Managing to get it just under the holiday wire, especially for you last-minute shoppers, Nintendo announced today that they are releasing the much anticipated (by us at Joystiq especially) Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Wii on December 3rd. If you've got a Wii fan or a Wii of your that needs some Smash lovin', set your calendars accordingly.

Given the proximity to the end of the year and Chrismakwanzika, pre-ordering this might not be a bad idea if you need to assure that it'll make it into your hot little hands. We're looking forward to some face-off battles here in the office.
