Ice Climber in Super Smash Bros Melee

Origin: The Ice Climbers date back to over 15 years ago where they debuted in the arcades and then the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES roms) in their own self-titled game, called Ice Climber. The basic concept of Ice Climber was to climb a mountain level-by-level, smashing holes into the forthcoming floors with your hammer, while at the same time defending yourself from bears and other enemies. The game wasn't exactly a smaaash hit compared to the success of Super Mario Land or Donkey Kong so it went into the archives, never to be seen again... until now. The Ice Climbers game was integrated into Nintendo's Japanese release of Animal Forest and the two adorable characters (Popo and Nana) are some of the most talked about new additions to Super Smash Bros. Melee for GameCube.
