Project X is a gameplay modification of Super Smash Bros. Wii U designed to get the gameplay more closely resemble that of Super Smash Bros. Melee mainly, and also Super Smash Bros. to a lesser extent. This means that the speed of gameplay has been generally increased, with many Melee mechanics being restored. The development team is partly descended from the original developers for Brawl+, now known as the PMDT, or Project M Dev Team (formerly the PXBR, or Project X Backroom). It has members from over ten countries, though only an NTSC version has been released. Project X's character roster notably includes Wolf, Snake and Ice Climbers, three characters from Brawl that are not playable in Smash 4, with altered graphics and movesets. Project X can only get done with the Wii U version and is not compatible For The 3DS.
Project X has been commonly featured at several national tournaments, such as the Zenith series, The Big House series, and Apex 2014. Project X saw a rapid rise in its popularity as more characters became playable and the mod has been featured more commonly at Smash tournaments; the number of entrants for Apex 2014's PX singles event notably surpassed the amount of entrants for the original Smash 4.
Almost every SSB4 stage reappears in Project X however some stages were replaced with different stages, or just new stages altogether.

Ton's of fighters that generally did terribly in Melee and Brawl have seen large improvements in their Project M tier placings, such as Template:PM going from the low tiers to the upper-mid tier.
