This groundbreaking 3D platformer launched alongside the Nintendo 64 in 1996 in Japan and North America, and 1997 for Europe and Australia. It was arguably the first killer app on the system, and blew away the competition. Super Mario 64 was the gold standard by which all other 3D platformers were judged for years to come.
A couple of years ago, a Kickstarter campaign was run to produce a documentary series focused on the subject of competitive Super Smash Bros. Melee play, entitled The Smash Brothers. Said campaign was successful, and production on the series began in earnest.
Today, the producers behind the series have released the nine part documentary onto YouTube for your viewing pleasure. The series covers the background of the game and the rise of the competitive scene, explains some of the advanced techniques competitors employ while fighting, and follows the exploits of a number of big names in competitive Super Smash Bros. Melee play.
You can watch the series below.
Nintendo has put out a bunch of new information for the soon to be released HD re-release of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, along with a story trailer.
The company will be releasing a special edition of the game which features a rather neato Ganondorf figure. On top of that, there will also be a WiiU System Bundle which features a GamePad with a special Zelda themed decal, not unlike the 3DS console released alongside Ocarina of Time 3D.
Unfortunately, neither of these items will be released in Australia, so get your importing hats on.
