  • Super Smash Bros Brawl is packed with a whole host of new features including new characters, a combat arena editor, multiple battle modes, a single player storyline and the ability to take battles online.

  • Using a combination of the two attack buttons and the control stick, players can grab, attack and produce 'smash' attacks

  • The Stage Builder feature allows users to create their own environments.

  • All maps can be shared with friends via a memory pack, or submitted to Nintendo for the chance to be chosen as 'stage of the day' where it is sent to all other players in the Wi-Fi network.

  • Super Smash Bros. Brawl offers single players a scrolling adventure mode called The Subspace Emissary.

  • Coins built up during play can now be bet on matches. Players are also given the ability to share photos and replays and team up for enjoyable mini-games.

  • Notable new power-ups include Superspicy Curry, which allows the characters to breathe fire, the Gooey Bomb — a passable bomb that sticks to terrain and opponents — and Smoke Balls, balls of smoke that block a competitor’s view.

  • The introduction of Wi-Fi combat means friends can be challenged online either in cooperative teams, or alone as individual fighters.
