Super Smash Bros. Brawl is set to include a new Spectator mode that allows you to watch random matches over the Internet and gamble on the results.

Unveiled on the official Smash Bros. DOJO!! website, Spectator mode does much as it says - although, this being Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, no player data is actually shared, so you can't groom anyone. Aw.

Surely the best bit though is that when you get into your random match, you can bet coins on the character you think will win before it kicks off. Which is just wicked.

Spectator mode joins an ever-growing list of cool little bonuses announced for Super Smash Bros. Brawl, which already has a star-GET-studded character line-up and a PictoChat-themed level.

If it's anywhere near as good as the GameCube one, we're all in for a treat when it's released early next year.
