In the latest Famitsu Column by Masahiro Sakurai, the Ultimate director of Super Smash Bros. talked about being excited about the prospect of showing what’s next for the game. In the videos “Mr. Sakurai Presents”, you can really say that Sakurai puts his heart and soul into these revelations.
Being able to participate in these different types of content really makes me feel like I̵7;m having a job filled with happiness and I’m looking forward to what we recommend, ”Sakurai said.
Of course, Sakurai asserted that it was very difficult to deliver these presentations and analysis of the characters. There are many different circumstances to thank for the challenges presented.
“The trailer is also something we’ve worked hard with,” said Sakurai. “Seeing this amazing response to it, it really resonates that no matter how difficult it is to get it done. It’s worth it.”
Sakurai continued: “The recording of the ‘How to Use Steve and Alex’ video was also very difficult. “There are so many things to think about, including all the bad things. This experience is deeply embedded in my memory.”
“Being able to participate in this variety of content really makes me feel like I’m in a very happy job and I’m looking forward to what we’ll cover next.” – Masahiro Sakurai
Sakurai continued to affirm how the global epidemic COVID-19 caused development problems. Previously, Sakurai mentioned how team members work at their homes to complete the remaining DLC. Regardless of the circumstances, Sakurai promised that they would provide content for Fighters Pass Vol. 2 and create interesting trailers to introduce the latest characters.
Sakurai notes: “Also, what I said a few times here in the journal columns, but the coronavirus pandemic is affecting all aspects of game development and making our work difficult. much more than usual ”.
The Fighters Pass Vol. The original 2 were expected to be completed by December 31, 2021, but the plan may have changed with new coronavirus outbreaks. When the pass challengers are released, development has continued since Super Smash Bros. 4 is expected to end.
The wait between Byleth and Min Min revealed the ending was 158 days. After Min Min’s announcement, 101 days later Steve was announced.
One can certainly expect developers to become a bit more efficient at home working as time passes. Masahiro Sakurai mentioned how he looks forward to the next revelation. Is this next announcement expected to come around 100 days after Steve’s reveal or could the next character reveal come sooner than expected?
