Having announced the title for both 3DS and Wii U it is fair to say that fans were hoping that they might be able to have cross play. Sadly game director Masahiro Sakurai has stated that due to the different content in each version cross play ‘wouldn’t work’. He did however say that there will be some sort of transferring customized characters between versions of the game. What this means in more detail we don’t know yet.
Though many fans will be rather put off by this news I’m sure it’s not a deal breaker for most. It would of been nice to see but it’s understandable.
