Super Smash Bros. Wii U & 3DS gets new screen, single-player suspected

Monday, 20th January 2014 12:09 GMT By Dave Cook

Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS director Masahiro Sakurai has posted another new image from the game online, and it appears to show the fighter’s single-player campaign, despite confirmation that Brawl’s Subspace Emissary will not return.

Sakurai posted the screen on MiiVerse, and it looks like this:

We’re not sure what this environment is supposed to be, but as CVG suggests, this does look suspiciously like a single-player image. Could there be a smaller solo offering that Subspace on the cards?

What do you think?

Meanwhile, we’ve got screens of Kirby’s nemesis King Dedede in action.

    I thought Sakurai said there would not be a Sub-Space Emissary this time?

    @1 It’ll likely to just be the traditional mode of the previous games, which mixed up fairly light platforming levels with one on one fights.

    @1 & 2 yeah, single-player doesn’t necessarily mean a full campaign, a few folk on Twitter debunked the story above for the same reason.

    I’d be very surprised if there’s no solo play in the new Smash, even if it’s a little training mode or something.

    Yeah, I guess so.

    Shame for all its faults Sub-Space Emissary was actually quite enjoyable. Flicking between bonkers pairs of Nintendo character like Samus and Pikachu.

    @3 It’ll be definitely more than that. The previous games had arcade modes, but they weren’t just straight up one-on-one battles. They had some platforming levels mixed in as well. Nothing on the scale of Subspace Emissary of course.
