For many gamers, the deciding factor for whether they should purchase a Wii U or not is the selection of games that will be available. Nintendo, after all, can always rely on its stable of exclusive titles to sell hardware. Though the game itself may still be several years away, it looks as if Nintendo may already have a title for the next game in the Smash Bros. series. A leaked internal document denotes changes expected in the next iteration of the game and gives us a title: Super Smash Bros. Universe.
The document in question goes on to describe changes being made for Super Smash Bros. Universe, including more more third-party characters like those introduced Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and the removal of Prat Falling, which can to hinder tournaments by introducing a chance of falling while performing an attack. Additionally, changes are being made to Samus Aran so that her speed matches her abilities in Metroid: Other M.
Of course, it’s entirely possible the document has been faked — and it’s especially suspicious given the granularity of the details found within — but we have to admit that the name and logo definitely look believable. Take a look at the document below and see what you think. Fake or legit?
Game Rant has already put together a list of what we would like to see in the next Super Smash Bros., including more third-party characters and downloadable content. Hopefully there’s going to be even more changes to be coming to Super Smash Bros. Universe. The addition of third-party characters in Smash Bros. Brawl was great, and expanding the roster further sounds that much better. If Nintendo can make a better balanced game with more original characters, Super Smash Bros. Universe could be a huge selling point for their forthcoming hardware.
What do you think of the Super Smash Bros. Universe title? Are you happy to hear that Prat Falling will be removed?
