King Bob has been hard at work for quite some time, and back in March, he released the first trailer. It features beautiful and detailed recreations of famous Nintendo locations. Classic characters like Mario, Ness, Link, and Samus battle it out as an unknown threat looms. The fighting animation seems to be a little sluggish, but this trailer represents an older version. King Bob has clarified on Reddit that he was trying to work on all of the episodes at once and rushed some of the work to get the first trailer published. These days he’s taking things slower, action episodes one at a time. His latest uploads shows EarthBound protagonist Ness skateboarding through Onett, and it looks fantastic.
Subspace Emissary inspired King Bob to create his own animation, but he hopes to create something more organic. King Bob has been studying on Nintendo lore, and he is armed himself with mountains of Super Smash Bros. Knowledge. He aims to make a story that makes all the crossovers feel natural and sensible.
We don’t know much about the plot at this time, but King Bob is planning more updates soon. He has confirmed that the early parts of the mini-series are set largely in the Mushroom Kingdom. Because of this, Mario characters will take a big role early on. We’ve reached out to see how many episodes are planned, but we haven’t heard back yet.[Source]
