Ice Climber (アイスクライマー, Aisu Kuraimā) is a game for the Arcade, originally released as Vs. Ice Climber that was later released for the NES. It consists of two kids, the Ice Climbers, Popo and Nana, as they climb to the top of an icy mountain filled with enemies such as Topis and Polar Bears to stop the evil condor at the top. The player wields a hammer to both kill enemies, and to make openings on the platform above. The game had many remakes, such as an nes game in Animal Crossing. Popo and Nana were featured in the Gamecube's Super Smash Bros. Melee, and then appeared again in it's sequel, Super Smash Bros. Brawl.


Toshihiko Nakago and Shigeru Miyamoto worked on this project together after Excitebike was completed. Following this game the team would develop Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda.


Ice Climber has been referenced in many Nintendo games, especially after the Ice Climbers appeared as playable characters in the GameCube video game Super Smash Bros. Melee and years later in the Wii video game Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Ice Climber has been represented in games such as Animal Crossing and the WarioWare series.
