The information was shared throughout a pre-E3 press convention in 2005, and president Satoru Iwata introduced to the world {that a} new entry could be launched for its upcoming system with on-line play. Iwata and Sakurai met shortly after, and Sakurai ended up agreeing to make a Smash Bros. sport for Wii.
