Slippi has revived the Nintendo‘s hit ’00s fighting game Super Smash Bros. Melee, turning it into an online multi-player game. Jas ‘Fizzi’ Laferriere is the brains behind Project Slippi, a program that enables improved streaming video quality, online matchmaking, and many other gameplay features.
The purpose behind Slippi is “to bring Melee into the future,” They’ve achieved this through their joint efforts with Dolphin, a GameCube and Wii emulator.
The matchmaking aspect is a fundamental part of this gaming experience as players are matched and can play against one another competitively.
William “Leffen” Hjelte, Evo 2018 champion, released a 20-minute video running through the program and giving viewers a play-by-play.
The Slippi program is a game changer, not only because it brought back an old gem, but also because it offers a more quality experience of the classic game.
Founder Laferriere said in 2019, “finally announcing that I’ve quit my job and will be working on Slippi full-time. Even in its current state, Slippi has provided a lot of value to Melee, but I believe that so much more can be done.”
