Matt is one of the 100 premade Miis who the player could compete against in Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort. As Wii Sports was released at the same time as the console, it was a staple in households across the globe and appealed to players of all stripes. Matt, however, had a story that was unlike his peers. When the player trains in boxing, there are newspaper clippings on the walls showing a younger Matt defeating the other contenders to become the Champion and wear those coveted silver gloves. Indeed, it's Matt who is the coach in these sessions, presumably wishing to pass on his advice to the next big thing in boxing.
In Wii Sports Resort, he is the Champion in swordplay and is the boss on Stage 20 of the mini game Swordplay Showdown. Matt's prowess in these sports is the stuff of legend and gamers would do their utmost to challenge this titan and take his crown. However, he wouldn't go out without a fight. Nowadays, Matt is a symbol of undeniable skill and to defeat him in any of these pursuits is a medal of honour.
Check out this recreation of the Mortal Kombat trailer in Lego below. Matt versus Scorpion - now that's a battle I'd like to see.
Stacked Towels is the mind behind the Wii Sports Resort set, with the broken clock tower from Wuhu Plaza and various activities, and it's been proposed through the Lego Ideas initiative. Fans think up of a build that is unique and interesting to themselves and the community, and submit their suggested set for people to vote and support the idea. If it surpasses 10,000 supporters, then Lego will consider the set and possibly turn it into a product. At the time of writing, there are over 1,000 backers and Lego itself has even awarded it a Staff Pick that recognises the creativity and presentation of the Wii Sports Resort set.
"Hoo boy, my nostalgic side is freaking out over the epicness of this," said RedsterTheGamer in the comments. StackedTowels has even ensured that each of the sports are playable in their recreations, with wheels that move sword fighters, a flick-fire switch for bowling, and up and down levers for the shooter and defender for basketball. It would be a brilliant build if it gets the support needed for Lego to bring it into being, so you know what to do.
