“Once that’s done, I actually have absolutely nothing lined up,” says Masahiro Sakurai.
Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai has typically stated that so long as individuals preserve demanding Smash and Nintendo retains asking him to make extra video games within the collection, he’ll preserve coming again to it. But apparently, there are not any ensures that he’ll even make one other new recreation after his work on the upcoming second batch of DLC characters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is completed and dusted.
Writing lately in his Famitsu column (by way of Event Hubs) Sakurai stated that he has nothing lined up after the upcoming DLCs, and that there’s “no guarantees” he’ll make one other recreation as soon as his at present ongoing work has been wrapped up.
“That’s how I approach game development whenever I start a new project,” Sakurai wrote. “Though, truthfully, there’s no assure I’ll preserve making video games after this. Right now, all I’m interested by is the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC growth. Once that’s performed, I even have completely nothing lined up.”
Sakurai is an individual who has garnered a fame for obsessive consideration to element, which he achieves by overworking himself to the purpose that he generally goes to work with an IV drip, so if there’s an individual who deserves some (much-needed) relaxation, it’s gotta be him- particularly now that he’s adhered to the final “mission” that was given to him by the late Satoru Iwata.
That stated, it’s extremely unlikely that Nintendo won’t ever make a Smash recreation ever once more, so we are able to’t actually say something for positive but. Sakurai himself has talked about what future Smash video games might appear like, and he’s prompt that after Ultimate, the collection may find yourself choosing one thing of a change in path.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s second Fighters Pack will include six characters, and would be the ultimate content material the sport receives. It was initially scheduled to be wrapped up by December 2021, however with the continuing coronavirus pandemic, evidently timeline may get pushed again.
