With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to cause countries to declare a state of emergency, Japan is on the way to doing the same. the director of the Super Smash Bros. series, Masahiro Sakurai has stated on his Twitter account that he will be working remotely from home to continue developing the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass 2. He also says that due to the nature of developing the game, security is very high and it was not an easy decision to be made as regards to working remotely.

I am also going to be working remotely.
In other words, I will be supervising from home. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate needs to maintain extremely high security and is therefore difficult to work on remotely, but it is time to do this.
Good luck everyone and let’s get through this!
