Ice Climber is a popular NES game. Although there was never a offical sequal, many fan-games were made, giving it the title of the Ice Climber series. The series stars two young children, named Popo and Nana, and their qeust to climb the Icicle Mountain to catch Condor, often to resuce Cabbages,Eggplants, or Cucumbers.
One of the things that renewed Ice Climber was it's inclusion in the SSB series. The series first appeared in Super Smash Bros. Combat with the inclusion of The Ice Climbers as playable characters, and Mt. Icicle as a playable stage. The Ice Climbers then appeared in Super Smash Bros. Adventure as two seperate playable characters. Adventure also contained the Icicle Mountain world as the 11th world, with King Topi and Giga Bowser being the bosses. A tune from Ice Climber is confirmed for Super Smash Bros. Clash. It is unknown if the Ice Climbes will be present. The Ice Climbers (as well as a song from their series) have recently been confirmed to be playable in SSBR.
