It's hard finding good work with the economy in the toilet, but we hear Nintendo's looking for a few good men (or women) to help Mario punch Link in the face. The way the company's drumming up interest in the opening is a little unconventional, though. After Nintendo head Satoru Iwata announced that Smash Bros is coming to the Wii U and 3DS during the company's E3 press event, reporters asked when the game would be released. The answer? Um, we haven't actually started on it yet. Know anybody looking for work?
"Honestly, at this point, we shouldn't be announcing these games to the general public," Kotaku reports Masahiro Sakurai, the designer of Smash Bros, as saying, "But since we need to assemble developers for the game, we made them public."
Sakurai flat-out said that nobody's even working on the game yet, then hinted that the game might not even hit store shelves at all – it depended entirely on whether or not they could get capable staff to toss their hats into the Smash Bros ring.
