Sure! Captain Rainbow may have been one of Nintendo’s biggest commercial flops, but it was still brimming with personality and creativity. Their treatment of many old and forgotten Nintendo characters ranged from cute to…interesting…but was certainly entertaining. The game’s music shares in the characteristically Japanese charm.

We’ve had a lot of new followers in the past several months; in fact, we’re coming up on 14,000! It occurs to us that many of you might not know about all of the features we offer on this blog. There has been a great deal of content on this blog in the past year or more we’ve been active, so organizing it has been a real challenge. But if you’d like to get the most out of our content, we’ve put together a guide to introduce you all to the details of Challenger Approaching!

Look under the break to learn the nitty-gritty.

mystyshenanigans asked:

With the Japanese release 2 weeks away, do you think the supposed remaining characters will be revealed before or after release?

At this point, probably some of both! We wouldn’t be surprised if we got one or two more big reveals before launch, but there are probably a few secrets Sakurai will want players to discover on their own. We’ll be sure to keep things posted, and remember that we use the tag “Smash Spoilers” if you want to avoid them.

Logic and Tricks, Pt. 1

What’s up Challengers, my name is CancerTurtle, and I’m back again for some more moveset speculation about characters who have little to no chance of making it in. This time it’s about two of my favourite characters in all of gaming, who just happened to have a new game released in America, which I’ve already owned and completed thanks to my Australian benefits. These two men taught me that no matter how clear a situation may seem, you should only ever trust solid evidence. Without them, I wouldn’t be spouting logic with complicated wording like I do these days. These two…

Y’know, this situation reminds me of a puzzle.

Professor Layton finds the answer!

    Pac-Man World Rally

Pac-Man might not seem like a series known for its soundtracks, those unforgettable arcade sounds still manage to inspire some great tracks. The soundtrack to Pac-Man World Rally is especially impressive, incorporating classic tunes into new forms. The Cloud Garden theme cleverly works in the classic Start music, the Act 1 theme (“They Meet”) from Ms. Pac-Man, and the Forest theme from the obscure SNES title Pac-In-Time.

Who brought us such a rockin’ mix of this odd collection of tunes, you ask? Why, none other than Dweezil Zappa (rock guitarist and son of the legendary Frank Zappa) and Tommy Tallarico (composer and co-founder of Video Games Live)!

We can’t imagine what bizarre events led to this collaboration, but we’re glad it happened. Enjoy!

Lacking Depth, But In a Good Way

For the past two Smashes, we’ve seen stages that hearken back to some of Nintendo’s earliest video games, and serve as the home for their oldest character.

The Flat Zones combine elements of various Game & Watch devices into a potpourri of old-school charm. With two such stages so far, one might wonder what a third visit to Superflat World might look like. That’s right, it’s time for a long-overdue edition of…

Superflat World: Flat Zone 3

Hey guys!  Just a little heads up, things might be a tad scarce around here for a couple days.  Tight schedules and hella computer problems, ammirite?

But if you guys are looking for something to keep you entertained for one of the last few weekends we’ll have to go Smash-less, then we HIGHLY recommend watching this series, “There Will Be Brawl.”  Because who doesn’t love seeing their favorite Nintendo character reinterpretted in a dark, gritty world where Olimar is a raving lunatic, Dedede runs a night club and Kirby might as well be Hannibal Lector? Warning: This series features mature content. Viewer discretion is advised (especially if you’re at work).

We’ll be back in full force as soon as we can.  Enjoy!
