launch

Enthusiasts, are you enjoying Smash Bros. Ultimate‘s latest combatant, Joker? He takes a while to get used to, so perhaps you are anxiously awaiting more information on the rest of Ultimate‘s DLC roster. Fortuitously, a unique message from the game’s director, Masahiro Sakurai, was allegedly shared to special fans via Twitter. This message contains hints on what’s in Ultimate‘s future, as well as a surprise regarding the title’s launch.

Give us those sweet launch information scraps

The following Tweet was sent to Ultimate fanatics in Japan, and was translated by PushDustIn:

Man, Sakurai and his team never sleep. They must be vampires.

The most interesting thing about this message is that it was sent to gamers when Ultimate launched. Therefore, three of the five DLC fighters have been dutifully worked on for months. Perhaps we will hear concrete details on these characters sooner than later. E3, perhaps?

Additionally, “one more thing” most likely refers to the Stage Builder that was recently added to the game. I mean, I’ll continue to fantasize about the return of BREAK THE TARGETS and BOARD THE PLATFORM. The fondness for the N64 original never goes away.

Even though readers should take this news with a grain of salt, are you excited about the possibility of getting more warriors added to Smash Bros. Ultimate in the near future? Tell us your thoughts by leaving a comment below.

  1. I’m sure one will be announced at E3 and released directly after, with the third following a month or two later.

    1. I love the way you think.

    2. One can only hope.

    3. By “directly after” would mean at least one month? How quickly did the characters release after being revealed for Wii U?

  2. They aren’t vampires, they are being abused through crunch.

  3. So…MYTHRA

  4. Steve from Minecraft?

    1. Well, according to an alleged leak we reported on months ago… Yeah, he could be coming.

    2. Steve could be an interesting character with all the tools he has available to use. I guess like Villager … both are sandbox games, and use several different tools. Steve even has a fishing rod 😉

      In Sakurai’s vision, he wants the character to behave like in the original game. Megaman being a good example. Meaning the animations shouldn’t bend the limbs, unlike in Minecraft: Story Mode. Sakurai will make it work.

      I would love to see the stage being semi-randomised, like in Minecraft, and having it continue infinitly into the distance. But the foreground can slice the world, showing caves and other things below the ground. Plus avoiding anything obscuring the camera.

      1. Now that would be cool, a randomized Minecraft stage. I don’t know about it continuing infinitly though. That doesn’t seem like it would work too well.

  5. Depends on what “development” refers to. Nintendo has been the one picking the characters this time, so they could have picked 3 from the start, and some designers can have just been planning out how the 2nd and 3rd characters should work, without any technical work being done until Joker was completed. – This is still technically development, but barely any effort is taken from developing Joker.

    This is just vague speculation, but just to show that “development” doesn’t have to carry that much meaning.
