Super Smash Bros. Retro Skinning Contest

A Contest for Super Smash Bros. (Wii U)

Contest has ended.

Super Smash Bros. Retro Skinning Contest

Prologue

With a dizzying 2 kilobytes of RAM and a state-of-the-art 8-bit microprocessing unit, your Smash mods are now only limited by the power of your imagination! With up to 1MB of storage space you can work at galactic proportions, crafting mods in brilliant 16 colors on massive canvases as large as 8 x 8 pixels!

What an exciting world of computer gaming we now live in - there's virtually limitless computing power at your disposal! What can you create with this raw power?

The Contest

Bananites, set your entertainment computers to TURBO MODE! GameBanana challenges you to come up with a Retro-themed Smash mod.

Requirements

  • A retro-themed character mod for any SSB title.
  • Despite the dramatic intro above, there are no technical restrictions on entries. They can be any disk size, any amount of colors, etc.
  • Remember to Join the contest in the right column -->

What is "retro"?

You are free to interpret "retro" in different ways:

  • Pixelation
  • Long-gone retro game characters
  • Old gaming platforms and accessories
  • Styles and colors from the 80s
  • Classic retro movies (TRON, Wargames, etc)
  • 80s culture (Arcade parlors, bad haircuts, etc)

Please note, this is a Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS only contest. We've got another one planned for PC game modders.

    Quick bump to all entrants:

    I've noticed some of the contest entries containing content taken from companies (such as Namco Bandai). Considering the fact that ported content is NOT ALLOWED in any of our contests (and it should be obviously understandable why), those entries WILL NOT be judged by the contest judges and therefore will basically be disqualified.

    It's a policy that GameBanana's been known for and using a company's model (or anything else) for commercial use in any game other than the one that the model comes from, is apparently against the rules.

    Just a quick question. Do the judges rate them after the clock hits zero or when will they do that and how long will it be.

    Can I make a stage?
    This is a skinning contest only. So, unfortunately, stages don't count for the contest.
