Wii U & 3DS Smash Bros Drawing Development Help from Tekken Team
Katsuhiro Harada, producer behind the long-running fighting franchise Tekken, has acknowledged that developing Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS is a big undertaking for Namco Bandai, the company assigned to develop the game for Nintendo this time around.
Harada went on to explain that there are a number of individuals working on the project right now, even some from the team that developed Tekken.
“Obviously it’s a big priority for the company, so company-wide there are a lot of people involved with that particular project. Not just from Tekken but a lot of our franchises.”
“Although our main core staff is busy with Tekken Tag tournament 2 and trying to finish that up, I do think we’ll support the initiative in some kind of capacity.”
Some have speculated that some Tekken characters will find their way into Nintendo’s multiplayer beat-em up classic – but Harada is hesitant to make such a move.
“We’re not really sure at this moment but when thinking of the playerbase who is playing Smash Bros, maybe Tekken characters is something they wouldn’t want, so I’ve been pulling back on that a bit. But I don’t know.”
Do you want Tekken in your Smash Bros? I don’t.
