Super Smash Bros. 16 Bit Bash is a de-make of the Super Smash Bros. series, with the graphics, characters, and stages being inspired by games of the 16 Bit era (the late 80s-early 90s). It will mainly star characters whom had previously appeared in games on the Super Nintendo/Super Famicom. This game was inspired by the fanon game Smash Bros., except with 16-bit graphics instead of 8-bit graphics.


The game consists of eight starter characters and more unlockable characters, all of which are from the Super Nintendo/Super Famicom, and as such, the roster will only consist of characters from official games on those consoles, so Sonic the Hedgehog will not be playable. Much like any Super Smash Bros. title, more characters will be unlocked as you progress further in the game.

  • Even though Mega Man's appearance was based on Mega Man 7, his moveset is based on Mega Man 2.
  • The character Sigurd from Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu was originally planned to be playable, but was removed due to a lack of a proper special moveset.
