Smash Bros Brawl Gets Huge Single Player Upgrade

Nintendo have announced that following on from the rather tame, although still fun, single player elements of the previous Smash Bros games they will be including a brand new, fully functional, single player mode in Brawl called The Subspace Emissary, which on the official site is described as “a robust side-scrolling action game“. The new mode will mostly likely take the place of the ‘find the targets’ mission mode of pervious games.

On the games website Masahiro Sakura, the games director, comments, “More than anything, Smash Bros. is a competitive action game. People have been kind enough to praise its multiplayer, but we’ve never been able to create a fully fleshed out single-player game. This time, though, we’ve managed to create a complete side-scrolling action game. It’s storyline isn’t overwrought—it’s hastened along by a bunch of quick movies.

He went on to say “the Adventure mode also emphasizes character development. You’ll see many famous characters persevering under the weight of their personal histories, shouldering their unique burdens… It’s really something you won’t see anywhere else. With so many wonderful characters appearing together, it’s like a dream action game. We’re putting tons of fighting spirit into making this game, so I hope you’re all looking forward to it.

Finally, to alleviate any stress it was revealed “Oh, and this is all included in the same Game Disc, so rest easy.
