For Smash Bros. fans, one of their favorite past times is speculating which Nintendo characters will be put into the game next. Platinum Games designer Hideki Kamiya is sick of it and specifically from hearing from those fans. After being pummeled for months with suggestions such as Bayonetta, Viewtiful Joe, and Ameratsu for the next Smash Bros., Kamiya tweeted this: Enough of smash idiots. Fuck off. twilog.org/PG_kamiya/sear… RT @cruz9488: Bayonetta in Smash Bros 4? — 神谷英樹 Hideki Kamiya (@PG_kamiya) June 6, 2013 Of course, if you follow the link included in that tweet, you see the ridiculous amount of spam he gets every day from fans wanting Platinum Games characters in Smash Bros. I can’t say I wouldn’t have the same reaction. Kamiya is expected to show off Bayonetta 2 next week at E3. local_offer hideki kamiya Nintendo platinum games Super Smash Bros wii u stars Further Reading Why Nintendo discontinued the NES Classic Nintendo will not have an E3 press conference Nintendo profits are up 520% Breath of the Wild sells 3.8 million units Is Nintendo shafting Axiom Verge because of Dan Adelman? Nintendo doesn't need 3rd parties, says Stardock CEO Zorpix I actually unfollowed him for that. I understand he’s annoyed and upset, but telling fans to “fuck off” isn’t really an example of someone I want to be associated with. LopsidedPasta I’m having flashbacks to Mr.#Dealwithit. You know what happened to Orth? FIRED Zorpix eh… i dunno about FIRED. he talks to his fans like this all the time… just a bit odd I guess LopsidedPasta Orth WAS fired. And I’d be surprised and disappointed if the douche who mocked me (albeit, in an infantile way) and so many others got to continue prancing amongst his millions unscathed. Zorpix I know orth was. i’m saying i dont think kamiya will be. sad but true :/ LopsidedPasta We’ll see Ashley King Why does a guy deserve to get fired for voicing his opinion? Adam Orth was condescending and hurt the brand he worked for. Kamiya is just sick of hearing from people constantly bombarding him about a game he’s not even working on. MTGSWE I don’t know. A person is showing anger and is fed up with spam about a game he’s not involved with. Zorpix for the record, i wasnt saying he should be fired >.> Sad but true was more about devs being able to be dicks to fans and still receive praise Ashley King Right, I was more replying to LopsidedPasta who seems to think this tweet will land Kamiya in some sort of trouble. It won’t. The guy is a notorious troll when it comes to things like this. RockGod Not only will he not get fired, he probably won’t even get any grief at all. People can have their own opinions about this, but no one can deny this has given him and his projects some huge exposure. Took care of pointless Smash questions and drawing more attention to HIS games… it’s a win-win, I can’t see his superiors having a problem with that. LopsidedPasta There is a difference, but Kamiya is still being just as imbecilic. Speaking from personal experience, the last time I heard a “Your Mom” joke was in 5th grade. Until today. From him. That kind of immaturity coupled with flat out rudeness “Fuck all you guys, blah blah blah” is worthy of being fired for, in MY opinion. Rey Hardy I wouldnt hire anyone to be a dev who doesnt speak his mind. Freedom of speech. Would I rather have a dev who makes decent games but is really friendly and polite or a guy who makes mind blowing games that really make people say WOW THATS NEW but can be a total ass and bitches all the time? Yah Im going with him. Maybe cause Im abit of an ass myself but “nice” is overated. “Nice guys finish last.” LopsidedPasta Speaking your mind: Stop giving me suggestions Speaking your mind: Fuck off Which one would you prefer to get? Rey Hardy To me both of those make the same statement. I get bitched at daily. The word fuck used to be a harsh word, nowadays its lost 50% of its rudeness. Everyone says fuck nowadays. 3rd graders, teachers, police, everyone. I dont give a shit one way or another. Words are just letters. If you let a word like fuck get to you then you simply have a weak will power and deserve to feel anger towards it. But strong willed people will continue to be like ok he told me to fuck off..so either I will fuck off or I will annoy him somemore. All life is, is choices he chose to say fuck off, you can chose to either support that or not, there is no right or wrong about it. LopsidedPasta Words are just letters? so saying “Hail Hitler” in Germany isn’t offensive? Making death threats to the president won’t get you thrown in jail? Words have MEANINGS. That’s why me and you can communicate right now. Ashley King Godwin’s law. You just did it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godwin's_law LopsidedPasta Ok, I have to disagree. I wasn’t comparing anyone/thing to Hitler, I was using Nazi Germany as an example. If using a readily available example means I lost an argument, than I lost. Give me a break. The concept of Nazis instantly ending an argument is bogus, and I hope you know it. Sarah Words do have meanings, but you have to learn to pick your battles. Ever heard of making mountains out of molehills? You’re doing it right now. Bob Charlie “Not hurting his company.” I’m getting Bayonetta 2 used now. I’ve waited (still waiting) long enough for games on the U, I don’t mind waiting a bit longer for B2 so this guy doesn’t see a penny of my money. Andreas Sunde Really? Seriously? Just because he said “fuck off” to people who keep bugging him about something he has repetedly told them to stop bugging him about? Some people are way too fucking sensitive… Bob Charlie If you read his posts he didn’t just say “fuck off.” He’s going out of his way to insult people. The MS #dealwithit guy got fired for much less, not saying this guy should get canned, but people in the public eye need to think a bit before they post stuff. He’s not the first guy to receive spam tweets however frustrating it may be. SmarterThanYou Freedom of speech has been dead ever since Obama has been President. And this guy has never created a decent game, so I have no idea what you’re talking about with the whole, him making mind blowing games, crap. The guy just makes garbage for stupid people. RockGod So you’re saying YOU were one of the people asking him questions about Smash? Awesome, I get to ask one of you this after all… Why are you asking a man questions about a topic when EVERYONE knows he can’t answer them? Nintendo has NDAs with anyone who knows those answers, So why waste the time to ask even??? LopsidedPasta I didn’t ask him a question. My exact words were “what a douche. UNFOLLOWING”. Being the philosopher that he is, he replied “Fuck off and follow your mom”. It was then that I realized that I was in the presence of a god. RockGod Ok that’s a fair argument then. I mean your situation, not the people who keep asking stuff that nobody can answer tho… wimpykid456 Have you read any of those Adam Orth internet memes? There pretty good. Johny yea that was alittle TOO straightforward ._. some heavy wording he used to adress the fans there… MTGSWE I think he had enough off the constant asking about Smash. If the nice word won’t work, then you take out the heavy stuff. 