Super Smash Bros. Brawl is the third installment in the Super Smash Bros. series of crossover fighting games, developed by an ad hoc development team consisting of Sora, Game Arts and staff from other developers and published by Nintendo for the Wii video game console. Brawl was announced at a pre-E3 2005 press conference by Nintendo president and Chief Executive Officer Satoru Iwata. Masahiro Sakurai, director of the previous two games in the series, assumed the role of director for the third installment at the request of Iwata. Game development began in October 2005 with a creative team that included members from several Nintendo and third party development teams. After delays due to development problems, the game was finally released on January 31, 2008 in Japan, March 9, 2008 in North America, June 26, 2008 in Australia and June 27, 2008 in Europe. Twenty-seven months after its original Japanese release, the game will be released in Korea, on April 29, 2010.
Stability without Unlimited JIT cache
The game may crash during classic mode, during battles vs. a 10-man team. This can be fixed enabling Unlimited JIT Cache in older revisions (newer revisions has a built-in patch to this issue).

Corrupt Results Display
Some ISOs avaiable on torrents and file hosters is a DVD5 (4,7 GB) scrubbed version of the original DVD9 (8,5 GB) release. In these pirated ISOs most of the videos are removed, resulting in black screens or the same video being repeated all the time when playing the Subspace Emissary. Following these videos, always the same character select screen may appear, however the names represent the characters for the next level. The only way of fixing this is making your own *legal* backup of retail game (Dual Layer Disc, 8,5 GB).
As the game supports both the Gamecube and Wiimote controller, you may find yourself unwillingly controlling both player 1 and 2 at the same time. Disable either the GC Pad plug-in player 1 or Wiimote to solve this.
