The Smash Bros. franchise has always been one of Nintendo's longstanding and enduring achievements.

Not to wallow too deeply in hyperbole, but the series has always maintained rabid fan-base for good reason. The series is basically the 'what if' Royal Rumble of the Nintendo universe. Who would win in a fight between Mario and Samus? Link and Pikachu? Our pre-pubescent lizard brains reel at the possible match-ups. The one shortcoming Nintendo could be accused of would be a questionable selection process when curating the fighter rosters. Sure, all of the MVPs are guaranteed a spot, but there have always been one or two questionable inclusions. Why the hell does anyone from the Wii Fit series need to make an appearance? The Villager from Animal Crossing? Why waste the space on the roster when we could be using Goku from Dragon Ball Z to go one-on-one with Mario.

That's what one fan-made, flash game has proposed. Super Smash Flash 2 v0.9a is basically Super Smash Bros. Brawl with the notable additions of Goku, Sora from the Kingdom Hearts series, Naruto, and the Black Mage from the Final Fantasy series, and many other non-Nintendo properties. You can play the game directly in your browser or download the title right here. It's going to be difficult to get anything done this morning as this is proving to be a more serious distraction than anticipated. An update is scheduled for tomorrow that will bolster the roster even further. If you're hoping to accomplish next to nothing for the next hour or so, give it a go.
