Today, Super Smash Bros. series director Masahiro Sakurai is celebrating his 51st birthday – and it looks like he'll be celebrating in style.

After posting his usual Smash Bros. screenshot of the day on Twitter this morning, Sakurai was flooded with 'happy birthday' messages from fans. He took the time to thank everyone for their kind words, before sharing a look at the presents he received from the rest of the Super Smash Bros. team.

The Smash team is clearly made up of a very fine group of people indeed, as an RX-105 XI Gundam suit can be seen within the pile of gifts – something that wouldn't look out of place at Nintendo Life towers.

From all of us here at Nintendo Life, happy birthday and best wishes, Sakurai-san!
