During its August 8 presentation, Nintendo announced it would include King K. Rool in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. For many fans who had petitioned the company for years to revive the Donkey Kong villain, this was massive news. Those fans, via the “Kremling Kampaigner” Twitter account, have now extended their thanks to the game’s creator, Masahiro Sakurai.
“On behalf of every Donkey Kong Country fan and King K. Rool supporter around the globe,” the message reads, “thank you for listening to us, and thank you for being such an amazing game director.”
