A fan-favorite long overdue for a sequel
Masahiro Sakurai is back with another game development video, and this one falls into the ‘Game Concepts’ category. In particular, this feature gives us a look at how Kirby Air Ride on the GameCube came together.
Kirby Air Ride was actually Sakurai’s first time making consecutive games on a single console. At that point in time, Sakurai was doing supervising work for numerous projects, including the Kirby anime series.
Why did Sakurai go back to being a director? He touches on that in this video, along with the concept behind the game, and the struggles faced. By the way, Sakurai went independent after finishing his work on Kirby Air Ride!
