Nintendo’s E3 2018 booth is mostly full of increasingly-sweaty attendees playing Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but it’s also home to a veritable museum of real-life custom props drawn from Smash, and therefore from the company’s rich history of games.

Kotaku EIC Stephen Totilo is on the show floor, and couldn’t help but snap a bunch of photos of the coolest-looking props to show you all. Here’s what’s up, starting with that hammer up there. That’s not a Donkey Kong hammer, it’s a Kirby hammer! Quite different.

I was not really excited about any of these until I saw the Hogan’s Alley tin can, property of the Duck Hunt duo in Smash.

Here’s Fox McCloud’s blaster and visor, from Star Fox. (And now from Starlink: Battle For Atlas, too.)

Finally, here’s the god damned Monado, from Xenoblade.

I hope Nintendo has tight security around all of these, is all I’m saying.

Give... me... that... Monado...

Hnnngggg!!!

Seriously my jaw nearly dropped on the floor when they revealed that XBC2 DLC. Torna was the most interesting part of the story and now we get to play it. Hype.

I just love everything Monolith Soft makes. I wasn’t even a jrpg-fan a few years back. Xenoblade Chronicles turned me into one over night.

Can’t wait to find out about their next project *salivating*
