Super Smash Bros. Brawl Midnight Madness Launch Event Footage

Over the weekend, as you all well know unless you’ve been living under a rock, Super Smash Bros. Brawl launched with a flood of launch parties and tournaments from coast to coast. While the GameStop/EB Games tournament series may not have turned out to be all it was cracked up to be, the nationwide tournament Nintendo and Best Buy put on, culminating at the Midnight Madness launch event at the Best Buy in NoHo, NYC Saturday night into Sunday morning, appears to have been the place to be to celebrate the game’s launch to its fullest. If you don’t live in NY and weren’t able to make it to the party/tournament finale, here’s a collection of six clips recapping the event. All footage provided by Nintendo.
