Smash is back! After a gruesome, 6-year wait, the sequel to the hit video game Super Smash Bros. Melee is
finally being made for the Wii! Super Smash Bros. Brawl is being released on December 3rd, 2007, and is highly anticipated
by Nintendo fans. It utilizes features from the Wii, courses change based on the time and date, and the ability to have up
to four ways to control your character.
This legendary addition to the Super Smash Bros. universe includes new items, like assist
trophys, which summon various Nintendo characters, much similar to the pokeball, and the smash ball, which allows the character
who uses it to preform a super-powerful attack, like Mario filling the screen with fireballs, or Samus firing a giant energy-shot,
only to lose her power-suit and transform into Zero Samus.
There is also an addition of third-party characters. As of now, Solid Snake from Metal Gear is
the only third-party character in Brawl, but fans are hoping for Sonic the Hedgehog, Megaman, and certain characters from
the Final Fantasy series, as well as some others.
There are multiple ways of playing the game, also. As stated by Masahiro Sakurai on the official Super
Smash Bros. Melee website- Smash Bros. DOJO;
"The Nintendo Wii really is a versatile piece of hardware.
I mean, when it comes to controllers, there
are pretty much four different types.
I guess I have no choice but implement them all!
There’s no need to be confused about what does what—just choose the play style you prefer!
I suppose I would recommend the Nintendo GameCube controller, though. I like the feel of that powerful rumble.
Still, try out the other controls—they definitely give you a fresh experience.
Hmm? How do you do smashes and dashes with just the Wii Remote?
If I get the chance to tell you, I will."
Overall, if you want a good sucessor to an awesome fighting game, choose Super Smash Bros. Brawl!
