Smash Bros. lacks cutscenes because they'll end up online

0

That doesn't mean story mode's going anywhere

Anyone eager to see their favorite Nintendo characters interact with one another in a cinematic capacity in the new Super Smash Bros. should begin preparing for disappointment right now. CG cutscenes won't be included in either the Wii U or 3DS versions of the game.

Creator Masahiro Sakurai wrote in his column on Famitsu that because the Super Smash Bros. Brawl cutscenes ended up being uploaded to the Internet, they wouldn't be included in the newest iteration. "You can only truly wow a player the first time he sees [a cutscene]. I felt if players saw the cutscenes outside of the game, they would no longer serve as rewards for playing the game, so I've decided against having them," Sakurai commented.

The omission of cutscenes doesn't equate to a lack of single-player campaign, however. Nintendo has already confirmed that Super Smash Bros. will have a single-player campaign, but it'll be different than Brawl's Subspace Emissary, without cinematics tying together the entire experience.

In a way, it's kind of admirable that Sakurai's sticking to his guns with his beliefs regarding the cutscenes. However, it'll be probably be 2014 by the time his game comes out. Concern that video from his widely distributed media will end up on the Internet is something that he should've accepted about a decade ago.
