Fan discovers unused Smash Bros. Melee item that looks a lot like GoldenEye 007’s timed mines

Posted on February 18, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in GameCube, News

YouTube user crashandcortex has managed to find an unused item in Smash Bros. Melee, which seems to be the timed mines from GoldenEye 007.

Even though Melee has been around for 16 years, a new graphic file was unearthed from the game’s files yesterday. It does give off the impression of being the Motion Sensor Bomb, but it’s actually a completely different item.

crashandcortex has come to the conclusion that its appearance is almost identical to GoldenEye 007’s timed mines. An accompanying sound effect further supports this.

crashandcortex’s video is below. He compares the timed mines and Motion Sensor Bomb, and also plays the related sound effect.

    I swear I’ve seen this before. Or am I thinking of a perfect dark item?

      It looked like this in the original Smash Bros..

      Also, I looked this up to confirm that my memory was correct, and it seems the Perfect Dark model is used in Melee…but only in the Japanese version.

        I know it was in the PAL version too, the trophy even mentions dataDyne.

    • Yeah i remember seeing something like this before too i’m just too lazy to confirm if it was this.

    I’ve always assumed it was inspired by Golden Eye but they never got the license, so they couldn’t say it was.

    The motion-sensor bomb in Smash 64 and Melee is the proximity mine from GoldenEye and Melee’s cloaking device is from Perfect Dark
