Super Smash Bros Brawl Video Review Roundup

You may have heard about a little game that got released on the Nintendo Wii yesterday. What was it called again? Oh yeah. SUPER SMASH BROS BRAWL! I picked up a copy myself and my initial impressions are that they’ve kept pretty much everything you’ve come to expect from Super Smash Bros and stepped it up a notch or three. The character count is bigger. The graphics are prettier. And you get to play as Solid mother-f*cking Snake!

Super Smash Bros. Brawl is probably the best Wii game to be released to date and it doesn’t even make use of the so-called gimmicky controls. You might even enjoy it more by playing on a GameCube or Classic Controller. In either case, the response has been overwhelmingly positive. You could say it’s the new best fighting games king. Check out these three video reviews for further evidence of our never-ending praise for this fantastic fighting game.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl – The Real Character Selection Screen

After making its way through the Internet these past couple of days, it seems that the previously leaked Super Smash Bros. Brawl character list is probably a fake, possibly shattering our dreams of playing as Bowser Jr., Midna, and Star Wolf.

Fear not, my fellow Smash Bros. enthusiasts, because a more legitimate source has now come up with the character selection screen shown above. Each character window is now in the usual rendered 3D, as opposed to some of the 2D cropped images that we saw in the previous leak. The Young Link picture, for example, didn’t fit in with the styling of the rest of the characters.

Some highlights from this new Super Smash Bros. Brawl character select screen include Marth, Captain Falcon, Ganondorf, Luigi, a new Young Link (from Wind Waker), Mr. Game and Watch, Ness, Jigglypuff, Lucario, and — get this — R.O.B. the Robot. As if driving a kart with R.O.B. wasn’t cool enough, you can now brawl with him too. There’s also mention of the possibility of Master Hand, though he’s probably a boss and not a selectable character.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl – Intro Video

This is the opening cinematic for the Japanese version of Super Smash Bros Brawl. Normally, a leaked video like this wouldn’t be all that exciting, but it does seem to reveal a character or two that we didn’t know about before. Or at least a character or two that have yet to be confirmed by Nintendo. How does this compare to the Super Smash Bros. Brawl final character selection screen that was leaked a short while back?
