Sequel to Super Smash Bros. in the works? Job posting says release next year for 'Smash Bros. 6'

Something interesting is afoot with the Super Smash Bros. franchise, but what exactly is happening isn't readily clear at this moment.

A recruitment ad was recently posted on a Japanese career opportunity website, e-Career FA, searching for programmers for "Smash Bros. 6" which was listed for a 2015 release date.

The page was subsequently taken down, but not before Game Jouhou secured a screen shot of the job offerings.

The listing noted that this project currently has 120 people working on it, but they expect that number to increase to 200. It also said that:

Social games are currently a big hit, but the current state of job opportunities for making retail games is critically low. In the midst of this, this will likely be your only chance to be part of a development project for the Smash Bros. [series], which has surpassed a total of 10 million in worldwide sales. And Bandai Namco believes that now is the best time to recruit programmers for retail games.

Decapre intended to appeal to newcomers in Ultra Street Fighter 4, will have 'substantial story'

Ultra Street Fighter 4's development team sees the addition of Decapre as something that will appeal to newcomers, Capcom's Tomoaki Ayano recently told Siliconera.

"We wanted to introduce a character that would interest newcomers, which is why we went with charge moves," he said.

"In fact, charge characters were originally conceived as a way to bring a second style of play to users who were after a simpler control scheme. This hasn't changed since the era of Blanka, Chun-Li, and Guile as they appeared in Street Fighter 2.

"She has a move called the Rapid Dagger that is executed by repeated button presses, for instance. She's actually rather easy to control and I think she'll prove to be enjoyable for users of all skill levels," Ayano said.

Ease of use wasn't the only thing the developers were aiming for with Decapre though. Hit the jump to continue reading.
