Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Mewtwo is on his way to Smash

I don't understand all of the complaining about Mewtwo. Let's put it this way:

Which would you prefer?

Mewtwo only being available to those who buy both versions (which might not even be the situation we are in),

or

Mewtwo not existing?

I think the answer is obvious. There is absolutely nothing wrong with companies rewarding their customers for supporting them well.

People like to whine about everything.

We don't even have much information yet and still people are crying over it.

I see it as a nice bonus for people who have both games!



If you're interested in Nintendo content and understand german, maybe you want to take a look at my youtube channel! :)

I'm not really all that upset. Just a little bummed it requires both versions. I have little interest in the 3DS version is all and I'd love to get Mewtwo.

Assuming Mewtwo doesn't get release in any way shape or form if you don't buy both versions, how is ignoring more than half of your fanbase a good thing? What about the millions (literally) of gamers who decide to buy only one version? 

The problem is not Mewtwo existing or not, the problem is how you have to get him.

You're looking at this the wrong way.  Mewtwo is nothing more than a thank you bonus.  He's not an essential part of the game.  If you only buy one version, whichever one it is, you will have a blast regardless.  Making Mewtwo only available to those who buy both does not take away from those who only buy one.

Unless you are either, 1- A hardcore Pokemon fan or 2- A massive Mewtwo fan in Melee, it's a pretty shitty thank you reward if you ask me, you are basically paying $100 (assuming you bought both games at full price) for a single character. It would be better to call this a 'bonus' (a small one at that) rather than a 'thank you' reward.

I go into the second group, that's why this pisses me off so much, since I simple won't buy Smash Bros. for 3DS.

So... you also weren't going to buy SSB WiiU anyway, right?

I was always planning to get the Wii U version only. And still do plan to buy it.

Then, although I understand that your enjoyment of a game isn't separate from the context, and you will have to recognize that some other people can play Mewtwo when you can't, I hope you enjoy it just as much as you would otherwise because it's the exact same game it would have been otherwise. Mewtwo is a thank you, and hopefully may be offered to a wider audience, probably for a small price.
Plus you can always just buy the 3DS version and then sell it, or use a friend's code if anyone's charitable.

Out of curiousity, do you take the same stance regarding pre-order and/or retailer-exclusive DLC?
