Bryan Dawson (Prima Games): Super Smash Bros. 3DS is the fourth game in the series. If you compare Super Smash Bros. 64 to Melee, the primary differences are in the sheer evolution of the series. Smash 64 was the first game, so with Melee, the development team knew they had a hit and were able to get far more creative with Melee. The transition from Melee on GameCube to Brawl for the Wii was far more brutal, as the game mechanics changed significantly. From 64 to Melee, you still feel as though you're playing the same game, but from Melee to Brawl, the difference is far more jarring.
