As you likely already know, Masahiro Sakurai has a regular column in Famitsu where he talks about everything and anything related to games. In the latest one, the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director took the time to reflect on CD Projekt Red’s new game Cyberpunk 2077.
You see, he started out playing it on PC and “encountered bugs multiple times” and since then has been chipping away at it on his PlayStation 4 Pro, without any problems. So what does he think of it? According to a translation by Ryokutya2089 (via Siliconera), it’s a “dream game” – and so ambitious even he can’t imagine just how much planning and production went into it.
“Cyberpunk 2077 is a dream game. I wonder how much planning and production was needed.”
Although CD Projekt Red has been under fire since release for all the apparent bugs in the title, Sakurai still thinks it’s quite a feat just having a AAA multi-platform release.
“Having a multi-platform release for an AAA title is at a level where that’s enough for me to say that it’s wonderful.”
He’s also “deeply moved” that the company went to the extent of “sincerely” dealing with refunds.
“Dealing with refunds is something that makes even me feel deeply moved. This kind of sincerity was never heard of before.”
“I support this game from the bottom of my heart for sincerely dealing with [the refunds].”
So, there you go – in case you were wondering, Sakurai has been playing what was the most anticipated game release of 2020.
He’s not the only Japanese developer enjoying this release either. At the end of last year, Level-5’s boss also mentioned how much he loved it – speaking about how he had spent 60 hours with the game and hadn’t encountered any serious bugs.
If all this has got you wondering about the chances of CP2077 coming to the Switch, CD Projekt Red previously said it said it “might be too heavy” for the device, but would not rule it completely out after the release of The WItcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition.
