Masahiro Sakurai kindly asks us all to just not pay him any mind for a bit

Development for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate concluded this year, a landmark achievement in video games, crossover and hype generation — but people are (somehow) already speculating about what’s next. Beloved Director Masahiro Sakurai doesn’t seem to have any particular idea at the moment, not committing to no more Smash games ever while also making it clear that there isn’t one in the pipeline. Heck, he doesn’t even seem sure about his general future in video game development. So, in translated direct words, he’s stated that “Doing anything else is going to take some time, so it’s probably best to forget about me for a while.”

Random: It Takes Two May Just Be Playable Solo, If You're Masahiro Sakurai

It Takes Two was undoubtedly the big story of The Game Awards last week, scooping up Best Family Game (which is an interesting take on that category, for sure) but more importantly the lucrative Game of the Year award. It's an extremely stylish, fun and cleverly designed game, but also has to be played in co-op or not at all.
