Creator Masahiro Sakurai stated that talk about a new Smash Bros. between Iwata and himself begun as soon as Brawl was released. Sakurai came to the conclusion that a Smash Bros. title was needed for the 3DS. Then Iwata talked to him about the WiiU and Sakurai decided that it would be necessary for a Smash Bros. on both systems. However, Sakurai does not want to just expand the character roster, add more levels and enhance the graphics and call it a day. Instead, he wants to give players something different. For example, the 3DS version will have players battling and building their character up with battle rewards and the reason being for this is because the 3DS is personal, portable system. The charcter can then be transferred over to the WiiU version of the game. Previous versions of Smash Bros. have never had any form of creating and leveling a character up, which could entitle players into liking the idea, and absolutely hating it. Of course, these are just plans and thoughts on for the new Smash Bros. Also, Sakurai stated that in previous iterations, the character balancing was done by him. He now plans on having the task of balancing to his team, which to be honest, is great news. Hopefully there will be more to come in regards to Smash Bros.
