Sakurai Doesn’t Care that You Don’t Like the Smash Clones
In the latest Famitsu column Sakurai explains why they decided to create the clones of Lucina, Dark Pit, and Doctor Mario citing the need to do so without adding man hours to the project. Everything needed to be done in stride with the rest of production.
“This is like a free dessert after a luxurious meal that was prepared free of charge. In a restaurant with this type of service, I don’t think there’s anybody who would say, ‘Change this to a meat dish!!’”
“Yet, I’m told [to do that] about Smash Bros. But, I guess since a lot of them are children, it cannot be helped.”
Sounds like Sakurai’s been hanging around Hideki Kamiya. Godspeed, you wonderful bastard.
