It’s with a heavy heart that we present today’s pic of the day from Masahiro Sakurai’s Director’s Room, as it’s the final one to be posted. Every weekday for the last¬†18 months, Sakurai has posted a screenshot from either the 3DS or Wii U versions of Super Smash Bros, with over 500 screenshots captured as we watched the games develop.

There is reason to celebrate though, as the Wii U version finally launches in Japan tomorrow! This is the final release for the highly anticipated game, so its a timely way to finalize the developer’s posts.

Check out the final post below – have you enjoyed the series? Let us know which was your favorite post!

Pic of the day has continued since E3 2013, and I would like to bring this series to a close today.

A total of 384 posts and roughly 500 screenshots have been posted, and there’s even more screenshots if you count the ones I’ve posted for different regions.

The origins of pic of the day was sharing one picture a day of the game in development inside the company. It started out just as a small bonus for the staff.

However, once we started sharing pictures with the public, it was a much tougher process. We had to be more careful to choose appropriate pictures to post while keeping a consistant schedule regardless of how busy we got, all while some people only wanted new information from my posts.

It’s nice to finally be able to get one weight off of my shoulders. But, we promised to create Mewtwo as a playable character, so I can’t relax too much yet. I hope you’ll look forward to Mewtwo joining the battle!.
