Sakurai: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighter Pass 2 Content Now Developed Remotely

Apr 7, 2020

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighter Pass 2 content is now being developed remotely and supervised by Masahiro Sakurai.

The creator of the Super Smash Bros. series took to Twitter to share that he’s essentially supervising the project from a distance. Due to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate being a high-security project, it’s rather hard to take the project home and actually work on it. According to Sakurai, however, given the circumstances, there’s no other way to work on the project. A translation of Sakurai's tweet has been included below, thanks @PushDustin.
