Sonic playable in Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Blue Hedgehog haters will get their chance to beat up Sega's mascot in the eagerly awaited Wii game.


Sonic the Hedgehog is a busy guy these days. Not only is he going to be competing against Mario in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, he's now going to be fighting in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Due out in Europe and Japan in Q1 2008 and at a now-undetermined date in North America, Super Smash Bros. Brawl is a fighting game for the Wii featuring a variety of playable iconic video game characters, including Link, Mario, Wario, Solid Snake, and a suitless Samus.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl will also feature online multiplayer battles between up to four players, along with a new adventure mode called The Subspace Emissary, where gamers pick a favourite character and then journey on an adventure to do battle with various bosses from Nintendo games. Other stages for players to battle in include Delfino Plaza, Yoshi's Island, and Sky World.

The superfast Sonic first appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog for the Sega Megadrive in 1991, as a Sega mascot to rival Nintendo's popular Mario character. Since then he has appeared in numerous games, comics, and cartoons.
