Why don't they just fire Sakurai and get a team to keep updating the game?
The quality of smash will drop if/when Sakurai leaves the development team for good. You can love or hate the guy all you want, but I simply cannot see any other dev putting as much heart and soul into smash bros as Sakurai has.

And that, my friends, is based.

Bruh, I need to wait until the next smash just for the hope of having a kirby above the low tier. He is trash since melee and they are buffing links, cloud, inkling who are already good enough. I really don't understand this balance team and probably never will.
