Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - Sakurai talks the Hero, Banjo-Kazooie and more

PushDustIn, known from Source Gaming and his freelance translation work, has pieced together details from the latest Sakurai column. It goes in-depth about how the Hero and Banjo-Kazooie joined Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and his feelings on console wars. If you like these details, be sure to follow PushDustIn on Twitter for more awesome stuff!

Sakurai column 582 titled, "The Hero Joins the Battle! Banjo and Kazooie also Join the Battle!"
- Hero and Banjo and Kazooie are the 2nd and 3rd packs for Smash Ultimate's DLC. Players who purchase the Fighters Pass will be able to play as them in addition to Joker, and the characters in Packs 4 and 5
- there is a lot that Sakurai wants to talk about. However, he will detail their mechanics in the future. For now, he wants to focus on how Hero and Banjo and Kazooie got into Smash

Hero from Dragon Quest
- the day has finally come when Sakurai could work on Dragon Quest. Thinking about Dragon Quest, Sakurai wanted to include the legendary Command Prompt
- Sakurai decided that the command window would appear and have random spells and attacks that could be chosen. Then he decided to add a MP system as well
- there is actually a restriction on which DQ protagonists can fight with each other, but Smash was given special permission. (DQ VIII was a request from Western fans)
- reviewing the history of the DQ series, Sakurai felt nervous about including such a legendary series. He decided that the Final Smash would have past characters from DQ to showcase the series
- the decision to add voice acting was made afterwards. At the start of development, it was planned to have The Hero silent as typical in DQ. However, with DQ XI S SE added voice actor so the plans were changed. So other Heros will have voice actors and they will be announced later

- BK were incredibly request by fans in the West for a long time. Even after King K. Rool and Ridley, requests were still coming in
- Sakurai states this it was difficult for them to join Smash. While Banjo and Kazooie was originally an N64 game, and their inclusion should've been a natural one, they are now owned by Microsoft
- in the early 2000s, Rare was sold to Microsoft, and Banjo's games came out on the Xbox 360. Microsoft and Nintendo are rivals in the console space. It's usually thought that you shouldn't help our your rivals
- however, this time they were able to get the character quite easily. Sakurai would also like to thank Rare for their assistance as well. Thanks to them, Sakurai was able to satisfy many fan's requests

- this is Sakurai's personal opinion but he doesn't really care for console wars. No matter what kind of consoles come out, if there are enjoyable games, Sakurai will always respect that
- Sakurai ends the column stating that there are a lot of companies involved with Smash. He notes that his work is truly special. He wants to please all the fans of the original games so he will continue to work hard

Brawlhalla - Petra legend character added, trailer and details

Born in the chaotic nexus dimension that contains Terminus, Petra was as wild and ungovernable as her native world. From Petra’s humble beginnings buying and selling forbidden items, she fought her way up through turf wars, eventually winning control of Terminus. Before Terminus was a prison, it was a mine – the only source in the multiverse of the cryptic ore called Darkheart. The power and danger of Darkheart was so great the gods folded Terminus into its own dimension and declared it eternally bound just to quarantine the ore. Darkheart became the ultimate cosmic contraband.

Some say Petra was infected by Darkheart, others say she unlocked its power. Whatever the truth, it changed her life forever, and has brought that mythic ore and the strength it imbues to Valhalla. In Valhalla, Petra is quarrelsome, violent, brooding, unruly, and very well-liked.

Petra’s signature moves for Orb and Gauntlets are:

Side Signature – Charges up her Darkheart energy, then blasts her orb out as a projectile to the direction she’s facing.
Down Signature – Lifts into the air, charges her orb, then sends a huge blast of energy downward onto her enemies.
Neutral Signature – Sends out a flurry of energy blasts diagonally upwards, with one final blast to send her enemies flying.
Side Signature – Uses her Darkheart energy to propel forward, then connect with a flurry of punches.
Down Signature – Teleports behind her enemy, punches, teleports back in front of her enemy to catch them, then finishes them off with an energy blast from her palm.
Neutral Signature – Uses her Darkheart energy to supercharge an uppercut and propel herself diagonally upwards.

What Remains of Edith Finch releasing next week on Switch eShop

What Remains of Edith Finch has been announced for a release on Nintendo Switch. The beloved game will be coming July 4 for 2200 yen. The adventure game will take 2.2GB!

An overview follows below...

What Remains of Edith Finch is a collection of strange tales about a family in Washington state.

As Edith, you’ll explore the colossal Finch house, searching for stories as she explores her family history and tries to figure out why she's the last one in her family left alive. Each story you find lets you experience the life of a new family member on the day of their death, with stories ranging from the distant past to the present day.

The gameplay and tone of the stories are as varied as the Finches themselves. The only constants are that each is played from a first-person perspective and that each story ends with that family member's death.

Ultimately, it's a game about what it feels like to be humbled and astonished by the vast and unknowable world around us.

Created by Giant Sparrow, the team behind the first-person painting game The Unfinished Swan.
