Well, today at the Electronic Entertainment Exposition, Shigeru Miyamoto showed off a video debuting the new Smash Bros. game for the Wii.
Scheduled for release in 2007, confirmed new characters are: Wario, Pit (from Kid Icarus), and Meta Knight (from the Kirby games.)
As their video went on, it cut to a conversation between Solid Snake and Otacon via his wrist watch. As it goes, Otacon says that Snake has been invited to Super Smash Bros., and then asks where Snake is. Snake says he is on recon, and the camera zooms to show Snake hiding in a box while some Smash Bros. characters are fighting.
It is said that Konami had asked Nintendo to let them put Snake in. They said it would open doors for other third parties to put their characters in the game. Sonic anyone?
Personally, I find Smash Bros fun, from a unbiased position, and really, the entertainment value of the series has just gone through the roof.
Edit- I have yet to find the video, so if anyone comes across it, post up. Oh, and duh…the game is gonna use the normal Gamecube controller. Big Green Button ftw.
Allright! Let the fanboy speculation begin! Multiple Kongs should be playable. I.E. Diddy and Funky in Addition to donkey. King Dedede needs in, maybe even other kirby characters like knuckle joe and mirror wizard. If wario is in then waluigi should be in it (also with a redesigned costume) Star wolf, pigma more fire emblem characters (Needs Joshua from sacred stones) Birdo, wart. baby bowser, some random high profile koopa kids. Nerf Ridley thow him in there. Pig-gannon, A Goron and Impa to round out the Zelda cast. Uuuhhh… Toad. A balloon fighter.
Mystical ninja Goemon and friends
Megaman and Protoman, Bass
Besides sonic and tales, Espio, Eggman

This is the first time I’ve been able to post in about a year or something like that, and I still don’t have time now, but…
This is amazing. It does open the doors to other third party characters, but don’t worry, I have no doubt it won’t be overrun, and Kojima has begged for Snake to be in SSBM but it was too late into developement. He’s really good friends with Miyamoto, or so I hear. The team is people that know what they are doing, and they are using the old system only adding. Can’t help wanting a super bar or stock of some sort for some kind of super moves and burst function, but that overpowered fireball of Mario’s is just an item. If Meta-Knights slashing in his intro says anything about the combo system then there should be now worries. Looks like it will be fun and will allow larger combos kind of like the first, but looks better. Might be due to the director. I have confidence in these guys and there is no doubt they’ll be balancing, they know about the games depth, wavedashing, ect.
Balanced, better combo system… maybe super stock please (through defensive and combos)? It’s also online. I’m getting a team buddy. I reallly would recommend no more than five other characters. More means more imbalance, but my team stuff is going to be amazing, I’ll make it happen. I might check a little more in, but see you guys later (at least for a while).
