IGN: Looking Back at Smash Bros Melee

IGN: How do you follow up on a unique and successful fighting game? If you're Nintendo, you do it by making absolutely everything bigger and shinier, of course. Super Smash Bros. Melee was one of GameCube's most important titles. Despite releasing stateside on December 3, 2001, just missing the launch of the purple lunchbox, many would argue it was the showcase title for the new system.

The story is too old to be commented.

One of the best games of last gen. I spent hours playing it on the Cube. =]

This is my favorite fighting game. I really hope they do it right with Cafe. I am hoping for a hardcore online mode, tons of DLC, and truly HD 60frames gameplay.

My favorite Gamecube game excluding The Legend of Zelda Collection.

IGN has been riding Smash Bros here lately...

Do you think they are trying to tell us something?

*things that make you go hmmm*

I hope so. One Smash bros on the N64, one on GC, one on Wii and hopefully one on Café

I'm hoping for a reveal at E3 this year along with a big character reveal.

Perhaps Mario is walking along the Mushroom Kingdom when a servbot hops out of a pipe, they lock eyes then Mario is knocked down with a ball of energy. He picks up his hat and dusts himself off then looks up to see Megaman standing there.

All I'm sayin is that the squees would be deafening.

As you guys are hinting that there maybe another SSB game coming out for Project Cafe. lets really think about that for a second. lets look at SSBB. what did that game offer asides from newcomers? from my time playing it it was semi the same game with obvious balance/buff/nerf changes. Now here is a question; if a new SSB game is to come out. What new thing is it going to offer besides newcomers and new balance/buff/nerfs? it'd be awesome if they added a new mechanic like how melee enabled characters to dodge.

Now that I think about it, what is going to make that game standout from it's previous game?

in a side note: whose gonna be in the next SSB game? my money is on King K. Rool.
