Word is that several retailers have broken the street date for Super Smash Bros Brawl. This according to threads on NeoGAF and Hipinion, so I'm convinced. One piece of advice: You're better off checking your local independent stores instead of bigtime chains, what with all their "rules."
Still can't say I care too much. I don't think Nintendo's PR firm is sending us a copy, either.
But you guys feel free to go nuts on that thing.
