It’s regrettably over. Tremendous Smash Bros. Final has formally been laid to relaxation in the present day, as director Masahiro Sakurai received’t submit any extra every day screenshots from the sport on his Twitter, one thing he’s carried out since December 2019. The ultimate nail has been positioned. It’s the top of an period.
It shouldn’t come as any actual shock that Sakurai would cease posting in regards to the 2018 sport. Whereas he stated Final won’t cap the sequence as a complete, Kingdom Hearts’ Sora did make up the sport’s closing DLC in October 2021, signaling some sorta finish for Tremendous Smash Bros. Final as we all know it. It was solely a matter of time earlier than Sakurai and firm pushed the sport out to greener pastures, and once you’ve been engaged on one thing for seven years, I assume you gotta say goodbye sooner or later, proper? All issues come to an finish.

And that’s what Sakurai did, as he introduced on Twitter he received’t submit any extra “every day Smash Final screens” for the foreseeable future. Nonetheless, he’s been “fascinated by beginning one thing new” and can reveal no matter these plans are quickly. Since Sakurai’s been posting photos of the sport since December 2019, making up roughly 800 or so—if not actually 1000’s extra—photographs, we figured we’d share a few of our fav screens he’s curated as a solution to rejoice what appears to be Tremendous Smash Bros. Final’s sluggish burial.
What makes Sakurai not posting every day screens a specific bummer is two-fold. One, every picture is comparatively prime quality, simple to nab for press kits and the like. However then two, the framing of every one is fairly distinctive, with characters posing in methods you wouldn’t usually be capable to seize throughout actual matches. It’s one thing of an artwork that Sakurai received’t bless us with any extra.

So really, might Tremendous Smash Bros. Final relaxation in (digital) peace. I do know it’s not useless within the conventional sense. The sport will nonetheless be playable at residence and at tournaments (for so long as Nintendo makes it obtainable). Nonetheless, Sakurai abruptly ending the every day posts positive seems like an finish to me. Cue sobbing emoji.
