Yacht Club discusses what Nintendo franchise they'd like to work on

Yacht Club has been working on Shovel Knight for over 5 years now. That's an insane amount of time for a small team to spend on their debut game, but it's certainly worked out for them! Not surprisingly, the team has aspirations to work on some other titles as well. In an interview with Nintendo Force magazine, the team was asked what Nintendo properties they'd like to take a crack at. Yacht Club's Sean Velasco had this to say.

"...Rusty's Real Deal Baseball. I can't believe he wasn't in Smash. Other than that, I'd just love to hear what Nintendo would think we could do a good job on. I'd like to help them in whatever way we could."

Now that's an answer no one expected! With how skilled Yacht Club is, I think any franchise they'd tackle would be a a hit!

Sakurai explains the meaning behind the Smash Bros. logo

The Yoiko x Super Smash Bros. Ultimate episode we recently shared had a special guest. If you didn't watch, you missed a special appearance by Masahiro Sakurai! During his time on the episode, Sakurai talked about a number of things, including the meanings behind the Smash Bros. logo. According to Sakurai, there are two meanings.

- the intersecting lines are meant to represent the crossover nature of the series
- the four sections of the logo represent 4 person multiplayer

Play-Asia listing says a Shovel Knight gold amiibo is on the way

According to a Play-Asia listing, a gold version of the Shovel Knight amiibo is on the way. They don't have a release date for the amiibo, but they do have a placeholder listing for the release. I have the standard blue Shovel Knight amiibo, but I think I'll have to double-dip for this one!

Thanks to NintendoSoup for the heads up!
