The new Super Smash Bros. Brawl trailer
by Savant
Here it is, something I know that a lot of you out there have been waiting for has finally found its way to being posted on the internet. The new trailer features the new characters and a heaping helping of fresh gameplay. The only gripe I have about this trailer is the lack of the over-the-top "ultra moves" that were shown in the first trailer (such as Mario's screen-clearing fireball.) We also now know that there will be some destructible elements involved on some of the stages which will add to the action. Take a gander for yourself and enjoy the new footage!
