TOKYO, Japan — Nintendo have shocked the video game industry today by announcing that their next major release will be a mobile game based off genderbent representations of leading Nintendo villains titled Super Smash Villain Sisters.
The game will be developed in conjunction with Cygames, creators of the highly popular Granblue Fantasy and The iDOLM@STER Starlight Stage, and a company which Nintendo bought a 5% interest earlier this year. A Cygames spokesperson stated to Anime Maru that the company hopes they can do for Nintendo villains what Kantai Collection has done for battle ships, and Fate/Grand Order has done for mythological heroes.
“Fire Emblem Heroes was a huge success last year, but we’ve heard feedback from the fans that they didn’t like the amount of game play and overall thinking required to enjoy it,” Nintendo CEO Shuntaro Furukawa told the media. “We are hoping to tone back the gameplay in our newest project, and focus entirely on what gatcha fans want by turning the horniness even further up from Fire Emblem Heroes, if that’s possible.
The project will be spearheaded by Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai. Sakurai tweeted his excitement for the project: “By the time the Super Crown meme was conceived, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was already too far along to replace all of its characters with cute girls. So I immediately gave up on Ultimate and started work on releasing this far more interesting gatcha game as soon as possible.”
Sakurai followed this tweet by saying, “You can still buy Smash Ultimate if you want I guess, but Super Smash Villain Sisters will be out before the end of the year, so probably better just to wait.”
Although no gameplay has been revealed at this stage, promotional art have shown genderbent versions of Bowser, Ganondorf, King Dedede. The game will even feature Dr. Robotnik, who Sega provided freely since “they’ve been dealing with this kind of weird fetish shit for years.”
