From Nintendo's Online Press Room:
REDMOND, Wash., Feb. 13, 2008 - Attention all Smash fans: Put up your dukes! Just before the launch of the much-anticipated Super Smash Bros.® Brawl, Mario™ and friends are hosting four regional Wii™ tournaments. The competitions will visit Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston and finally New York for a Midnight Madness Launch event at the Best Buy store at 622 Broadway in New York. All of the 256 participants at each location will receive a $10 Best Buy gift card. One lucky grand prize winner will receive a custom-designed, crystal-covered Wii, a home theater system from Best Buy and other prizes.
"Super Smash Bros. is one of the world's most popular game franchises because it draws in characters from across the Nintendo universe and beyond for some all-out fighting fun," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of sales & marketing. "Super Smash Bros. Brawl has extreme appeal among our core audience, but these tournaments are a great way to get new fans involved as well - before the game is even available in stores."
Each regional tournament will provide the first 256 people in attendance the chance to "brawl" one-on-one with other contestants in a single-elimination tournament to determine a winner in each market. Regional winners will face off in a final multiplayer "brawl" at the New York City tournament.
The grand prize winner will receive a crystal-coated Wii with a design from Super Smash Bros. Brawl, a home theater system from Best Buy and a copy of the game. The second-place finisher will receive one Wii system and Wii Remote, one copy of Super Smash Bros. Brawl and a $1,000 Best Buy gift card. The third-place finisher will receive a Wii and Wii Remote, a copy of the game and a $500 Best Buy gift card. The fourth-place finisher will receive a Wii, an extra Wii Remote, a copy of the game and a $250 Best Buy gift card. For more information about the tournaments, visit Nintendo.com.

Not really news but something to check out if you've seen The Wizard and enjoyed it. Friday there was a reunion for the movie The Wizard held in Austin, Texas in which Ray Barnholt has a recap of what went down there including some pictures, video, and Q&A session.

Mario apparently has something special. Kotaku.com's Editor Brian Crecente wrote up an article yesterday talking about how his wife, an anti-gamer, enjoyed playing Super Mario Galaxy.
I played Super Mario Galaxy for the first time just a couple of months ago although I have no clue why she would ditch her anti-gaming beliefs just for this title. Sure I love Mario, but it's amazing. However, I highly doubt she has given up on her anti-gaming streak. Better hurry Nintendo and get some more Mario titles out there!

Yesterday's DOJO update was an announcement on the future updates to the site in which all updates from February 1st onward will be on hidden content for the title. I advise you if you do not want spoilers then do not check out the site for updates.
