Smash Bros Creator Sakurai Confirms He’s Working On Next Project

on

We are all dying to know what Super Smash Bros creator Masahiro Sakurai is working on next. Sadly we are no closer to finding out, but he has confirmed in the latest edition of Weekly Famitsu that he has already started work on his next project. The news was part of a feature where Japanese creators share their 2016 ambitions and plans. Here’s what Sakurai had to say.

Sora’s Masahiro Sakurai (Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, etc.)

I want to enjoy every day like it’s Sunday. However, that doesn’t mean the next job hasn’t been decided.

  1. Nice to know he is advancing to a new project. I’m already anxious, does Sakurai will make another work for Nintendo or is he finally going to develop to another platforms?

        I think hes going to revive an old series like he did with Kid Icarus. Maybe an IceClimbers game?? Or maybe even an earthbound/mother!

      2. I hope so, but I can’t deny that would be very interesting to see Sakurai working with other consoles, he praised the PS4 as a great machine to develop games, and since he is a freelance developer, the probabilities are huge. Of course, he still wants to have relationships with Nintendo after Iwata’s passing, but I’m just commenting because how interesting this could be.

            do you remember the iwata asks about super smash bros brawl?:
            Sakurai: So this is for the “Iwata Asks” interviews, right?
            Iwata: That’s right.
            Sakurai: In other words, this is where you, the president of Nintendo, interview the developers working for Nintendo.
            Sakurai: Is it okay for me to be here since I’m not a Nintendo employee?

Entertainment and published by Bandai, this game got sequels in PC and Xbox 360. Brawl, KI Uprising and Smash 4 were all deveoped in a freelance fashion, all envolving different teams and studios.

            Don’t know about you, but I’d rather have a good sequel than a mediocre new IP, even if the anticipation and excitement for the new IP is greater. That’s not to say that variety is unimportant, obviously.

        Like someone said keep grinding to level 25 or higher and make sure you equip the best ground gear you can for each character and or sell the ground gear and save up to buy the best armor for each character from the store and next to the store keep leveling up what armor is available with the points you get which is 6000 maybe more and I am still the original class but level 34 I think and I’m only on chapter 4 but I’m grinding so when it comes to missions I will wreck the monsters and I’m leveling up all the characters I can play as and can put on my team so far to level 30 and up like for example lin and elm are 30 and up and Doug and Gwin are 30 and up and yelv is 30 and up and I’m working on h.b. and irina today and will get them up to level 30 and up but I know places to quickly level them up and I will save up to 1.6 million dollars or more so all of my characters will have the best armor as of now from the store and I have 500 thousand dollars so I will still have a ways to go and find places to grind your characters quickly but make sure you don’t die but they can die all they want since they come back for example I was level 30 yesterday and I faced a few level 41 dinosaurs in the desert place I forgot the name and I leveled up quickly but I can only do that much of a level difference on some enemies but the max I would say go is 5 levels from your level and that’s all I can think of right now

    Sakurai has done at least one game between each Smash game. I can’t imagine him going straight to Smash 5 right now.

    Let me guess, Panel De Pon? I heard it was his favorite puzzle game series and it wouldn’t be too farfetched for him to take this opportunity to revive it. If not, then a Kid Icarus sequel seems very likely since he’s taken a liking for that universe.

    Personally, Murasame Castle wouldn’t be a good fit for him which is why I would expect Kamiya to be the one handling that.

    1. He’s already stated he doesn’t want to make another Kid Icarus, or at least not this soon. Hopefully we don’t have to wait another 25 years for the next sequel, but I’m okay waiting a bit longer than 4 years. F-Zero, on the other hand…

      Maybe he can make an Ice Climbers revival so he has no excuse to cut them from Smash again.

    He’s like a wrestler that refuses to quit even when his age is becoming an issue or he’s injured & should give the injury a couple of months to heal up. If there is no one to tell him to stop, he won’t. Thus what he can give us will be severely lacking because he isn’t 100%.
