SSBB: Target Smash and Videos

Wednesday, October 24th, 2007

Today the DOJO was updated with information on target practice. That’s right, target practices returns once again to the Super Smash Bros. franchise, but now it’s bigger and better than ever. You still have to break 10 targets in a set amount of time, but now speed runners get a new helping of speed running goodness. The mini game has five stages, and five levels of difficulty, making a total of 25 possible ways to play. The stages also take place outside, unlike in previous games of the franchise.

Sakurai also state something that “appears to sound like” a reverse double negative; “There is another announcement I’d like make simultaneously.” What’s his announcement? Willie says that these three minute speech runs can be recorded, and the recording can be sent through Nintendo’s 24 connect service. Personally I believe that that should’ve been the title of the entry, rather than “target smash”.

Tony Hawk Balance Board Game?

Tony Hawk Wii Board

It appears that Tony Hawk maybe considering a Tony Hawk title of the Wii that will utilize the Wii Balance Board. It’s kind of hard to guess how the controls would work, but if a solid control scheme is made, they could definitely make a great and unique game; the game would be unique enough to sell quite a few units, simply because there is nothing like it out their right now.

Eurogamer: Have you seen much of Wii Fit? Do you think a Tony Hawk game would work well with the Wii Fit board?

Tony Hawk: I’ve seen a little bit of it. I think it’s possible to incorporate the Wii Fit board into one of our games, but it would change the control scheme dramatically and we’d have to figure out how to make that work. So I don’t know yet.
