Rumour: Next Smash Bros. Could Be Called 'Universe'
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Game not actually in development, though
After the peculiar 'unveiling' of a new Smash Bros. title at E3 2011, after which it was hastily shot down, we've become wary of any so-called news about the next entry in the series. Nevertheless, a rumour is worth sharing, even if the actual game is still, potentially, years away.
There have been leaked images of what is supposedly a concept document for the next entry in the series, suggesting that the title will be 'Universe', utilising the 'U' from the Wii U branding. It's an interesting name, though Nintendo are refusing to comment, and series boss Masahiro Sakurai had this to say via Twitter yesterday:
"I'm currently concentrating on one title, Kid Icarus. Until this wraps up, Smash Bros. will not progress. Of course, characters have not been decided at all."
The game may be years away and the scanned document may not be real, but why should that stop fevered speculation? What do you think of the 'Universe' title?
