Mr. Sakurai has finally begun working on Smash Bros. 3DS

Masahiro Sakurai, the creative force behind both the Kirby and the Super Smash Bros. series has stated through his Twitter account, that he’s currently starting work on the next Smash Bros game for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Now that he’s finished working on Kid Icarus: Uprising on Nintendo 3DS he’s turned his attention to thinking how the next installment of the franchise will be for both consoles.

We may not see footage or screenshots for a while, but hopefully we’ll get at least some information at E3 2012.
