E3 07: Animal Crossing animalizes Brawl

New stage, fighter profiles, and the return of the bouncy bumper

We're busy covering this year's E3, but we didn%26rsquo;t forget about our regular Smash Bros. Brawl updates, and the big newsis that the release date has been decided: December 3, 2007. The good people at the Brawl website also revealed an Animal Crossing stage. That%26rsquo;s right, even super-cute animal games aren%26rsquo;t safe fromthis fighter.

Don%26rsquo;t believe us? Well, you have trust issues. We're a videogame website and we know what we're talking about. But you can check for yourself at theSmash Bros. official website,and take a look at the action packed 15-second gameplay video.

Also, check out the pinball-style bumper back from the last Smash Bros. game, as well as the profile that they posted on one of the returning fighters, DK.
