Virtual Console demos in Brawl

Virtual Console demos in Brawl

Super Smash Bros Brawl will be delving into the past of certain brawlers, with trial versions of their early games available to play. Sakurai is boldly calling this feature Masterpieces. I guess it's no coincidence that full versions of these are available to buy on the Virtual Console. Big N, you clever devils.

You don't need to be online to play these game trials, so they must be included on the disc. Many of the games will have really tight time limits, some include save data.


Ahh, where it all started.


Where's Nana?


Ok, you can put it away now.


Can you fly, Bobby?


Confession, I've never played a Kirby game ;_;


Hai, can you open this for me plz?


Do a barrel roll!


Let's gooo, time's a wastin'.


Now you're playing with power.


You can do better than that, Sammy.

lol at 4th caption. Anyways Nintendo was pretty smart to try and make us buy virtual console games by playing Brawl.

A cool update depending on whether there will be a lot of games or not. I'm hoping they don't just use games already on the Wii shop channel.

Man, no character this week unless you count the 3 that were accidentally released. I hope we get a character next week though.

I can play some virtual console games without Wii points but don't see what it has to do with brawl.

You want proof you can't beat the classic games? Well here you have it, trials of them are being featured in Brawl under the prestige title of "Masterpieces"! I've looked through the Virtual Console List and found that the only characters (that we have seen so far) games North America doesn't have is MOTHER, main Pokemon Games (Though it has Pokemon Snap), WarioWare (Though has games featuring Wario), Fire Emblem, Metal Gear (though that's obvious), Pikmin, Devil World (though it was said it was never released outside of Japan), Animal Crossing, Nintendogs, Stafy, and Waluigi. But strange enough, we have Sin & Punishment, don't ask me.

Loved caption 4. Very sneaky advertising technique Nintendo but what the hey. Woo free demo games! Goes to show that this is more than just one game.

If you check out Japan's Dojo site you would see they also added a Fire Emblem game and Mother 2.

Aeth said:

I'm looking through the Japanese version of the site and found that Brawl also has trials for MOTHER 2 (though it's called EarthBound in the United States) and the first Fire Emblem. Though since we don't have those two games for our Virtual Console, will they remove those trials or keep them in and release those games for the United States Virtual Console?

Good idea. But, isn't it an even better idea to demo the game at the Shop Channel before you buy it? You wouldn't want to put down a few hundred points for a game you think is horrible after the first five minutes of play. They don't already do that, do they?

Cool but I'm going to be buying these games.

I bet that they make it so you can unlock characters, stickers, and trophies by beating these.
