Smash Bros. Ultimate creator Masahiro Sakurai moves to working from home on DLC

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Masahiro Sakurai announced he’s set to work from home to continue work on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC.
Masahiro Sakurai, game director of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, will now work from home on forthcoming DLC plans due to the coronavirus.

Announcing the move on Twitter, Sakurai explained he’ll now supervise the project from a distance as the situation escalates in Japan.

In the post (translated by PushDustin), Sakurai wrote: “I am now working remotely. Essentially, I’m supervising the project from a distance.

“Ultimate is a very high-security project, which makes it difficult to take it out (and work). However, we have no choice, but to do it.

“Everyone, let’s do our best to get through this!!”

The first DLC character in the second Fighters Pass will arrive in June, which is set to be a fighter from Switch exclusive ARMS.

Sakurai previously stated the future DLC could be delayed due to the virus outbreak, with six more fighters set to be released in total.

But who could the other contenders be? Here’s the list of the latest rumours and leaks, including Crash Bandicoot.
