Smash Bros. Will Go On | Power Up Gaming
Masahiro Sakurai, director of the Smash Bros. Games for Wii U and 3DS, has already stated that there may not be another Smash game after this one. In an interview focusing on the Fire Emblem series and future inclusions in Smash, Sakurai gave a very vague statement that "I don't know whether Fire Emblem will have many more games in the future... Moreover, we don't even know if there'll be another Smash game." That may sound like he plans on kicking both series into the furnace, but consider this: Nintendo representatives have made tons of vague statements about their games, some outright misleading (though usually as a well-intentioned joke). For example, Aonuma teasing that the character shown in one of the Zelda Wii U trailers might not be Link. Smash Bros. was good. But Melee showed the world that Smash was so much more than just some characters duking it out. Melee was a promise that Smash Bros. would grow and evolve alongside the franchises it represented.
