Discuss in talkback!

I did this using one life! And it took less than an hour!

Do you hear those drums in the distance? Presented by Anonymous Dinosaur and Nintendo World Report, this is Smashterpieces - a casual walk through the history of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Roster. On this show, hosts Joe DeVader and Matt Zawodniak are playing one game for every fighter in the newest Super Smash Bros. game, from 1984's Duck Hunt to 2017's The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Each game will be live-streamed by both of us, and then we'll convene to talk about it on the podcast.

Those drums are the sound of Smashterpiece #18, Donkey Kong Country! On this episode Joe and Matt jump into one of the most historically significant games on the Super Nintendo, famous for its state of the art graphics and a defining moment for Nintendo’s ape himself. How did Matt’s first ever playthrough of the game go? How is this game connected to the evolution of a different famous Nintendo property (mostly through spite)? How does the level design and variety hold up today? And most importantly, how good is the legendary soundtrack? All this and more in today’s episode!

Join us next time as we leap through a painting into the third dimension in Smashterpiece #19: Super Mario 64
