Nintendo Wii Media | Smash Update: Norfair Engulfs Brawl

By Jorge Ba-oh 09.11.2007 10

It's Brawling time in today's Smash Bros. official update with the Metroid arena Norfair making its grand appearance on the list of new levels.

Norfair is the location in Metroid where the enemy boss Ridley was. There was a lot of lava, and it seemed like a rather hot area.

As you can imagine, the lava level will indeed rise and cover the platforms. It's dangerous to touch it.

That dangerous-to-the-touch lava comes flowing from a number of places, so be careful.

The tension rises. Yes.

When the lava wave appears, a single safe area will also appear. If you can get in, you'll be safe...but surely there will be quite a battle for that spot. Yet another bit of back and forth.

You can barely dodge the massive lava wave with a great jump, but it's a little difficult. Besides, you KNOW you want to win the battle for that safe area.

Be sure to stick with C3 for future updates...

The Capsule part looks like it'd be a unique element, but other than that, Meh.Smilie

Hmm maybe this is where we will see Samus join the subspace emmisary. and where she must take on Ridly as a boss...and where you can unlock him as a character?

A fail so epic, it may just be a win.

Ridly as a character... doubt it, probably as a assist trophy...



I was hoping for a more organic looking stage but oh well. Now that they have added some more Kirby characters, I am hoping for some new Metroid Characters. How about some assist trophies featuring the animal helpers from Super Metroid and Metroid Fusion? Or perhaps Dark Samus or a Space Pirate as a playable character?

It would be another falco like clone character... Like pikachu to pichu... Although a raichu instead would be nice... No hurting your self eighter(stupid pichu)Smilie



I like it! It gives a new meaning to the word strategy!! Smilie

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

AWW burn and death while the squirtle sits in the capsel thing all nice and safe.... man that suck for the trainer unless he got chuck norris like powers and jumped the whole lava wave...Smilie

I don't know what will happen with Pokemon Trainer on this stage. Maybe he has some type of hover craft for these levels. The background does look like it can be a stage on its own. To tell you the truth I'd rather fight on the platforms in the background since they look more Metroid.
