I am a PS3 owner and someday hope to be a PS4 owner, yet I am not at all dissatisfied with my choice to delay purchase, solely based on the current PS4 library. When I transitioned from a Playstation 1 to a Playstation 2, I was pleasantly surprised that I could for the most part rid myself of my PS1...

Nintendo Fact Sheet


Favorites from the Nintendo family are lining up for a chance to win it all in Super Smash Bros.® Melee for NINTENDO GAMECUBE™, unveiled this year at E3. As one of the kick-off titles exclusively for NINTENDO GAMECUBE, Super Smash Bros. Melee throws players into an ultimate melee against multiple lethal enemies in which they can experience a heightened level of multi-player action intensity.

Super Smash Bros. Melee improves on the original N64 multi-player game with all-time favorite Nintendo characters – Mario, Donkey Kong, Link, Kirby, Yoshi and more – pulled from a number of hit Nintendo games. Some of the characters haven't been seen since certain NES games, such as the cult figure Ice Climber. However, these classic characters have been revamped with amazing detail to create vivid battle scenes with blows and throws never seen before.

"This game is a great way to bring our unique proprietary characters together to create a huge smash hit," says Peter Main, executive vice president, sales and marketing, Nintendo of America Inc. "We combined more than a dozen lush backgrounds from the most popular Nintendo games and enhanced them with state-of-the-art graphics and special features to create a frantic, frenzied romp that will leave players wanting more."

Due to the enhanced capabilities of the NINTENDO GAMECUBE, players can select characters based on their signature moves and weapons to battle opponents for triumph and trophies. They can choose to battle against friends, or opt for the all-new side scrolling one-player mode. Throughout the game, opponents practice moves in a training mode that judges fighting ability and specific attack skills, and then enter a new tournament mode that can handle up to 64 entrants battling at the same time. With nearly 30 new offensive and defensive items to use in battle and the ability to find and unlock secret hidden modes and new characters, competitors will have plenty of choices in their grueling match play. Players earn points through battles and can collect many figures of favorite past and present Nintendo characters to become the ultimate warrior.

Super Smash Bros. Melee will be available in November 2001.
