From the preview by Nintendo Wii Fanboy's JC Fletcher:
"After reporting on the game about five hundred million times, and posting other people's impressions, I finally got a chance to play the Japanese version of Super Smash Bros. Brawl at an after-hours convention associate game tournament. I had to do something special for Wii Fanboy's gameplay impressions, right? So I went big. Big group, and big screen. Super Smash Bros. Brawl is exciting. For every single second it's being played. It ratchets up the adrenaline in Melee to an insane degree. There is always unexpected stuff happening. The tournament was set up using Brawl's tournament mode, which allowed everyone to pick their character and enter their name and let the game take care of the rest. Gamecube controllers were set up for everyone, for consistency."
