I am afraid it is true, some of your favorite charachters from Super Smash Brothers Melee will not be in Brawl. So for all you Gandandorf, Mr game and Watch, Ice Climbers, Young link, Dr Mario, Falco and pichu fans, don't execpt to see these guys in Brawl. Why the sudden change in the formula? Why is nitendo taking out alll these charachters? Well one of the reasons is they want all the players to act diffrently. For instance pichu, Ganadorf, young link, Falco, Dr Mario have the same attacks as Captain Falcon, Link, Fox, and Mario. So Nitnedo decided that in order to provide a good new SSB game they needed more variety in thier characters. I am a master at Ganadorf so this news crushed me when i heard it. But we have to take the good with the bad after all I think Solid Snake could make up for him. The list of characters is near completion and I can only tell what I have heard. So far the new characters in Super Smash Brothers Brawl, are Zero Suit Samus, Metaknight, Pit, Solid Snake, and Wario. Dont worry old favorites like Bowser, Linkk, Mario and others will return to brawl. Brawl is shaping up to be more of a success than its predessor Melee. Well that is all i can tell you about it know, I will post new threads when I get some more information Saynora!
