Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai is dealing with a lot of pain at the moment. In this week’s Famitsu, he revealed outright that he is suffering from calcific tendonitis and several ruptures in the muscles. The pain itself is bad enough, but it’s also affecting his work on the next Smash Bros. games.
Sakurai does have a Twitter account and fans from all over the world have been writing in and wishing him well. He’s been keeping tabs on the various messages, but told everyone that they shouldn’t worry about his injury or the development of Smash Bros.
Thanks a lot of encouragement messages.Please don’t worry about my injury & SMASH BROS development.
