Comment from Masahiro Sakurai has fans wondering about the future of Smash Bros.
To kick off Nintendo’s Treehouse coverage, Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai stopped by to show off Smash Bros. Ultimate. There’s one comment in particular that’s been making the rounds.
Here’s what Sakurai said:
“The biggest appeal of this game is really that everyone – every single fighter – is back here. We may continue the Smash series in the future, but I don’t know if we’ll ever be able to pull this off, so I really hope that you’ll enjoy this iteration of the game.”
Some folks are speculating that Smash Bros. Ultimate could be the last game in the series. We don’t really see that happening, but you never know what may happen in the future. Perhaps what Sakurai said means that a future Smash Bros. title could see more of a dramatic shift.
