Masahiro Sakurai Will Appear On Harada’s Bar This Weekend

Harada's Bar

Talk about a meeting of the minds as Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada has invited Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai onto Harada’s Bar, a new show that began on YouTube this past March and has become a weekly show.

Each week new videos drop and this weekend a special episode will drop with Sakurai as the guest. The news comes from Harada’s Twitter, where he announced the famed Nintendo director as his next guest. Harada dropped a preview this week that features him walking through the city on his way to meet Sakurai.

I don’t expect to hear much in terms of reveals for the final fighter coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate but I am excited to hear these two developers talk to each other and discuss shop. There’s nothing as exciting to me as hearing veteran devs discussing their craft.

I’ve only tuned in a few times, most notably when Harada spoke about the cancelled Street Fighter x Tekken game that was never officially cancelled until this year. That episode was interesting as we learned a bit about the game took so long to be cancelled, giving viewers an idea of the development that went into the anticipated project that never came to be.

Update: The video with Masahiro Sakurai is now live:


Bobby has been gaming since he was old enough to walk. Since then, the interest has only grown stronger, and here we are today. Follow Bobby on Twitter, and just go with it. @bpashalidis
