Multiplayer mayhem being the core experience of any Super Smash Bros. game, rumor mills have churned the possibility of online play for the Wi-Fi-equipped Wii version of the game to a powder-fine millet. The rumor, however, can now be put to rest, as the game's official Web site, Super Smash Bros. Dojo, has laid out plans for online fisticuffs in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

When the game releases for the Wii on December 3, players will be able to jump into global or friend-only matches. Players will be able to check the status of those in their Wii friend network, and then jump into a match under a variety of modes. The game will apparently not feature any kind of voice chat; instead, four pre-entered taunts can be issued using the D pad. While waiting for other players to ready up, players will be able to practice their moves on sandbag.

"With Anyone" matches will differ slightly from "With Friends" battles. For these, players will engage in anonymous online play, and the limited chat options will be disabled. SSB Dojo also noted that stat-tracking will be disabled for these matches, implying that records will be kept for friend-only brawls. The site also apologetically notes that local matches will perform far better than long-distance melees, which can take place between fighters in, for instance, the US and Japan.

I am the best with roy. VERY true. I can`t wait to go online and verse people that think there good but really suck. I hope there`s online team play because me and my bro who is the best with marth will totally destroy you guys. Its`s not possible for anyone to beat us, It can`t be done. Some people already learned that the hard way. I`ve been playing melee for seven years. Me and my bro never lost a battle. I hate when someone else thinks there the best with roy, they are lying so bad. I can`t wait to play brawl. Oh and that wanna be smashbrochamp94 WILL LOSE!!!!!

I hope they have records for wins and loses. I'll have so many wins and no loses. I also hope they hava multiplayer online battles so me and my brother could team up, and own everyone all day. When the two best players in the world are on a team which is of course, me and my brother, we'll never be defeated, we'll just kill everybody who versus us. It's going to be so easy to beat you guy's. You guy's probably won't go online anymore, because you're too scared. I can't wait for Brawl to come out, I've been playing Melee everyday killing the computer on level 9, because I'm so excited, but I hope in Brawl they have at least level 10 computer, I mean come on level 9 is easy, I kill them without losing a life.

Why would anyone want to be that stupid sonic guy? They could have been adding Marth and Roy. Sonic is just going to be a waste of time to unlock, and you all know it. Ike sounds good but if he dosen't have a counter, then he definitley won't be as good as Marth and Roy. Oh, and why did they put ice climbers in here, they suck. But Sonic he's going to be the worst character, definitley. Oh well, anyone who is going to be sonic is gonna get owned online.

I'm the best with Marth, that's a fact. I'm perfect with his counter and combos. It's true. I'm the best at Super Smash Brothers Melee and Brawl. It's true, it's true, it's true, it's true, it's very true.

I cant wait to destroy you amateurs online. I'm the best at Melee with Marth, IT'S TRUE. As soon as I get brawl I'm going to unlock Marth, then I'll go online and own you guys. I'm the best with Marth. I've been playing Melee seven long years, and the ONLY character I be is Marth. Oh, let me give you a little advice don't get the hammar when I'm Marth, or when you're versing my brother, when he's Roy. We'll just counter it and you'll either die right after or we'll land combos on you. Oh, don't bother getting Brawl if you've never played Melee, I'll just totally destroy you online. It's true. My brother and I are the best at Melee, that's a FACT, IT'S TRUE. You guy's are probably too scared now to get Brawl now. Well I had to tell the world the truth. Here's my wii number, but take it only if you could beat the level 9 computer thousands and thousands and thousands of times without losing. Me and my bro never lost a battle in about 6 years. 8595-9229-9799-3134. You guy's WILL get OWNED by me and my brother. I can't wait. Oh, and one more thing Sonic SUCKS. Marth and Roy rule.

I was finally waiting for online play and here it is. I'm glad they have a little way to communicate. The D Pad up down left and right thing were a good idea. I don't think I'll ever get bored of this game.

EHHHHH, sry nintendo not having the stat track for random games is a bad move, if they want to build a fanatical base then they need to include the stat track,

when Super smash bros. brawl releases,there's no way that x360 or PS3 will surpass wii.

Having voice chat would be nice but it's not exactly a necessity with this game. With this game all it would be mostly used for is trash talking which is great against friends, but can get really annoying with strangers. Do you guys really want to hear me talking trash when I mop the floor with all of you online? Ya the online features aren't as good as xbox live but xbox live doesn't have this game. It's freaking online Smash Bros! If you are complaining then you are just dumb.

Praise the lord lord my prayers has been answered! Only problem with online chat is getting insulted by sore losers or by cocky players who think there above you.

I'm glad it's online and all, but that Play Anyone mode looks like a joke. I'm sure it's fun, but you can't even see the other people's SCREEN NAMES! You may as well be fighting really hard bots.

This'll be sooooo much fun. After this game comes out, i think i'll be playing it for years.

Yay, lets give them so much credit for doing something everybody else has been doing since day one. At least they're attempting to catch up with online. At least they didn't kill off a piece of this game by not putting online play in it.

Man when I saw this on the Smash Dojo site I was instantly filled with an absolute adrenaline rush of excitement. I can see why Nintendo didn't wanna add any chat but this is gonna be such an awesome game I can't describe it.
