Time to settle it

One of Mario Kart 8's most amusing features was the ability to upload replays to YouTube so you can share your epic wins and dismal fails with the wider world. It would appear that there were similar plans for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, but the feature was cut prior to launch.

Evidence of the cut was found by a NeoGaf user while browsing The Cutting Room Floor:

Convert the replay data into a video and post it? This requires a Google account.

Cancel the conversion process?
Download?
Download complete. To see it, go to Í and then Í.
Download and save?
Replays you've downloaded can be found in the Vault.
By connecting to Nintendo Network, you can send your replay to friends or show it off to the world.
Whom do you want to share this with? Data will be sent to the following number of people: .
Is this OK?
Sent.

Of course, there's every chance that Nintendo may activate this feature in a future update - after all, Smash is getting some pretty big improvements over the next year or so. Would you like to see YouTube uploads in the game? Let us know by posting a comment.
