Nintendo 64 20th Anniversary Tribute: Super Smash Bros.
Super Smash Bros. was one of the last great IP’s that were released on the Nintendo 64 and enjoys a giant success till today. Super Smash Bros. was first released on the 21st January 1999 and developed by Nintendo’s close affiliate HAL Laboratory that were mostly known for their Kirby games before.
Smash Bros. is a fighting game for up to four players at the same time but unlike almost all fighting games out there, the goal was not to beat the opponents until they are K.O but to smash them out of the arena. Unlike a majority of the fighting games out there, it also featured a ton of options to configure the rules of the levels, another difference to many other games were the items that could be obtained during the battles as well as the sometimes platform-level like structure of the background stages.

“Smash Bros is a culmination of what makes Nintendo nostalgic to me. My first memories of video games were the moments I’d fight ladder from a level 1 CPU to a level 9 CPU in Smash. If I hadn’t played Smash, i wouldn’t have been introduced to Kirby, Zelda, and Metroid.
Drawing all the characters from Super Smash Bros was fun and brought me back to the simpler days. I hope everybody enjoys seeing their favorite characters in this Nintendo 64 Anniversary tribute.”
