Random: Here’s a look at Masahiro Sakurai’s retro video game collection
If you’re looking for new ways to organize your retro video game collection, you might want to read on. Masahiro Sakurai, the creator of Kirby and director of the Smash Bros. series, recently shared an image on social media of his impressive library of retro games.
As you can see, it has prints stacked with cartridges like GoldenEye 007 and Batman, and there’s even an entire Super Famicom unit. Sakurai’s latest tweet has so far garnered over 50,000 likes on social media, with some followers even calling for Sakurai to launch his own retro collector’s series on YouTube.
This isn’t the first time fans have discovered Sakurai’s collection of personal games. Previously, its main setup – which is two massive TVs side by side and multiple consoles under both units – included systems from the PlayStation and Nintendo families.
Back in 2019, Sakurai mentioned in his regular Famitsu column how he had (at the time) 60 different controllers, multiple Switch consoles, and multiple PlayStation devices. He’s also added a PlayStation 5 and an Xbox Series X to his collection in recent years.
