Game Developers and fans who’s like to hear more insight on game creation now have one more resource thanks to Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai.
Sakurai-san recently launched his own YouTube channel Masahiro Sakurai on Creating Games, in which he promises to “reflect on his work in the games industry and offer insightful and easy-to-understand advice about game development.”
According to Sakurai-san himself, this is his personal initiative and isn’t associated with Nintendo, and the goal is “to try and help make games around the world a little more fun.”
While Nintendo is not involved, he received permission to share Smash. Bros development documents, so fans have that to look forward to as well.
Sakurai-san explained that he’s not doing this to make a profit, so he won’t run ads on the channel. He simply wants to help out and share his experience.
In order to keep things manageable and light-hearted, videos will be bite-sized, generally clocking at under five minutes.
Below you can take a look at those that have already been published, including an introduction in which Sakurai-san explains the philosophy behind the project and a video showcasing all the games he has worked on.
If you want to immediately dive into the nitty-gritty of game development it starts with the third video below.
