The Super Smash Bros. series is a series of fighting games where popular Nintendo characters are pitted against each other to fight, with every character using their unique abilities in battle. Mario, as well as some of his friends, are playable in all of the series’ games. The games are very popular, not only for being one of Nintendo's few fighting games, but also being a mass cross-over of many of the popular Nintendo Series. This includes Mario series, Pokémon series, The Legend of Zelda series, Metroid series, Kirby series, and many more. It also has numerous character cameos, as well as the reintroduction of many locations. It has become the quickest selling, and one of the most popular series in Nintendo history. Super Smash Bros. Melee is the best-selling game for the GameCube. Masahiro Sakurai has directed all three games, and is directing the next two games, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U.

Super Smash Bros.

Super Smash Bros. is the first installment in the Super Smash Bros. series, introduced in 1999 for the Nintendo 64. The game features eight characters from the start, with four unlockable characters, all of them created by Nintendo or one of its second-party developers.

Up to four people can play in multiplayer (Versus) mode, with the specific rules of each match being predetermined by the players. There are two different types that can be chosen: Time, where the person with the most KOs at the end of the set time wins; and stock, where each person has a set amount of lives, and when they are gone, the player is eliminated.

This game's one-player mode included one adventure mode that always followed the same series of opponents although the player could change the difficulty. Other single player modes exist such as Training and several mini-games, including "Break the Targets" and "Board the Platforms". All of these were included in the sequel, with the exception of "Board the Platforms".

There are nine playable stages in Versus mode, eight based on each of the starting characters (such as Princess Peach's Castle for Mario, Zebes for Samus, and Sector Z for Fox) and the unlockable Mushroom Kingdom, based around motifs from the original Super Mario Bros. (from which the English-language name of the Super Smash Bros. series comes), even containing original sprites and the original version of the Overworld theme from that game.

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Super Smash Bros Melee Players Ch.jpg

Super Smash Bros. Melee is the second installment in the Super Smash Bros. series, released in 2001 for the Nintendo GameCube. It had a larger budget and development team than Super Smash Bros. did and was released to much greater praise and acclaim among critics and consumers. Since its release, Super Smash Bros. Melee has sold more than 7 million copies and was the best-selling game on the GameCube. Super Smash Bros. Melee features 26 characters, of which 15 are available initially, more than doubling the number of characters in its predecessor. There are also 29 stages.

It introduced two new single-player modes alongside the Classic mode: Adventure mode, and All-Star mode. Adventure mode has platforming segments similar to the original's "Race to the Finish" mini-game, and All-Star is a fight against every playable character in the game, allows the player only one life in which damage is accumulated over each battle and a limited number of heal items in between battles.

There are also significantly more multiplayer modes and a tournament mode allowing for 64 different competitors whom can all be controlled by a human player, although only up to four players can participate at the same time. Additionally, the game features alternative battle modes, called "Special Melee", which involve some sort of alteration to the battle (e.g. all characters are giant by default, the speed is faster than normal, etc.), along with alternative ways to judge a victory, such as through collecting coins throughout the match.

In place of Super Smash Bros.'s character profiles, Super Smash Bros. Melee introduced trophies (called "figures" in the Japanese version). The 293 trophies include three different profiles for each playable character, one unlocked in each single-player mode. In addition, unlike its predecessor, Super Smash Bros. Melee contains profiles for many Nintendo characters who are either non-playable or do not appear in the game, as well as Nintendo items, stages, enemies, and elements.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

SSBB Cover.jpeg

Super Smash Bros. Brawl is the third installment in the Super Smash Bros. series, released in 2008 for the Wii. Super Smash Bros. Brawl is also the first game in the franchise to support online play, via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and offers the ability for players to construct their own original stages. The game features a total of 39 playable characters and 41 stages.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl also features compatibility with four kinds of controllers (the Wii Remote on its side, the Wii Remote and Nunchuk combination, the Classic Controller, and the Nintendo GameCube controller), while its predecessors only used the one controller designed for that system. The player also has the ability to change the configuration of controls and the controller type.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl features a new Adventure Mode titled "The Subspace Emissary". This mode features unique character storylines along with numerous side scrolling levels and multiple bosses to fight, as well as CG cut scenes explaining the storyline. The Subspace Emissary features a new group of antagonists called the Subspace Army, who are led by the Ancient Minister. Some of these enemy characters appeared in previous Nintendo games, such as Petey Piranha from the Mario series and a squadron of R.O.B.s based on classic Nintendo hardware. The Subspace Emissary also boasts a number of original enemies, such as the Roader; a robotic unicycle, the Bytan; a one-eyed ball-like creature which can replicate itself if left alone, and the Primid; enemies that come in many variations. Though primarily a single-player mode, The Subspace Emissary allows for cooperative multiplayer. There are five difficulty levels for each stage, and there is a method of increasing characters' powers during the game. This is done by placing collected stickers onto the bottom of a character's trophy between stages to improve various aspects of a fighter.

