Quick Quote: Introducing more non-Nintendo characters will lose the focus of Super Smash Bros. 4

"I think Snake and Sonic joining were fantastic. It made many fans happy, and it broadened the Smash Bros arena, however, introducing more non-Nintendo characters willy-nilly will lose the focus of the game, so I also recognize the need to narrow it down."
Masahiro Sakurai sat down with IGN to discuss the upcoming Super Smash Bros. 4 fighter for the Wii U and 3DS. Sakurai admits that adding third party characters to the Smash series is a fun idea but he also sees it being a detriment to the progress of it. With Namco Bandai at the helm, we may see Tekken characters making the jump whether Sakurai likes it or not.
