Here’s The Super Smash Bros SNES Version Your Childhood Was Missing (VIDEO)
Super Smash Bros has been one of Nintendo’s most popular franchises since the first Nintendo 64 installment arrived in 1999. As it was only a few years prior when the original SNES was in wide use, the crossover brawler could have easily played with “Super Power” if development started that much earlier. In Nintendo’s heyday of 2D games like Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Donkey Kong Country, this begs the question of what a Super Smash Bros SNES version would even look like.
The creative folks over at Nintendo Wire have created possibly the best look at what the Nintendo fighting game could have looked like in the early 90s. In a new video, the original game’s familiar roster are all sporting 16-bit era de-makeovers, with Link sporting his pink hair from A Link to the Past, Mario looking like he did in Super Mario World, and Samus’ armor looking straight out of the original Metroid. We also catch a glimpse at a retro battle between Link and Kirby taking place on a de-made version of the Final Destination stage. Check out the awesomeness below:
While we’ll never get our hands on Super Smash Bros SNES, a new version of the game is very much on the way for Nintendo Switch. Following the release of a speculative trailer earlier this year, the closely approaching E3 2018 is set to finally reveal the first gameplay for the mysterious new entry.
