Awesome!  I was REALLY REALLY hoping they'd include him again in this game.  I really enjoyed playing as Sonic in Brawl.

I just hope they give him more smash attacks. In Brawl he had only one - that donkey kong punch

I'm finally starting to get excited for this game.

Not because of Sonic but because I've seen enough now that I think it will be a worthy sequel.

Hopefully it keeps coming along as well as it seems to be so far.

Glad to see sonic is back. Although, I don't find it too surprising considering nintendo recently did that deal with sega to make sonic game exclusive to nintendo consoles.

Funny it seems...back in the 90's sonic was the competitor of Mario and now sega is everybody's bitch!

The problem with SSB is there are just too many great characters to fit into one game. I am glad to see Sonic return - he deserves to be a mainstay IMHO!

Why they don't put Majora's Mask's young Link? WHY? I really imagined how cool it would be to be able to convert into a deku, a goron or a zora :(.

BTW, Why not Shadow? since you always put clones of other characters... Toon Link, Falco, Lucas, Dr. Mario, Ganondorf, Lucario, Pichu.

Was not expecting this on the direct at all! I wasn't sure Sonic would make it, to be honest.

I'm hopeing that maybe Wonderful 101 or Bayoneta make it into this game...... well Bayoneta probably won't since they got to sell it to kids but the 101 would be cool

Glad that he's returning but he need some serious tweaks, he was ridiculously weak in SSBB O.o

I think most of us knew Sonic would be re-appearing in the next Smash game.

@Slagar There can never be too many great characters in a single game.

@Valdomer0 

Lucario is hardly a clone (considering his fighting style is completely different than Mewtwo) it's almost like saying Ike is a clone, Dr. Mario and Pichu were removed while Falco, Toon Link and Ganondorf (while having similarities to Fox, Link and Cap. Falcon) played very differently and had their own metagame. 

Your idea for Young Link does sound awesome though, but no Shadow, if any other character from Sonic, Tails but that's it.

@justinka777 Yeah like Oogazi said, that doesn't matter at all. I think she has a chance to make it, to promote the character.

Gotta disagree with you, man. He was my preferred character. If anything, his final smash needs to be weakened a bit. That thing was overpowered.

@PaladinPaterson Knight of the Wind doesn't exist anymore? Follow Me doesn't exist anymore? Sweet Passion just poofed out of existence? Sonic Heroes's theme wasn't the best song in Sonic's overall awesome soundtrack history, but it's definitely not the worst.

@abHS4L88 @Valdomer0 Indeed in SMBB Nintendo did changed some similar movesets of the cloned characters, they still have that feeling of playing with copy/paste moves, that's my thought.

After having a second thought, I'll have to accept that Lucario is not a clone of mewtwo actually. Anyways, I would like to see another pokemon from B&W Generation.

I like the idea of Shadow because of the Chaos control stuff, Knuckles sounds good to me though, Tails would be my third choice.

@YearoftheSnake5 @IncisionX 

He actually was pretty weak with hardly any reliable finishers, what made him strong was his quick follow ups and combo ability.

@Valdomer0

While Shadow would undoubtedly play differently, his physique is just too similar to Sonic. Knuckles would be a more natural choice given that of all the Sonic characters, he was the only one who actually fought like a human, but I think Tails would just be more of a unique character (kind of like how Peach has typically been one of the best Mario characters). 

I do think semi-clone characters are good though because they tend to be for those of different skill sets as well as handling differently, but giving you a representative of that franchise. It's like in Melee, the newbies or noobs played with Roy while the experienced players preferred Marth (only freaking Fox and Falco were both top tier).
