Mr. Game & Watch


(click to show Brawl trivia)

Mr. Game & Watch had a few problem matchups, and he dominated in some matchups more than he really should have. However, both sorts of problems were mostly fixed by changing other characters, not Mr. Game & Watch

A few little abusive things on him were fixed, and a few little problems he had were resolved. Mr. Game & Watch cares far more about the fact that Balanced Brawl features a very wide stage list; this allows him to be in his element more than ever.

All around, Mr. Game & Watch is largely the same, but the way the game is opened up helps him out.
