Trivia[edit]

  • The title of this event is almost identical to the phrase “the year is 20XX”, a term referring to an unspecified date in the 21st century, which has become a meme among many gaming communities, including Super Smash Bros. Melee.
  • Eight and the female Pokémon Trainer were the only playable characters at the time who originated in the 2000s but were not present in the event, due to them being alternate costumes for the Luminary and the male Pokémon Trainer, respectively.
    • The Koopalings and Alph, however, can be selected as alternate costumes for Bowser Jr. and Olimar, which would break the theme as they debuted in the 1980s and 2010s respectively.
  • Living Room is the only stage from a 2000s game not present in the event. Although it is specifically based off of Nintendogs + Cats, released in 2011, the general concept first appeared in the original Nintendogs, released in 2005. This is opposed to Bringing Back the '80s using Palutena's Temple and Boxing Ring, and this event's Tomodachi Life, which debuted in earlier games but are based on more recent appearances.
  • Oddly, even though Battlefield can be played on in the event, Final Destination cannot, despite both (Battlefield and Final Destinations in general, not the specific versions) debuting in Super Smash Bros. Melee, which released in 2001.
