While we don’t typically get to speak about him right here on our PC-focused videogame website, Super Smash Bros (and Kirby) creator Masahiro Sakurai is among the most notable figures in gaming fandom. It seems that he has pursuits aside from fighting games and holding Waluigi out of Smash, too – he’s been enjoying Cyberpunk 2077, and was “deeply moved” by how developer CD Projekt Red dealt with refunds for the sport.
“Dealing with refunds is something that makes even me feel deeply moved,” Sakurai says in a current Famitsu column, as famous by Ryokutya2089 and translated by Siliconera. “This kind of sincerity was never heard of before.” Sakurai provides, “I support this game from the bottom of my heart for sincerely dealing with [the refunds].”
Cyberpunk 2077 launched in a messy state, particularly on consoles. The buggy sport was pulled from the PlayStation Store, and CD Projekt quickly promised that gamers would get refunds, and the corporate ensured that may occur “out of our own pocket if necessary.” The launch has drawn an investigation from a Polish regulatory bureau.
Sakurai mentions his personal work on Meteos, a puzzle sport launched in 2005 for the DS, by which accelerated growth on the finish of manufacturing grew to become difficult. (Meteos is nice, by the best way. Go play Meteos if you happen to haven’t.)
It appears Sakurai is a real multiplatform gamer. While he additionally performed Cyberpunk on the PlayStation 4 Pro, “I played it on PC in the beginning. I encountered bugs multiple times.”
