Can we get over the notion that Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is just going to be a “throwaway” game for until SSB for Wii U comes out? I’m sick of hearing people talk crap about it all the time.
This isn’t the GBA era where a portable version of a game would basically have nothing in common except the name. 3DS is a more than capable system and unless you’ve been living under a rock since 2011 you aught to know that 3DS has more than proven itself by now.
The Smash Direct a few months back made it very clear that the 3DS game wasn’t going to be just a half-assed cash in, and what was shown at E3 clearly reflects that they’re putting just as much care and effort into it as the Wii U game.
Also, I love the complaints that “They’re making a console game for a handheld.”, they’re not, SSB for 3DS is a handheld game for a handheld system.
I don’t know about you guys, but for me it felt weird beating up Koopa Troopas in Paper Mario: Sticker Star, probably due to the fact that in the Paper Mario universe they established that they’re lots of civilian Koopas who don’t fight for Bowser, a few of them join your party, and the ones that are villains wear cheesy sunglasses.
For some reason they stopped giving the Koopa Troopas sunglasses in Super Paper Mario, so it looks like I’m just beating up random villagers.
I know I stomp on these guys all the time in the Mario platformers, but the context is kind of different there cause everything that moves is out to get you in those games except the rabbits.
