Update Feb 7 2008: Check out my top 10 Wii games for 2008 list!
The 3D fighter, developed by Nintendo, Sora and Game Arts, is always at the tip-top of GameStats’ most wanted list and these days it’s also the most popular game on IGN thanks to readers like you. It’s not difficult to understand why, either — after all, the anticipated Wii brawler represents the culmination of Nintendo’s beloved franchise; more characters, stages and options than ever before, not to mention enhanced graphics and addictive online-compatible multiplayer modes to boot.
