Smash Bros. Brawl Broadcasts Wi-Fi Matches, Encourages Viewers to Gamble

The latest mode unveiled for the unbelievably feature-packed Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii) will allow gamers to observe online matches and gamble away their hard-earned coins by placing bets on who they think will win.

"It feels like there's a continuous broadcast of matches on your television," game director Masahiro Sakurai wrote on the game's official site. "Even if you don't play, you can enjoy the battles of other characters!" nope

To be a part of what we here at the Shack are calling Smash Bros. TV, players only need to enable the "Allow Spectators" selection in the options menu.

As previously reported, other additions to the latest entry in Nintendo's mascot fighting series include video replays, user-created screenshots, and a level editor, the creations of which can all be shared online. Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. Brawl arrives in North America on February 10.
