The fourth entry in the Super Smash Bros. series has been in the works for quite some time and Wii U owners are growing impatient. However, what a lot of gamers might not know is just how much effort goes into each installment in this popular Nintendo brawler.
In the latest issue of Famitsu, franchise director Masahiro Sakurai highlighted the incredible difficulties involved in developing a Smash Bros. game. Here's what he had to say:
When you think about three years like that, that’s the amount of time between entering middle or high school and graduating from it [in Japan]. You have all these people working their fingers to the bone to complete just a single project. The games I make tend to be played for a long time, and whether I’m satisfied with the results or there are things I’m not happy with, it always takes a lot of time to make them.Makes you appreciate all the work that goes into developing a game like Smash Bros., eh? The latest entry, which will be coming to both Wii U and 3DS, will launch sometime next year.
