Today, he announced via Twitter that he’d be starting a new YouTube channel where he’ll be posting videos explaining his thought process behind game creation and various game design choices. You can check out his introductory video here:

While there’s certainly no shortage of YouTube channels that focus on game design, it’ll definitely be interesting to get the take of an industry veteran, especially one who’s worked on so many iconic and renowned games. The channel is just a little light on content at the moment, but it’ll be populating over the next few weeks.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is now available on Switch, and more recently, the Kirby series also saw the release of Kirby’s Dream Buffet.
