Oh, sorry for not clarifying! It would be a live show at a theme park auditorium. One with digital and practical effects and the like.

Alicia Stella is the biggest name in leaks on Universal Studios projects, and she has been mentioning that Universal is considering it. In her words, it is something the creator of Smash is apparently pushing for.

So if that attraction has character meet and greets and a gift shop, I could see Samus merch ending up in the parks since Samus is one of the most featured Smash characters.
ah that’s.... interesting!


also It feels weird to read “creator of smash” instead of Sakurai lol

Yeah. lol I'd guess she refers to him that way just because for theme park fans who follow her but also aren't up to date on Nintendo IP, the significance of Sakurai's name may not be immediately obvious to them.

I think I remember Sakurai having a recent book where he commented on Super Nintendo World, specifically about how the budgets for the parks is on a scale unseen by video game budgets. (I think it was like the park is more expensive than the lifetime budget of the entire Smash Bros. series and then some?) So he's definitely showing some interest in the park so far.

Edit: Found it here.

One thing I noticed about Monolith during their hiring is that they hire graduates straight from school, which is great. Earlier this year I believe they hired around 8 students. I really like that. Now, with Monolith doing a remaster of Xenoblade Chronicles all these kids get to familiarize themselves with working on something easier.
