Coming to a Browser Near You

Posted 2012-12-30 06:34 PM CST by Matt Soukup

2012 is coming to a close, and development of Smash Bros Classic has slowed in favor of other projects. I'd like to keep everyone up-to-date with where it sits.

To maximize the reach of this game, we have decided to redevelop it as a browser-based game. Unlike other browser-based Smash Bros games, this version will not rely on a Flash plugin or the like. It will use the HTML5 canvas and be playable directly on this site, which will also act as the manual and account manager.

Much of the redevelopment will focus on making collisions more efficient as a JavaScript backend is much slower than compiled C++. Our goals with a first release are superb controls and collision system. Other modes (e.g. Adventure) will only be added after we have a good engine in place. I've had a vision of the game play of an NES Smash Bros game, and I fully intend to bring it to fruition.

Until next time, here's to a new year and a playable demo in 2013. Happy smashing!

This is awesome! It'd be so cool if they have a retro-mode like this when doing the new smash bros on the 3DS. Nintendo should recruit you.
