If you were wondering how they could make the upcoming Smash Bros. Brawl
even better than its predecessors, the official Dojo site has some great news for Nintendo fans. Via Game|Life
comes the news that Brawl
will feature a fully-fleshed out single-player sidescrolling campaign. Called 'The Subspace Emissary', it appears to explore the stories of the individual characters
and their interactions with each other. "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 ... 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."
While obviously folks like Link and Mario will feature heavily, it's worth pointing out that this will be the first time in more than 15 years that Kid Icarus'
Pit will get any sort of 'plot development' in a videogame.
