Ice Climbers Chant Glitch Discovered In Smash Bros 3DS Version

The Super Smash Bros 3DS version has been available in Japan for just over a week, but it’s no surprise players are discovering a few glitches within the game. Unlike the Peach turnip-plucking fiasco, this glitch provides players with a rather haunting vibe from the Ice Climbers.

As we reported last week, the Ice Climbers were removed from the 3DS due to technical limitations, thereby cutting them from the Super Smash Bros character roster on both Wii U and 3DS versions. But a discovery from Twitch streamer Gema Yue of the “Nana, Popo” chant – the signature song from the Ice Climber duo – can be heard after defeating a pair of Dr. Marios when playing as Villager, which can be seen in the video above.

It’s unclear whether the Ice Climbers were a hasty switch from the game’s development, but it’s certainly a haunting remnant of the duo. Though for now, it appears the glitch can only be found in the Japanese version of the game.

Sakurai Says Including Characters From Smash Bros Melee Is Difficult Due To Aged Data

Super Smash Bros game director Masahiro Sakurai has stated that some characters are decidedly more difficult to add into a new Smash Bros title. In his latest column in Famitsu magazine, the brawler’s director previously stated why the Ice Climbers narrowly missed the roster, but he’s also commented on how difficult it can be to bring back characters from Super Smash Bros Melee due to the aged data.

According to translations, Sakurai explains part of the development process for a Smash game is to migrate data from the older games, enabling their models and animations to be developed accurately. But as Melee’s data is so aged, the team would essentially have to build those past characters from scratch, extending the development process.

Sakurai also touched upon the 3DS game’s Smash Run mode enemies, where those characters selected needed to adhere to a set of specific guidelines, ranging from enemy originality to the maintenance of balance between enemy height and weights. As such, the amount of enemies from Kid Icarus: Uprising is larger due to the original 3DS models and their ability to fit smoothly within the set enemy guidelines.
