Don't expect Super Smash Bros Wii U to feature more characters on the roster than were in Smash Bros Brawl. For series creator Masahiro Sakurai has said that, in terms of the quantity of content, his team has already reached the limit.
Rather than throwing more characters at Smash Bros Wii U, Sakurai is thinking about a change of direction for the fourth game in the series.
Speaking with Nintendo Power, Sakurai explained why Smash Bros Wii U might not feature a greater number of characters.
"It isn't a matter of 'if the next game has 50 characters, that'll be enough.' There is a certain charm to games that have huge casts of playable characters, but they tend to have issues with game balance and it becomes very difficult to fine-tune each character and have them all feel distinctive.
"In terms of quantity, we've probably already reached the limit of what's feasible. I think a change of direction may be what's needed."
