2014/11: Super Smash Bros. (N64) - Peardian
« on: October 31, 2014, 10:21:33 pm »

For this month's "Maps Of The Month" featurette, I wish to draw your attention to Peardian's Super Smash Bros. (N64) maps.

Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 64 is the first major Nintendo crossover. Twelve fighters from across the Nintendo universe duke it out...just because? The whim of Master Hand? Who knows? Whatever the reason, it's ridiculously crazy multiplayer fun, and paves the way for a series known for its expanding roster (always speculated on by any fan, hopeful that their favourite Nintendo character - or even non-Nintendo - makes the cut) and insane amount of Nintendo-related content.

For this first instalment, there are only eight characters available at the start, up to twelve when they are all unlocked. Even so, that's still over three dozen maps, including each character's "Break The Targets!" and "Board The Platforms!" challenges, all by Peardian, whose N64 mapping wizardry brought us two versions of each map - one with tips and another without.

Super Smash Bros. is a celebration of Nintendo history, but now about to enter its fifth iteration, it has its own history, so let's not forget its roots on the N64...(and a time before dependency on the GameCube controller).

So to recognize the effort of making these smashing maps, Peardian's Super Smash Bros. (N64) maps will be known as's Maps Of The Month for November 2014.
