Today is a fairly momentous occasion and a good reason to celebrate. The Super Smash Bros series has been going strong for 20 years! January 21st marks the 20th anniversary of the Super Smash Bros on the N64 in Japan. The game’s creator, Masahiro Sakurai came up with the idea for the game and worked on it in secret with Satoru Iwata. Now 20 years on, it is one of Nintendo’s biggest franchise which brings together many of Nintendo’s iconic characters into one Smashing Free-For-All.

To commemorate the occasion, both Masahiro Sakurai and Nintendo have spoken a few chosen words on their Twitter accounts:

“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 supremely happy. Thank you so much for playing.”

The Japanese Smash Bros Account also shared a message:

“Also 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!”
