Pre E3 Speculation: Transformers Brawler, Plus Ryu and Roy coming to Smash Brothers?


As you know, next week is E3, the wonderful time of the year where we get hyped up for games that we won’t see for at least another 4 months. We can only guess what surprises that Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony, along with several major publishers and developers will have in store for gamers this year. However, today sees a couple of huge potential leaks: One, being a cel-shaded Transformers brawler and the other being new DLC for Smash Brothers. Unless and until they are confirmed at E3, these two rumors should only be taken as little more than speculation, even if we have screenshots.

Powet Presents something that’s not very standard fare for the site (or me, for that matter), but is close enough to geek topics near and dear to our hearts.

Happy birthday, Dreamcast!

Gaming Archaeology: R.O.B.

Powet Presents a repost of one of our most popular videos… A tribute to R.O.B. on the NES. Since his inclusion in Super Smash Bros Brawl, a lot of people have been looking for more information.

He’s become an increasingly popular cameo in first-party Nintendo games, but what the Hell is R.O.B.? How does it work? Have you ever played Gyromite without cheating?

Brawl In Madison: Smash Bros At Midnight

brawling.jpgAside from being one of the Powet Editors here, I’m also a sometime journalist, keeping tabs on local games news for the Madison, WI free newspaper The Isthmus and its web counterpart The Daily Page.

This past weekend I wrote about the Smash Bros midnight release and the turnout of local gamers, and thought you Powet readers might be interested.

Super Smash Brothers Brawl Intro, Manual

Be aware that both the following movie and link contain unannounced characters returning to Brawl.

North America has to wait for March 9 to get a mouthful of Brawls, but the release is mere moments away in Japan. And so the intro movie from their version of Brawl has floated on to the web.

Also, Kotaku has scans of several pages of the manual which you can see here.

Super Smash Brothers Brawl Pushed to March 9

The latest update from the Smash Bros creator Masahiro Sakurai is quite unpleasant.

Due to delays in the completion of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, we’ve had to change the release date of the game to Sunday, March 9th.

I deeply apologize to the people who have looked forward to playing the game for so long and ask that you hold on just a little longer. Thank you for your patience.

Ok, so the update was pleasant, its just the news thats bad. Put a new mark on your calendars kids. You’ve got an extra month to collect your Mario Galaxy stars, practice Rock Band drumming, and find Drake’s Fortune.

Sonic Finally Confirmed For Brawl

Sonic The Hedgehog has been the most wanted character not just for Super Smash Bros Brawl, but even going back to Super Smash Bros Melee. The second Sega became a 3rd party publisher for Nintendo, people knew it was possible. And soon Sega is publishing Sonic and Mario at the Olympics, which is fine for a fair competition. But the one wanted is to see Sonic fight Nintendo classic characters hand to hand, thus bringing to life the console wars from generations ago.

And now its confirmed

On the not-so-bright side, the Japanese date for the game has been revealed as January 24, with the US release now stating “TBD” instead the previously announced December 3rd. A delay would be uncomfortably, but not unexpected. Nintendo has a consistent track record of piling on delays to get the game RIGHT. At least we’ll have The Olympics this year.

Thanks Robbie!
