With Nintendo’s Super Smash Brothers Melee: Ultra Smash Bros., the world of Nintendo’s biggest hit game has come full circle, with the company making sure players’ Nintendo Entertainment System’s ring fits and their gaming console is functional.
The rings fit, as well as the controllers, are now made from an alloy that is lighter and stronger than a regular silicon-based material.
The rings have been engineered to provide better grip and are more resistant to abuse, the company said in a statement.
The controllers have also been made from a composite material that has more strength and durability than a silicon-coated material.
In an industry that has seen a dramatic change in the gaming industry, the new Super Smash rings fit game offers players a chance to see if they can improve the performance of their Nintendo Entertainment system and controllers while playing a game.
Nintendo announced the Super Nintendo Entertainment Systems in Japan in 1999 and Europe in 2004.
The Super Smash brothers franchise was launched in North America in 2006 and now has sold more than 1.6 billion copies worldwide.
