Super Smash Bros. Melee Fans Mod Newest Game To Play Like Melee

A development team that is well-versed in Super Smash Bros. Melee is trying to transmogrify the newest Smash Bros. for Wii U to play more like the game they love.

The team behind Super Smash Bros. Melee HD, a project designed to bring the gameplay of the 2001 Gamecube game to modern systems, has released a trailer for a mod to Smash Bros. for Wii U to play like Melee. The mod reverts all the movesets of returning characters to their Melee counterparts, adjusts the speed and hitstun to allow for combos, puts back in wavedashing and L-cancelling, and more.

You can see the trailer for the mod below. The competitive Melee community is still trying to figure out long term solutions for needing older TVs and hardware for tournaments, so modernizing the game has become a priority in the Melee development community.

 

Our Take
There is probably an audience for this but it isn't me. Hopefully the Melee community gets everything they want out of this mod.
