Welcome to the Official homepage of SD Remix!
SD Remix is a mod of Super Smash Bros. Melee designed to better balance the game through character buffs only. The end goal of the project is to create a game, where every character is viable on the competitive level.
While the original Super Smash Bros. Melee arguably has a relatively balanced cast, many characters lack tools to excel at the highest competitive level. Examples of such characters include Pichu, Roy and Kirby. Perhaps this was intentional, as the original creator of the series, Masashiro Sakurai, never intended Smash to become a competitive title and has even expressed as slight dislike towards the competitive direction of Smash, as he does not want to exclude any non-competitive audiences from the franchise. This is what he has said on the topic:
Basically, Smash Bros. is designed to be sort of targeted at the center, intermediate players, and if you think of sort of a skill graph or something where if you’re targeting just the peak of that performance level, you’re targeting a very small group of people. We wanna avoid a situation where it becomes a game sort of like other competitive fighting games, where it’s only appreciated by a very small, passionate group of sort of maniac players. We definitely don’t want that sort of situation. It’s supposed to be a fun game for a wide variety of people.
But that’s not to say that I don’t appreciate very high-level competitive play, the type of very refined competitive gameplay that happens in other fighting games.
SD Remix is a mod made by the competitive community for the competitive community, although casual players can enjoy it just as well! Please see the Changelist and Characters pages for more information on the changes we have made!
