'20XX' Memory Card Mod Updates Super Smash Bros Melee With New Features & Tournament Mode

20XX-Super-Smash-Bros-Melee-Memory-Card-HackUpon arrival on the Nintendo 64 in 1999, nobody really expected Super Smash Bros to become such a big hit amongst fighting game communities. With its later sequels become staple inclusions in tournaments worldwide, gamers have been fine tuning their fighting skills to become the best Nintendo brawler around. With the rules ever changing and challenges needing more acute control, a team of GameCube hackers are gearing up the release of a tournament-ready memory card which turns Super Smash Bros Melee into an all new experience.

Over time various modifications and adjustments have been made to Super Smash Bros Melee to make it as competitive as it is today. As it stands though, many of these tweaks are standalone features, something which 20XX Tournament Edition aims to remedy.

Using a hacked memory card save file for Melee, 20XX Tournament Edition somehow allows the GameCube title to access a hidden menu to alter the game’s code. This new feature allows Melee brawlers to name themselves with up to 8 characters, save replays of matches to memory card, freeze stages to prevent the likes of wind on Kirby’s arena, and even an all new game mode known as Taunt Battle. Furthermore the added Tournament Mode allows those setting up the challenge to lock certain settings into place to prevent tampering.

Needless to say there’s a lot on offer here for fans of Super Smash Bros Melee. Later this year you’ll be able to download the 20XX save file for free, something which can be placed onto any homebrew enabled GameCube’s memory card with ease. If this method of installation sounds too daunting, pre-orders can be placed at the hack’s official website for a memory card already containing 20XX.

This is very cool. I just got SSB4 and I still think Melee is the best version.

"Upon arrival on the Nintendo 64 in 1999, nobody really expected Super Smash Bros to become such a big hit amongst fighting game communities."

I'm not sure I can get behind this sentence, I think Smash Bros. created it's own community and I don't think any fighting game community overly embraced it.
