“It isn’t a matter of ‘if the next game has 50 characters, that’ll be enough.’ There is a certain charm to games that have huge casts of playable characters, but they tend to have issues with game balance and it becomes very difficult to fine-tune each character and have them all feel distinctive…. In terms of quantity, we’ve probably already reached the limit of what’s feasible. I think a change of direction may be what’s needed.” - Masahiro Sakurai
I think Sakurai is really going to change things up for this new Smash Bros.. That may ruffle quite a few feathers as we slowly find out what the franchise is going to do next. I'm both excited and nervous!
