The sequel to Super Smash Bros. keeps the same basic premise as its predecessor, but for the second installment in the popular fighting series Nintendo really outdid themselves by adding better graphics, faster speed, and an even bigger roster of characters to choose from. Super Smash Bros. Melee is easily among the most inventive fighting games ever released and is often cited as the best in the series. Melee became a labor of love for game director Masahiro Sakurai, and anyone who’s played the game can tell he poured his heart and soul into it. Not only is it the GameCube’s best-selling game, but perhaps the system’s best game period. Now years later, a group of over 30 animators have come together and recreated the epic intro to the game, each contributing with their own art style. The result is a tribute to one of the best fighting games of all time!
