E3: Smash Bros. Wii dated

December in US.

Nintendo has finally confirmed a solid date for Super Smash Bros. Brawl on Wii.

US boss Reggie Fils-Aime spilled the beans at the company's E3 conference earlier today, stamping a 3rd December release on the American version of the game.

Sadly the tiny Euro-flag we were waving [Union, surely? - Patriotic Ed] was ignored, and we can only hope it won't appear here too much further down the line.

It was a rather subdued conference by Nintendo in some respects, and even a pledge that this Smash Bros. would be "the Best Smash Bros. by far," was met by muted applause.

The biggest laugh of the morning came when Miyamoto calculated Reggie's Body Mass Index using the flashy new Wii Fit game. "Overweight," declared the fancy new title.
