Super Smash Bros. Brawl has shipped for the Nintedo Wii, restoring the Nintendo faithful’s belief that triple-A games can and will appear on Nintendo’s newest console.
Featuring a host of playable characters — including Solid Snake and Sonic The Hedgehog — Super Smash Bros. Brawl is an encyclopedia of Nintendo’s video game history as well as the industry’s. But with classic Nintendo special items, stages and music, it’s still focused on Nintendo characters.
Billed as “the biggest and deepest brawl of them all,” Super Smash Bros. Brawl ups the ante with several new modes and wireless features. By logging onto Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, players can now enjoy online battles with friends near and far. An extensive new single-player mode is perfect for solo brawlers who want to hone their skills.
A sprawling adventure mode called “The Subspace Emissary” lets players jump and brawl their way through enemy-packed side-scrolling levels, meeting up with other characters, watching incredible cinematics and taking on massive bosses — solo or in a cooperative two-player mode. And of course there’s the series hallmark: elaborate battles that pit up to four players against one another in a brawl to see who’s the last one standing.
Online battles aren’t the only wireless boost in this latest Super Smash Bros. installment. With Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, players can share photos, swap replays, team up for mini-games and even create their own stages to share with friends or submit to Nintendo. Every day, Nintendo will offer one of these fan-created stages for players everywhere to try out.
For an even more customized Brawl experience, players can select their favorite music and choose the control scheme they like best, whether it’s the Wii Remote alone, Wii Remote with Nunchuk, Classic Controller or Nintendo GameCube controller.
