Battling for the Smash Ball

Battling for the Smash Ball

The smash ball in Super Smash Bros Brawl is likely the most desirable item in the game. Collecting it is not simply a case of walking into it, it will take a pummeling before finally it breaks for the lucky recipient.

Once a brawler gets the smash ball, he or she enters standby mode and starts glowing. Hitting the B button alone will unleash the final smash move.


I think there's a new galaxy in here.

Nemo?..... Nemo?

Can y'all handle THIS?

I didn't sign up for this.

This is MY house!

One to beam up.

I like that they're emphasizing strategy more in this game. Senseless button mashing is fun, but making split-second decisions is better.


Disappointed Fan said:

This is just getting ridiculous, of course you're going to have to fight for it, give a friggin update already. Why is Nintendo being so cheap?


RisingPhoenix said:

This is interesting. Finally something mildly good. I was wondering why, in a video, Meta-Knight lost his smash in a crazy whirlwind while fighting Bowser. Thursday and Friday will probably suck.

Just think, some of us should be brawling by now, and I think sakurai is running out of ideas to post.

Set phazers to SMASH.


Aeth said:

Nothing really special today. We already know about hitting the Smash Ball several times and it doesn't activate until you want it to. Though getting a Final Smash when you recover at certain conditions is new. Also the new song is OK, and least it helped time pass by when I was reading about the already known smash ball info.

Cool! But I already knew all of this. Oh well. Nice pictures though.


Epsilon said:

Wow, even more meh than yesterday. At least yesterday's was new in that Mew drops CDs now.


pichu fan said:

Why could they just not tell us this when they had first showed the smash ball.


Charlie said:

Nice, I like the last pic. This is good, because otherwise it would be way too easy to do a final smash.


BrothaZ said:

Where's the music update?


#1 Peach Fan said:

We already knew this but it is nice to see more pictures.


Gamer Prodigy said:

That isn't even an update? Not a complaint, because I want some surprises as I've said before, but why even bother to put it there? That's almost like Damn vultures, you already know this but shove it down your throat so you can shut up! Maybe we could complain less about bad updates and they wouldn't give garbage like this, and maybe more big ones every couple weeks.

That mercy smash move SUCKS.

Man, the Smash ORB (it should have been called) is going to rock.


Zendalf said:

Oh yeah. Beam me up Scottie (I've never seen one episode of Star Trek in my entire life!).

You can turn off the mercy smash move.
