New Super Smash Bros will have Namco Bandai involvement

Alongside the 3DS XL and Animal Crossing 3DS info released during Nintendo Direct, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata announced that the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game currently in the works for 3DS and Wii U will be co-developed between Project Sora, Namco Bandai and Namco Bandai Studios.

The former company is helmed by Masahiro Sakurai, the designer of Brawl, and the latter two companies are known for their Tekken and Soulcalibur fighting franchises. Two Namco individuals in particular were singled out: Go Vacation developer Masaya Kobayashi and Tales series director, Yoshito Higuchi.

Sakurai believes the new Super Smash Bros games, which are currently in the prototype stage, "looks pretty good, and it's working great."

In addition, Kobayashi has expressed his enthusiasm for the collaboration project: "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!"

So what will this interesting collaboration offer? Will this facilitate Namco characters like Pac-Man or Lloyd Irving to make an appearance? Right now, Sakurai's lips are sealed: "I would love to provide more information, but for now, I'm going to stay quiet until I have something solid to show you."
