Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Sakurai Explains What the Logo for Smash Represents

Masahiro Sakurai reveals the meaning behind the Super Smash Bros. symbol in a recent video -- representing clashing franchises and free-for-all

In a recent video on YouTube, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s director Masahiro Sakurai explains what the iconic Smash Bros. logo represents.

According to a translation by Kyle Mclain on Twitter, Sakurai says the two lines intersecting represents the crossing-over of different franchises. While the circle is separated into four parts to represent the four-player multiplayer.

Now, the two newest entries, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, may offer up to eight-person multiplayer but that doesn’t take away the original four-player free-for-all where the game started.

Speaking of multiplayer, players recently complained about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate having issues with the online component. It looks as though Nintendo is already looking to address some of those issues as well as character adjustments in the latest patch.

With changes throughout the series, it’s always fun to see these calls to the past with not only the characters in the series but the logo as well. Read up on our review for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, to hear our thoughts on the ambitious take for the party-fighting game series.

It’s looking like a bright future for Smash Bros. Ultimate as well for DLC characters with Piranha Plant and Joker from Persona 5 set to be the first of the batch. Speculations are high on who could be next, but here’s hoping we get another character announcement soon.
