    is it just me, or has anyone got to thinking that nintendo is releasing their vc games in accordance to promote smash bros? by this i mean they're puting out games that feature charchters that will be in the upcoming smash bros. if im correct, this is a brilliant stradegy, nintendo already knows smash bros will be the best selling wii game, and with all the "new gamers" the wii attracts, they can use the vc games to lure these new gamers into buying smash bros brawl.

    think about it
    super mario bros/world/ 64 = mario, luigi, yoshi, peach, bowser
    kirbys adventure = kirby, meta knight, (maybe dedede)
    kid icarus = pit
    ice climbers = popo&nana (the ice climbers)
    donkey kong country = donkey kong, (maybe diddy kong and king k. rool)
    zelda:link to past = link, zelda
    f-zero = captian falcon

    now pokemon will sell itself, everyone knows bout pokemon. then u got wario ware that released for wii to promote wario as a new comer. and if you look at the games that are registered with the ESRB you see that STAR FOX 64 is comming and metroid. my guess is as metroid will release next, then star fox, near the release brawl.

    Well, considering the fact that most of the characters from SSBB have major games... it only makes sense that they would release those games, but I do see what you're saying.

    But Ice climbers aren't in SSBB.

    It's not been confirmed that Ice Climbers are in it. Nor has it been denied.

    I would definatly say its just a coinicidence, and not that big of one considering SSBB characters are all from major Nintendo games.

    Meh - I think it's safe to say they aren't in it.

    Anyways, I'm not going to say it's a coincidence, but I don't think it's the sole reason they released it.

    I'd say coincidence. The VC is just putting out some of their best games, which happen to include the star characters. Just makes sense.

    it would be an easy coincidence, due to the fact that most characters came from major nintendo games... but its a very interesting theory

    You all who think Ice Climbers and others in melee except clones won't be on Brawl are naive and stupid, of course they will be in it, imagine if they are not, they won't take out characters, the will add more...and yes I agree, and I have thought of it before, Nintendo is fomenting their franchises for Brawl and it works because it makes mw want to buy those classic games..I got Kid Icarus and will be buying Ice Climber probably

    EXACTLY! i was so tempted to buy kid icarus cuz i know he's in brawl, and ice climber just because of that. i bet anything in the next two weeks metroid will be released for nes.

    i heard in the wii version on SSB, you can be a puppy from nintendogs...

    this is funny, but at the sametime, i hope nintendo isnt getting cheezy with SSB... its a fine art that has to be crafted with special minds,


    nintendogs?... he better have sharp teeth...

    lol Sovieto, finally we agree on something: Marth and Roy suck...and yeah I know alot of people who are amazing with Ice Climbers and is/are their main characters and I know Nintendo is aware of lots of people who want Ice Climbers so they cannot take them out.

    Megaweapon: sir, I don't believe a Nintendog will be in the gameas a playable character, it's more like an item to use against your foes, like the pok├ęballs and all of that; it's just to block the screen so that others, the foes, can't look and have difficulty locating themselves, but for someone like me who has good precision and localization that would be a great weapon for me to use against others..

    No I think you might be over thinking the VC games a little too much.
    It's probably just random releasing according to how fast they can get them coded.
    It's most likely a coincidence.

    I heard rumors they may have Cloud from FF7 in SSBB. They have one of the guys from Square working on the game. Bear in mind it's only the musician, it still implies possible Square characters added to the roster. Maybe even Goku since Square was friendly with Bird Studios in the past. Very doubtful. But I'd enjoy beating the crap out of Goku for all those horrible fighting games they made.