😛 He could have worded it better, but come on. Even professionals has their days 🙂 Johny yeah … its gotta be pretty annoying >.> … even im so frustrated of CONSTANT unlimited spam of people talking and requesting their favourite characters for smash EVERYWHERE MTGSWE Just look at his twitter. The smash request is silly. His whole twitter is full of questions about smash, a game he has nothing to do with. Johny Yeah… exactly.. but when you look at it, .. bayonetta has a HUUGE role and significance for wii u, and obviously alot of people would love to see her in smash or expect her in it, since its because Nintendo that Bayonetta 2 will even exist, etc MTGSWE Yeah. I know, but I think he would rather hear about Bayonetta 2 than Smash. It can be great to an extent. After a while though it just get tidious. Johny of course ! some recognition is nice from that part. but being asked about their role in some completely unrelated game OVER AND OVER is obviously frustrating and … as you said.. tidious MTGSWE I upvoted as a thanks for a good discussion 😀 Johny Its been my pleasure 😀 same here Daniel Gonzalez I think you mean tedious. Yoshi5081 You are right! They said “Fuck off’ to you because u know wat is to hear crap 24/7 from ppl like you gamesplayswill Dude, he is HUMAN, if you got all that spam I bet you’d kick a baby in the mouth and vomit! Zorpix I dont think I’d ever do either of those things… To be honest, if it was me, I’d have two twitters. A business and a personal. Stuff like this would go on my personal gamesplayswill Meh, I’d just keep it in one, but I do get he should of said anything but “foul language.” And kicking babies will keep you strong while vomiting will keep you skinny, remember that now. No I’m not insane, why’d you ask? Wayne Beck Unfortunately, the Video Game industry is so intertwined with the Social Network that you can’t have two separate ones. People will find you and they will bombard you. Bob Wilkerson We are not faulting him for being human. If it bothered him that much then let people know politely and disable your twitter account or other methods people contact you until the game is released. I’m sorry but he is in a position that deals with a product happens to have a lot of fans all around the world. If you are going to put yourself out there on the interwebs and social networks you have to know how to deal with that professionally. This is the same stuff that other people that represent companies like EA or a certain game analyst blogger say that gets us gamers upset. He could have said something like “Enough with the Smash requests… Back off!. Thanks” MTGSWE Watched his twitter. Nowhere did they ask about things important to him like bayonetta 2 or wonderful 101. It was just Smash,smash,smash. A game he has nothing to do with. Zorpix it was about if bayonetta would be in smash. and they talk about 101 a lot too… MTGSWE Latest 15-20 tweets was only SMASH! Last month I saw almost only SMASH. Accept that he is sick of it. I’m not even a fan of his! Zorpix I’m not saying he’s not sick of it… I’m just saying he has become more and more crabby recently, and it’s ticking me off, because I followed him because he seemed like a nice and fun-loving game developer. Now he’s snapping at people every other tweet MTGSWE I can understand that, but don’t act like the fans have not been a part of his reaction. He could have worded it better, but if people don’t listen then he has every right to be pissed. Nice to have an argument with you man 🙂 Zorpix eh. for me arguments require anger. this was a discussion 🙂 and a nice one. But yeah, his fans are really stupid at times. he tells them over and over again, search his tweets before asking a question. They dont listen. At the same time, he could have said something else less offensive/violent. MTGSWE Nice having this discussion the and no hard feelings 😀 I agree he could have worded it alot better. I’m sure he will calm down sonner or later 🙂 I will now go back to my F-zero X 😀 Zorpix have fun with that game. It’s fun, and my favorite F zero 😀 RockGod OK, why would anyone ask him about Smash? If he knows anything about it and he leaked that info, Nintendo would sue him out of existence. Nobody but Nintendo is allowed to announce new info for Smash Bros. So there it is, he can’t talk about Smash. Nobody can. Why bother asking him in this situation? Zorpix I’m not saying the people asking aren’t mindless sheep. They seem and act like it. But still. It’sunprofessional RockGod I can definitely see your point Bob, but I don’t think we as fans should be so enraged over this that we call for his termination or say we will boycott Bayonetta 2 like some have suggested. Besides I think he was trying to be funny and it just wasn’t, that’s all… Bob Wilkerson Yes calling for him to be fired is extreme… I have not read everyone’s posts but many were just citing how people have been fired from their jobs for posting similar things on twitter. Maybe he was trying to be funny but sarcastic humor is almost always lost on the internet in the form of text especially when you are responding to people that do not know you personally. If he was upset with some people repeatedly tweeting him then why didn’t he just block them. I assume you can do that on twitter as I do not use the site. In this day an age you have to restrain yourself from what you post on the internet especially when it is an attack like this on other people. Humor or not this is easily assumed to be hostile. RockGod I don’t bother with Twitter myself Bob so i’m not sure either. From what I’ve heard he is a notorious prankster and known for what we would probably call trolling just for laughs (kinda like knowledgeiswhatsup I guess) You’re right sometimes their not funny… Beat Yeah really, be professional on a twitter, even if you are being spammed. Show a little class. Rey Hardy Since when is Twitter “Professional” Its people saying what they ate for breakfast or announcing they walked there dog. Twitter is just a bunch of random news from individuals. When I become a dev I will swear if I feel like it, some people have the balls to speak their mind some dont. I would make video, post it on youtube where My dev team and I say “Fuck you Microsoft and Sony, we have no intention of ever putting our games on your systems so dont even contact us or we will report that as harrasment now fuck off.” Beat Yeah but you really shouldn’t just tell your followers to fuck off. I mean, it’s just not nice. Rey Hardy Wow cause someone tells you to fuck off you let that get to you? Its just letters that spell out words. Zorpix I dont like following people who are that unprofessional Scott Rougeau Wow thats soft. It’s his own personal account, he can use what ever language he wants. it’s not like people are gonna be all like, “Oh you’re following a guy that said fuck, you must be a bad person.” Zorpix I dont care about the word fuck. I care that he was such an ass to his fans 210stuna Tell me when you re-follow him