Smash Bros. creator wants to make an HD videogame

The creator of Super Smash Bros., Masahiro Sakurai, would like to create a HD high definition videogame. That’s according to his own Tweets between himself, some of his Twitter followers (in Japanese) and, most interesting of all, between Team ICO head Fumito Ueda (creator of ICO and Shadow of the Colossus and the upcoming The Last Guardian) and himself.

The main most interesting Tweet comes when he is when talking about Crysis 2, the game he is currently playing through, and how great the graphics are. He tweets “For today’s HD games, is it no good if you can’t make graphics of this level?” and later replies with, “I’d like to try HD at some point. I wonder if I’ll get the opportunity?” when replying to a follower’s comments on the game.

He is also a mutual follower of Team ICO’s Fumito Ueda who is also playing Crysis 2. Both of them talk about how they sometimes get games before they are released, thanks to Sony (and likely other publishers) and that the locatlization for the Japanese version of Crysis 2 was very well done. They’ve also registered each other so they can play together.

Very interesting.

Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai is currently working on the awesome looking Kid Icarus: Uprising for the Nintendo 3DS, which was developed by Project Sora; which although Independent, Nintendo owns a 70% stake in the company. It would definitely be interesting to see Sakurai work on a competing console to the Wii though. Maybe now that he has talked about it, something will come of it.

Here is a video of gameplay from Kid Icarus: Uprising.
