Nintendo and PlatinumGames are teaming up once again on a totally new IP. Announced earlier this week, Astral Chain is coming to Switch. Not only that, but it’s just a few months away with a release date set for August 30.

Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai published a new column in this week’s issue of Famitsu. The series recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, so Sakurai had a few words to share such as how it wasn’t always a sure thing that the franchise would continue. He gets pretty reflective here as well as later in the piece when he starts thinking about what lies ahead for his future as a developer. Outside of that, we also get to see a bit of talk about Piranha Plant in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

We’ve prepared a full translation of Sakurai’s column. Continue on below to read it in full.

According to a report from Nintendo World Report, “Nintendo could make its first VR-related announcement as early as this year”. Emily Rogers, who wrote the piece, cites having heard about this from “multiple sources.” Rogers adds that “a small, select number of traditional first-party software titles may receive VR support in the not-so-distant future.”

Nintendo has commented on the possibility of virtual reality in the past, but has never made a clear indication that such a feature is planned for Switch. We’ll have to see how things pan out in the future.
