Recently, EDGE Magazine managed to get an interview with the director of the Super Smash Bros series Masahiro Sakurai!
In this interview he went on to talk about how leaving HAL Laboratory, creating the Kirby series and being the director of the Super Smash Bros series allowed him to create new ideas!
Check it out below:
“There’s been some kind of misunderstanding about that. I never said that I didn’t want to make Kirby games. I think what I talked about in the past, about it being difficult to create a new game if I just stayed at HAL has been twisted somehow. I wouldn’t mind working anywhere as long as I get to create new things. I’m making Smash Bros. because Nintendo has asked me to, and because I feel it’s a project that I should prioritize above all else if I’m asked to do it. If I create a new game, that may be one more great, fun game people can play – but by making Smash Bros. I can create something with more value and wide-reaching effects. However, I definitely don’t feel like I am stuck in a rut doing similar things. Every time I add lots of new things, and I feel that it’s a job I always enjoy.”
