One of the more noticeable and controversial design choices of the Nintendo 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. has been an imposing black border which surrounds each of the characters. Nintendo’s reasoning is that this allows them to stand out from the backgrounds easier.
Some fans appreciate how much the borders help them see the characters on the Nintendo 3DS’ much smaller screen, and some fans are taken aback by how it looks compared to the silky smooth presentation of the HD Wii U version. However, Director Masahiro Sakurai has taken to his Miiverse page to show how the borders can be adjusted and even entirely removed.
“Here’s a comparison of characters with and without their outlines on the 3DS version,” he says. “They also give off a different impression in 3D, so customize the look however you like.”
There is a definite difference between the two, and I agree with the border making the characters that much more visible. I would rather see the effect in motion before calling the shots on this one, but I trust Sakurai to know what he is doing in making them the default option. Any other opinions?
