About time!

Sonic will be a playable character in Smash Bros. Brawl for Wii. He joins Snake as a non-Nintendo IP brawler. Will we see any other surprises in the character list? Who would you like to see?

  1. Ryu Hyabusa would be pretty hot (from Ninja Gaiden), but i think one normal human character is enough with Snake. Hello Kitty would destroy all!

  2. Megaman!!!!!!! For the love of God, MEGAMAN!!!

    And maybe the dude from Bionic Commando.

    And Arthur from Ghosts N’ Goblins.

    And Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden.

    And all the bosses from Megaman.

    And Tron Bonne.

  3. Megaman would kickass, for sure.

    The layout of thecharacter listing page sort of implies there will be two more new characters. This could just be Tails and Knuckles (or Tails and some version of Evil Sonic) but it’d be awesome if they grabbed the licenses to two other, outside of Nintendo characters.

  4. TheMainEvent says:

    Cloud and/or Sephiroth would rock.

  5. Jill Valentine.

    She’d be awesome to make into a giblet sandwich in super smash brothers.

    That sounds dirty.

  6. I hadn’t thought of MegaMan, that’d be KICKASS!

    Where’s Tails & Knuckles?
