Save Stanley Campaign – Put Em’ in Super Smash Bros!!!!


Hey Arcaders!

You know my obsession with all things Donkey Kong 3 runs deep…32 years deep. I’ve done several posts devoted to this game, and how I feel about it’s amazing yet overlooked gameplay. More importantly, the main hero of the game, Stanley Bugman. He’s the top of a very short list of amazing Nintendo characters that have been placed on the wayside after their debut game. Heck, I use one of those characters as my icon (albeit, slightly altered.)


We’ll get back to this guy soon (he is a fighter, after all!) But this is about Stanley. He is the protagonist in Donkey Kong 3 , as you all know. He’s botanist with a pretty special sprayer (or BLASTER as I call it.)  He can even get a Super Blaster  if he gets old DK up high enough! He shoots all the bugs that attack him and his plants, as well as that mean Donkey Kong. He jumps pretty high as well (I’d say between Mario and Luigi.) For those of you that haven’t played this great game before- check it out!

Rumor has it, he’s the COUSIN of Mario and Luigi! To prove it, here’s a picture from last years annual picnic!

The resemblance is uncanny! 

Which brings me to todays post. It seems the good folks at Nintendo want our input- about what characters to put into Super Smash Bros. We touched base on it in our last episode of The Electric Circus. And for that reason, I’m starting a SAVE STANLEY campaign! It would be AMAZING to see Stanley in Super Smash Bros as a fighter! With his trusty BUG BLASTER and control of all those bugs from DK3 at his disposal (just like they did with the dog and the ducks from Duck Hunt!)  And Arcaders- just so that we are clear- it’s for this version of Smash Bros. Not a future release! and thats where YOU come in! Go over to https://cp.nintendo.co.jp/us/ and you can cast your vote for Stanley! And you have to 10/3/2015 to get em’ in! And if we get enough votes, and get him in the game, I’ll be putting a special shirt design on the T-shirt page to purchase (coming soon!) that will show the world you voted for your favorite Bug Blasting 8-Bit Hero! So, click on the banner and let you voice be heard!


Thanks for your vote, and-
