Masahiro Sakurai on the future of Super Smash Bros: “I currently don’t see a path where Smash can be produced without myself”

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai has chimed in on the future of the iconic Super Smash Bros. series. Read on below to learn more:

When Famitsu asked Sakurai whether he can create a new sequel to Smash, he immediately said “Impossible!” multiple times. However, he later elaborated that neither he nor Nintendo have finalized plans for such a sequel. Here are some of the highlights from Famitsu‘s interview with Masahiro Sakurai:

  • “I am not thinking of a sequel. I am not thinking of it every time. However, I can’t say with certainty that this would be the end of Smash.”
  • “I need to think whether I must release a Smash game or not, even if I have to do something that would disappoint users.”
  • “I currently don’t see a path where Smash can be produced without myself.”
  • “Honestly, we did actually try leaving it to someone else, but it didn’t go well.”
  • “If the series were to continue, I have to talk with Nintendo and have a debate on whether it will succeed or not. I must think about this topic seriously.”
