Super Smash Bros. Legend is an upcoming game in the Super Smash Bros. franchise, developed by AzaCraft Gaming. It asks the question of "What if the Super Smash Bros. series began in 2015?", and was released for the Wii U.
The gameplay, like most Smash games, doesn't involve the standard health bars system of fighting. Instead, players use special attacks to try and knock other players off the stage. The more damage characters take, the farther they fly when they are hit.
Most gamemodes from the original games return, such as Team Smash, 8 Player Smash, Smash Run, Classic, Adventure, and Target Test. Story Mode from Brawl also makes a return.
There are 20 starting characters.

He is the obligatory balanced character in the game with all-around stats, and is a good character for beginners.
Mario's cowardly brother, Luigi plays similarly to his brother, but he has a few different moves of his own.
