Namco Bandai Developing Smash Bros Wii U and 3DS

During the Nintendo Direct presentation tonight in Japan, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata announced that Namco Bandai will be the head of development for the next Super Smash Brothers title, under direct supervision from longtime series head Masahiro Sakurai.

The game’s director will be Yoshito Higuchi, who recently worked on Tales of Vesperia. No other information was announced besides this.

Well, that means one thing, and one thing only: who’s ready for Mario vs Pac-Man?!
