    This thread is a petition to have Daddy Sakurai be put into the credits of Smash 5, if it comes out. Also, feel free to discuss all things Sakurai in this thread.

    Note: This is a JOKE thread. Don't get offended by anything, this was done for the memes. Also I'll move this to the joke threads if there are any.

    Edit: Actually decided to make this a serious thread now, so lets actually talk about Sakurai's decisions regarding the Smash Bros. Franchise.

    Ok, I’ll change my name to Daddy Sakurai and work for the next smash game. :troll:

    The creator of Snake actually wanted Daddy Sakurai to put Snake in Smash 4, but for some reason, Snake wasn't added. Everybody wants Snake and Wolf to be revived though, which is possible, considering they brought back Roy and Dr. Mario.

    You know whats funny? Kojima and Sakurai hate what they're known for. For Kojima, it was the Metal Gear franchise, because Konami ripped him off and made a non-Kojima Metal Gear Solid game without him. For Sakurai, it was because when he wanted to stop at Melee, the fans demanded for more games, so he had to made more games. I think Sakurai wanted to stop because he had to make the game with a trackpad.

    I don't want Snake back.

    Sakurai could have told them to have someone else do it.

    Can't argue with logic. But yeah, I guess your right, but maybe he just wanted to do it himself. Who knows?

    I've gotten a bit tired of Samurai.

    He seems to only have a vague sense of where he wants these games to go but his decisions are largely untenable or hard to understand. For example, it makes sense to me that he wanted there to be a swimming mechanic, as having a new terrain interaction could make combat more interesting. Unfortunately the way he implemented it was completely asinine and useless. Characters are completely unable to fight while they're in the water so swimming serves no real purpose other than seeing them get swimming/drowning animations. It's a completely pointless addition.

    If it were me, I would choose to give the characters the ability to fight underwater. They sink to the lowermost platform and fight the same way, just with some lag to their movements. Double jump is replaced with an infinite "swim" jump, ala Mario Bros, where pressing the jump button continuously causes the character to rise, and they can swim as much as they'd like. They'd still be able to drown and sink to the bottom of the screen, but it only occurs if they run out of air while over 100% damage.

    Furthermore, I'm not sure who it is in charge of choosing music to be in Smash, but the selections they've made for Smash 4 are ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. They don't pick any good battle music from any of the games, or remix them in interesting ways, instead they put in atrocious music copy/pasted from the source game without any consideration as to how it functions in a battle context.

    One of the Pikmin stages, for example, has relaxing nature sounds as one of the music tracks. And of course I'm sure we're all dead tired of hearing the exact same grating, acoustic guitar/whistling melody tracks from Smashville and Town & City. THESE ARE NOT TRACKS THAT FUNCTION IN A BATTLE SETTING. They are tracks to put your baby to sleep.

    If you really feel that having battle-remixed tracks or high-energy, fast-paced original tracks from the game would not pay homage to the games that the stages are from, maybe it's time to consider not having those games be Smash stages in the first place. Animal Crossing is not a combat-heavy game by any means whatsoever, it makes no sense why it has any stages in a fighting game at all, much less one of the most competitive battle stages in the game. Its stage layout should be given to another franchise with more action.

    Smash needs pumping, energetic music filling every single one of its stages. Not sleepytime relaxing forest sounds for baby to fall asleep to.

    It is now because Sakurai should bring them back.

    This is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.


    On topic, I think my ideal is Sakurai play a supervisor role, it'd give us the chance of fresh eyes while hopefully keeping around his boatload of content

    Event match
    Large number of stages
    Large number of characters
    A lot of freedom to customise how you play (item switch, stock Vs time, special mode, stock time, random stage switch, omega, seriously the amount of customisation you can do to standard smash is insane)
    Large number of items
    Event matchs
    The challenge board
    Trophies
    Stadium mode
    Stage builder
    Classic

    And more

    And you think the director would say, "**** that," if Sakurai weren't involved...?

    No, but Sakurai would just be a little more reassuring that is there. Other newer games don't have that level of content, Splatoon, ARMS, even Mario Kart has lost some content over the years doesn't have as much as previous entries (no mission mode, custom laps, Mario Kart 7 didn't even have Vs mode and 8 had no battle tracks on Wii U)
