Late last night it was announced that the next installment in the Super Smash Brothers family will have the subtitle: Brawl. New characters range from Twilight Princess Link, suitless Samus, Pit (Kid Icarus), MetaKnight, Wario, and the strangest of all Metal Gear Solids Snake! It was revealed in a trailer that you will get to use Snakes infamous ‘box’ as a power. Wario will have a toxic fart attack too.
It was also mentioned that the title will only use the GameCube controller which I’m not too sure about. I get the fact that if it doesn’t use the Wii-Mote then that is why we didn’t see it on the 9th. But someone new to buying Nintendo consoles purchases the Wii, and doesn’t have the Cube controller then what do they do? I suppose that the ‘shell’ attachment could work, but…
Also in addition to the characters revealed, one of my past ideas became a reality. The other day in class (before the 9th) one of my friends asked about ‘the next Super Smash game’. I said that we didn’t know much other than Online play, and more characters. We began bouncing ideas off of each other. I suggested “Wouldn’t it be cool if instead of Pokeballs, you could unleash a giant Nintendog?”. Well if you check out the screens on IGN you’ll see that it’s in there.
If the game play is still there, then this could be huge!
(Now let’s pray for a Master Hand attachment glove)
