Sakurai Says To Expect The Smash Bros. Ultimate Character Announcements To Slow Down

Recommended Videos

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was revealed back in March of this year and we’ve already had nine newcomers announced for the game, but Sakurai says that it might slow down until its release. [Thanks, Ryokutya2089.]


“We announced Isabelle in the Nintendo Direct,” Sakurai wrote in his Weekly Famitsu column. “… however, it would be a mistake to think that the new character announcements will keep going [at this pace] until Smash Bros. releases. We may have been a little trigger-happy so we’ll be living modestly from here on out.”


While on the subject of how close the game is from going gold (meaning complete and ready to ship) Sakurai wrote “It’ll be complete in just a little longer… or so we expect!”


Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches for Nintendo Switch on December 7, 2018. Check our previous report for some talk about a supposedly leaked character.
