Thank you so much for actually putting Ridley in Smash, and therefore making Etika break his shelf in a fit of hype.

Happy Birthday Sakurai!

That's pretty incredible at such a young age he created Kirby and then gave us Super Smash Bros. my most favourite fighting game series, also he did an excellent job taking over the Kid Icarus series and he's the voice of King Dedede. Awesome just awesome.

Not surprised he does Kirby's in Super Star. When he does the third microphone attack(when Kirby grows a mohawk) you can hear a bit of his Dedede voice.
