Super Smash Bros. Melee released close to the GameCube back in 2001. However, it also seems to have launched alongside a slew of themed merchandise promoting the game. Nintendo seemingly went all out with merchandising the game in Japan, Melee artwork appearing on lunch boxes, postcards and even a handkerchief. However, most of the items Source Gaming discovered were never actually sold in stores, the majority appearing as prizes in various giveaways prior to the game’s launch. All this merchandise has now become sought after collectors items, so finding that precious Melee lunch box at a yard sale maybe harder than it looks. Even the Japanese Melee DVD showing footage from the game is often sold for upwards of 3000 Yen.
