The downloadable content (DLC) campaign for Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS is coming to an end soon. That’s according to game director Masahiro Sakurai, who shared the insight as part of Making of Fire Emblem: 25 Years of Development Secrets, translated by SourceGaming (via GoNintendo).
He was talking about the future of the Fire Emblem series, and whether or not any upcoming Smash Bros. games might include characters from that franchise.
“How much a character will please the players, how unique they are–there are a lot of factors that go into deciding a character’s inclusion,” he explained. “I don’t know whether Fire Emblem will have many more games in the future, but it’s not as if we have a stipulation that says, ‘We have to include the protagonist of the next Fire Emblem game.’ Moreover, we don’t even know if there’ll be another Smash game.”
