Extra: Sakurai Still Working on Kid Icarus
So a couple of days ago, there was this supposed document leak for the next Smash Bros. detailing things here and there and blah blah blah. But I’m not going to link it to you because it’s all bunk! Masahiro Sakurai, who will be in charge of directing the future Smash Bros. titles, has stated before that his team will not begin work on the games until they are finished working on Kid Icarus: Uprising, which will not be out until early 2012. To reinforce this, Sakurai left a Twitter message today (September 21, 2011) which translates to:
“I’m currently concentrating on one title, Kid Icarus. Until this wraps up, Smash Bros. will not progress. Of course, characters have not been decided at all.” – Masahiro Sakurai
While we will not receive Smash Bros. previews for some a while, this is still the most important time to support the cause for Mega Man to show up in the game. We want to make sure that when development starts, Nintendo has Mega Man on the brains. So keep supporting him in anyway you see fit, and be sure to share your efforts here!
