The Smash DOJO!! recap: Wario-Man is here to save the day


2:23 AM on 11.30.2007



Monday began with a very detailed look at the controls for Brawl. This is the first time in the Smash games where you'll actually be able to configure which button does what move on all forms of the controller options. It's also revealed that there will be some motion sensing in the game with the Wiimote. This is optional and if you use the motion sensing option, you will be able to perform a Smash attack in the direction you shake the Wiimote (this is only for the Wiimote AND Nunchuk configuration). Another awesome and neat idea that Sakurai added to the control functions is that you can actually save your controller configuration on the Wiimote itself. So if you're going to a buddies house and you don't want to mess with the control settings, you just take your Wiimote with the saved profile on it and that's that.

Tuesday was pretty big for music fans. Hirokazu Tanaka, the man who has been with Nintendo since the Game & Watch days, is on the Brawl team working on some of the music for the game. Take a listen to the remake of the original Donkey Kong theme. It was a double update Tuesday in which they also talked about Widescreen support. This post has become long enough so I'll just say that they've made choosing which ratio that works best for what T.V. very simple.

Wednesday brought Wario's Final Smash called Wario-Man. Anyone who's played the Wario Ware games knows exactly what this is. While he's Wario-Man, most attacks won't hurt him and all of his regular moves are powered up. Thursday revealed the return of Events. You battle through predetermined situations and goals. Some of the matches will be Mario having to fight against Bowser and King Dedede, knocking off Kirby out of the stage before he gets on the Battleship Halberd, fighting a dark version of yourself to a whole bunch of other modes. Today's update showed us that some of the old stages are coming back like Hyrule Temple -- one of the best stages in Melee. As an added bonus, there's even the Zelda II/this stage's music on this update too.

What did you think of this week's updates? Seeing Wario-Man easily made my week for the Dojo news.
