Nintendo Wii Media | Smash Update: Coin Launcher

By Jorge Ba-oh 27.12.2007 6

Today's update on the Super Smash Bros. Brawl update reveals the ability to launch coins in a fun new mini-game to earn trophies!

In the last game, you dropped the coins you collected into a prize-dispensing machine for a chance to win trophies. That was fine and all, but I got to thinking that there wasn't really any strategy involved.

So this time, I dropped the crane game. Instead, you'll be earning your trophies in THIS kind of game!

I dub this the Coin Launcher!

I'm gonna have you play every inch of this game!

That option on the right is the entrance to the Coin Launcher.

That's the launcher at the bottom.

Tilt left and right to change the angle of the launcher and press the button to roll coins out. Basically, the coins themselves are your bullets.

Fire, fire, fire, fire. FIRE!

And you got it!

The trophies move, so shoot, shoot, shoot them before they get away. If you land a few shots on a trophy, it will be yours.

An enemy formation has appeared!

When you defeat formations of smaller enemies, you earn stickers and bonuses. When your green gauge fills up, it becomes possible to shoot coins rapid-fire for a short time.

A missile appeared!

Shoot the missiles down. If a missile strikes, your coin count will decrease!


Press the Cancel Button to quit. The trophies and stickers you got this time will be displayed.

The green ones are trophies. The red ones are stickers.

The more you play the other modes, the more coins you'll earn for the Coin Launcher. You can even earn them in Spectator mode.

If you want even more coins, your best bet is to invite some friends over to play. The more people you play with, the more coins you'll earn.

Awesome Smilie

A great mini game to waste excess coins.

This looks great, much better conceived than the last games version. It's cool that you can play in Spectator Mode, that's great addition. I like the characters keeping score, I hope those animate if only a little.

Those clouds are not even scrolling parallax!, but I guess Wii owners don't need fancy graphics from the late 80s lol.

This is much better then the last game had to offer and it'll give us something to do as well if we are bored, I praise whoever thought of this... its so....unique i can't wait to play it

Melee's trophy machine made it far too easy to get tons of the Trophies, especially for more experienced players who will easily get all those coins. This looks like a fun little mini game that you can play even after you've gotten all the trophies.

If that's possible. Smilie

And now, I shall make my grand imitation of a GameFAQs board member: *AHEM*