again 🙂 GoldDreams Just for using that kind of language, directed at fans of the series, Nintendo should pull him from the project. I’d rather have another two year delay. Due to them swapping development teams, than to buy a game from such a jerk. If you didn’t want the harassment of fans suggestions. Then you shouldn’t be working on such a high profile game. insomniac Thats just silly. And I dont blame this guy at all. I dont care who makes my game as long as its a good game. he can be a JERK all he wants who cares really? Honestly though, fun article! Metroid33slayer he’s not involved in the smash bros developement. MTGSWE Sakurai makes Smash together with Namco. There’s no Kamiya involved! Arekou I think he means Bayonetta 2 as nintendo is the publisher.. Andreas Sunde Welcome to the internet. If you can’t handle it, well, too bad, no one really gives a fuck. RockGod What? He has nothing to do with Smash Bros. That’s why he got upset! His real projects are getting buried by dummies thinking he has any say about a different game. You’d be upset too… iceazeama fans just need to stop being so pushy like that. its true hes probably getting sick of it. the smash fans are one of the worst in the way they act, and you know it. Agent721 fans pay good money for his games and in turn, have probably made the man rich. He OWES THEM, and not the other way around. Sidney Majurie You do realize he’s not a developer for Smash Bros right. He works for Platinum Games. He would like to have tweets about the games his company actually works on like Bayonetta 2 and The Wonderful 101… Agent721 Clearly, the people tweeting about his characters own his games. Maybe next time hell be happier when those fans dont buy his games, dont become obssessed with them and stop tweeing him about it. As a business proffessional, acting like this is totally unnecessary. Its not much different than EAs employees. IMO at least. RockGod I’m sorry but I have to disagree with one thing you said. You said clearly these people own his games. You really can’t assume that, in fact there are a vast many Smash fans that play nothing but Smash almost exclusively, I don’t understand how or why but it’s true. Most likely these people simply heard a rumor and are doing anything they can to verify it, simply for the fact of verifying it. He cannot answer Smash questions even if he had knowledge of it, Smash announcements can only be made by Nintendo. Sidney Majurie Well, Bayonetta being put in SSB wouldn’t be his decison. Perhaps you can tell me what Platinum characters Nintendo fans are crazy about. I only know Bayonetta, a game that wasn’t exactly a blockbuster, even though it was good, and not on a Nintendo Platform. Why direct your countless wishes to THIS guys twitter account when it’s not his decision? It would be up to Nintendo and Sakurai… Clel Was gonna upvote your comment until I saw that last bit. iceazeama they are though. dang was going to thumbs up yours….. well got to hit the hay. yawn Clel Lol RockGod I’m about as big a Nintendo fanboy as one can be, and I have to agree! The Smash Bros. games are awesome but whenever you go to one of their fan sites it’s undeniable, they’re nuts! I can all but guarantee you that within 1 month of Super Smash Bros. U release, they will already be talking about who they think will be in the next game. Guest That’s not nice how is he talkin’.But,this will stop people asking for new characters.Really?Bayonetta on SSB?Won’t buy this game if people are going to ask for mo’ characters. insomniac REALLY?!?!? YOUR NOT GONNA BUY A GAME OF THIS CALIPER JUST BECAUSE FANS REQUEST RIDICULOUS CHARACTERS? YOU MIGHT AS WELL JUST GIVE UP ON GAMING NOW! I FOR ONE AM SUPER STOKED FOR SSB4 CUZ IM SMART ENOUGH TO KNOW THEIR NOT GONNA PUT EVERY CHARACTER REQUESTED IN IT. D.M.T Dude turn off caps lock, seems like you’re yelling…lol Andreas Sunde Downvoted for all caps. It’s extremely fucking annoying. LopsidedPasta Looks like SOMEBODY has a pretty big period. Geez, Kamiya, those are the types of comments that get people fired! LopsidedPasta He replied to me on twitter! I’m LopsidedPasta there also. This guy has no idea what he’s doing. #AdamOrth #Dealwithit Andreas Sunde Honestly, knowing Kamiya, his reply wasn’t exactly unexpected. Also, he’s been like this for a long time, and he hasn’t been fired over it yet. Agent721 Jesus christ, what a douche. Clel I can understand why he did that. However, that’s pretty unprofessional and downright stupid on his part. It’s also kinda hurtful, especially to some people. iceazeama its very understandable, some people actually agree with him to, hes getting spammed to death and the main smash bros fan base is considered one of the worse ronin4life This doesn’t really seem out of characer though for some reason… MTGSWE Thing is: if he has told fans time and time again that there will be no platinum characters in Smash, then he will likeley get tired of the same question he already answered several times. Everyone has their days when they are fed up with people. This is actually a normal reaction. He could word it better, but likeley he did not want to. RockGod Don’t feel hurt… he just wanted to stop the flood of Smash questions, and draw some more attention to the games he IS working on. The point is we should be just as excited for Bayonetta 2 & Wonderful 101 as we are for Smash Bros. They are all worthy games. It’d be a shame if a bunch of great games are overlooked because of rabid fans of another. incoherent1 That’s what social media is there for — so people can interact with you (and get excited about your products…). And it’s not like they were derrogatory or harassing him — people are just excited about his creation… Most developers would KILL for that kind of enthusiasm, so if he doesn’t like it just sign off Twitter and/or tell people politely that you can’t hangle the influx of tweets and to please dial it down, but thanks for being so enthusiastic…. Sidney Majurie You do realize he’s not a developer for Smash Bros right? He works for Platinum Games. He would like to hear enthusiasm about the games his company actually works on like Bayonetta 2 and The Wonderful 101… incoherent1 Understood, but having someone say “OMG I’d love for your character to be in SSB” is essentially saying “I’m a potential customer and am very excited about your work” — they wouldn’t be expressing interest in having Bayonetta in SSB if they weren’t also very interested in buying Bayonetta 2. Andreas Sunde He tried telling them politely; didn’t work. Sometimes you gotta be harsh for a message to sink in. RockGod The thing is Smash Bros. isn’t his product. His actual products Wonderful 101 & Bayonetta 2 were being drowned out by Smash questions, and truth is, even if he knew anything about Smash, Nintendo would never let him tell. They would reveal it themselves as they always have/will. Which adds another layer of annoyance to him, “Why do they keep asking ME when they know I can’t answer them?” I plan to get all the mentioned games and more, but it’s sad to see those 2 dwelling in a Smash shadow. I hope a lot of games can pull