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.
