In a recent interview with Famitsu, Smash’s Director Masahiro Sakurai brought up a few interesting points that are worth sharing with the Smash community.
To begin with, the most recent additions found in Lucas, Roy, and Ryu are not results of the recent fan polls that have been taken for suggestion characters. While the voting took place back in April, Lucas, Roy, and Ryu were all in development before the poll began.
Sakurai also said that he plans to add several more characters from here on, however these added characters will only be able to keep coming for as long as Sakurai can hold the development team together to work on Smash.
He also mentioned, like he’s said before, that he wants to make DLC that really caters to fans – thus the use of the fan poll. It’ll be fun to see the winners of the polls in the coming months!