more attention after E3 like Bayo 2, W101, X, Watch Dogs and more. To me 1st party Nintendo releases are a no-brainer, their always good and if your interested then you’ll probably enjoy your purchase. The lesser known games are the ones that NEED attention to succeed. discuss How immature. Nintedward What an ahole he’s being! I actually don’t want any of his characters in Smash bros. I do a bit , but Wonderfull 101 and Bayo 2 need to prove themselves before they’re good enough to be in Smash bros. So really he is the one who needs to ”fuck off” and make 2 good games 😛 iceazeama thumbed up you, your welcome!!!!!! Nintedward There’s one back for you 🙂 iceazeama THANKS…. people on mynintendonews hahahahah, man so stupid some times. Clel You’re funny. I like you. iceazeama you seem pretty cool too, yoshi is my favorite nintendo character and i think the very first character i played in a videogame!!!!! that thumbs up was by me or was it…….. (whistles) ( side steps away slowly)….. (staring behind a bush to see your reaction) iceazeama im now a bee on there and people are getting so pissed hahahahahah!!!!!!! Thatswhatisaid Heres a dumass! guess what M character in a T/E10 Game is stupid do you want kids to see a naked girl running around in SSB4!?!?!?!? I mean anybody who thinks a M character can be in SSB4 is a retard. Baum 「ツリー」 *cough* Snake in Brawl *cough* And it’s not like Bayonetta’s jumping naked around through the games… Even the Great Fairies in Twilight Princess were wearing less than Bayonetta (I do think they even were completely naked), but it still got the same rating as Brawl (USK/PEGI 12) RockGod WOW! Kinda ironic that your name is That’s What I Said. Cause I have no clue What U Just Said. RockGod It was pretty blunt… but those 2 titles are a big deal for us, and he was probably anticipating the excitement we’d have for them. Instead he gets flooded with Smash Bros questions. Truth is even if he knew something, he still couldn’t tell us. NDA. We need to spread the word that The Wonderful 101, Bayonetta 2, and Super Smash Bros. U are all worthy of our excitement. We can’t allow gems like these to be swept under the rug. Sidney Majurie Nintendo fans can get annoying. I know. I’m one of them 😀 iceazeama thumbed up you , just so you know!!!!!! Sidney Majurie you’ll probably be the only one 🙂 iceazeama no no, look look there is more!!!!!! howling_wolf1334:[ Nop, you get a lot of thumb ups… ronin4life Hell yeah. I am too. But I am also a born overly analytical conspiracy theorist… So that can be like x3 the annoying. ^,^ Bob Wilkerson I prefer the term passionate over annoying when it comes to being a Nintendo fan MTGSWE Clearly Kamiya thought it was annoying 😛 Bob Wilkerson and if I were him I would feel the same way but I would not publicly tell them to fuck off. I manage a decently large network and support thousands of users so I know how it is to have people contact you all day with their needs and problems. They think they are the only one that you are there to serve or respond to. I just say the nasty things in my head and not out loud and never post it on the internet. MTGSWE Come on now. There’s still no reason to be angry at him. He can say wathever he like. If people can’t accept that, then it’s their choice. Gabcormier Ironically, we all s*** on the EA engineer who said “whatever he likes”. I’m a nintendo fan, but his comment was a bit too much. (Kamiya) Wayne Beck There is a big difference between Unapologetically bashing something Millions of people love(EA) and telling your fans they are being Obnoxious(Kamiya). Gabcormier To me, it’s not about what he said; it’s about “how” he said it. You dont say “fuck off” to people who ask questions, as annoying as they can be. I greatly condemned EA comment too. You may say whatever you like, but at least say it a politicaly(sorry for my english) correct way. You can’t just throw swears and insults in a comment, especially when you’re associated to something big RockGod It makes no sense that people are asking him these things in the first place. If he knew anything he couldn’t tell them, Nintendo is very strict about their NDAs SmarterThanYou You’re implying that Kamiya can think. Wayne Beck LOL, Only we Nintendo Fans can get that kind of Message from a Dev and think to themselves.. Yeah, we’re kind of annoying. LOL Sidney Majurie Yep, thats why we are the best fans. We’re passionate, but we have humility as well 🙂 Jeffery02 Poor guy. One of the cases where I would rather be the giver than the receiver. Maybe he was too harsh, but sometimes we need a slap back into reality and humility. lukas me to Tecpedz94 Yes but there are ways of saying things and thats not the right way. He should of addressed it in a mature and appropriate manner without unnecessary wordings. People are more likely to respect another when they states things in a proper way. Now immature idiots are going to bust his ass even more now just to play with his buttons…. Sidney Majurie My guess is that he did, but the inquiries would not stop, so he kind of boiled over. Not saying he was right, but I understand… Guest Holy crap! He replied to me on twitter!!! AZHood Kamiya gets tweeted constantly, and doesn’t like repeating the same questions that gets asked numerous times. I don’t blame him for his reaction. TheyCallMeDan It really kinda explains why he said it. I can’t blame him either. Mr. Nick Haha, for some reason I found that funny. TheyCallMeDan I can understand why this happened since people enjoy pestering him for a new games that he doesn’t have the rights to anymore. He’s obviously bored of the same questions being thrown at him. However, he shouldn’t of said what he said in such a manner. Especially calling fans of SSB “idiots”. RockGod I don’t think he was saying SSB fans are idiots, just the people who keep asking him about the game. Non-Disclosure Agreement means if he knows anything about the game… then he’s not allowed to say anything about it. Nintendo is known for being the best at keeping their secrets, and for good reason seeing as how they are ripped off more than the other 2 combined. Anonymous Lol look at his other tweets… Baum 「ツリー」 You really can’t blame him for that…I mean people are spamming about SSB, although he doesn’t even work on the game!! RedChu I honestly don’t care. He’s annoyed with people asking him the same things about Smash Bros., so what better way to get them to stop than telling them bluntly? A simple “Please stop asking me these questions” wouldn’t have caused people to stop asking him the questions as much as how he went about doing it, because now everyone’s going to rage, unfollow him, and deem him scum because of it, so no more questions about Smash Bros.! Honestly, he shouldn’t have went about it that way as a professional, but he is a human being; human beings get frustrated/annoyed/angry all the time and say things they’ll probably regret later. He just wants people to quit asking him the same questions over and over, so I understand his reaction and do not fault him for it. RockGod It’s gotta be a little disappointing for this guy to see