Anyone who knows Bandai Namco and their collaboration with Nintendo naturally immediately thinks of Super Smash Bros. When it comes to action side view games, Super Smash Bros. is the title of choice for many gamers.

With a long history of games, great characters and much more, the franchise has made a name for itself.
