While American and Japanese gamers have been playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl for several months now, Australian gamers have been patiently waiting for news of a local release date. The waiting will soon be over, however, with Nintendo Australia today confirming that SSBB will be coming down under on June 26.
Similar to Mario Kart Wii, SSBB features a plethora of control schemes ranging from a Wii Remote and Nunchuk combination to the GameCube controller. Amongst crowd favourites like Mario and Link, the lineup of fighters has been expanded and now includes third-party characters like Metal Gear Solid's Solid Snake and Mario's old nemesis, Sonic the Hedgehog. On top of that, you can now go online and challenge players from around the world to fights and see how you size up against them.
Super Smash Brothers Brawl will retail for A$99.95. For more information, check out our extensive launch centre for the game.
