Over the past year, a group of more than 30 artists worked on reanimating the classic Super Smash Bros. Melee intro. The result is an excellent, albeit sometimes strange, tribute.


Uploaded by The Reanimation Station, this reworked intro stays true to the original in many ways, but adds a bit of humor and uniqueness from the artists throughout.

In this video, we witness the epic battle between Ridley and Samus get interrupted by a giant Metroid, Mario dressed as Sailor Moon for some reason, and a frightening depiction of Zelda. There are some beautiful clips too, such as the re-do of Sheik at night, Bowser raging inside of a Gameboy screen, and more.

Below are a handful of screenshots to get you started, but you can watch the full tribute after the jump.
