That's what Kojima thinks
Solid Snake, one of two third-party characters from Super Smash Bros. Brawl, isn't likely to make an encore in the upcoming Wii U and 3DS Smash Bros. At least, that's according to his creator.
As reported by Go Nintendo, Hideo Kojima thinks that fans shouldn't get their hopes up to see Snake's inclusion in the next Smash Bros. title. "I'm not working on that game, but I don't think it's likely (Snake will return)," Kojima commented.
However, that isn't to say that the Metal Gear developer wouldn't like to see it happen again. Kojima went on to say "If Mr. Sakurai is watching this, hopefully we see Snake."
