Special thanks to Bri Bri over at Japanese Nintendo for giving us a heads up!
Sakurai wrote a quick blurb in the latest Famitsu about the upcoming year. Previously, a short summary was available. Source Gaming is providing the full translation.
I’ve been developing the DLC characters for Smash for 3DS/ Wii U. I’ve been very thorough when making these characters, so I needed a lot of time. I haven’t been able to take a vacation since starting this project, but it’s almost over! I want to enjoy every day like it’s a Sunday. However, that doesn’t mean my next job hasn’t been decided already. So it’s less like I’m taking a break, and more like I’m taking a breather for a moment.
Make sure to follow us on Twitter for more Smash and gaming news.
