Super Smash Bros. takes familiar Nintendo characters such as Mario, Kirby and Donkey Kong, and gets them to fight to the death. There are 8 fully-interactive landscapes, with one for each character, with noticeable links to their games. Controls are analogue-based, with different moves executed depending on the direction and how firmly the stick is pressed. Items like baseball bats, Bob-ombs, and healing items drop into the arenas at random, aiding any nearby characters than can make use of them. The game uses a fixed viewpoint which scrolls, although characters are rendered in 3D.

The one-player mode has 14 stages to work through. Up to 4 human players can do battle at once, with team play as well as all-against-all action. Hidden characters are thrown in for good measure, as are bonus rounds, and a battle to the end with a giant hand (you read right).

Playable characters include:


Super Smash Bros. Nintendo 64 Pikachu and Fox vs Mario Bros screen
Super Smash Bros. Nintendo 64 Kirby fighting the Yoshi team
Super Smash Bros. Nintendo 64 Star Fox sending Link flying
Super Smash Bros. Nintendo 64 3rd bonus stage - Race to the finish

Super Smash Bros. Render Unlock the Earthbound hero by finishing the game on the Normal difficulty, with only three lives and without continuing. It's quite a feat, but the plucky little guy is worth it. His Psi attacks will drive the other players mad.

This is the first time that a collection of Nintendo based characters have been brought together in one game (Mario, Samus, Link, etc.). Super Mario Kart was the first time a collection of Mario based characters was used.

Japanese Sound Differences

The Japanese version has different sound effects. For example, when attacking an opponent with punches and kicks, they sound like "thwaps". As another example, when attacking with the Beam Sword, it sounds a lot like the lightsaber from the Star Wars movies.
