Nintendo announced today that Super Smash Brothers Brawl is now available for those five people who have been living under a rock for the last two months. I know Nintendo fans are very excited about the game and I'm going to try to pick up a copy at lunch today to see what the fuss is about.


At Long Last, Nintendo Proclaims: Let The Brawls Begin On Wii!

Action-Packed Wii Fighting Game Includes More Moves, More Levels, More
Characters-More Brawling!

REDMOND, Wash., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- When Mario(TM) appears in a new
game, people perk up. But when loads of characters from across the Nintendo
universe battle alongside such video game icons as Sonic The Hedgehog and
Solid Snake, people take charge! The March 9 launch of Super Smash Bros.(R)
Brawl quickens the pulse of even the most jaded veteran gamer. Featuring a
host of playable characters, special items, stages and music, Super Smash
Bros. Brawl is an encyclopedia of Nintendo's video game history, making it the
biggest and deepest brawl of them all.

This innovative fighting game, the first Super Smash Bros. game for Wii,
ups the ante with several exciting new modes and wireless features. By logging
onto Nintendo(R) 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, action-packed
battles that pit up to four players against one another in a brawl to see
who's the last one standing.
"The excitement around Super Smash Bros. Brawl is contagious," said Cammie
Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing.
"It's a delight to see how the creators have taken an already irresistible
series and made it even deeper and more fun for Wii. We're just as thrilled as
the fans are."
Online battles aren't the only wireless boost in this latest Super Smash
Bros. installment. With Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, players also have the
ability to share photos, swap replays, team up for challenging minigames 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(TM) alone, Wii Remote with Nunchuk(TM), Classic Controller or
Nintendo GameCube(TM) controller. All these options give players a virtually
endless amount of ways to play, a fact that makes Super Smash Bros. Brawl one
of the most anticipated games of 2008.
The previous installment in the series, Super Smash Bros.(R) Melee, was
the best-selling game of all time for Nintendo GameCube(TM) with 7.09 million
copies sold worldwide. For more information about Super Smash Bros. Brawl,

content their children can access. For more information about this and other
