    Default [SSB4 x DLC] Sakurai isn't planning for future paid DLC




    Nintendo currently has no plans to release premium DLC for the Wii U or Nintendo 3DS versions of Super Smash Bros over fears that fans may believe it deliberately held back content from the main game, game designer Masahiro Sakurai has told VideoGamer.com.

However, I think there might be criticism that we are cutting up content to sell characters one by one, or that we are adding things later that should have been there from the start. Creating a single fighter involves a huge investment, and we've already been giving it our all and investing a lot of work in the characters currently available in the game and, I think it’s an incredible package in terms of the sheer amount of content in the game. But it might be that people may not understand and may think that I am not offering enough by just looking at DLC itself. In light of this, we always need to weigh up both sides of this topic and carefully consider whether it really is best to have DLC or not. However, what I can say now about paid DLC is that we aren't working on anything at the moment," "We’ve put all our efforts into making the actual game. Creating DLC would involve large additional costs and require the involvement of a lot of people. I can't yet give you an answer about whether the price would justify the costs and criticisms mentioned above.

    Despite the announcement of the Mewtwo DLC when you register both the 3DS and Wii U version of the game, I can understand why Sakurai feels this way. No one likes to pay more money to get more content, especially when fans wanted their favorite characters in from the beginning.

    I don't really like brawl but that's an awesome move. I hope more companies follow suit.
