I have already posted something like this before, but I decided to post another updated version of a giant list of characters in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. This List is all based off of Rumors and confirmations on the character list for Brawl coming out on Feb. 10, 2008. and do not have any of those "My wish List" characters. All based off of recent rumors off of the internet. If the rumors are true, than the characters on this list will most likely be on Brawl. By the way, in a recent rumor, it stated that Sakurai (creator of Brawl) pushed back the date of Super Smash Bros. to add more characters. He also said that he wanted over 40 characters in the game, plus 3 or more 3rd party characters. (So far, Sonic and Snake have been announced)
Here are some characters that WILL be returning to Brawl that were in Melee.
Now for the sad part, the ones in Melee that will not come back in Brawl.
Roy & Marth:confirmed
Pichu, Jigglypuff, and Mewtwo:confirmed
Mr. Game & Watch:confirmed
Some characters from Brawl may or may not be coming back. There has not been any word on them yet.
These characters are:
Luigi: Clone characters may not return
Ganondorf: Said to be wanted most by Japanese gamers
Now for the new characters confirmed for Brawl.
King Dedede:confirmed:from Kirby
Zero Suit Samus:confirmed:from Metroid
Diddy Kong:confirmed:from Donkey Kong
Ike:confirmed:from Fire Emblem
Pit:confirmed:from Kid Icarus
Pokemon Trainer:confirmed:from Pokemon
Lucas:confirmed:from Mother 3(released in Japan only)
Snake:confirmed:from Metal Gear Solid
Sonic:confirmed:from Sonic the Hedgehog
Here are the rumors that were spread around the internet. They may be true, and may be fake. You decide.
Ridley:rumored from Sakurai:from Metroid
Baby Bowser:rumored from Sakurai:from Mario
Cel shaded Link:rumored from Sakurai/ "Graphics designer from Prima games":From Legend of Zelda:Windwaker
Krystal:rumored from blogs etc./various magazines:from Starfox adventures
Tingle:rumored from blogs:from Legend of Zelda (I personally think it is a joke and not true)
Plusle and Minun:rumored from blogs etc.:from Pokemon
Lucario:rumored from blogs etc./various magazines:from Pokemon
Captain Olimar:rumored from blogs etc.:from Pikmin
(From a Youtube video that was removed)
Those are the rumors out there. Remember, they are only rumors, and do not mean they are true.
Here are some answers to some questions you might be asking yourself.
Does Link have a move where he turns into a wolf?
A: Sadly, no. Link's moves have already been announced, and a move where he turns into a wolf does not exist. Link's current moves are:
Up special: The spin attack
Side special: Gale Boomerang
Standard Special:Hero's bow
Is Samurai Goroh a character?
A: No. He is only an assist trophy. Same goes for Lyn from Fire Emblem. That is too bad . . . But an F-zero assist trophy may mean Captain Falcon is most likely to return.
What happened to the pokemon?
A: Sakurai has already announced that the only Pokemon character staying is Pikachu. But, all 3 pokemon are being replaced with Charizard, Squirtle, and Ivysaur, all included with the Pokemon trainer. There still might be some Pokemon characters announced.
A: Sadly, Sakurai announced that clone characters will not be coming back. I do not know if there will be clone characters in Brawl, but I am assuming there is.
Thanks for reading!
