On the eve of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's launch, someone made a Sakurai amiibo


Every so often a custom amiibo comes along that’s either aesthetically impressive or warms the heart. This one checks both boxes. Born from the mind of artist George Crudo, this new figure depicts a picturesque, yet also cartoonish version of Smash director/heart and soul Masahiro Sakurai.

So how did this whole thing come about? Well according to Crudo himself, he used a sanctioned rendering from artist Sean Hicks for the base, then managed to craft a 3D rendition of it. Crudo calls it “gratitude for 20 years of his dedication to creating Smash.”He hopes that with enough attention that Nintendo will send it Sakurai’s way.

Good luck!
