Masahiro Sakurai has announced this morning on Twitter that development of the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Fighter Pass 2 is now happening remotely. With a lockdown now happening in certain regions in Japan it was inevitable that this would happen. Mr. Sakurai will continue to supervise the project. Let’s all wish the team the best.

    1. Since this is the last Smash game, it would be nice to get the return of Smash Run (the one good thing between the Wii U and 3DS ports of Smash 4), just to have some form of platforming adventure (other than the on-rails Pac-Land and Race to the Finish, or switching over to Kirby Star Allies). World of Light is good, but it’s not Melee’s Adventure mode or Subspace Emissary. Even if we don’t like all six of those final characters, we can at least play that to our heart’s content.

      1. Smash Run was garbage, it was flawed and super controversial. I’d rather want boss rush than something as garbage as Smash Run.

      2. Well we already have kind of a Boss Rush during the final battle against Galeem/Dharkon.

      3. Smash Run was a fantastic mode. Anyone who says it was garbage is just terrible at Smash.
        They might have to rebalance enemies since players can no longer airdodge multiple times… But it would totally be worth the effort imo to bring it over to Ultimate.

      4. “Since this is the last Smash game”

        0.0% chance this is the last Smash game. Makes way too much money. Yes, I know what they said. They also said that the 3DS was going to be a platform alongside the Switch, and that they weren’t interested in producing Nintendo products for mobile app stores.

        To be bad at smash is to not have fun while playing it. If you can only have fun in smash playing in a very specific way AND only when you win… Then you’re not good at Smash Bros.

      6. When i first saw world of light, I thought it would have many scenes like Subspace Emissary in Brawl. But now it feels like a total waste to me actually. But, I do like the map of the story mode still. Also, all six DLC characters has not been revealed yet.

      7. We know that, but there’s always one or more divisive character reveal in Smash. Look at how many people complained about Byleth. Not to mention those generally unhappy when a specific character they want doesn’t make it in.

        “To be bad at smash is to not have fun while playing it. If you can only have fun in smash playing in a very specific way AND only when you win… Then you’re not good at Smash Bros.”

        Not only a ridiculous argument, but an exceedingly dishonest argument as this is not how you used the term “bad at smash” in the comment this shiny was responding. If we applied this to your original comment, which is the topic then

        “Smash Run was a fantastic mode. Anyone who says it was garbage is just terrible at Smash.”

        Really means

        “If you don’t enjoy Smash Run, then you don’t enjoy Smash Run”.

        Which is an impressively stupid statement. Which of these guys do you want to be? The one lying about how they used their own terms, or the one who can barely put together a coherent thought?

  1. Id like to see smash run online with added content. I dug it. But i think he mentioned before we wont see no additional modes added so it is what it is.

    1. Sakurai’s a known deceiver- I wouldn’t be surprised to see at least one more new mode. I still feel that we can’t call it Ultimate without SOME form of “Break the Targets” (personally, I prefer the individual trials for each fighter like in 64 & Melee as opposed to the five universal stages in Brawl and the god-awful Target Smash).

      1. The lack of “Break the Targets” AND “Board the Platforms” belittles the name Ultimate. Two modes that were in the original game & you didn’t think to bring it back for an entry titled Ultimate? That’s like not bringing “Test Your Might” back to a Mortal Kombat game with Ultimate in the title.
