Nintendo had previously announced the latest Super Smash Bros. title during E3 of 2011, stating that this next game would be available on both the 3DS and the then-upcoming Wii U from Masahiro Sakurai, who was still working on Kid Icarus: Uprising at the time. Since then, Sakurai announced that Namco Bandai would be helping with the development of the game. We’ll likely hear more about this game over the next year. In the meantime, you can check out the official Smash Bros. website here, as well as the Smash Bros. community that is now up on Miiverse.
