Yesterday, we reported on a leak of possible new DLC for Smash Bros. This leak included everything from new costumes, to new characters, to new levels. We’re happy to report that not only is the DLC official, but it’s now available. The new content was revealed as part of Nintendo’s live Smash Bros stream this morning. Basically Smash Bros players can now get 7 new Mii Fighter Costumes (including Jacky and Akira from Virtua Fighter), a classic Smash Bros stage, and 3 new characters, including Ryu from Street Fighter. There is even a free Miiverse Plaza stage available. Click below to see the prices. The stream also revealed that several new amiibo will be released this fall, including R.O.B, Mr. Game and Watch, and Falco. [Read the rest of this entry…]
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. [Read the rest of this entry…]

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 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.
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.
