Sakurai wants to show off both versions

Masahiro Sakurai has said that he wants to show off Smash Bros 3DS as well as Smash Bros Wii U at E3 2013.

Satoru Iwata announced that the first Smash Bros Wii U screenshots would be revealed at E3 in June this year but now Sakurai, the creator of the Nintendo's fighting series, has tweeted that he wants to showcase the handheld version of the game as well.

Little is known about Smash Bros Wii U and 3DS but Sakurai has said that that the key to the games will be the link between the pair.

Back in April 2012, Sakurai said: "I'll come up with something that uses that link as the game's central axis, so I hope you're looking forward to it."
