At this point, we really shouldn’t have to tell you how dedicated Masahiro Sakurai is to his gaming projects. The man has a “focus” to him that is undeniable, and it’s reflected in the quality of his games. However, he takes things to an almost ridiculous level when it comes to Super Smash Bros. Recently, he’s been talking about the latest entry, Ultimate, and highlighting how much effort it took to make the game what it was. But today, he took that in a different direction by showcasing how much “supervision” he has over the art and graphics teams and giving feedback to make certain characters, effects, stages, and more look great.
In this video, which is over 11 minutes long, he talked about Super Smash Bros Ultimate. He looked at characters like Minecraft Steve, Pyra/Mythra, Kazuya, and Sephiroth, the stages they were on, how their moves worked and looked, and even some of the Mii Costume and event graphics! The phrase “fine-toothed comb” really applies here because Masahiro Sakurai didn’t miss a thing, and he even looked at the smallest details to ensure that the overall presentation was magnificent. Watch the full video below and see just how incredible his attention to detail is.
