Earlier this week, Masahiro Sakurai revealed the final DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. In case you did somehow miss it - it's Sora from Square Enix's long-running Kingdom Hearts series.

Sakurai's all-star brawler for Switch isn't the only thing coming to an end, either. As you might recall, his regular Famitsu columns will end. Believe it or not, but he's been writing this column since 2003. In it, he's discussed Smash Bros. and touched on many other game releases over the years.

Although Sakurai is drawing the curtains on Smash Ultimate and his column, this does not necessarily mean retirement is around the corner. Earlier this year in May, he touched on how he liked the "idea of early retirement" but clarified he would not be retiring from the game industry.

"I am thinking of ending this column a while after releasing all the DLCs for the Smash Brothers SP. Within this year, in any case. I won't be retiring from the game industry completely, though."

Apart from a well-deserved break, what would you like to see from Mr. Sakurai next? Leave a comment below.
