    Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the last entry for the series, featured a campaign called The Subspace Emissary. It was basically a crack fic on steroids, throwing the varied roster into a single narrative. The story wasn't exactly high art, but it was a decent enough excuse to create insane team ups of classic characters (and the Ice Climbers), both in gameplay and cutscene form.

    If you enjoyed those cutscenes, well, too bad. They're not coming back because of... uh, the internet.

    More like Super Smash Bros. Bawl.

    Nintendo's relationship with the internet isn't exactly stellar (cough cough), and here is yet another bump in the road. It seems absolutely silly to remove cutscenes, of all things, just because they end up on the internet. I mean, everything ends up on the internet. You wouldn't remove the game's score just because people might listen to it "out of context" online, right? Right?

    ...You know, I'm going to stop talking before I give them any more ideas.

    any type of gameplay or any cutscenes or intros scenes will find it way to the Internet at some point
    be it youtube or a live stream(like twitch)

    it will be on the intent at some point

    so why cut them
    people will still like to see them in a good quality(right forom the game) on there own system
    many people(with bad Internet and or a bad PC) can not watch online/streaming HD videos

    They think people care about the cutscenes for SSE? They were some of the dumbest shit I've seen (fanfic on crack is right), the only reason I didn't skip them was so I'd have a better idea of what the goal for the next stage would be.

    Adventure Mode in Melee worked just fine.

    I laugh at those that say it's lame or deal breaker.

    While it's not a deal-breaker, the reasoning behind this is just plain stupid. It's almost like saying it's not worth making Game of Thrones as a series because someone may have read the books. pff..

    Yes.
    I think they should remove the music too. The soundtrack can end up online too! Heck, get rid of the entire game and replace it with a black screen. Let's Plays, you know.

    Hardly the most important part of the game, but I thought it was a nice added bit of fun to the single-player. Shame to see it go, hope Nintendo devs pull their heads out of their asses about the internet soon.

    He was upset that the cut scenes were uploaded on the Internet? What? That's kind of a really weird excuse. I would understand if they were absent on 3ds, but the fact they are taking them out of the WiiU version as well is a little strange. As long as they make it up in better game play I guess I won't miss it that much.

    YES!
    BTW I cannot find the cutscenes to be honest.
    ( I wished they removed the cutscenes form Metroid other M, or at least make them skippable.)

    How is a game "not" having a feature that nobody cared about front page news (*coughNSMBUthread*)?

    GBATemp is quickly reaching Kotaku status.
