Didn't they say something about 2014 or even 2015? Anyways, I would also love if the game came out next year already. And they really need such games to farther sell Wii U consoles when Xbox720 and PS4 come out. Especially since the Zelda game for Wii U will probably not release until 2014 and the only other 2 games we (or at least I) know about, that are in development, are another 3D Mario game and an until now unknown game developed by Retro Studios.
These games are probably my most anticipated 3DS and Wii U games as of date. Seriously, this will be the first Smash Bros game in high defenition (Wii U) and the first portable Smash Bros game (3DS) ever. But the question is, how will it look and how well will the gameplay be? Regardless of those and other questions gamers might have, I personally have faith that these two titles will be a (smash) hit with both consoles. There are rumors out there of what the 3DS and Wii U versions will be like, but again, rumors.
Also, it's been at least 3 years since the new Smash Bros game was announced back at E3 2010, and for gamers, that can be torture, especially when the director of Smash Bros was in the middle of making Kid Icarus: Uprising (which is a fun game, btw). Still, I suppose we can wait a little longer. My guess is that it will be ready by Holiday 2013 at the earliest, but we can only hope.
Anyway, what would you like to see in the next Smash Bros game?
