We all know that at Nintendo's 2011 E3 press conference, Reggie Fils-Aime prematurely announced the next game in the Super Smash Bros. series. It was later discovered that development on the game hadn't even began, causing anxious fans to be disappointed as it was obvious a long wait would be inevitable.
Recently, though, Masahiro Sakurai, director of the previous games, commented on the progress of the next title:
Masahiro Sakurai said: "We’ve just taken what you could call the first step of the process. This is the first time I’ve ever had my next project announced before it’s even entered development, and because of that, I fear that players will be forced to wait even longer than they expect to. Please be patient."
The 4th Super Smash Bros. title is expected to be released on both Wii U and 3DS.