this huge flood over Smash Bros. when he was probably expecting to converse about games like The Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2, you know, projects he actually has something to do with. Honestly I could see why he was frustrated over this. These are two amazing looking games that should be just as anticipated by us as Smash Bros. D.M.T You can’t just tell your fans to fuck off and call them idiots. Just no… Listen i know a lot of people are annoying but you’re supposed to be professional to your fans 24/7. Baum 「ツリー」 Did you read the other tweets (is that their name!? I don’t know anything about twitter 😀 )? He seems to be really pissed, because of all the people spamming him with SSB questions :/ D.M.T Listen i understand but i dont agree with his reaction. Some people aren’t annoying on purpose and he will hurt their feelings with his tweet insomniac Its that exact treatment that kids (and adults too) are such soft pussys nowadays…. i mean sure he didnt have to use the language he did but oh well…… people handle shit differently. dont know this guy. im not a fan of his. but i am a fan of this game that he happens to be working on. i support him……tell them annoying little kids and ignorant others exactly what you think……how to people learn if you dont tell them to quit? Arekou “Its that exact treatment that kids (and adults too) are such soft pussys nowadays” your typical douchebag in a nutshell.. metaxzero It is his Twitter. He can respond to folks however he pleases. People should grow thicker skin anyway. D.M.T Yes it’s his Twitter but he wants people to buy his games right? I wouldn’t buy a game if some developer talked to me like that. It’s not about growing thicker skin, I just don’t have to tolerate someone using that kind of language with me, especially if I wasn’t being annoying on purpose. metaxzero Of course he wants people to buy his games. But NO game is going to fail because he hurt some person’s feelings on freaking Twitter. The masses that determine whether a game sells enough aren’t the ones paying attention to him. Those masses probably don’t know who he even is, let alone follow him on Twitter. He can break some eggs and live. Especially to let off some steam. Arekou “But NO game is going to fail because he hurt some person’s feelings on freaking Twitter” NT lost as lot of potential DmC costumers because of his constant insults on twitter… metaxzero You say alot (typo forgiven), but you can’t bring me numbers (which I doubt would be enough to make that game a success or failure). Heck, you can’t even prove the folks mad on Twitter didn’t go buy the game anyway. Mr. J Hmmmmm well that was unexpected. Thatswhatisaid I agree with him ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS I MEAN BAYONNETA IS A M character HELL no shes not getting in SBB4 some dumasses are asking for kratos from GOD I mean fucking serious how fucking stupid is that!!!!! Nintendo fans can be intellegent or dumasses Same with sony and microsoft fans it goes 2 ways fucking idoitic dumasses or intellegent human beings WHICH ARE YOU! LopsidedPasta Bayoneta 2 is a Wii U exclusive Thatswhatisaid I ment GOW. 😛 metaxzero Uh you do know that SOLID SNAKE a character from the M rated Metal Gear Solid series was in Brawl right? I can barely understand what you said beyond that. RockGod Kratos? Oh great next we’ll be seeing Master Chief in Smash Bros. /sarcasm Agent721 If an EA employee told Nintendo fans to fuck off, how would you react? Sonic the Hedgehog Really, EA? Nintendo fans, as far as I know, don’t even care… metaxzero Why would Nintendo fans harass an EA employee about Smash suggestions? RockGod LOL! I see what you did there! Nice! Let’s see anyone disagree with you now… Monomon Did he accept any of the ideas? RockGod He’s currently accepting all ideas…. straight to his spam folder… lol Johny Well im sick of all COUNTLESS spam suggestions for Super smash bros 4 …. i mean.. Pac man and other bullshit spam ?? seriously? ugh… im just so tired of everything related smash characters… and we haven’t even gotten any info on it -.- RockGod I owned all previous Smash games and will buy the next one when it comes out, but I don’t think i’ll ever understand this phenomena of Smash predictions before every new release. There really is a whole LOT of people that just constantly wanna talk about who will be in the next one. I don’t get it, I just wait for a reveal, then a release date. Agent721 And if he doesnt want or cant accept what twitter IS ALL ABOUT, then hes the one who needs to fuck off. How do all the other twitter users, many who are way morr well known, do it?? No matter how you dice it or justify it, its totally unprofessional. metaxzero I don’t think his Twitter was made for him to be professional. Virus6 If you can’t handle those questions, don’t have a public account. People can be stupid and running off your mouth won’t stop it. Every person who is in his shoes gets the exact same comments. ancientgamer i dont blame the guy, its the whole are we there yet, are we there yet? scenario, leave the man alone n let him work Metroid33slayer LOL his response is legendary. I think everybody would lose their temper if they were constantly pestered. MTGSWE I agree. I found this tweet kinda funny even. 😛 insomniac i 100% agree with you, people act as if he directing that at them personally Agent721 Nope, much like the rest of twitter, he could simply ignore them. If I sold a product, I would be delighted that my fans were so into my game they wantd to see then in other games. I dont care if I got 10 million tweets, as it would signal success. Ive never heard of this dude before, but his reaction makes me much less likely to buy The Wonderful 101 and I truly hope he gets his wish and that his characters are omited from the next SSB. Metroid33slayer He is a human not a robot and like all humans he can lose his cool. All he did was tell someone to f**k off, it is no big deal. Bob Wilkerson Seems to me there was a better way to say this. I can understand his frustration but no need to tell fans to eff off. palomino blue His English is a little rough anyway. It might be easier for him to drop an F-bomb and not really feel its impact. insomniac i hear Gordon Ramsay tell people to FUCK OFF everyday on netflix with his hate comments? MTGSWE I like Gordons Ramsay. He’s awesome 😀 insomniac i know right? im just saying WE americans are too damn soft Nintendo4life Dang! Oh well im still getting smash bros anyways CapnCrumbles436 I am confused what does this designer from platinum games have to do with Smash bros, a game being developed by Nintendo’s Sakuri and Namco? MTGSWE Nothing. People just spam him to include his characters in a game he has nothing to do with. That’s why he’s pissed about it. RockGod Thank You! I was beginning to think I was the only one here that fully understood the situation. MTGSWE You are not alone man 🙂 Many people are agreeing with him and you 🙂 Ernie Sanguyo He’s being honest how he feels. I would be mad too if people spamming. Kairyu It’s not spamming. It’s passionate fans telling you that they