I’m 110% sure that Sakurai thinks that Palutena and him are an OTP
Sakurai obviously based Pit on himself. They’ve got the same hair, the same sense of humor, and the same way they haven’t aged in 20 years. The whole game is probably just an adorable fantasy he created for himself.
Aran Ryan is a gift to the irish
Aran Ryan stuffs horseshoes into his gloves because he’s Irish and remarks that Little Mac probably stuffs cheeseburgers into his. Boxing is 50% mental, and Aran Ryan is fucking mental.
So I never knew before but Dark Pit is called Black Pit in Japanese. Or according to the SSB4 3DS version I just watched gameplay of.
This isn’t the first time I’ve seen “Black” get renamed “Dark” when translated over seas. Yu-Gi-Oh! did it too.
As I explained once, his Japanese name is actually a clever Brad Pitt reference.
