Smash Bros. to have VC demos

Called Masterpieces. Time limited.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl will let you play trial versions of Virtual Console games.

The likes of Super Metroid and Star Fox 64 will be offered in the Masterpieces mode, according to the official SSMB site.

Each of the samplers will be time limited, so you can scream like Jack Bauer on a deadline as it slowly ticks away. You can always nip off to the Wii Shop and buy the full version afterwards.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl has 29 confirmed fighters so far, from Solid Snake to Princess Peach.

Pop over to the Smash Bros. DOJO for a full line-up.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl was recently delayed in the US by a month to 9th March. Still no word on a Euro date.
