Development started two weeks ago

Scratch that, Sakurai started thinking about starting development two weeks ago.

Considering that they're doing two separate games and actual development started two weeks ago (there was planning and some designs done before) I'd doubt we'll see this for quite some time.

Being optimistic I'd say Summer 2014 release at the very earliest if this team can work miracles and release two quality games in that time. Development on Brawl started in 2005 and the game finally shipped in 2008...so three years when they were just making one game. I think I read somewhere that Sakurai wasn't happy with Nintendo announcing this so early.

I'd be surprised if a tweet surfaced about an announcement coming soon for someone announcing that they are thinking about starting development.

I'd like to think they'd continue the subspace emmisary. I actually liked it.

Yeah it would be great if they could improve upon an adventure mode.
Hopefully they don't add support for up to 4 players though like they did with NSMB. Any more than 2 in a scrolling platformer gets crowded and laborious IMO.

The problem with subspace emmisary was that it failed to use locales or enemies from any of the actual Nintendo games, levels shoehorned in from a cancelled Kirby game, and a confusing hard to follow story with no pretense. And quite frankly, there wasn't enough fanservice. Why didn't we get to see Bowser and Ganondorf going head to head?

I love doing that! It was fun! If you don't like, don't use it. IMO

The problem is (at least, generally), when you design levels like these around the possibility of holding 4 players, it has to be more accommodating. The challenge is watered down, and so the single player (or two player) experience suffers as a result.

Oops. Didn't think of that from the designing sign. Maybe it's the same levels, but formatted 20% differently from 4 players? I don't know, but I at least liked the 2-player.

No offense but if you're expecting the SSB team to focus that much on single player, then you're kidding yourself.

Not that they're lazy or apathetic, it's just not their focus. It's a multiplayer brawler and just recently did they implement anything past a glorified standard fighting game campaign (go to each stage, beat a bad guy, etc).
