When Super Smash Bros. Brawl launched after many painful delays back in March of 2008 (remember it like yesterday) fans eagerly ripped through the shrink-wrap to take part in what was to be a well-rounded, deep, online-enabled game.
And yes, the fans got what they asked for. But what great gifts Nintendo gave us can also be taken away in the blink of an eye, just like that.
And the Japanese video game maker is set to do just that. Beginning June 30, and lasting forever and for all eternity, the game, which was buffed by its online sharing capabilities, will have that facet removed.
A post on the official Smash Bros. Dojo website reads:
“As of June 30th, 2009, the current service that accepts user-generated snapshots, stage designs, and replay data will no longer be available. Please note, however, that we will continue to distribute such data after that date.”
Sad? Yes. Terrible and game-breaking? Absolutely not. And don’t worry because online multiplayer is not going anywhere.
