After a day of wearing out our F5 key, the Super Smash Bros. Brawl
webpage has finally
made its promised update
. Unfortunately, we have yet to find any huge megaton announcements. In fact, some of the content is a little too
non-megaton-- like an explanation of the (unchanged) basic rules of Smash Bros.
There is neat stuff to be found, though, most obviously in the form of a few screenshots that, while they still don't show any new or new-to-Brawl
do show off a day/night cycle.
Also, the list of composers
contributing to the game is massive
-- a total who's-who of Japanese game music. Some of the composers, we're sure, are only credited for having created the music from Smash
characters' original games. But Jun Fukuda and Masafumi Takada from Grasshopper Manufacture
are on the list, and that is really exciting.
The website promises updates every weekday, so don't let the somewhat underwhelming first day put you off. Keep checking the site for the inevitable character announcements and control scheme explanations!
