  1. I’d still make the case that Little Mac should count as a Western designed character. Next Level basically had to re-do him from the ground-up for 3D. Doc to an exent too.

    1. Yes, but they’re redesigns of existing Japanese created characters, whereas Diddy Kong, while originally envisioned as a redesign for DK Jr., is his own entity, British made, no less. 😛

    2. Sakurai mainly discusses the classic arcade game when introducing Little Mac in his column, and has included numerous references to that version (such as the wireframe alts). So, I personally wouldn’t count that as the older titles has had a huge impact on Little Mac’s appearance in Smash.

  2. Easy: 9/10
    Challenging: 7/10
    Difficult: 3/10
    Master: 1/10
    True/False: 2/6

    Started great but fell apart in the end. Some answers weren’t completely wrong though. I remembered 6 of the forbidden seven for example, but the last one was wrong.

  3. (finally got around to this) Out of a possible 100 points, I could only get 37… and I thought I knew a lot of Smash trivia…

    Those last two categories were hard, I only got two right from each. I totally wasn’t expecting questions like those.
