Sakurai says Smash Bros. Wii U spring 2014 release rumor is bogus, new images feature Dr. Wily's Yellow Devil from original Mega Man

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • December 17, 2013 at 7:01 p.m. PST
Rumors were floating around that Super Smash Bros. Wii U would see a release in spring 2014, but the game's director, Masahiro Sakurai, took to the interwebs to let fans know that information was false.

He responded that the game's release date is still simply pegged for 2014, with nothing more specific than that at this time.

Fans of the original Mega Man will be pleased to see the Yellow Demon boss from Dr. Wily's first stage surface though, as there was a fresh round of screen shots made available for the Wii U and 3DS versions. Hit the jump to view them all.

The Yellow Devil in the background switches positions? That's a nice touch. I'll be pretending to dodge the blobs like in MM1 lol.

Well I hope the Wii U keeps going down in price because im not planning to buy one until we get an actual release date and even then probably close to its release. What id really love is Smash Bros Wii U edition.

I know Nintendo wants to take their time to make sure their games are polished but they need to hurry up and get these games out before people stop caring.

Daheq? He's already stated in a video that its coming summer 2014. Idk why he doesn't mention it or how people got the idea it'd come sooner... I think the video is on the eshop actually

I know it's tradition to post these screens every week or whatever but let's see some deeper gameplay videos by now! Nintendo needs to learn how to hype like Capcom does; hype the crap out of the game and then get mysterious for a bit. Nintendo I love you guys but get on the way of streams and awareness of your games. Sometimes I think Nintendo is crazy for not fully understanding this, the Internet age is truly upon us, gotta embrace it. Still hyped on this game but not as much as I was for Street Fighter IV or MvC3.

Not a fan of DK not having any teeth, he looks weird without them.

Also hoping for more characters (Wario, Samus) to be retooled to better represent their respective franchises. Wario has a lot of potential from Wario World Strings and Samus only being restricted to one beam and missles feels so limited.

Thank GOD the Nintendog is back; I don't know what I would have done without the best assist trophy in Brawl coming back for the sequel.

@Mojo

Saying that "Nintendo needs to hurry up" isn't going to solve anything or change the situation. Plus that's a pretty bad example on how to release games, do want this game to become a big disappointment to the point where people would hate this game? Like what happen with Sonic 06, SFXT, SCV, or which ever title that started to rush their development. Besides the release date is still 2014, people will still have to wait and be patient its not like they'd have to wait for years. (like TXSF)

@TagAnarchy, ZaFuuru, Damonta

Uhh... guys, just because this dog looks like Iggy that doesn't mean its actually Iggy. Its just a Nintendog, that dog not some character from an anime which is Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. This Nintendog & Iggy are based off a real-life dog breed known as Boston Terrier.

Megaman is going to be ass in this game. No matter what title his in, the developers always makes him tooo simple of a character.

Please put Zero in the game :(

LOL I'm pretty sure that from what we've seen so far of Megaman he looks pretty ridiculous.
