Tekken development team to make next Super Smash Bros.

During Nintendo’s streaming-video series, Nintendo Direct, the Japanese publisher announced that Namco Bandai will be primarily responsible for the development of the next Super Smash Bros. game which it is developing simultaneously for the Wii U and the 3DS. Nintendo’s Masahiro Sakurai, who was the lead producer on the previous Smash Bros. games, will return to take the reins on this production.

“The prototype prepared by Namco Bandai Studios’ special team looks pretty good, and it’s working great,” Sakurai wrote in a statement on Nintendo.com. He stressed that the game is only just now entering development, so fans are going to have to be patient.

Hello, I'm Masahiro Sakurai, the director of the Super Smash Bros. series.

It's my personal belief that the only time a creative product really resonates is in that first moment when it's actually in front of you.

With that said, I've realized that if we keep the new Super Smash Bros. title's development structure secret, it'll only create more and more speculation, and I won't be able to develop the game with any freedom. That's why I've decided to announce this news right now, even though it's still very early on.



Hello, everyone. I'm Masaya Kobayashi of NAMCO BANDAI Studios. I'm so honored to be able to join the Smash Bros. team--that globally popular series of which Japan is particularly proud—and to work alongside of Mr. Sakurai.

In order to make Mr. Sakurai proud, we will take on this project with NAMCO BANDAI's best staff! Yoshito Higuchi, the producer and the director of the "Tales" series, Tetsuya Akatsuka, producer and director of "Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs.," the art director/sound director of the "SoulCalibur" series, as well as the main development team staff from the "TEKKEN" series…and that's just for starters. All the top creators from NAMCO BANDAI are gathered here to create a never-before-seen dream team for this project. We will fully utilize our experience and knowledge in action/fighting game development, technical capability, and organizational strength, and we hereby promise you that we will develop the best and most powerful "Super Smash Bros." title ever! Don't miss it!

    I wonder what this means for Tekken X Street Fighter. Seems like the development on that game has already been mad slow. Luckily Tekken Tag Tournament 2 drops in 2 months.

    Anyway, Tekken characters, Soul Calibur characters, Dark Souls characters, Tales characters, Naruto characters, Dragonball Z Characters, Mobile Suit Gundam characters, Pac-Man confirmed for next Smash Bros.

    Tekken x SF will never be released.

    They used CAPCOM to get free advertising for Tekken. Capcom took the bait and ended up promoting Namco's characters for free...... and the game flopped hard in sales.

    Namco will brush their hands of the situation and move on like nothing happened.

    Oh, yea...overall. Because Tekken has 9 or 10 games to Brawls 3. But pound for pound, Smash sells more and hasn't already peaked like Tekken. And Brawl is the highest selling Fighter of all time.

    Street Fighter X Tekken has sold about 1.4 mill since it was released in March, hardly a flop when you consider UMVC 3 came out in November 2011 and is stuck at like 600k.

    But I do agree Tekken X SF is never coming out, even Ono himself said he thinks it's never coming out.

    I knew exactly what you were getting at, I just wanted to undermine that stupid statement. 🤬 aint playing smash in the fgc, they're in their own little bubble(granted that may change with namco at the helm). Just calling smash the greatest selling fg FRANCHISE of all time is 🤬 laughable, since it's being a fighting game is up for debate and it being the highest selling franchise is 🤬 .

    *sighs*...why do yall always get so mad? LOL. Its like, the littlest facts just set certain people off.

    Its a fighting game. It is what it is. Smash has been played competitively before, and even if it hadn't..who cares? There are a bunch of great, fun, fighting games that were never in tournaments. Tournaments are not the end all be all to fighting games and never have been. That is the only genre of gaming that has this silly mentality from a vocal minority. LOL.

    Nintendo is so creative that they need another dev to bring new ideas to their franchise.

    Nintendo has frequently farmed out their franchises to third parties since the SNES era. Capcom, Namco, SEGA, Square Enix, Team Ninja, etc. This is nothing new.

    Yea, it's a huge 🤬 flop. 🤬 deserves to flop though. Don't know how capcom couldn't capitalize off two of the biggest fighting game titans colliding. Capcom is 🤬 wack.

    Street Fighter X Tekken is a good game.

    Some of the decisions made around the game was indeed 🤬 , disc locking a big chunk of the roster,buggy ass online play,nickel and diming for costume colors and other stupid little 🤬 , but the game itself is a good game.

    It seems like 🤬 just hate on the game cause Capcom IS on that 🤬 with it....But all that 🤬 they doing with SFXTK they been doing this 🤬 since Street Fighter IV, they just took it to the extreme with SFXTK.

    @focus ..... wait fam it's sold more than SFII tho ? I thought SFII had the crown ?

    Anyways, this is dope news. Nintendo AND the Tekken team working together. If this 🤬 will really have mobile suit and DBZ characters then this might be one of the best fighting games of all time.....

    Nintendo is always pushing the envelop and has always been #1 in innovation. I can't wait to see how this comes about. After Sony bit their whole game set up they had to switch it up now we just need pics LOLOL.

    All that that Sion mentioned. If they put Sonic and a few other characters from the Sonic franchise (Knuckles, Shadow) then this game will own the industry.

    Yo Sonic is my favorite mascot of all time, if they put Sonic and all his bredgrens in this game I swear to 🤬 fam...... I'd weep tears of joy LOLOL. Sonic wasn't too good in Brawl so hopefully they make him dope as 🤬 in this one.

    Iuno fam, I think it was just rushed. Tatsunoko vs. Capcom didn't sell all that well but no one denies its critical acclaim and dope gameplay. Iuno bout a mil being a flop tho LOLOL. Some of the best selling Final Fantasies seen numbers a bit lower than that..... *shrugs*
