Smash Fan sharing a 64 Bit Masterpiece of a Mod

Recommended Posts

Since everyone is telling me it's ok, I guess I will bring it up.

I've been into Smash Brothers since the very beginning of the series.

It's been my favorite game series for a long time.

The original will always be my favorite entry.

So when I found out from an N64 Mod YouTuber by the name of Snooplax that there was a mod of Super Smash Brothers for Nintendo 64 I was hooked

But... We need to do story time.

Snooplax made a video of a Scam artist doing a Kickstarter for Smash 64.

The "mod" was called Smash Overload... It was terrible....

Horrible models and obviously just pasting character models over Existing fighters.

The Kickstarter was immediately shut down because of intense backlash.

However Snooplax taught me there was hope for Smash 64 fans.... 

A team of Nintendo 64 modders of the highest quality formed and dedicated their time to creating Smash Remix.

Am expansion Mod Pack for Smash 64

Unlike Overload this Project is 100% nonprofit and refuses donations

This mod adds a lot fresh content in.

For starters:

As of Today we got 12 fighters added

Dr.Mario Ganondorf Falco and Young Link were the first release

The mod began to get a decent following.

Then followed Dark Samus.

As time went on the started to do Smash ultimate style Trailers for characters

Wario became the first Original non Clone fighter they made bases on his Wario Land moveset.

They also added the ability to play as Bosses such as Metal Mario and Giant Donkey Kong

Then came Lucas. Unfortunately Lucas is considered BY FAR the worst character.

Bowser got his own preview which even including a fully Playable Giga Bowser made from Scratch. They also added 12 character battle which functions as Smash down from Ultimate.

Next added was Wolf and a decent surprise Conker the Squirrel from Conker's Bad Fur Day. Along side a new classic mode that is always different every time you play it as the opponents are always random excluding certain rounds.

Hell, they even made an April fool's day joke a playable character, Mad Piano from Super Mario 64. 

The Most Current update added Mewtwo from Pokémon. Along side a new All Star mode.

But the biggest thing of reference for this Forum.... At the end of their 1.0.0 update video they left the Newly debuted Mewtwo defeating everyone in battle. Everyone was powerless against him...

But then a familiar light sound played...

The Legendary Hero King from the Kingdom of Altea, Marth became the final fighter added for this update.

Marth was given his own Stage with Castle Seige and Caeda can be seen flying in the background.

They put a lot of effort into him. The cape was the hardest part due to physics not being easy to animate.

This mod is very incredible and I love it's got a fanbase.

I really hope we see Roy added in the future. Marth and Roy are Smash legends.

I hope you all like my little history lesson about this amazing project.

There is still a lot they have planned.

But for now I'd like to leave you all with a snippet of that teams talent.

I'm gonna show you guys an Excerpt from the Trailer where Marth was revealed.

I hope you all enjoy it

I think I saw some videos about this a few months ago. Remember the Ganondorf mod specifically. One piece of interesting news for the Smash 64 fanbase is that the new N64 service on the switch has online play. So playing Smash 64 online might be legitimately possible if they release it

A few years ago I speedran the bonus stages of Smash 64, and I believe that was when they properly released Smash Remix. I was not as tech savvy with emulation then as I am now, so I never tried it out, but some of us in the discord were running those new bonus stages for fun. I have no interest in Smash 64, competitively. My Melee days are over, and 64 has always been nothing but zero to deaths with no defensive options. I remember thinking to myself if I did care to get good at the game, I would probably main Fox. Because Fox just feels really good. I loved Project M back when that was getting official updates, so I'm happy to hear that another game is getting the same treatment.

The great thing about Remix is it's focus is on expanding 64 and playing with friends.

The Tournament scene is an after thought.

It's a lot of fun. It can be played on real hardware

They also got cool options like Battlefield and Omega stages.

An entire slew of original stages

They even let you play Japanese and Pal versions of the Original cast.

Think Super Street Fighter II Turbos Old characters.

They all get their own Break the Targets and Board the Platforms.

In the Remix 1P you get different stages that they made 100% sure it's possible to beat.

Examples Kirby going to Pikachu's board the Platforms

Fox going to Captain Falcons Break the Targets.

Other cool features are

shield color selection.

Crew battles

Skeleton mode (turns Bowser into Dry Bowser)

Hitbox mode

Dark Mode

Random knockback

Input lag mode for online

And my favorite addition being able to choose new costumes for the cast

They already have their own netplay server for Remix 🙂

I hear it's very smooth and every versus mode works flawlessly

I've seen videos of this mod before. Neat stuff, makes one think about what a Smash 64 with a budget could have been like. But there's something missing...a certain bear and bird.

I'd love to see it happen.

But considering he's dlc that might convince Ninty a big issue...

You know how they are
