Masahiro Sakurai has outlined has admiration for Sony’s PS4.
“I don’t care for faction wars like Nintendo versus Sony,” the Smash Bros director told Famitsu, as translated by Gematsu. “PlayStation 4 is good-looking, the DualShock 4 is light and using it feels good, Remote Play can reliably handle even action games, and the network functionality is well done.
“The machine power is another attractive factor, there is no loss of detail in the image, and it looks so natural and spontaneous that you often forget that you’re playing a game.
“It’s a good thing if creators can make stylish games without putting in a ton of time on that. I hope that a masterpiece will come with bells tolling. This is definitely not a period that will leave us without the possibility of playing rich games.”
Super Smash Bros is due out some time this year on Wii U and 3DS.
