Site launches with an impressive list of music talent; daily updates promised.
The countdown is over. The Smash Bros. Dojo has finally relaunched and is promising daily weekday updates from this point forward. There aren't any new character announcements or videos to accompany the reopening, but there is an insight into the game's music team. Its very large, star-studded music team. Before getting to that, though, here's a rundown of what the blog-structured site has updated with.
The first blog post shows players how to play the game. Anyone who has been rapidly hitting F5 at the site should already know the basics, but a few screenshots demonstrating the actions show parts of what appears to be a previously unseen stage.
Second is the introduction of the basic stage, seen in both trailers released for the game thus far, which are also available on Smash Bros. website. Battlefield has three simple platforms that don't move, but the background can change between day, evening night and dawn time periods.
The most exciting update, however, comes in the form of a list of game musicians and composers who will be contributing to the game's soundtrack. A whopping 36 of Japan's most talented music men, including those from Nintendo, Konami, grasshopper, GAME ARTS, HAL Lab and more are on the list, which also includes Yasunori Mitsuda (formerly of Square) who worked on games like Chrono Trigger and Xenogears, Tomoko Sasaki from NiGHTS and way too many other talented people to list here. Just look at the list and you'll be impressed.
It's important to note that the list of games these composers worked on does not necessarily mean we'll see characters from those games or game series in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Then again, if this many people from all of these different game companies have their hand in Brawl's development, maybe that's a sign of some sort?
NWR will have more information on Super Smash Bros. Brawl later this week. Stay tuned!
