Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Director Is Impressed By PS5’s SSD, But Wants More Storage Space

Don't we all, sir.

The Super Smash Bros. series has become something of a legendary series in the world of gaming. Beginning as a simple enough concept of Nintendo characters crossing over for a brawl, it’s evolved into something of a celebration of gaming’s history. The latest entry, Ultimate, has sold nearly 20 million copies, making it one of Nintendo’s biggest franchises. In something of a fun real life crossover, its Director has some thoughts on the PS5.

Writing for Weekly Famitsu, Masahiro Sakurai revealed that he was one of those lucky enough to nab a PS5 at launch. He talked in length about the system, and overall, he seems to be pretty happy with the console. He specifically talks about being impressed by the SSD and the speed of playing games, saying, “Using [the console], I thought every action was quick and nimble. Even when loading, depending on the situation, it was surprisingly speedy. The feeling of this rhythm was wonderful.”

The only complaints he has is that he wished the system had a folder system and, probably the one many had pre-launch and post-launch, was the lack of storage in the system. If you’re unaware, the PS5 has a custom 825 GB SSD with only about 664 GB of usable space. Sakurai has already almost filled up his console with previous PS4 games, and just wants more. Big thanks to Kotaku for translating.

Of course, you can point out the irony here that Sakurai works exclusively with Nintendo, whose Switch isn’t renowned for its robust storage. But you know, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the Smash Bros. Director wasn’t exactly expressing deep critique or concern by any means, and he seems to be pretty happy with his PS5, so you know, just take it for what it is.
