Video: Sakurai Doesn’t Make Kirby Games Anymore, Y’know

Here at Nintendo Life, we know our audience is a smart bunch of cookies, so we know that you’re all confident in the knowledge that Masahiro Sakurai – known most recently for his work on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – hasn’t worked on a Kirby game in quite some time. Nor, indeed, has Nintendo itself!

That doesn’t mean, however, that folks in the wider circle of the internet don’t occasionally need a bit of a history lesson; it seems that quite a few people have been crediting both Sakurai and Nintendo for the likes of Kirby and the Forgotten Land. Well, our video extraordinaire Felix has put together a wonderful piece explaining the history behind Kirby, its creator Sakurai, and the studio HAL Laboratory.

Be sure to check it out and let us know if you thought Sakurai was behind some of the more recent Kirby games – be honest, now!
