The Best Retro Gaming Comebacks of All Time (Super Smash Bros 4 3DS/ Wii U)

The three retro newcomers (kind of).
You can't believe how excited I am for this game. I wasn't able to order the Japanese version, but this game looks really cool. Even though this technically isn't a Mario game, it's still a game with Mario in it (as a main character). Plus I've been trying to do this post for a long time. So let's start.

Even though Pac-Man and Little Mac aren't technically counted as "retro", when you think of Little Mac and Pac-Man, you don't think of "Arm Wrestling" (yes, that's a real game in the Punch Out series) and "Pac-Man Pinball Arrangement". You think of the original "Pac-Man" and the third game in the series, "Mike Tyson's Punch Out" (or the arcade Punch Out or whatever). So I count them as "retro".

Anyway, time to finally get back on task. So the other person is... wait- WHAT!?

If you guys can't read Japanese (like me) that says DUCKHUNT. And that's the Duckhunt Dog and a blue duck from the NES game "Duck Hunt". But that's not all. There's also people from "Aggon's Ally" and "Wild Gunman" included in not only attacks, but also his final smash. The only problem with these two is the Dog's laugh has changed to the very annoying and taunting beeping to a less annoying and very quiet actual laugh. That's not really a bad thing, but that's his trademark and you can barely even hear the laugh under the music. However, when I found out this wasn't a rumor, I wouldn't stop asking for the game! Unfortunately, I have to wait until Christmas.
Still, on to Pac-Man. I love how they not only incorporated the classic Pac-Man into this, but also other retro Namco games. Games like "Galaga", "Mappy", even "Don-Chan"! I just love Pac-Man. But that's not even the coolest part: his final smash is he turns into Super Pac-Man and eats the other contestants. They even turn into a pair of eyes like the ghosts!
The final character is Little Mac, who even though is cool to have in SSB4, it's not really that exciting. I mean, it's better than his unfortunate appearance in Captain Rainbow where he's super obese, but they didn't really do anything to him. Sure, Doc Martin and Giga Mac are in it, but otherwise he's just punching. However, I do like the fact that he's returning.
I do like this outfit, though.
In conclusion, I'm very excited about these retro characters, even though they each have at least one downfall. But I really want this game and I'll definitely do another post on this game. However, next post is very special, for it's my 20th post! See you there!
