An interesting part of Smash History that's never discussed: Super Smash Bros. Brawl: The Two Hidden Delays. Originally, the game was intended for the Wii's Launch. December 3rd was the release date at E3 2007. At E3, Reggie infamously said "Super Smash Bros Brawl for the Wii will be launching on December 3rd".
On October 10th, when Sonic the Hedgehog was added to the game, Super Smash Bros. Brawl was delayed from December 3rd to February 10th. The hype was so big that it took people a while to notice Sonic being used to hide the delay on the website. Many fans were in so much shock after Sonic that it took them a while to notice that the game was delayed.
On January 14th, so close to release, the game was delayed again. To compensate this. Olimar was revealed on the Dojo a week before and Sheik was revealed during the week of the news.
While there's not that much else to say about it, it's an interesting part of history for anyone who was there, and the only time a Smash game has been delayed so far when a date was already put on it.
What do you think of these delays? Were you around for them? Particularly Sonic's? Let us know in the comments below!
