We’ve known that a new Smash Bros game is in development for the Wii U and the 3DS since this year’s E3, but if a supposedly leaked photo of an internal Nintendo Spec sheet is to be believed, we may finally have a title.

The photos, which popped up this morning around the web seem to be for a game called “Super Smash Bros Universe,” and bears the Wii U logo. Get it? U-niverse. Wii U? Ahh Clever.

Don’t take it as a sign that development is moving along on the title though — project lead Masahiro Sakurai took to his Twitter account to address the progress of the game following the leak.  Sakurai noted that all of his attention is currently going towards Kid Icarus: Uprising for the 3DS, and progress on Smash Bros won’t progress until Uprising is finished.

By the way, Uprising was recently delayed until next year, so don’t hold your breath.

    I loved 64 and Melee, but not so much for Brawl. I hope Sora can get the series back on its feet.

    No Stephen’s right ,the first had the most original frame rate in a smash game,melee was fast paste so people got to show of in a unique way ,BRAWL however is nice & that’s all it is …..nice ,i mean common,tripping out of nowhere & depending on the character,you felt vulnerable while trying to run after your opponent ,it sucked. lol =\ Meaning it was too slow ,melee had such a thrill/rush to it ,if you knew your moves accordingly ,it was like fighting anime style haha,very fast paste & coordinated well hehe. There is something Stephen needs to know tho & I think its a win win for everyone ,sakurai in an article has said he will not go back to the roots of melee cause the development was painstakingly too long & difficult & for the sake of casual gamer,the game itself was too hard,only hardcore fighters got in on the fun than say girls or guy noobs lol just kidding (noobs part) lol but he went on to say that the U version (dont know bout the 3DS) will have HUGE improvements to the franchise & also will be unlike anything you’ve ever seen before =)
