Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

In Masahiro Sakurai’s latest column in Famitsu, the Super Smash Bros. director detailed more positives and negatives of working from home. During this period, he’s realized that suddenly making a home environment into a work environment is easier said than done, noting that it’s hard to work efficiently without proper ergonomic seating, desk space, and partitioning.

Sakurai decided to do what he could to help all the staff members working from home, as he described in the column, via our translation:

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will host its latest Spirit Board event this week. This time around, it features characters with horns. Players can earn snacks by defeating them.

The new Spirit Board event goes live on June 19. Similar to previous ones, it’ll last for three days.

There’s nothing quite like Super Smash Bros. speculation. Given the series’ popularity and mystery surrounding unannounced characters, fans can’t help but wonder about who could end up in the game. However, because of this curiosity, director Masahiro Sakurai has to be careful as to what he shares.

Writing in his latest Famitsu column this week, Sakurai mentioned that he tends to “play a ton of games”. But since fans may begin to speculate and there could be misunderstandings, he generally doesn’t reveal what he’s been playing.

Here’s our translation of the excerpt:

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is gearing up for its next Spirit Board event. This time around, it’s all about the N64. Spirits relating to the console will appear, and the experience you can receive will be 6.4 times the normal amount.

The new Spirit Board event goes live on June 5. It’ll be held for a total of three days.

In light of the coronavirus pandemic, many developers are now working from home. That includes Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai. Earlier this month, we heard that he’s now overseeing the game remotely.
