    Default Official Super Smash Bros. Brawl Thread (OUT NOW!)

    http://revolution.ign.com/articles/707/707504p1.html

    Oh my. Solid Snake vs Pit vs Sonic the Hedgehog vs Unarmored Samus.

    I think I just crapped my pants in excitement.

    Yeah, Miyamoto didn't say Sonic was officially in, but I think the writing is on the wall.

    This title will sell two million Wii's alone.

    Kudos to Nintendo.

    I doubt there's a next generation title I'm geeking out for more than this one.

    The addition of Snake I think is significant, because he's not a Nintendo character, like most of the other characters. Maybe this does open the door for Sonic.

    Sonic won't be in this edition though. If Sonic was in this version of SSB, it would be all over the marquee already.

    Uh uh. You clearly don't remember the last Smash Bros. launch. They announced a couple of new characters early (the Ice Climbers, for instance) but left some of the bigger surprises (Zelda) for closer to release. It' very possible Sonic could be in this game. In other news, NoJ has launched a website asking fans who they'd like to see in the game, so I'd say anything's possible at this point.

    It's possible, or even likely, that Nintendo hasn't finalized the agreement with Sega. Or they're holding back more information to create even more hype, but based off of this line by Miyamoto:

    "There are probably possibilities for other third parties as well, and it maybe that even [now] there are corporate discussions going on about including some of these other characters."

    It would seem that Sonic would be the most likely candidate to fill out their roster.

    Additionally, Nintendo of Japan is sponsoring a "write-in" for Japanese fans to vote for additional characters.

    Extremely encouraging.

    I'm not one for speculation, but it's looking probable, if not a sure thing, we're going to see Sega's mascot make an appearance in Brawl.

    Could you imagine if Sega dipped into their well and put in characters like Alex Kidd or, dare I say it, Nei in SSB:B? Starting to sweat, need to calm down…

    I really hope NOA does a poll of there own. I still want pig Ganon! And, as I posted in the E3 thread, since Uematsu is the one who did the main theme for this game, it's not totally out of the question to see someone like Cloud.

    Very exciting.

    I wonder what these Wii games will cost? Has that been discussed anywhere yet?

    There's been some minor discussion about it in the E3 thread. I'm guessing Nintendo will stick to the $40-50 range.

    Well, to be fair, the addition of Zelda/Sheik kinda pales in comparison to Sonic by quite a bit. I mean, people have been arguing whether Sonic or Mario is better for the last 15 years. All Nintendo has to do is breath the words "Mario vs. Sonic" and they'd have 10 million copies sold, even if it's a carwashing sim.

    So I'd have to say that Nintendo doesn't need to ask its fans what they want for them to know people want Mario vs. Sonic. That's a given. And I think if Nintendo had a deal worked out with Sega over the use of Sonic in this game, like I said, they wouldn't have kept it a secret.

    When they added Zelda, that was their decision. Nintendo owns Zelda. Nintendo can't just "decide" to use Sonic. Sega has to let them use Sonic.

    It's POSSIBLE that they'll work out a deal with Sega before SSBB is released and then get Sonic coded for the game, but they've already had years to work out a deal like that. I wouldn't bet money on that getting done in the next six months or so.

    Judging by what Miyamoto said, though, it's possible Nintendo is in discussions with Sega right now. It could be that they're holding off announcing this 'til the end of E3, kind of as a final bomb to drop. This way they have a kind of trump card in case Sony or Microsoft announce some big surprise.

    Or, if they don't announce anything at E3, maybe there'll be a Spaceworld this year. Nintendo has to announce the price and release date of the Wii sometime.

    But that could be the next surprise. I mean SSBB was a total surprise at E3, they didn't even mention it at there press conference.

    Could be over the summer or during xmas, whenever a few months before release comes, when we see the Sonic vs Mario headlines.

    This way it stays fresh in peoples minds and the next day people go pre-order it. Whats the point of saying something as big as that when the game isn't coming out for 8-20 months, based on a 2007 release date.

    You know, I'd love to see Megaman in this series. He'd be perfect.

    Pffft. Let's keep a little perspective, please. Sonic in a Super Smash Bros. game is cool, but not that big of a deal.

    My Nominations.

    Sega = Sonic, Alex Kidd
    Capcom = Mega Man, Any character from Pocket Fighter
    Tatio = Bub or Bob, The Kiwi from Newzeland Story
    Konami Snake (confirmed), Simon Belmont.

    Also, if they managed to have Simon and Mega Man, and they already have Pit, then they should add Captain N for fun. Also, it would be cool if there was a Tag or team mode.

    Simon's already been in at least two tournament fighting games (Battle Tryst, and the Hudson/Konami SSBM-alike), but neither game was available to gamers outside of Japan. How sad is that?

    Way to go, Nintendo! You've raped the soul of one of your series, and it only took 3 games total to do!

    I want Sonic and Bonk. Hell since both Genesis and TubroGraphx games are downloadable then why not?

    Yeah, I think that, although incredibly obsurd, that this is the best move that nintendo has ever made. This is turning-out to be the best E3 ever; THE BEST, F*CKING E3 EVER!!!

    As nothing more than a chunk of programming code and some video game characters, I'm fairly certain there is no "soul" to speak of, nor was there ever.

    Yeah.
    You're right.
    The central or integral part; the vital core, defined as the soul, never existed in Super Smash Bros. It was never, ever some surreal meeting of strictly Nintendo characters, All Stars, in order for them to duke it out for a while.

    It was just code. That's all it was. I was wrong to appreciate it as a collection of characters, stages, music, and idiosyncrasies from the Nintendo Universe. In fact, I should never appreciate any videogame ever again as more than a vast pool of strings of code.
