“The trailer of Cloud can not leave anyone indifferent”
Since 2013 and the release of Smash Bros. 3DS and Wii U, announcement videos revealing each new fighter in the saga are inextricably linked to Smash Bros. games. Also inextricably linked to the license, he directs every installment of the Masahiro Sakurai franchise. In an article published by Nintendo yesterday, the iconic director returned to comment on the various announcement trailers for each character. Below an overview:
Even today, the trailer of Cloud can not leave anyone indifferent. The opening sequence is particularly long, which makes it so quiet and peaceful, just like the intro to the original game. It portends a certain novelty, regardless of the fighter it is attached to. There are many references, for example in the courses, which explains why the video is longer than other downloadable fighters. † Masahiro Sakurai, in the Cloud trailer.
For this one, we tried to change the style and give the video a cartoon feel. Some of that was budget, but she has a steady pace and shows how seriously Little Mac takes her workouts. I find the result convincing. The arcade terminal at the beginning is inspired by the one in the game Punch-Out!! original. Even then Nintendo made frequent use of two screens. † Masahiro Sakurai, in the Little Mac trailer.
An extra dose of nostalgia?
Unfortunately, it’s impossible to get your hands on Sora for now: he’s the last character integrated into the title, and these are only the first eighteen trailers since the release of Smash Bros. 3DS that have been unveiled. On this subject, it is also Sakurai’s character presentation videos that are inextricably linked to the Smash series, both for the excitement of the players who came to discover a new gameplay and for the enthusiasm and humor that Sakurai brought during the videos. †
