19 Reasons to Buy a Wii: #5

The Nintendo Wii is about to launch on November 19, 2006. Between now and then, Game Freaks 365 is going to list 19 reasons each day for why you should buy a Wii.

#5 Super Smash Bros. Brawl – This is a game that doesn’t need an introduction. Super Smash Bros. speaks for itself. If this was a launch title, it would be the biggest reason to own a Wii for a lot of people. This is the ultimate fighting franchise with friends, there’s no doubt about it. Without Melee, the GameCube probably would have been collecting dust again right after we all beat Resident Evil 4.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl will use a more traditional control style than the Wiimote provides, according to the developer of the game. This is good news for those of us that don’t want to see something that works get tinkered with. Even though we knew it was coming, Brawl was a surprise announcement at E3 2006. The biggest surprise, however, was a PlayStation icon being featured in the game. Solid Snake is one of five new characters in the game, including: Pit (Kid Icarus), Zero Suit Samus (Metroid: Zero Mission), Metaknight (Kirby) and Wario.
