Why did Nintendo use such a crappy subtitle rather than something more energetic? Every other iteration had a cool sub except the first which is admissible. Any good ideas for what subtitle would have worked? BTW I never played this one. Never played past Brawl.

Same reason as "New" Super Mario Bros, probably.

Perhaps it was so that people would buy the same game twice (on Wii U and 3DS)? I did it.

I did too, but that's not a valid reason. Plenty of games are multiplatform but have the same name. Look at Super Mario Maker.

Probably to convey the fact that ssb4 3ds was essentially the complete product, rather than implying that it was a completely separate (and presumably lesser) game.

Imagine if ssb4 was titled "smash Bros burst" and ssb4 3ds was called "smash Bros scuffle." People might wrongly assume they're radically different

They didn't need different names at all though
they could have both been called "burst".
