Sakurai admits that Smash Bros. Ultimate has too many Fire Emblem characters, too many sword users

Posted on February 5, 2020 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai returns in Famitsu this week with his bi-weekly column. Seeing as Byleth was recently added to the Switch game, Sakurai spoke about the new character – and also addressed some fan complaints that there are too many Fire Emblem characters and sword users.

Here’s a summary of some of the information shared in the column:

– The new fighters weren’t Sakurai’s own favorites
– Once again, Nintendo was behind those choices
– This time Sakurai is bringing the experience to play as the protagonist of a game you can play right now right away
– He tried to start working on a title where the original game was still in development
– Sakurai says he understands well that there are too many Fire Emblem characters
– Also understands that there are too many sword users
– It has been decided like that so he just proceeds as-is
– There are other things Sakurai has to think about more
– Since there are so many sword users, he brings in tactic exclusive to each fighter
– The 3 Hero Relics owned by the three house leaders were being included in move inputs

As always, we’re planning on providing a full translation of Sakurai’s column. Stay tuned for that in the future.
