Sakurai of the official Super Smash Bros. Brawl Dojo has made what may be his last post:
"This Smash blog has spanned about 300 posts in almost 11 months, but now it is time to say goodbye".
"Before creating this site, I knew I wanted it to be updated 5 days a week and support several languages. It was clear that this would be a massive scale for a website dedicated to a single game".
"A lot of people around me were particularly concerned when I told them I planned to write blog posts while development was ongoing and continue to provide updates. Some argued, some just looked concerned, and others asked, "Can you really do this?!"".
"And all of the text in the articles was written by yours truly, Masahiro Sakurai. Make no mistake. But the real credit for making the unthinkable possible should go to the Brawl staff who took screenshots and did follow-up work, and the Nintendo home-page staff who did the updates".
"I also must thank the localization staff of Nintendo of America, who did the translation from Japanese to English, as well as the language specialists on the European production staff who handled the translation to several more languages".
"I feel gratitude for those who helped that I can barely express in words. This site has been supported by so many staff members".
"I created the Dojo with the intention of offering breaking news-type updates prior to the release of the game, and organizing the site so that it could be used as a database of features in the game after its release".
"Now that Brawl is available, I am hoping that players will continue to use the site as a resource for information".
"Also, there's always a chance that I will need to update sometime in the future with some kind of announcement".
"Thank you, everyone!".
"Masahiro Sakurai, Sora Ltd".
So that about raps it up.
