After months upon months of one delay after another, Nintendo has finally shipped Super Smash Bros. Brawl for Nintendo Wii to stores. There surely must be many gaping smiles over at Nintendo headquarters this morning.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl not only marks the long-awaited debut of the popular fighting series on Wii, but also an answer to critics who persistently claim Nintendo’s biggest weakness is a lack of “A” quality titles.
Wii’s strong sales (you still can’t easily fine one in a store) point towards gang-buster sales for Super Smash Bros. Brawl. We fully expect it to be on the best sellers list for two to three weeks at minimum.
“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.”
So break out $50 bucks, grab a buddy online, and pick up either your Wii Remote alone, Wii Remote with Nunchuk, Classic Controller or Nintendo GameCube controller, because all of them are available as playable control schemes. Super Smash Bros. Brawl has finally arrived and is more than worth the wait.
