A GoNintendo reader was looking very critically
at the new Gooey Bomb
item in Super Smash Bros. Brawl,
and discovered what is absolutely
the origin of the item. And now that we've seen them together, it's so
obvious that the Gooey Bomb is based on the Holy Protein from Cho Aniki Seinaru Protein Densetsu.
You know, except it sticks to people and blows up instead of being orbited by two beefy dudes in Speedos, while shooting lasers.
Too bad. If we were designing Smash Bros.--
okay, if I
were designing Smash Bros.
(I don't think I can speak for Wii Fanboy in this case) it would be heavy on Cho Aniki
Now, something kind of looking like a thing from another game isn't strictly news
, but Wii Warm Up is a discussion topic, and we can discuss whatever we feel like. And today we want to talk about the Cho Aniki
series. So, if you've played any of the games, tell us why you loved them. If you haven't, go read
about the series, then come back and express your shock
