Bad news if you were hoping that your Nintendo 3DS may have been enough to play against your friends’ Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. Today it was revealed by director Masahiro Sakurai via an interview with Joystiq at E3 that Super Smash Bros. will not feature cross-platform play on the Wii U and 3DS.

The reason for this is because each version of the game will have different stages and although some stages will be the same, these differences are too great to allow the cross-platform play. He did mention however that players will be able to customize their characters in some way and will be able to transfer them to the Wii U version of the game, but he did not elaborate as to what type of customization he was referring to.
