A thread on SmashBoards indicates that the Japanese version of Nintendo's highly anticipated and oft-delayed Wii game Super Smash Bros. Brawl is finished, and is being manufactured for distribution. The thread features an image of the Japanese version's box, including the text 'Now printing'. This has been taken as an indication that the game has been finalised and should be released within a month. What this means for the timing of the localised release is unknown, though it is promising.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl is the third in an unconventional fighting game series for up to four players. It features at least 23 characters from a variety of franchises, including Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid, Sonic, Kirby, Fox from Star Fox and Samus from the Metroid series. It will be the first in the series to feature Wi-Fi support, meaning it's capable of online play.
