Probably the worst reason they could possibly come up with.

Why would they remove a feature of the game because of youtube videos? Should you remove all cutscenes in a story-driven videogame because they will be uploaded to youtube???

Good thing I did not get a WiiU! The most promising games are looking worse and worse!

You've really got to wonder if this is just an excuse to cut Story Mode in order to rush development of the game.

I think you're right.

It makes sense from a development standpoint. The key thing for a game like that is getting the core game play set up. Character's with their different abilities, different environments, items etc were blatantly given the most resource in development, due to them being the most important aspects.

They may have encountered some issues with some of the core game play, so spent more time on it then they expected.

As a Developer myself, I've had many times where some features haven't made it in to the first deployment due to unexpected issues with other parts of the system.

On the other side, if he's genuinely being serious with the cut scene thing... Wow. Does he not want the free advertising that comes with people uploading your stuff to youtube.com ?

Why are all of these game compaines making bad ideas?

Microsoft = XBone
Nintendo = Reason Above
Sony = N/A

This does suck though. I loved the Subspace Emissary, it's a real shame that Nintendork had to take it away,

(Still a Nintendork fanboy though

What a stupid excuse. It's a players choice if they want to go on Youtube and spoil the story mode for themselves. Most people won't do that because they like to bomb through the story mode in the first few days before heading into the online realm.

Look at what Sakurai actually said. While very dumb, it only says cutscenes. He nowhere says "We're removing story mode".


But tbh, this is bullshit nonetheless. Idiotic decisions are idiotic decisions. His reasoning is downright horrible and I hope he is no longer the direct of Smash Bros or any series after this. Seriously. He needs to take a minute after smash bros comes out, and STOP TO LEARN HOW TO NOT MAKE HORRIBLE DECISIONS. WHAT THE *bleep* DUDE. Seriously, did he even *bleep*ing consult anyone about this? This is bullshit. He is turning into a downright idiot. Why would he make so a *bleep*ing horrible decision? YouTube? GOD. PLEASE. That's like saying,

AW MAN MY FRIEND SHOWED ME ONE PAGE IN THIS BOOK I WAS GONING TO READ I GUESS IT'S SPOILED FOREVER NOW AND I WILL NEVER EXPERIENCE IT THE SAME AGAIN. BOOOOO HOOOOOOO.
If any of his idiocy leaks into ANY other series, Nintendo or not, I hope they do horribly.

That pretty much sums it up. No reason to start freaking everybody out. Anyway, there were no cutscenes in the first two games.

bluexy, you really should edit the title of this thread, or you're going to make a lot of people rage about nothing.

If there aren't any cut scenes, but there is story mode, wouldn't it be like melee story mode?
