Ever wonder why Smash Bros. stopped including those neat character cutscenes?

Well, it’s apparently because the clips kept getting leaked, Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai says in a video posted to his YouTube channel. The cutscenes, which Sakurai stopped including after SSB Brawl for the Wii, appear when you complete adventure mode.

“We put a lot of money and effort into making them, but before the game even came out, people were posting them online,” Sakurai said. “This meant they really weren’t much of a reward, so I decided to stop making movies that cut in during gameplay.”
