Super Smash Bros. Brawl delayed until March 9th


Super Smash Bros. Brawl just wasn't done breaking hearts. After the crushing disappointment of having our $19.98 preorders canceled, Nintendo's latest news is a kick while we're down. And not a fun in-game kick, from Yoshi or something. The regular kind.

The rumors were true. Nintendo of America has announced that Brawl is delayed until March 9th. The official reason? "Development is taking slightly longer than expected." We're just going to assume that the real reason is that Nintendo's taking the time to add (character you want). The Japanese release has been delayed, as well, until the 31st of this month. Masahiro Sakurai has apologized for the delay on the Dojo site.

For those of you who are counting, this is the second delay for this game. Once upon a time, we thought we were going to be Brawling online as soon as December 3rd. It's now ... considerably later than that, is what it is.
