Was it smart to include a 3DS Version?

I'm not saying they shouldn't have because I will be playing both regardless but sales wise, was it smart? I'm pretty sure more people are getting the 3DS version over the Wii U version merely on the fact that they already have one or it's cheaper, smash on the go etc. If they wanted the Wii U to prosper why not just stick to tradition so more people are forced to buy it if they really want to play smash?

Yes but I do wish they separated the games more.

They have completely different stages selections and are going to have other different features. Plenty of people may buy both. Plus the Wii U version is the one that's going to be played at tournaments.
Come to the board in my profile for random discussion. Though mainly anime.

Well, to make sure the 3DS version doesn't cannibalize the Wii U sales, the two versions should have different release dates.

Yes just wished they both had the same stages.

Might want to check again on the most people are buying it on 3DS logic. There was a thread yesterday on which version are you buying, and the poll was overwhelmingly Wii U. Like 80 to 20%. Granted, this thread is pretty biased toward diehard fans, but still. I imagine even with the 3DS version, people will still want the Wii U version enough to buy a Wii U. Heck, playing the 3DS version may cause them to buy a Wii U/Wii U version.

wait before we know how the both connect before judging the decision.
