Super Smash Bros Ultimate creator Masahiro Sakurai has taken to his Famitsu column to discuss the coronavirus pandemic and its potential impact on game development. Mr. Sakurai acknowledges that the coronavirus could cause a delay in the development of the Super Smash Bros Ultimate downloadable content. Though at the moment it remains unaffected.
There is a possibility that Nintendo will announce the new fighter(s) as planned, but no development work will be done.
COVID-19 will have a huge impact on a lot of games, and a lot of titles will be impacted.
