It is now January 21st in Japan, and that means it’s been 20 years since the original debut of Super Smash Bros! Series creator Masahiro Sakurai who has been on the series since the beginning, has posted a special message to fans on social media.
Smash Bros. is 20 years old today! Over these 20 years, I’ve seen so many people enjoy this series in so many ways – at home, at hangouts, at conventions, even in business offices! Development has always been hard on me, but I’m super happy. Thank you so much for playing.

The official Japanese Smash Bros account also had a message for fans:
“On this day: the first “Super Smash Bros.” went on sale 20 years ago (on January 21st, 1999). It’s thanks to all of your loyal support that we’ve been able to keep this series going even today. Thank you so much!”
