Mai Shiranui will not be joining Super Smash Bros. Ultimate because the game is "for good boys and girls of many different ages"

Mai oh Mai!

In the recent Terry Bogard reveal live-stream from Masahiro Sakurai, many SNK cameo appearances were announced. One major character missing however, was Mai Shiranui. Sakurai gave a reason for her lack of inclusion, as "Smash is for good boys and girls of many different ages." Mai is known for her scandalous clothing and fan-service heavy character design, so it doesn't come as too much of a surprise that her character would not be allowed to join Super Smash Bros. It seems that Bayonetta will be as far as sexiness goes in terms of fighters in the Nintendo published franchise.

Amiibo for 'Dark Samus' and 'Richter Belmont' revealed, releasing January 17th, 2020

Two new Amiibo coming next January

Alongside Sakurai showing off the previously announced Simon Belmont, Incineroar, & Chrom Amiibo (releasing November 15th), Nintendo took to Twitter to reveal two more upcoming Amiibo. Dark Samus and Richter Belmont will be hitting store shelves on January 17th, 2020. Collectors are sure to be happy with these detailed looking figures! Check out the box-art for the Amiibo below.

Release the fury!

This iconic fighter from the Fatal Fury series of fighting games is the fourth fighter in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass. Using his Power Wave and Burning Knuckle, earn your title as The King of Fighters!

As the live-stream with Masahiro Sakurai finished up, it's time for Terry Bogard to join the battle! Challenger Pack 4 is now available for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and is available through the fighters pass or individually for $5.99. As always, purchasing the character also includes a brand new stage (King of Fighters Stadium). 50 music tracks are also included, which makes this new DLC fighter a more than OK deal.

Masahiro Sakurai's controller collection, living room setup, and more details revealed

Sakurai and the legend of the 12 PlayStations

Masahiro Sakurai is nothing short of a legend. It's always interesting to find out new details on his work life, as well as his personal life. With special thanks to @nokoloc and @PushDustIn on Twitter, we have full translated details from Sakurai's latest column. Check out the summary below!

- Sakurai bought two Nintendo Switch Online Super Famicom Controllers.

- He enjoys the feel of the Playstation 4 'Revolution Unlimited Pro Controller', he owns one himself.

- Astral Chain was difficult for him to play due to his tendonitis, so he purchased a Switch rapid-fire controller to help with those specific sequences.

- Sakurai owns over 60 controllers across all platforms, not including the ones in his main home. He forgets why he bought some of them.

- The initial reason Sakurai had so many controllers, was because he wanted four of each for 4-player multiplayer. Then other various reasons for controller purchases caused the amount he owns to be as high as it is.

- His second home is closer to work, so he doesn't have as long of a commute. He returns to his main house on the weekends (picture above is from his main house).

- He personally owns four Switches, two in each home. He has two TVs per home as well.

- Sakurai's main house is more like home, his second house is used as his own personal office.

- He owns six PlayStation 4s and six PlayStation 3s across his two homes (three of each per house). He likes to compete against guests in various games, using his multiple displays.

- Organization helps Sakurai keep his gaming items easily accessible. He includes labels on his HDMI cables, boxes to separate controllers, and other various methods. For his classic 80s/90s hardware, he uses a storage unit underground.

- It's difficult managing all of his different hardware. He charges his controllers before he plays.

- To avoid anything being overwritten, Sakurai always has things saved to multiple consoles. He mostly uses the cloud for his saves, so he needs to be prepared to have the ability to download an update twice.