really want something and will pay you money in return. It’s not spamming if it means something very important to game designers and how much money they can potentially make if they work WITH the fans. Not saying that Bayonetta should be in the game, but I’m speaking generally about any game designer receiving “spam” from fans. Sylux There is actually a very simple solution to prevent the spammers plain and simple don’t join the majority by creating a Twitter account, you won’t get spammed then. Personally I LOATHE twitter I don’t want to have anything to do with it. The way he responded seriously is a no go. But honestly I can’t blame him either twitter is by far the most annoying form of social media. Spam at it’s best. But that’s just my opinion. I mean it though that I can’t blame him, but I do agree he could have said it more subtle. Lusunup I also get sick of what people suggest in the new smash bros roster some are so ridiculous that it ticks me off! like for instances having ridley as a playable character,how on earth???? would he be a playable character ??? just think before you put out stupid ideas. Leorio Lol the idiot just lost himself some sales for that statement. Fans are fans because they have a reason to like the product and/or people behind it.. tell me that? I’m not your fan anymore. lol There are ways to say SLOW DOWN or STOP PLEASE.. without going that far. MTGSWE Wow. One sentence get you to stop being a fan. That’s just silly :/ metaxzero You really think he lost a noticeable amount of fans for his games? Most of the sales are NOT coming from weak skinned folks looking at his Twitter Andreas Sunde Do you have any idea how many times he’s already said that? It didn’t work. Sometimes you got to be a bit harsh. Ohsnap123 I agree that it was a little excessive, but if he’s getting HARASSED by the fans, then I can understand why he’s irritated Adrian If Goku is in this game, I’m buying it at launch. Sonic the Hedgehog Goku? Are you kidding me? Me, Mario and Link don’t even stand a chance together. Might as well take 7 Chaos Emeralds along with me… Adrian Haha, well they were able to add Ganondorf, who is a pretty big power house (pretty much god status in LTTP and OOT). Lusunup Wasn’t the whole point of smash bros to unite all nintendo mascots and make them fight? sure if goku was appearing in the game I would buy it. Im still going to get it a launch because of mario, link, kirby, fox, and samus. Adrian I probably won’t get it if no Goku. I don’t have anybody to play it with really. Unless I invited over my nieces and nephews, who I would own beyond belief. Guhtere I’m buying it at launch no matter what. Ohsnap123 They’d have to do Kid Goku. If they put Adult Goku in there, then the game disc itself would explode Adrian Haha, good call man. But what if they put GT Kid Goku? :-p Malik Gilbert Get over it he got tired of being bothers by fans about he same thing over and over should have left him alone he doesn’t care if you stopped following him …. Sonic the Hedgehog That’s rough. I know I’m a SEGA kinda hedgehog, but I’m pretty sure Nintendo people don’t even dare say that word. ancientgamer do you like being harassed while working? imagine 100,000 ppl harassing you every minute of every day at work. it gets damn annoying with one to a couple ppl doing it. maybe if ppl didn’t cry like spoiled little bitches he wouldn’t feel the need to lash out. i dont blame him one bit n probably would of done the same myself Th3PANO who wouldn’t have enough? people are selfish and annoying when they are on the internet. Silent Seriously, this guy is right. some people make the stupidiest suggestions ever. Geno? Never, Babies? Are you kidding me? Rosalina? LOL Ony Wait wait I have one: Reggie, Iwata and Miyamoto in Smash Bros o/ FUCK YEAH *explosions everywhere* Super Buu Some people are just outright crazy with their suggestions. It’s always like that with every Smash Bros. $41809923 bayonetta has be confirm and thats not all to i heard that x and y mewtwo has be comfirm to RockGod Not one video or screenshot has been revealed yet. So how can you “confirm” anything? Mochlum When an EA worker calls Wii U “crap”: “How unprofessional, he should resign! What an idiot.” When a Platinum Games worker tells fans to “Fuck off”: “Pfft, he was just doing what any other person would do.” …bias much? Isaac Serious Lol, so true! Andreas Sunde There is a difference between personally being annoyed at fans who bug you all the fucking time about a subject you’ve told them to stop bugging you about, and speaking on behalf of your company, calling a system “crap”. RockGod Yeah, those situations are exactly the same. /sarcasm Mochlum Both involve a company worker being rude and unprofessional. Jamal Brown lol his tweet is funny ChariotMan7 Word Lmao! Kairyu Sorry but that’s a bit unprofessional of him. Seeing passionate (not annoying) fans is a GOOD thing. If a character has a lot of fan support, do you know how many people will purchase the game just because a specific character is in it? Especially in a game like Smash Bros, that’s just how it works. He should be realizing how much people love Bayonetta. Don’t care how much spam I get, I would love to know that this many people love something I created. It’s not annoying, at least not to me. metaxzero You’re not him being bombarded for months on end. Not everyone would love this repetitive attention. Especially over something he doesn’t 100% have control over. Kairyu Do you know how many famous and successful people go through this? He’s one of the few that approach their fans like this about something they are passionate for. You know, the people that GOT him where he is?! If it bothered him so much, why didn’t he take the time to say, “I have no control of that,” versus, “Smash idiots, fuck off”? Talk about respect for your fans. Whatever anger or feelings he had, he directed it at the wrong people. We did nothing to him BUT buy their games. Andreas Sunde He already said that. Over and over again. Didn’t work. Kairyu It’s called ignoring it. What professional game developer would tell their fans “Fuck off”?? For what reason exactly if they are the ones who give you the money you earn to pay off bills/expenses? It just doesn’t seem smart at all, and it seems very unprofessional and even immature, really. All this did was make him look bad. And, being that the internet is the internet, this will just cause people to troll him from now on. Who really won out of this?