Super Smash Bros Ultimate is already filled to the absolute brim with content and different characters, and there's also more to come. But as the game has become the most successful installation in the series so far (by far) - it has led to some problems for the creator Masahiro Sakurai.
In the latest issue of the Japanese magazine Famitsu (translated by Nintendo Everything), Sakurai says he can't tell people what he plays anymore:
"I normally play a ton of games, but if people find out what kinds of games I'm playing, they have a tendency to start making a fuss over, 'Did Sakurai just confirm so-and-so for Smash?!' These misunderstandings spread like wildfire particularly in countries abroad. I have to be extremely careful, so I don't write about what I'm playing on Twitter, and I have to decline appearing on TV shows or programs that highlight a specific game."
Are you surprised peoples reactions to Sakurai's gaming habits has led to this consequence?
