An aggravated gamer from Japan sent a tweet to Masahiro Sakurai, the lead game designer behind Smash Bros. on the 3DS and Wii U, stating that Namco Bandai is “incompetent” and should not be involved with the development of the game. The gamer also asked Sakurai to relinquish his own involvement in the process.
Sakurai was not pleased with this, of course, and responded with:
Knock off looking down on them with narrow-minded thinking.
It will be curious to see how this plays out though. It seems odd for them to bring in a third-party company, but I doubt Nintendo would make such a decision without careful consideration. Let’s hope they don’t regret it.
