Does anyone here know if the Nintendo Sound Group in Kyoto is involved for the music for SSB U? That group has created such impressive range of live-based music (Mario Galaxy, Galaxy 2, Mario 3D World, Mario Kart 8) now, that I personally see it difficult for an external music department to replace them and produce the music at the level as the recent titles (3D World and Mario Kart 8 in particular).

Recording live-based music for SSB U could be one of the (many) explanations for the later release of SSB U compared to SSB 3DS. Even if the SSB U music used has been composed for earlier existing Nintendo titles, arranging/orchestrate the music for live musicians, record it and mix it takes much more time and resources than an electronical-only soundtrack.

But this is just my own theory. Perhaps this has already been discussed? I think Nintendo's biggest competitor regarding computer game music now is themselves.

Current Top 10: DK:TF, Pikmin 3, MK8, Stealth Inc. 2, Scram Kitty, SM3DW, LEGO City: Undercover, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Bayonetta 1+2, SSB U
Looking forward to:
Affordable Space Adventures, X, Hex Heroes, Yoshi's Woolly World, Splatoon, Zelda U, and more
