Cult Classic Video Games by MitchellWA

Question 1

This game, initially released in 1994 (1995 in America), was written and directed by a writer better known for advertisements and essays. Despite its cult status, Nintendo would not re-release it--some saying due to copyright issues with a song used in the game--until 2013 in North America. The main character is better known to most for his appearances in the Smash Bros games. Name the GAME. (Japanese or English name accepted.)
