Masahiro Sakurai is famous for his work on Smash Bros., but he’s working on a variety of other titles throughout his career – including Meteos. In the latest video for his YouTube channel, he delved into the game’s origins and even shared a proposal he made to help explain things a bit more easily.
During his days of supervising and consulting work, Tetsuya Mizuguchi – who was at SEGA before co-founding Q Games – asked Sakurai to make a falling-block puzzle game. Interestingly, Sakurai said he’s not really good at these types of titles. He wanted to do more than the risk and reward gameplay they offer (like creating a high stack in Tetris which is a risk, and then knocking them down into a big reward at once).
