Did you notice the feel of the buttons? Were they more similar to that of the GameBoy Advance / DS Lite, or were they the "click"-type buttons that we see on the GameBoy Advance SP / DS / DSi? I know this seems unimportant, but it can change the feel of a game for me.

I hate the buttons on the DSlite/DSi. They always get jammed. I'm hoping for GBA/DSPhat buttons.

I hope it's clicky. But maybe Nintendo learned about their mistake from the Lite's buttons (and shoulder buttons that I hate oh so much.).

I actually detest clicky buttons. It's too easy for my thumbs to let go and since there's less feedback on them, the entire action i'm doing is canceled. At least when you have more mushy buttons, if you let go just slightly by accident, it won't just click completely off and cancel what you were doing. I've always liked the buttons on the original GBA and the Lite DS. I feel myself having to press much lighter and like that feeling. I never heard of the buttons getting jammed either, unless you just slam your fingers down on them and move the buttons around while pressing down and TRY to catch them under the shell...

Shoulder buttons are a worry however. Hopefully they've fixed the inherent hardware flaw where they stop working unless you blow into them. I'm sick of telling people on forums to blow their DS, they never take it seriously until they've made a fool of themselves and tried it. And it STILL affects DSi systems... >_>

From the looks of the model shown at e3, the shoulder buttons are nearly identical to the DSi's. This is fantastic.

They should just use the GBA's shoulders. Those were great.

Brawl is like ZSS' breasts. Well rounded for casual players.