Like its predecessor, Super Smash Bros. Brawl introduces several new playable characters. Among them are Sonic the Hedgehog and Solid Snake, the series' first third-party fighters.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U is the upcoming fourth installment in the Super Smash Bros. series. At E3 2011, it was confirmed that a new Super Smash Bros. title was in development for the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U, with the two versions being cross-compatible with each other in some way. Screenshots and further information for the game were revealed at E3 2013. The games were revealed to be titled simply Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. The 3DS version will feature cel-shaded graphics and stages based on games for handheld consoles, while the Wii U version will feature HD graphics and stages based on games from home consoles. At the time, the only playable characters revealed were Mario, Bowser, Donkey Kong, Link, Pikachu, Kirby, Samus, Fox, and Pit, as well as three new fighters: Villager, Wii Fit Trainer, and Mega Man; the series' third third-party character. However, several more characters have been revealed since, including several more veterans, and more newcomers, being Rosalina and Luma (announced during the December 2013 Nintendo Direct), Little Mac (announced during the February 2014 Nintendo Direct), Greninja (announced during the April 2014 Super Smash Bros. Direct), Mii Fighters, Palutena (both announced during the Nintendo Digital Event at E3 2014), Pac-Man (announced at the Super Smash Bros. developer roundtable at E3 2014), Lucina, Robin (both announced during July 2014 through a live trailer on the official website), and Shulk (announced during the August 2014 Nintendo Direct). Although both versions of the game will have the same playable characters, the 3DS version was released first on September 13, 2014 in Japan, and on October 3rd, 2014 in the rest of the world, before the Wii U version will be released on November 21, 2014 in North America, November 28/29, 2014 in Europe and Australia, and December 6th, 2014 in Japan.

Gameplay

The series has a completely different gameplay compared to fighting games such as Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. Instead of making an opponent lose all of their HP, players have to knock opponents off a stage. When a character gets attacked, their damage meter (represented by percentage) increases by up to 999%, and the higher the percentage is, the easier it is to knock an opponent off the stage. After being knocked off, a player can use jumping moves to try to return to the stage.

The Super Smash Bros. series has simple controls. Rather than having to memorize buttons like in Street Fighter, Super Smash Bros. games allow the "one attack, one button" style. Also, characters do not have to face their opponent, but can run around freely. Items can be used to help players recover their percentage or to KO opponents.

Despite being a major series, Kirby was the only fighter in the first two Super Smash Bros. games, although Meta Knight and King Dedede were later added in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. King Dedede was intended to appear in Super Smash Bros., but was removed due to time constraints. He and Meta Knight were later set to appear in Super Smash Bros. Melee, but didn't make it for the same reason.

Mario series

Mario Emblem.png

The possible main series of the Super Smash Bros. series; characters from the Mario series have appeared in all three released games, and at least five will appear in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U.

Melee, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U), Dr. Mario, (Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U), Rosalina, and Bowser Jr. (both newcomers in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U; the latter having alternate costumes that replaces him with one of the Koopalings). Although the Mario series also includes Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, and Wario, they're excluded from the list, due to the fact that they have their own series and logos.

Mega Man series

MegaMan Emblem.png

Mega Man from his series of games of the same name will appear as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, as the third third-party character of the Super Smash Bros. series (after Snake and Sonic were introduced in Super Smash Bros. Brawl).

Metal Gear series

MetalGear Emblem.png

Metroid series

Metroid Emblem.png

Another of Nintendo's major series. The Metroid games are represented by Samus in all three of the released games (she will also represent the series in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U).
