Game Informer recently sat down for a lengthy interview with Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai.
Sakurai was asked if Super Smash Bros. Ultimate marks the end of the Super Smash Bros. series, as the word “Ultimate” could mean “final” in English. Sakurai says he’s always devoted himself to making every game as if it was the final Super Smash Bros. title, and he couldn’t deny there wouldn’t be another Smash Bros. game as he does not know what the future holds.
Another question Game Informer asked was what would he have thought if someone told him in 1998 that Super Smash Bros. would grow into something as massive as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 20 years later. The director said he would probably have exclaimed “you must be kidding!”, but at the back of his mind, he would have probably thought “that’s not entirely impossible”.