…no one, and no one could. Just ignore the fans. Simple as that. metaxzero I have a feeling you can’t really give numbers of how many famous and successful folks lash out at obnoxious fans vs. those who don’t. Though I don’t get the point of you stating it. Some folks don’t want to hide their feelings behind some PR BS. Especially on something like Twitter. And it isn’t like he was lashed out unprovoked. Getting spammed by obnoxious people isn’t exactly “doing nothing wrong”. Now you may say you and a bunch of other folks weren’t doing the spamming. Well, don’t group yourselves with the Smash idiots that were. RockGod He has zero say in Smash Bros. and he was probably upset that the real fans of his projects Wonderful 101 & Bayonetta 2 were being almost completely drowned out by legions of Smash questions, that he really CAN’T answer. I could see why he was upset, they have specific groups and sites entirely devoted to Smash Bros. People should just find a place like that and speculate all they want, not annoy people that legally can’t answer your questions. Yahya Guzman Diaz Bring ZERO from megaman! XD Petri Very professional… metaxzero He’s never been professional with his Twitter. Elem187 I agree with Kamiya….. then again I personally don’t see whats so great about Smash bros… I played all of them, even the N64 game, and I just do not find it fun for the life of me. i grew up with Nintendo characters, but I just don’t see the appeal of having Link fighting Mario. metaxzero I understand not liking the games, but how do you NOT see the appeal of 2 big name and beloved characters coming to blows? Let alone, Smash’s massive roster which has given alot more match-ups than Link and Mario (like Mario and Sonic). Super Buu The ”fuck off” is a bit excessive but fans should REALLY stop being so annoying because it’s not going to change much if you annoy people to the point that they don’t want to do what you ask them. $41809923 you people may not want her in the game but she has been confirm from sega i no that she is in the game and 2 sonic characters Super Buu Actually, I want her. I’m just saying people should not be so annoying in an attempt at getting here in the game. RockGod It could be cool to have her in the game, yes. People should stop asking him because he can not answer any of their questions even if he did know the answer. You really think they would let anyone say anything about Smash Bros. without it being announced directly by Nintendo themselves? Anyone with any inside knowledge has probably had to sign multiple NDAs with Nintendo… So really it’s pointless to ask anyone anything. Just make a guess and wait for the reveal, No one else is gonna find out any sooner. Andreas Sunde Source for that claim? $41809923 at http://www.tssznews.com/2013/5/20 RockGod Well I know that you don’t know much… $41809923 we just have to wait and see then but i all ready no she in the game and that that ok i be playing the new mewtwo from x and y it looks very good in moves RockGod fan-made movies and speculation do not equal confirmation. Nintendo has made no reveal yet to confirm anything by, so technically speaking not even Mario and Link have been officially confirmed yet. eli i am happy they aren’t going into smash bros HAS ANYONE EVER HEARD OF STAYING ORIGINAL! metaxzero What the heck are you even talking about? SmashFinale He means keeping as little third party characters in the game as possible. Squid He should honestly be more respectful about it. This probably lost him a ton of respect. Kenshin0011 Haha, I lol’d at that tweet. People shouldn’t be so sensitive Jack5221 I get he’s annoyed, but theres no reason to lash out like that. Very unprofessional. howling_wolf1334:[ There is a lot of more people thumb up to you!!! Hell yeah!! howling_wolf1334:[ Ops, I post it incorrectly, :), this comment was for Sydney Majurie… My mistake… SmashFinale Honestly. Can’t blame him for snapping. People are pretty moronic when it comes to Smash Bros. Sakurai must have a great deal of patience not to be annoyed himself. But yeah, it wasn’t for the best of him to tell someone to fuck off. People don’t like that at a professional level. Sigh…. RockGod Wow, I cannot begin to imagine how Sakurai does it, all the suggestions for characters and stages and items… I can’t even imagine the poor guy going outside, he must be so tired of hearing about it from everyone. We’re really lucky he hasn’t completely lost his mind yet. Maybe that’s it! Their all crazy at Nintendo and that’s the secret behind all their great games. Kenshin0011 Since when does a tweet have to be “professional”? Take a chill pill people. Geoffrey Tasker i can’t be the only person who nearly spit out a drink laughing at his response ChariotMan7 Iam Laughing at this Shit Too Man. Them Japanese Don’t Care Lol. GHNeko he tells people to fuck off on a regular basis. nothing new here. it’s part of his character and people who’ve known about him for a long time should know this. He gets talked to on a semi-regular basis by PT CEO lol. i also don’t blame him. freaking fanbases. “but its unprofessional!!!” yeah he could of handled it in a more “professional” way, but that wouldn’t of done much because fanbases hardly respect the people they pester until they’re told off in some way shape or form, and a majority of the time they’re told to stop, they get mad and react accordingly. it’s freaking dummbbbbbb granted, i’m talking about the vocal part of the fanbase ie the one in question. RockGod After you read all the negative comments on here then scroll up and look at the picture of him smiling, it’s just too funny. I think he wanted to tell people to stop but I also think he wanted attention, and he seems to be getting it. Rey Hardy Hahaha thats just great. So fucking hilarious. A dev telling people to fuck off cause of spam lol. This made my day. Magiphart We should be bugging Capcom. Jpro Walkom yes! let’s flood their twitter with Megaman requests, they’ve done so much with him lately. Guhtere They get annoying. Especially the ones who think that just because they put two 3rd party characters in Brawl, they should make half the roster 3rd party characters. One Sonic character is enough, we don’t need Shadow, Knuckles, Amy, Eggman, Blaze, and Silver to be in it. It’s a fighting game about NINTENDO! I also hate it when people think that a character who has only been in one or two Nintendo game in an entire franchise (like Geno, Skull Kid, etc.) should be in it. First let in the main Nintendo characters. SmashFinale One of the very few sensible comments i have ever seen directed towards Smash Bros. Thank you for stating this fact. I just wish people had more sense when it comes to this game. Michael Ngo EXACTLY! People are completely missing the point of what ssb is; an all out battle between nintendo characters PERIOD. Having 1 or 2 3rd party is a nice touch but not having half of them filled up john Well it looks like Kamiya B-) isn’t keeping it PG YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! (referring to PG_kamiya) I’m sorry. I’m terrible. DemonRoach He’s Japanese, the only new characters are those a child molester would include. H8ersBH8n Your racism is disgusting. Get the hell off this site you scum. Andreas Sunde What’s your logic here? I don’t follow… Bob Charlie Rude ass. Delete your twitter account or ignore the comments. Simple fix. #dealwithit Mario Whoa!! Watch the language Kamiya! There could be children reading this! Bob Charlie Exactly. So much for me picking up Bayonetta 2 new. Madmagican Well I probably wouldn’t enjoy being bombarded with stuff about Smash Bros either Bob Charlie It’s isolated fans asking a developer they like questions. If he doesn’t like it then he can grow up