    1. “Imagine Sakurai stops developing Smash for Nintendo” That would be Waluigi fan’s dream come true. If Sakurai hates making Smash so much, why doesn’t he pass the torch already?

  2. You see this with every big time franchise. It’s not creative that becomes stagnant but the the corporation one works for. He can go and start up his own indie company and do his own thing now the way he sees fits. Good for him.
