighter.
