– Didn’t see anything on MotionPlus for the game
– Matt wishes they would have gone farther with visual style
– Still excited about this version more than any other on Wii
– Have to wait and see what modes they’re keeping, changing

– It’s a pretty looking brawler
– Animations are good
– Hoping to run at 60 FPS

– Sounds like it’ll be a basic brawler
– Putting a lot of motion in there, seems unnecessary
– Matt more psyched than he was before
– Very co-op focused
