Sure, sure, we've seen Sakurai's insane gaming setup, but wouldn't you like to know more about the couch he was sitting on during the latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighter reveal? Obsessive fans in Japan think they've now identified the exact model - or at least the brand of the couch - he sits on when he's at home.
According to the Twitter user @Dragon_lily, it's apparently a design by Japanese company Nitori. The couch featured in the first tweet (below) may not necessarily be the correct size and is more likely to be a two-seater, as noted by @SaberSnake.
Twitter user @Cheesemeister3k says the first model on display - priced at 161,029 Yen - equates to $1,506.42 USD. The two-seater is valued at 99,900 Yen, which is about $931.96 USD. Some fans have supposedly gone to furniture stores to try it out.
Unsurprisingly, this isn't the first time an item of furniture has been identified by Nintendo fans during a broadcast. As you might recall, the former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé was spotted using an old Herman Miller chair, and a petition was then created to get him a new one.
What did you think of Sakurai's couch? Were you impressed with his gaming setup? Tell us below.
Nitori confirmed as the next DLC fighter.
I’m not sure whether I should be impressed or worried for Sakurai’s safety. I’d rather his mummified corpse wasn’t found stuffed in a deranged fan’s extraordinarily plush sofa.
I couldn't care less about Sakurai's furniture. If he was shown chewing gum then Nintendo fanboys would be in Japan's landfills the next day trying to find it & sell it for 100000 Euros online.
It looks very comfortable. Personally, I would like to know where Kana Chan's (WWE Wrestler Asuka and Youtuber) couch came from. It looks really nice, though I will say that the chair reminds me of Sakura just by its look alone. Is that weird?
Have yall noticed that sakurais game setup looks a LOT like the melee trophy room? You don't think that...
It's crazy to think that Toby Fox probably played Smash with Sakurai on that same couch.
Apparently some people have been quarantined for too long.
Damn, that looks like a comfy couch.
This is stalker level stuff that is gonna make Sakurai probably seriously regret filming at home...
It seems like a normal couch imo.
Nintendo Life at its finest with it's weird and wacky articles. What were you guys expecting, a couch to be a Smash character? A cell phone for Smash? Literally everything for Smash? Innuendos for Smash it is if my dirty mind wanted to be that way
His living room setup is giving me anxiety.
He's a smart guy. It will probably turn out that it wasn't really his house. It's a trap. 😉
Man sakurai sure looks tired or sick. He should pass the torch to someone else.
@SSJW Nah, Super Smash Brothers fans would be doing this even without quarantine.
knows what you mean!
His Final Smash is a pelvic thrust.
That's what I have too.
@The-Chosen-one you know, I think it's just age finally showing itself. Believe it or not, the man's turning 50 this year.
@Cool_Squirtle or not long enough, some of these people maybe should be in quarantine for life....
This is insane, people have too much time
Yeah that's true i forgot his age, still seeing is as someone below 40 hahah.
These guys never age. 😂
@Heavyarms55 good grief. Next thing "fans" will try to pinpoint his home location by using brief images from outside his window
It's an amazing looking couch. I wonder what tvs he has.
It's official: The internet has way too much time on its hands.
But what about his cushions?
The real question is are all those plants real?
I remember in the early '90s, a Nintendo Power interview asked Miyamoto if he was ever recognized in public, and he responded like "the fans who would recognize me are probably at home playing video games".
I bet times have changed since then.
Didn't he also have to avoid speaking too much at one point, or fans would go crazy with speculation?
I clicked to see if that was all the article was... I was unimpressed to find it was. I didn't read it but the picture was fun to look at. It sure looks like a small living room if that plant pot on the left is also in a corner. I am somewhat surprised. It also looks nice and minimalist, though.
