Sakurai looks back on Smash Bros. Ultimate's character reveals
Last week, Nintendo shared a series of comments from Masahiro Sakurai on each of the Super Smash Bros. character reveal trailers for Wii U and 3DS, but today brings something a little more Ultimate.
You can see what Sakurai had to say about Ridley and Sora’s reveal trailers below, but makes sure to click over to Nintendo UK for comments on the rest of the newcomers as well.
This is the first fighter reveal video for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. We might have made this first one the most serious of them all. I wanted to make the part where Ridley takes down Mega Man and Mario a bit more intense… However, we wanted to balance the scene, and so we made it very carefully, with many discussions with the international teams.
This is the last fighter to be revealed, so we went back to the beginning and made it a finale. Creating that many fighters in CG would have been a lot of work! Instead, we made the background black and plain, but I think this is the best way. The in-game part also came out really well. I think it’s a fitting end. I’ve mentioned in an interview elsewhere about how I actually wrote two plots, but this is the way we chose to go.
