We want to know more about Masahiro Sakurai's diet and grooming habits, as he continues to defy the passing of time - the rigours of developing Super Smash Bros. have been tough on the game designer, yet he retains an admirably youthful look.

Masahiro Sakurai turned 45 on 3rd August - at the time of publication it's actually 4th August in Japan. Having made his breakthrough on the Kirby franchise in the early '90s - being a key part of the creative team for the IP's first game - he's gone on to create and lead the lucrative and much-loved Super Smash Bros. series. He has turned his hand to other enjoyable games, too, leading development on DS title Meteos and the brilliant Kid Icarus: Uprising on 3DS.

Sakurai-san and his team are currently at work completing DLC characters for Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS; it'll be fascinating to see what the much admired game creator does next.

Happy Birthday, Sakurai-san; we hope you took a day off.
