After a lengthy wait (with many a thought of storming Nintendo Australia's headquarters to demand answers), The Big N of Oz has finally given up a solid release date for Super Smash Bros. Brawl. In just over a month we'll be slogging it out, both on and offline, with an announced launch date of June 26 for all things Smashy
Super Smash Bros. Brawl is a game play experience where characters from around the Nintendo universe meet up in Nintendo locales to battle it out. Choose from a number of iconic and new characters including Mario, everyoneís favourite plumber; Meta Knight, the sword-wielding nemesis of Kirby; Pit, the angelic archer from Kid Icarusô; Zero Suit Samus, the powerful Metroidģ series heroine; Sonic the Hedgehog from SEGAģ, and Solid Snake the solider from Konamiís Metal Gear series, among a host of others.
Jump and brawl your way through the Nintendo themed stages; pit up to four players against one another in a brawl to see who is the last one standing. Thanks to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection you can brawl with friends or strangers, share photos, swap replays, team up for challenging mini-games, and send custom made stages or screenshots to friends.
This news comes after we've spent plenty of time with the US version thinking all hope was lost. In celebration, stay tuned for a lengthy preview outlining all the features you can look forward to in one of Nintendo's most celebrated titles.
