It has officially been confirmed by Super Smash Bros. producer Masahiro Sakurai during an interview with Kotaku at E3 2013 that the ‘tripping’ feature from Super Smash Bros. Brawl will not return in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and for 3DS.
Sakurai confirmed the removal of tripping by simply saying, “To answer quite frankly, it will not return.” It doesn’t get any more definitive than that folks. Tripping was not a well liked feature in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and it seems logical for Nintendo to remove this feature.
