    Im indifferent about snake. I don't mind it, but he probably wont be my character of choice.

    I don't see the big fuss some are making over him being in the game.

    I mean, come'on out of the 5 games he stars in:
    3 are on nintendo consoles
    2 are on sony consoles
    1 is on a microsoft console.

    and he started on the nes, so he isn't as far out there as lets say masterchief would be.

    Don't forget masterchief was in DOA 4 and no one really complained there and he fit in well to.

    The best part of the trailer was Mario's face when he was in Kirby's cooking pot.

    Metal Gear first appeared on the MSX computer. It was then ported to the NES as an inferior version to the original. The original MSX versions were then emulated on the Playstation 2 inside Metal Gear Solid 3 itself.

    3 are on Nintendo consoles? Let's see, you got -
    Metal Gear - An inferior port.
    Snake's Revenge - Made without the involvement of Hideo Kojima and made strictly for American and European markets. It is not even canon with reguards to the main Metal Gear storyline.
    Twin Snakes - A remake of the original solid which appeared on Playstation.

    So, pretty much, two official titles, one an inferior port and one a remake. Right, Nintendo consoles have had one major Metal Gear game, a remake, released on one of their systems in the last 15 years. It now makes perfect sense as to why they would have Snake as a character in the new Smash Bros game. PERFECT sense.

    The reason no one really complained about Master Chief (actually, a seperate Spartan soldier, not Master Chief at all, but a character named Nicole) in Dead or Alive 4 or even extra characters in Soul Calibur 2 was that these games were NOT representations of each companies created universe, respectively. Smash Bros is different in the respect that it's a collection of everything Nintendo. Stages, music, characters, ALL Nintendo. Suddenly throwing Snake into this mix just makes it a surreal collection of Nintendo characters... with a guy named Snake thrown in. It just doesn't work out, and, as I've said before, it kills the soul of the series.

    Wow, "destroyed the soul" of the series? Well, expect there to be a lot more non-Nintendo characters. SSB has always been about just a shit ton of IP whoring across all generations, now it's about IP whoring across more than just Nintendo.

    It didn't have a "soul" in the first place.

    @ GoTaS

    C'mon man, it's not about you or me. It's about Wii.

    Seriously, though, how can this not be seen as a good sign? This is Nintendo seriously reaching out to a major 3rd party, one that hasn't shown much Nintendo support in some time. And keep in mind that Kojima practically begged to have Snake included. He actually wanted Snake in Melee.

    Even if a couple non-Nintendo characters are included in the game, it's still a game that's chiefly about the Nintendo experience. That these other companies want their characters involved just shows how cool it is.

    So I could go out on a limb and assume that you hated Pac-Man in Mario Kart Arcade? Nor were you a fan of Conker in Diddy Kong Racing? Didn't like Mario in Pac-Man Vs. either?

    You all seem to have forgotten about the fantastic Metal Gear Solid: Ghost Babel on the Game Boy Color. And the original Metal Gear, though inferior to the MSX version, is still the one most US gamers would be familar with, and is definitely a well remembered title for the NES.

    You trying to say that Smash Bros being completely different from Dead or Alive or Soul Calibur in "created universe" is also full of bullshit. DoA uses more than the DOA universe-remember Ryu Hayabusa? Soul Calibur uses Yoshimitsu, from Tekken. That counts as being spread out across more than one IP, and yet I bet you thought it was cool when Link was in Soul Calibur, or Nicole was in Dead Or Alive. The only difference is that this is a percieved concession on Nintendo's part, when it's really not.


    If you don't like Snake in the game, then make a stupid house rule that no one can use him.

    Agreed with Uber. There's too much history for Snake to fit into some rabid anti-Sony, anti-Konami fantasy :/

    lol @ "ripping the soul out of the franchise"

    The soul of the franchise is taking famous video game characters and duking it out with three of your friends in completely non-serious, non-canonical, senseless fun.

    Putting SSBB together with Snake neither demeans the Smash Brothers series, nor does it demean Snake. Give me a break.

    If anyone is insulted over Super Smash Brothers Brawl, then don't buy it, and let the rest of us have a blast.

    If I may, I am going to have fun kicking people's butts over the Internet with all of Snake's Arsenal.

    Think about it. There is something that just sounds satisfying about shooting Pikachu in the face with a rocket launcher.

    I am glad Snake is in it. More characters the better.

    Finally, my dream of snapping a Princess' neck will come true.
    I wonder what other characters will be added.

    Having Alex from Eternal Darkness would be rad, especailly if they give her the ability to transform into some of her ancestors (ala Zelda to shiek).

    Aya from Parasite Eve would also be nice, but that one seems unlikely.

    c'mon... we all want to see Nemo with his friendly creatures and candy =D

    or A Boy and his Blob running around, sort of like the ice climbers.

    There's a ton of characters that would be cool to see in it. =) All in due time.

    Well that won't be a problem because it doesn't use the remote at all. This game will use the regular Wii controller (the one being released for the virtual console) or I'm guessing the cube one.

    So Snake is in there.

    So Super Smash Bros. Brawl is gonna be awesome.

    So why isn't Sonic in there yet?

    So that would make Super Smash Bros. Brawl fucking awesome, am I right? Yep.

    Yes. Adding third parties. You mean you've never wondered how a Snake Vs. Peach match would go?

    Admit it. You want Snake.

    And while I'm not betting on Sonic, Snake's appearance indicates more probable third party involvement, like that one article keeps saying.
