Masahiro Sakurai is back with yet another installment in his game development video series. Today’s video focuses in on blade trails, which fits into the “Effects” category.

The effect left behind in the wake of a sword swing is what Sakurai calls a “blade trail.” In today’s Effects episode, Sakurai explains how these are made, and points out a few things to watch out for.

Much like any other area of a game, getting these kind of effects right can really enhance not just the look of a game, but the feeling the player experiences as well. With the right kind of atmosphere and energy, a simple sword slash can make the player feel unstoppable!
