WYCKOFF, N.J. — Only one Wyckoff teen can be called champion after the "Super Smash Bros Brawl" brawl this Wednesday, Nov. 18.

Up to 32 contestants will compete against their peers on a Nintendo Wii at the 5 p.m. video game competition in the Monroe Room of the Wyckoff Public Library.

"It's about competition," teen librarian Bruce Weber said of the bi-annual event. "They love it."

The tournament is open to gamers ages 11 to 18. The winner takes home a Gamestop gift card.

Video games are a large part of the Wyckoff Library. Twice a month the library holds open gaming sessions for teens. The basement houses a Nintendo Wii, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 with a large screen TV to go with each. Each system will likely be upgraded to the newest model in the near future, Weber said.

"Super Smash Bros." is a fighting game featuring characters from various Nintendo titles such as Mario, Link from "The Legend of Zelda" and PIkachu.

The game is popular with teenagers and gives them a fun activity, Weber said.

"It's tough to be a teen librarian," she said. "It's hard to get kids to come to the programs because they're very, very busy. I love it when [they come] though. They're so much fun."
