Masahiro Sakurai is a video game developer, most known as the creator of Kirby and the main creative force behind the Super Smash Bros. series.


Life at HAL

Sakurai started working at HAL Laboratory where he created Kirby at 19 years of age. He continued working there until August 5, 2003, which made many believe that the Kirby and Super Smash Bros.series would no longer be made. He resigned seeking more freedom and  was not happy with the structure of HAL, or the sequelization of the industry.

After HAL

After leaving HAL, Sakurai began working with Q Entertainment with Tetsuya Muzuguchi, which resulted in the creation of Meteos, a game for the Nintendo DS.

In September 2005, he announced his own company, Sora, Ltd., in which they have completed their first game, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, with support form other companies. He updated the Super Smash Bros .Brawl website, the Super Smash Bros. Dojo, with information about the game. He also writes a column in the Famitsu magazine.
