Nintendo Thought About Porting Smash Bros Melee to Wii

I never cared for Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Can you believe that Nintendo considered porting Smash Bros. Melee to the Wii? It doesn’t even make sense because early and the most common Wii’s were backwards compatible with the GameCube.

According to the director, Masahiro Sakurai:

“I had already gone freelance, and had I turned the work down, they might have left Smash Bros. Melee’s 26 fighters completely untouched and simply rereleased the game as-is for the Wii. That’s what Mr. Iwata once told me.”


At least the game wasn’t $70.

What would you have preferred; a Wii port of Super Smash Bros. Melee or a new game?
