Forums - Nintendo Discussion - SSB - Which version will you be buying?

Which version, and why?

3DS version 23 8.78%
Wii U version 96 36.64%
Both 143 54.58%

Now that the excitement has died down a bit after yesterday's Smash Bros Direct, I wondered after all the discussions we've had, which version people are going to be getting, and why.

I think I'll  be getting both, for two reasons -

1, because we have a 2DS, a 3DS and a Wii U in our family, and all three consoles get a lot of usage on a daily basis.

2, I'm intrigued by something Sakurai was reported to have said back in 2011 about SSB 4

What Sakurai hopes to do is have the 3DS version of Smash Bros. allow players to build up their character through battle and rewards, then take their custom character to the Wii U version to face off against everyone... Iwata summed it the basic idea nicely: players would spend time on the 3DS version, building up their character and collecting stuff, then show off their skills on the Wii U version. Source

This idea could still be on the cards according to the Smash Bros Direct

"...And of course there are going to be elements that link the 3DS and Wii U versions, but I'll tell you about all that at a later date" (03:38)

"This is one of the elements you can use to customise your game: custom movesets.... Customising moves will bring a lot of nuance to the fighters. We'll be telling you much more about this in the future." (30:38 - 30:50)


So, if you are planning on getting SSB, which version will you be getting, and why?

Both, cuz its my favorite franchise of all time, and both will be great

Both cause each has its own exclusive maps and modes.

Both cause I have too much disposable income apparently

both cuz i can

Nintendo's strategy didn't work. I was going to get the Wii U when Smash Bros came out and get Smash on the Wii U day one, but because of this I'm getting the 3DS version and will wait even longer to get a Wii U. They lost money since I'm waiting for a Wii U price drop and the Wii U version only when it goes on sale for around $20.

Well, I just bought Brawl... But I'll get a Wii U eventually, so the Wii U version.

Both... 2 copies of the 3DS version and 1 Wii U version.

Both ~Thank you Stefl1504 for the amazing sig~
