Sakurai Talks SSBU Surpassing SFII
Masahiro Sakurai’s 592nd column in this week’s issue (No.1616) of Weekly Famitsu magazine sees the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director talk about the game surpassing Street Fighter II to become the best-selling fighting game. Sakurai says that Smash is considered an action game in Japan. Even though it has suprassed SFII in sales, he still considers Capcom’s classic to be the king of fighting games still. Sakurai says a fighting game may become stale once mastered, hence why the series is designed closer to a party game. More details are found at this thread. Translation thanks to Robert Sephazon.
