Sakurai covers the art of explosion effects in a new video
Here comes the boom
We’re barely into 2023 and Masahiro Sakurai is already back with the latest installment of his game development video series. Today, the focus is put on the creation of explosion effects in games.
According to Sakurai, it’s not enough to just show a blast of orange fire and be done with it. There’s actually a series of steps we use to impart the appropriate impact. Anyone who’s played Smash knows the series has some rather stellar explosions that definitely up the impact of moves and attacks, so I think it’s safe to say Sakurai knows what he’s talking about here!
