It seems like every week that we hear Super Smash Bros creator Masahiro Sakurai says that Super Smash Bros on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS could be his last. In a recent interview he has once again stated that he’s not sure if there will be another Smash Bros game, but of course we all hope there will be. Sakurai also revealed what we all expected and that’s that the Super Smash Bros DLC is nearing its end. Here’s what he had to say!
Sakurai: Yes, that applies to Lucina as well. How much a character will please the players, how unique they are—there are a lot of factors that go into deciding a character’s inclusion. I don’t know whether Fire Emblem will have many more games in the future, but it’s not as if we have a stipulation that says “we have to include the protagonist of the next Fire Emblem game.” Moreover, we don’t even know if there’ll be another Smash game.
Interviewer: You do say that every time, though, so I do wonder if maybe it’ll just keep on going forever.
Sakurai: And I’ll become the Smash craftsman? (laughs)
Interviewer: Yes. After all, including the DLC, you’ve been involved with Smash since the beginning.
Sakurai: Well, DLC is coming to an end soon, too, y’know.
