Only 3 minutes?...But Wii has 512mb memory...couldn't they allow a little more recording time? (like monkey ball - you could record untill your whole memory stick was full)

That all sounds great, sending out replays should be pretty cool. It seems to have the kind of tweaks you would expect. Another bit of the game improved methinks.

I am sure 3 mins is adequate unless you are severely crap at Target Test.

Maybe that's 3 minutes of the same match? I dunno...

Fingers crossed for that.

I'm sure you can replay the whole match, but you can probably only record & save some section of it.

It's really good though, because unlike taking snap-shots with the pause screen, you can just watch the replay at the end of the match, right? & then edit it to how you wish.

About the target-breaking mode.... 5 levels? Do you think that's per character, like last games??

If it's the same 5 levels for every character:

LAME

If it's 5 different levels for EACh character.

ORSIM

I'm guessing there's something you unlock when you beat 5 levels with every character :3

From the looks of things it'll probably be 5 different themed environments (like those screens), but different formats like Melee/Original

Hopefully, though it'd still be better if it were completely different for each character, not just format wise (whatever you mean by that:rollSmilie.

Oh wait, I get ya'. But I still stand by what I said...

Great to see this back.

mmmmm... recording...

Look at the last pic. It has a tab for the SD Card, which can hold up to 2 gigs of data. This means that you can save a lot of replay files.

Also the replays will probably be bone data and the other stuff will be loaded in when the replay file is accessed. This means that a replay file could be less than a 1MB.

Yeah we know that replays are quite small and that the Wii has relatively lot of memory (which is also expandable)...but still in the description it says 3 minutes of recording...which is ambiguous..hopefully its per match...

I hope you can play the replays in camera mode to make some cool movies.

I am quite sure it is per match.

I like the fact that you can send it to your friends... You can humiliate the mess out of someone and send it to all your friends...
