Smash Bros Brawl’s Japanese Instruction Booklet hits the Internet?

Recommended Videos

Well, we had to expect that this to would happen. Super Smash Bros Brawl, now set for release in Japan on Jan. 31st, has suffered it’s first leak of physical evidence of proving it’s actual, factual existence. Super Smash Bros Brawl is real. It’s not like Big Foot or El Chubacabra. It’s real and it’s out there and some one has it, or it least they have it’s instruction booklet. The proof is here in these scans, currently posted on Korean gaming site Ruliweb.com. 

Notably missing from these pages is the profile of one of the series most popular veterans, the one and only Captain Falcon. If these scans are legit, this may be confirmation that Captain Falcon will not be in the game’s starting line up, and potentially not in the game at all. However, the recently announced new comer to the series, Olimar, is also missing a profile page. What does it all mean? Like so much of the Brawl info that has come from sources other than Nintendo, are these scans not to be trusted? I leave it to you Internet Matlocks to figure it out. 

Fake or not, these scans aren’t likely to be floating around for long. After they catch wind of them, Nintendo of Japan is sure to have them ripped down from the internet faster than you can say “Falcon Punch!”

Thanks to Jeromy for the heads up.