and delete his twitter account or ignore the questions. This pattern of developers and executives publicly making idiots out of themselves only hurts them, and their companies, in the long run. Andreas Sunde It’s hard to ignore questions if you get them all the fucking time. It’s even more annoying when you try telling people politely to stop asking, and they ignore your answer. Sometimes you have to be a bit harsh. Bob Charlie I understand getting annoyed with the mass amount of Smash Bros. spam. I didn’t know about this guy until this story, but obviously others knew of him and followed him as fans, I just think there is a more professional way of handling it is all. Just tell the Smash Bros spammers you’re going to block them and then do so. His attempt to avoid drama by calling his fans/followers names has created more drama in turn. How much spam do you think he’s getting now over all of this? Sora Morp This is what happens when nintendo fans let things get to their head brian murphy maybe he isnt so good with english haha so he tweeted something everyone could understand Dez Some of you give us such a bad name. I hear some people in the comments want Kamiya fired. Hell no, I’d tell you to f*** off, too if you spent all day spamming me about things I have nothing to do with. He has his own game to work on, hell, did anyone stop to think that perhaps Nintendo/Platinum Games have already discussed something Smash related? There is a point when enough is enough. Leave the man the hell alone. Everyone suddenly acts like they are offended yet they are probably among those spamming him endlessly everyday. It is not even different requests, it is the same one over and over. I’m surprised he didn’t explode before this. To be frank, he could have said a lot worse than f*** you after having to deal with that crap all day. So calm down, stop overreacting, you annoy someone enough and they are bound to be pissed. Developers are people too and they have their limits before their agitations spills over. RockGod The funny part is that even if he does know something about Smash, he wouldn’t be allowed to tell anyone. So why bother asking him? It’s kinda dumb. Adam Porter yea man tell all those gamers who love your characters to fuck off, you don’t need people who like your games, fuck them!!! kudos to you my friend Nintendofreak yeah i will tell them to fuck off also seriously leave the man focus on doing the stupid game n stop arrasing him u show them u asianese dude which name i cant pronounce guest after u receive thousands of the same msg that has nothing to do with your studio, you would probably tell them to f-0ff too. Leo How about not have a twitter at all uh? Those people bring it on themselves when they open the gates in the internet. guest so i should bug the hell out of the devs of sony’s killzone on twitter and tell them to add crash bandicoot to their game. RockGod Well one person spamming would be different than hundreds of thousands spamming this poor guy. Actually one person spamming would be hilariously pathetic.. Guest No, Mr. Kamiya, YOU can fuck off. I will not be buying the new SSB now. If I pay for your games, I’ll give you all the damn suggestions I want. Saleh Sbeiti He’s not making the game. Pikachief He’s not involved in SSB. He’s annoyed of everyone asking him to put his characters into another person’s game. RockGod This is the funniest comment I’ve read in a long time… lol that… or you’re a complete dumbass… sorry.. lol Saleh Sbeiti Douche. Nolan ArchLord I wonder if he understands the severity of the language he chose to use. guest now we should harass the devs of killzone to add crash bandicoot to their game. Daniel Gonzalez I can understand that he gets spammed like hell with thousands of tweets, but he should be more professional about it and just ignore them. Just telling them to “fuck off” isn’t going to help anyones image. Bob Summerwill should know a lot about that. Je Saist Now see… if he was using Google Plus he could have just started a thread, and then when it hit 500 posts, start another. No fuss, no muss. Clear notifications and done. Instead he uses Twitter, the social service least suited for such communication. RyuNoHadouken best. tweet. ever Chris Bingham I think he could have put a lot of people off buying Bayonetta 2 now since he has said that. If he wanted people to stop spamming him about bayonetta being in Smash then why doesn’t he just politely say “I’m sorry but I would like to say that if you could all stop spamming my email, that would be great because its put me under some stress so please, direct all your comments to the Super Smash Brothers development team and we will see, thank you” but now since he told everyone to “Fuck off” that proves to everyone that he isn’t a developer you’d like to a buy a game off of. I’m still going to buy Bayonetta 2 but if he carries on like this then I will cancel my pre-order and stop buying any game that he is apart of. Nostalgic_Chaos A game is a game, and hardcore gamers will buy a game regardless of how the developers come across. This was a one time “I’m angry and everyone is going to know about it” response. It was a one off and in no way would a tweet like that stop people from buying a game that he was a part of. In my opinion, that’s a little bit unrealistic. There are actors and actresses out there who I would probably never be interested to have dinner with ever, however, their movies and their talent are undeniable and I will still watch their films. Same with many other people. In fact, sometimes when people in the limelight become a bit more “charismatic” it actually boosts their sales and notoriety. Nostalgic_Chaos I know that a lot of people think that his tweet was very Douchey. I know how such a tweet with such language can come across to gamers, however, I totally understand his frustrations and where he was coming from. I’ve felt the same for a while. More mature gamers understand that not every single character we want can be in the new Smash Bros. That’s obvious. It’s probably only the immature “idiots” (his word not mine), most likely kids who are doing the dumb spamming. If people are suggesting characters like Goku and Naruto, Ryu from street fighter etc… Which in my honest opinion are completely bogus suggestions, then yes, of course he’s going to angry. These are things that he can do nothing about. I actually completely agree with his tweet coming to think of it LOL Steve I like speculating but I don’t go and e-mail the designers begging them to add those characters, unless the fans are specifically asked for their opinion. Yoshi5081 Thanks to ignorant like Sidney Majurie they get mad! B plz they wont do ur crap… ChariotMan7 The Funny thing is People Gotta think these Developers Been Under alot of Stress Dealing with Big Teams of People all the Time. and they have their own moods and Everything. it’s alot of Work and Commitment Trying to Figure out what to Put in the Game it’s Crazy Son. and to have Fans on your back all time probably got him on his Last nerves and couldn’t take it anymore. and just Lost it Lol.
