Today will see a new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighter join the ranks of over 70 others, acknowledging ARMS and kicking (punching?) off the second Fighter Pass in one half-hourish presentation. That video’s going to reveal something else though, that being a glimpse into the home of the series’ creator Masahiro Sakurai.


Thanks to ongoing work from home practices, which have been embraced as best they can be by Sakurai-san and his team, the broadcast won’t be from the familiar room setting of the last few. Instead it’ll be (presumably) from his at-home workspace, offering a glimpse due to the necessity of the times.

Whether he’ll be putting up ARMS banners, providing his own out-of-frame laughter somehow, or sharing anything from his personal collection remains to be seen but it’s certainly going to be one of the most interesting Mr. Sakurai Presents yet. You’ll be able to catch it live here as it begins airing at 7 a.m. PT.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
