Sakurai still dealing with shoulder issues

Posted on April 9, 2015 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

We first learned that Masahiro Sakurai has been dealing with calcific tendinitis in his right shoulder about two years ago. His condition has improved at least slightly based on what’s written in his latest Famitsu column, though he’s still dealing with the physical problems.

Sakurai wrote:

“I still have trouble with my shoulder and the symptoms of tenosynovitis still remain, so I’m forced to use a special mouse that clicks by inclining for work. If I was to button mash, my arm would give out in 10 minutes.”

Sakurai is currently busy with downloadable content for Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS. Mewtwo and Lucas are on the way, with more DLC characters to come.
