Masahiro Sakurai continues to deliver recreations and representations of games via Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It may have been a light week for anniversaries, but it just so happens three of my favorites were cause for screenshot celebrations.

Among them is the original Animal Crossing, released on N64 in Japan before getting upgraded a couple times and moving out into the world on GameCube. That’s twenty years now of Tom Nook, K.K. Slider, and plenty of friendly neighbors. Just don’t get Blathers started on a history lecture…

It’s joined by The Mysterious Murasame Castle, Kirby and the Amazing Mirror, and (celebrating its 9th anniversary today) Fire Emblem Awakening. With Robin, Chrom, and Lucina all playable fighters (albethey Echoes in the latter two’s case) it’s one of the most represented single games in all of Smash. Not bad for what was almost the final Fire Emblem.

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.
