Super Smash Bros., known in Japan as Nintendo All-Star! Dairantou Smash Brothers (ニンテンドウオールスター! 大乱闘スマッシュブラザーズ), often shortened to "Smash 64", "SSB" or "SSB64", is the first game of the Super Smash Bros. series. Created by HAL Laboratory, it is the only Super Smash Bros. game to be rated E; while the other two games are rated T, according to ESRB. As a relatively low-budget game with an unusual concept, there were not originally any plans to export the game outside Japan. Only the game's unexpected popularity led to its worldwide release.

The game was released in Japan on January 21, 1999, in North America on April 26, 1999, and in Europe on November 19, 1999. The game is playable on Nintendo 64 and the iQue Player and is available on the Wii's Virtual Console. The European Virtual Console version was released on June 12th 2009, and the American Virtual Console version was released on December 21, 2009.
