New 'Super Smash Bros' headed to Nintendo 3DS, Wii U this year Nintendo has revealed narrower time frames for the release of the new Super Smash Bros on its consoles.
The company revealed more info during a 39-minute Nintendo Direct presentation earlier this week.

Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai confirmed that the 3DS version will be released ahead of its console counterpart, with the handheld game reaching shelves over the summer compared to the Wii U version hitting sometime during the winter.

Between the game, there will be some differences, most notably the stages. Additionally, the 3DS will have a 'Smash Run' mode, but the rosters are completely the same.

There will most likely be added features for the Wii U console given its later date and to incentivize gamers to possible wait for it.

The delay gap sucks but also makes sense in a way so gamers that have both systems can get one and play it for a while and still have the excitement for the game when the enhanced console version with some different features is released few months later.

Nintendo said Winter 2014 so I am thinking a late November release even though that is not officially Winter.

Hopefully they will have more than that but I suspect if there is we will not find out before E3. Nintendo is really struggling right now so they better get their act together
