Masahiro Sakurai is ready to put everything into Smash Bros Wii U and 3DS to ensure that the wait will be worth it. Writing in his Famitsu column, the Smash Bros creator said that he has cut down on Twitter and it would be best if gamers forgot about him as he makes what is arguably most eagerly anticipated Wii U game.
At the start of 2012, Sakurai said that fans would have to wait for Smash Bros Wii U and the message hasn't changed. "To put it succinctly, I'll need to have you guys wait a while longer," Sakurai reiterated in his column. "I hardly ever write anything on Twitter any longer, and that's because I think right now is the time to stop tweeting and start putting in a real effort here. If I could put it a really harsh way, I think it'd be better if I could be forgotten by gamers for a while."
Sakurai added that his Twitter posts had led to unwanted speculation about the new Wii U game. "I don't like it when a tweet or whatever leads to needless speculation getting spread around. For example, when I tweet about playing some game, some people immediately get the idea that that character is in the new Smash Bros. Then people fan the flames on it, people start to think it's really true, people get angry about it. Nobody benefits.
The message is clear. Don't expect to hear anything about Smash Bros Wii U soon. "Instead of talking about what Smash Bros. will be like, I'm just going to say 'I'm making you wait for it!' and keep going along. I want to put my all into a full-on launch that really makes that wait worth it."
Of course, Sakurai kept us waiting for Kid Icarus: Uprising but it was worth it, so we're prepared to be patient. Are you?
