The puppet Geno, from the SNES classic Super Mario RPG, has long had a dedicated fanbase eager to play as him in Super Smash Bros., and while the support for his inclusion in an official Smash games has been dwindling since Brawl, Geno may finally be granting his fans their wish.

Project M players at the recently-held Summit tournament were in for a surprise when the game—the newly-released 3.5 build—accidentally loaded a corrupted version of a 3D Geno model when someone was trying to play as R.O.B. The bug caused the game to crash, and the crowd went wild at the sight.

We know the Project M team is hard at work making brand new characters for their extensive mod. It was discovered just a few months ago that Lyn and Knuckles are playable in a non-public build of the game, and the same footage shows Isaac on the character select screen.

Could this renew your interest in the future of Project M?

Our Verdict


Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
