    They should do a remake of this game with separate episodes with one starring Popo and another starring Nana (Kind of like how Captain Toad had separate episodes starring both Captain Toad and Toadette).

    This is one of my favorite NES games. They need to make a new Ice Climbers game similar to this one, but with more levels and better graphics (even though I liked the old-style graphics, it's kind of a granted to have polished graphics for remasters/sequels for consoles that are heavily oriented around 3-D graphics.) They could easily give the game good replayability, by making it where there is an online competitive mode; they could make it where whoever gets to the top of the mountain first wins.

    Why is it that every NES gameplay I find on USclip is sped up compared to all my games. Does it have something with that most videos are from the US where you have 60 Hz electric power supply, compared to here in Euro-land where we have 50 Hz?

    I can't believe Sakurai said they got Ice Climbers working in the 3DS version in 2015 yet he didn't bring them back. But hey, we got characters like Ryu, Cloud, Corrin, and Bayonetta. And since Smash 4 modding/hacking can now create custom moveset, and rig models, maybe we can get them back.

    • Chuck the Quail

      Screw Bayonetta, She's a Dark magical girl.

      i'm sure if Bayonetta must be Removed out Smash Bros, that will be Better to us.
      Seriusly, She's too Dangerous for the Others Characters (Especialy for the Duck Hunt Dog).

      I'd say it would be so we'd get a sense of nostalgia. I mean, for a lot of people, these are the character they grew up with. Also, it's fun to make Kirby fight Bowser.

      Mr @Dano Beltrano​.
      SSB had a Weird roster of their Characters.
      Everyone don't MATTERS​ That.
      The Game is Good, but the Characters.
      That Game should be Better ir it had original Characters.

    They should remake Ice Climbers like they did with Kid Icarus. Change up the style, if it gets popular then bring it back. The problem is there are no good ideas to bring them back. What's gonna happen? Ice Climbers RPG?

    Great player and fast too!!* : ) I used to play this game in my 20s 20 years ago on the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). I started with an Atari system when I was 12. Then me and my two younger brothers got a Nintendo system. Atari and Nintendo were the best!!!* :) ♡♡♡♡♡ Miss them!!* Does anyone remember the white polar bear that would come and jump on the screen shaking it when you took too long which would cause you to go up a level on that mountain?!* : ) That was hilarious!!*; )

      @Lenn256i I think they suit more a plataformer puzzle game. You have Popo and Nana and each of them have diferent abilities/items and you have to combine them to solve some puzzles... something like Trine or The Lost Vikings

    SmashMarioPro2000 (OLD) 4 years ago +6

    Here's hoping Sakurai will give these guys a Kid Icarus Uprising like reboot I mean it is their 30th anniversery coming up and it would make up for them not being in Smash Bros 4.

    • Medachod
      Medachod 3 years ago

      @SmashMarioPro 2000 Yeah, I suppose, but they were mostly for advertising at best. Cloud for the remake, Corrin for Fates.
      But, Sakurai might pull a fast one and slip them in the February update, who knows. He did say they were working on the 3DS a bit earlier this year.
      It would honestly be incredible if he brought them back, since they did show up in two games. It makes sense.

    • SmashMarioPro 2000
      SmashMarioPro 2000 3 years ago +1

      Yeah but at the end of the day the fact that we got characters like Cloud and Bayonetta in made up for that IMHO. I still like Project M and all and enjoy playing Ice Climbers. I still wish I could make them duke it out with characters like PAC MAN, Ryu, Bayonetta, Cloud, Megaman and my 16 Ice Climber fests. It hurts that they can't challenge those fighters but honestly whether or not Ice Climbers return is up to Sakurai and his team trying to get them on the 3DS.

    • Medachod
      Medachod 3 years ago +1

      @SmashMarioPro 2000 Reboot? Sakurai won't be on the next one, dude. It will probably have Goku, Shrek and all that since it will have a brand new team behind it.
      But, you have Project M to play them on so no need to say they never had a chance at all. Snake, Squirtle, Ivysaur and all of the other rejects are still here for us to play; even in high definition if you have Dolphin.
      But, who knows, maybe Sakurai might throw the curve ball of the century and slide in an extra character in February; two certain characters, since he clarified that they were functional on the 3DS after further testing.
      Truthfully, the biggest disappointment for me came from the fact that we had no new game modes, like a Smash Run for Wii U or something similar in an adventure-esque kind of way.

    • SmashMarioPro 2000
      SmashMarioPro 2000 3 years ago

      +Medachod Well they didn't make it back. I'm alittle sadden by that but hey we got Bayonetta and Corrin which look like fantastic fighters. I was hoping Sakurai would get them but I'm now OK with them being gone. They will return one day in Smash 5 or in a new game if Sakurai reboots the series. Well I think it's time I gave them a faithful farewell. "Popo, Nana, you two were some of my favorite characters in the Smash Bros series and had a part of my childhood. I miss you alot but like every journey we must leave some behind and you unfortunately didn't return. This isn't good bye forever. I'm sure we'll meet again someday. And when that day comes, it will be a reunion to remember"

    • Medachod
      Medachod 3 years ago

      @SmashMarioPro 2000 Someone mentioned it to me a while ago, and I believe he had the source. If it wasn't for USclip's shitty comment arrangement system where I have to continuously wait for it to load, I could find it again for you.
      But, keep in mind that this very same person did not particularly mention that they were coming to the game. However, what you just said may very well link to that entirely, so I have lots of faith. We have two sources that could very well become one next month.

    I don't get why this game is considered a classic. It doesn't hold up well at all.
    The whole thing has aged terribly. Especially the controls. They are wonky and not intuitive at all. You keep falling through platforms when trying to jump on them.
    It's one of those games where the difficult part isn't playing the game but working your way through the bad controls.
