Masahiro Sakurai, creator of the Super Smash Bros. series, has shared new information concerning the story mode of Super Smash Bros. 4 for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. According to a post made on the official Smash Bros. Miiverse page from Jan. 20, Sakurai has explained one of the key differences made to the single-player story mode of Super Smash Bros. 4 on 3DS.

Though the accompanying screenshot doesn’t reveal much, Sakurai goes on to explain that the Subspace Emissary story mode found in Super Smash Bros. Brawl on Nintendo Wii will not be featured in Super Smash Bros. 4 for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

In fact, Super Smash Bros. 4 will not feature a story mode like Subspace Emissary at all. Find Sakurai’s full explanation below:

Pic of the day. Where am I……?? To be clear, the new Super Smash Bros. games do not feature a story mode like The Subspace Emissary.

With the removal of Subspace Emissary from Super Smash Bros. 4, it may mean the return to the more classic Adventure Mode found in Super Smash Bros. Melee, which had the player battle opponents on different stages in order to progress.

Hopefully we hear more details on the story mode of Super Smash Bros. 4 in the coming weeks.

Super Smash Bros. 4 is expected to release for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS in 2014. No release has been announced at this time.
