    I guess all his play-testing of Kid Icarus finally got to him.

    Morbid joke aside, hopefully Sakurai heals up soon. Can't be easy to play-test Smash Bros with one arm.

    He got smashed, bro.

    All jokes aside, that certainly sounds awful. Hopefully he heals up, or finds some sort of treatment - and hopefully it doesn't cost him an arm and a leg.

    Now fans would literally give an arm and a leg for the next Smash Bros. game.

    If the development somehow gets delayed, people will be all up in arms about it.

    That is some dedication. You can tell how much he enjoys what he does if he is willing to both joke about and work through such an injury.

    It seems he's not quite armed and ready for development. :(

    I have no idea why, but this somehow makes me think that smash bros will be even better...

    he could just leave it to Bandai namco who will be lending a hand anyway, they can't possibly make it worse and more unbalanced than ssbb

    Sorry, but no! I don't want a Super Tekken Bros. I would rather wait more than have a Tekken with Nintendo characters...

    And I couldn't care less about the game being delayed. There hasn't been a smash brothers game I liked since the first one.

    But dam it must suck to have your arm that badly injured. What happened to his arm? I mean what did he do to get those injuries?
