The week started off with a new challenger! Lucas has joined the Brawl and he has made his way from MOTHER 3. Masahiro makes a small mention towards Ness as well in this update. He will more than likely make it back. I made mention of Tuesdays update on the site already. Basically, we see video of Snake in action as well as some funny little dialog exchanges with Snake about some of his opponents. We were shown Snake's battle stage as well.
Wednesday brought new Assist Trophies of the 8-bit flavor. That's right, you're going to be able to summon characters like Excitebike and Lakitu. Excitebike will race around on the stage with other Excitebikers and Lakitu will throw his Spinies at people.
Thursday was a double update starting off with Fox's Final Smash. When he gets the Smash power up, the Landmaster lands in the stage. You can hover, roll and shoot the cannon at your opponents. Then the shielding and dodging techniques were shown off. Nothing about the shields have changed. Your shield will shrink after a period of time still and it can still get shattered which will make you lose consciousness. Same goes for dodging. You can do sidesteps, backward rolls and forwards rolls.
The week ends at the DOJO with a bang. The campaign mode in Brawl will have two player co-op. Two people can play together but from the way the update is worded, it looks like you can only do co-op on the same Wii. It basically plays out like Sonic 2. The camera will stay fixed on the main player while the second player has to keep up. If you get behind, you will automatically do a space jump to get back to the side of your partner. The main character will form teams based on the development in the story and whoever they meet will join their team. Each time you lose a life, you switch to a different character on your team.
Seems like every other week now at the DOJO is going to be filled with awesome. What did you think of all this week's news?
