Nintendo’s collection of characters is impressive enough to have a whole series dedicated to them. Smash isn’t the be all end all though, and a new video has shouted out a pair of unexpected but no less “familiar faces”.

Usual suspects like Mario, Kirby, and Donkey Kong are present and accounted for in this latest video. More notable, however, are the appearances by what many would call the earliest PlayStation stars – Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon.

Sure, the orange and purple heroes have popped up on Game Boy Advance, Wii, and more, so it’s no rarity to have them around on Nintendo’s latest system. But mentioned in the same breath as The Legend of Zelda? Now that’s a woah-worthy honor.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
