Super Smash In February: Good or Bad?

Super Smash Brawl has been officially moved to February 10th, 2008. Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

Personally, I believe this is a good thing because in my mind, if a game takes longer to come out but it actually needed that time to fix things, it is completely worth it. I don’t want a game to come out a few months earlier just because that’s when they said it would come out. I want the game to come out when the creators feel that it is ready.

Additionally, who can really say that there’s not enough games out right now, or coming out in the next couple of months as it is. I know I definitely don’t have enough money to spend on these games but if you do, you probably have better stuff to do than think about when Super Smash is coming out.

Also, February is generally a month in which a small number of games usually comes out. In addition to spacing out the times of these awesome games coming out, it is filling in the some of the gaps during a usually gameless month.

Super Smash Bros Brawl Delayed

Super Smash Bros Melee

It appears that Nintendo has delayed the Japanese release of the upcoming Super Smash Bros Brawl. What was supposed to be released this year is now To Be Determined! Nintendo has said that the game won’t be released until sometime after January 28, 2008.

What kind of impact will this have on the other territory debuts of Super Smash Bros Brawl, no one exactly knows. It’s possible that Nintendo will push the American version to a release date of 2008 as well.

My guess is that Nintendo is focusing on the American version first and foremost. Nintendo may need the extra man power from the other versions to focus in on the American version. Considering that Super Smash Bros Brawl took off in the States and is what convinced people to buy a Gamecube, Nintendo needs Super Smash Bros Brawl in its Holiday 07 lineup.

But as of right now everything is up in the air.

Sonic in Super Smash Bros Brawl

It’s about time Sonic the Hedgehog receives a decent game! Ever since the demise of the Dreamcast is seems like his games are on the utter-crap rictor scale. Thankfully Nintendo is coming in to save the day and is bringing Sonic the Hedgehog into Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Let the fanboy celebration begin!

From the looks of the new SSBB trailer, Sonic is going to be a kick-ass character as he was always meant to be!

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Nintendo has released new screenshots to the latest Super Smash Bros. game for the Wii! Nintendo has come out to say that the game and even Super Mario Galaxy are being released in 2007 and not 2008 as previously thought. This push to get as many Nintendo titles out onto the market in 2007 could be Nintendo’s way to compete with the onslaught that is Halo 3.
