Awesome! I was REALLY REALLY hoping they'd include him again in this game. I really enjoyed playing as Sonic in Brawl.
OK NINTENDO NOW YOU HAVE MY MONEY ! i am gonna buy a wii u and maybe a 3ds too only because Smash with Sonic and megaman together , i am huge fan of Sonic , Thanks Sega and Nintendo for this !!!!
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.
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
@dashboardman do you know that Sega own Athlus now ? how Sega can be everybody's bitch...
@Slagar There can never be too many great characters in a single game.
@Slagar And you would rather crap characters ?
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.
@Valdomer0 MM Link is best idea of the decade.
@justinka777 Yeah like Oogazi said, that doesn't matter at all. I think she has a chance to make it, to promote the character.
@justinka777 pls... Snake's in the game
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.
@PaladinPaterson wth does that mean?
@G4m3r0uTL4wZ This coming from someone who probably hasn't even played PSASBR
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.
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).
