Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: the director makes games to make others happy

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Masahiro Sakurai, the director of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, has stated that he makes games to make others happy. The phrase was said in an interview with Katsuhiro Harada, for a series in which the two discussed various topics, including withdrawal from the world of development, cars and Sakurai's enigmatic personality.

Speaking of video game development, Sakurai and Harada both said they make games that they themselves would like to play, but the former aims to make others happy, while Harada really wants to play his titles.

For this reason Sakurai also plays and studies genres in which he is not very good, such as puzzle games (his the beautiful Meteos), while Harada only makes games of genres he loves.

During the interview, Sakurai also answered questions about Kid Icarus: Uprising, Kirby and his health. On the latter, the developer said he was fine, despite the fact that he still suffers from tendonitis. Regarding his apparent youth, Sakurai has unveiled a very simple trick to keep the skin from aging prematurely: avoid the sun.

Next week will be the last date of the meeting between Harada and Sakurai. We hope it's not to be missed.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Insider Comments on DLC Character Leak

There's a new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC leak making the rounds and it has Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite fans excited for its implications. However, it looks like Nintendo fans are getting their hopes up for nothing, as according to a prominent Nintendo insider and leaker, there's nothing to the leak, which is usually the case with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate leaks.

Long story short, a recent leak surfaced with 'evidence' that the next Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC character, which will also be the final DLC character according to Nintendo, will be purple. And of course, this instantly makes Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fans think of Waluigi, one of the most in-demand DLC characters, though some of this demand is more meme than genuine.

That said, taking to Twitter, the aforementioned insider and leaker, Samus Hunter, shot down the leak as incorrect.

At the moment of publishing, Nintendo hasn't addressed the initial leak nor the follow-up from Samus Hunter. We don't expect this to change for a variety of reasons, however, if it does change, if Nintendo does provide some type of comment, we will update the story accordingly.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available via the Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo Switch Lite. For more coverage on the best-selling and critically-acclaimed platform fighter, click here or, alternatively, check out the relevant links right below:
