This morning, like everyday, I browsed the Internet and went to the official website of Super Smash Bros. Brawl hoping for a cool update so I could save the pictures to post them on GamerSyde. Some rumors had been circulating forever whether or not a WiFi mode would be added in this important brawler ; I had my answer and I propagate the good news ; SSBB will be multiplayer, either locally or on the Internet.
The first mode is called "With Friends" and allows you to play, well, with friends registered on your Nintendo Wii console. First you choose an icon that will represent you (either the head or the icon of a game character, etc.). Once the brawl has started, you can send little message to your opponents by using the stunt action. The messages must have been written beforehand. A maximum of four text commands can be input, as there are four arrows on the control pad.
The second mode, "With Anyone", allows you to play against perfect strangers. You will never know their names, and the stats won't be recorded. Masahiro Sakurai has specified that other modes could use the WiFi, but he won't tell us more right now. What a tease...
the arcade shadow dancer is also nice, built on the same gameplay foundations as arcade shinobi, but a bit weaker level design. i also love rolling thunder 1&2, which are also very similar (2 Hours ago)
i played a bit of shinobi and kunoichi on ps2, but they are really just shinobi in name. (2 Hours ago)
game gear shinobi is more like the arcade version than the mega drive ones. (2 Hours ago)
I'd love some kind of real Sega revival. (2 Hours ago)
I like a bunch of Shinobi games. Even the Game Gear had great Shinobi games. Also the PS2 Shinobi was too quickly forgotten. (2 Hours ago)
my fav Sega game is Shinobi (original arcade). I still play it now and then. I think they have other, more recognizable and iconic characters/brands, but for me those games don't hold up as well today (2 Hours ago)
Wasn't really bashing it anyway. I love a lot of Sega stuff, and I think Shenmue is okay. Maybe a bit overrated is all. (2 Hours ago)
