The third portion of the Harada’s Bar interview series with Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai continued today with topics such as his health and the 3DS game Kid Icarus: Uprising.

Sakurai explained:

On July 19, Capcom announced that the game had already shipped over one million copies worldwide.
