Don’t you have anything else to talk about? Must you make another feature about localisation? —Why Cut Content is Localized
Already responded within the article:
The next SourceCast (after the Pokemon focused one with NintenDaan) will be a debate centered around censorship vs. localization featuring people to represent both sides. Since this is ongoing discussion (Sakurai’s column “Don’t Need This, Don’t Need That” is even trending now) we figured it was still relevant enough to feature. (Note the podcast has been recorded!)
I’m sorry if we burnt you out of the discussion…it’s a very important issue for Source Gaming as one of the main things we do is translate things ourselves and look at the original meaning in various games.
We have a lot of other things planned, don’t worry 🙂 March’s schedule is essentially filled up now and we are working on several projects.

So… just curious, do you think all the DLC characters were planned on the original project proposal for Smash Wii U/3DS (sans Bayonetta and Corrin) or do you think all the DLC characters weren’t planned until the game was near completion? —Featured Comments #9
With the exception of Mewtwo…possibly Lucas and Roy I think the characters were picked as time went on. Lucas and Roy were picked for their ease of development, Mewtwo was picked for being the standout fan favorite. I do think Roy and Lucas weren’t worked on until the game went gold though. I believe that they were just planned DLC content. I think Ryu, Cloud, Corrin and Bayonetta were picked after DLC officially started.

His movesets really do look perfect for Smash. But I do agree bringing a third Capcom character may be too many. But entirely, I guess Mega Man and Ryu is both popular and iconic to Capcom, while Wright is just only popular than iconic, and I think being popular isn’t enough to be in Smash. But having Wright in Smash is another interesting this see. —The Case for Phoenix Wright
I really don’t think you should view the characters as outright company reps. We all thought Fire Emblem wasn’t going to get any more representation, but they did. This is because interesting characters, regardless of their origins are prioritized over filling imaginary boxes.

What I found the most interesting was the bit about him not being able to answer fan questions without Nintendo’s consent. I mean, it makes sense, but still. It might explain why he’s usually so mum on characters who didn’t make it in. —Sakurai Live Stream Recap
It’s partly that, but it’s also because fans jump on Sakurai everytime he opens his mouth. He discussed the need to be quiet, and his approach to Twitter in a Famitsu Column.

I’m thinking of writing a guest article but I might need a few paragraphs of Japanese translated for me. Would you be willing to help with that? —Guidelines for Guest Posting
Already commented but for everyone else:
As long as it’s not too excessive and relevant to the article, we can help you with a “SG-approved” translation.

One thing though. My only main sources I ever really use for Smash information (or any Nintendo information, tbh) is either Source Gaming or Nintendo themselves. So, the sources are only one (or zero) links away. ? —On Proper Sourcing
attaboy! Really honored, thank you!

I wouldn’t think “Is Sakurai a Liar?” article was a mistake to be posted. It has lots of evidences that he never lied a single thing, and I agreed most of them as that was an article that I was looking for. It’s not about defending Sakurai, it’s about proving those misinformed and misunderstood people that they’re wrong. It’s only whether those people really did read the article to understand what’s going on, or they refuse to read because they simply don’t want to. I think that’s what’s going on with Pokemon Sun & Moon right now.
Thank you for sharing us such important article PushDustIn!–On Proper Sourcing
Sorry, I didn’t mean that I regretted Is Sakurai a Liar? As an article itself, I just regret titling it like that! I think it’s a super important article and was bummed at the lackluster response to it within the Smash community. It’s as important as The Definitive Unused Fighter List IMO.
