The development of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is far from being done, with DLC characters coming later this year as well as new updates introducing new features and content, and Masahiro Sakurai recently talked about these matters in a new book that has been released in Japan.
As reported by Nintendo Everything, Sakurai also touched upon DLC characters, mentioning some popular choices like Marvel’s Iron Man and Dragon Ball’s Son Goku. He knows that many of these suggestions are real, but they are hardly going to happen.
Sakurai also talked about the Smash Ballot that has been held for Super Smash Bros. For Wii U and 3DS. While it likely won’t be held again, it has helped the development of Ultimate quite a bit. Once again, he reiterated that Bayonetta was the first among the realizable characters.
Speaking about balance, Sakurai noted how Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is setting out to be among one of the most balanced entries in the series, as the win ration of every character as of March 2019 is very close, so he is at a point where he might not change much in the future and leave balance as it is.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is now available in all regions exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
