In the latest issue of popular Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, Super Smash Bros. Creator Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed that there will be no sequel after Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
It was officially confirmed in an interview with Sakurai that there will be no sequels after Ultimate in the Smash Bros. series. He clarified that he is not thinking of a sequel after the latest title. He did say that he cannot be certain that this will be the end of the Super Smash Bros. series.
Sakurai was asked if he was going to release a Smash game in the future or not, but he stated that he must think this through first before saying anything. He clarified that currently he does not see any path where a Smash game can be produce without him at the helm or getting involved. He then revealed that they did actually try to leave the production to someone else, but it did not go well. He did not specify which title it was, but it must have been the shame of the series.
The Smash creator then stated that if Nintendo were to continue the series for some wild reason, he would have to go to the company and debate with them to know if it will succeed or not. He is serious of this since he thinks he needs to be at least involved in the production if they were going to make a possible sequel launch a success.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is now available on Nintendo Switch. The last DLC character added to the roster was Sora from the King Hearts series.
