Let the Kirby Air Ride 2 speculation begin
With Smash Bros. Ultimate done and dusted, fans have been wondering what Masahiro Sakurai is going to tackle next. Many are hoping the Smash creator is going to take a very long, well-deserved break, but there’s little doubt he’ll get to work on a new project at some point. While we have no official clue as to what Sakurai is taking on, he did share a statement that’s leading to speculation.
Sakurai recently took to Twitter to mention that he had an online meeting with HAL. Sakurai worked as part of HAL over 20 years ago, and this meeting let him catch up with some former colleagues. He said that even though so much time had passed, the bond between himself and the rest of the team was still quite strong.
Sakurai is keenly aware that anything he shares online will get discussed, speculated on, and twisted a million different ways. We have no idea if Sakurai’s meeting with HAL was just for fun, or if there was some other elements to the virtual gathering. Anything you hear otherwise is pure speculation at this point. If Sakurai is teaming with HAL for something new, the time for a reveal isn’t here yet!
