Masahiro Sakurai’s Famitsu column will end in 18 years

Smash Bros creator and all-around good guy Masahiro Sakurai announced that his Weekly Famitsu column will end next month. Mr. Sakurai began writing in-depth columns in the Japanese game magazine Famitsu 18 years ago in 2013. Although he will retire from Famitsu, it is not clear whether he will retire from the video game industry. He has been involved in the industry since he started working at Hall Labs in 1989 and founded Kirby 32 years ago.
