OMZ! I have no Idea how the controller will work for the game. (Don't give me that Gamecube controller adapter crap!) But Now I'm really considering buying one. Then getting good at it, then ruling the world.
I thought snake was a joke, I'm glad he's not though. Sorry Capt. Falcon, you lose my top spot.

Oh snap! That is so tight. I just wanna play as Snake so I can hide in a cardboard box.

No, that's really, really cool.

Now I just hope they put in Skull Kid.

This just sealed the deal. I'm buying a Wii.

Edit: I wonder what Kirby looks like when he absorbs Snake.

Meta Knight = Instant Win

Samus seems a bit... voluptuous for a Smash Bros. game in my mind.
But certainly that won't factor into my decision to purchase a Wii.
Mike 05-10-2006 09:49 PM
o_O And Link isn't too violent a character for the game? He does carry around a big sword, arrows, and explosives.

I'm still pulling for Megaman and Sonic the Hedgehog.
Randolph 05-10-2006 09:54 PM
Likewise Mario sets people on fire and Kirby outright swallows them.

...all right, all right. I heard you the first time.
And really, I shouldn't be complaining after Peach's whimsical dress in Melee.

Anyhow, if they're going to include someone like Solid Snake of all people, Megaman and Sonic can't be too far off.

Awesome idea. I'm with ya.

I've been playing Melee a lot recently and now I hear about this. Wii just keeps getting better and better.

Nintendo has a lot of strong franchises to rely on. I just wish they would come up with some new ones....
X Prime 05-10-2006 09:56 PM
All I'm hoping is that Suitless Samus has a better head than her Metroid Prime concept art. I'd like it to be between the Fusion art and the Prime art.
Mike 05-10-2006 09:57 PM
I liked the Fusion unsuitedness best. In Zero she had a really really weird hairdo that looked like it was glued to her forehead. Fugly. But they ended up using it in Prime 2, so it may have become the new official look...ugh.

It's never going to happen, not in a million years, but I really want the Wind Waker versions of Link, Tetra/Zelda, and Ganondorf tossed into the cast.
Hobodoken 05-10-2006 10:05 PM
Apparently Mike, you're fear is correct. Unless I'm thinking of a different forehead hair.
Mike 05-10-2006 10:07 PM
For some reason though, that doesn't look as bad as in Zero Mission.
NVWC2006 05-10-2006 10:07 PM

psh, i liked Samus enough already, they didn't have to give us fanservice now, but i'm not complaining Big Grin

i'm sure, besides GCN controller compatible, that it will also be one of the games where you can use that adaptor that makes the Wii controller more like a gamepad. i'd actually be pretty happy that i can use the old controllers.. it means you don't need to buy all new stuff.

this game, so far, seems cool from the new characters. but it's really too early to tell how it will go down.
X Prime 05-10-2006 10:08 PM
...Huh? That hair isn't that bad... it's actually humanly possible I think.

And is that some kind of lightsaber gun? Her pistol wasn't like that in ZM...
Jstar136 05-10-2006 10:26 PM
OMG! This is huge! I come here to see if I was first, but I guess it was just lucky timing. I was thrown off by reading IGN's column on this when they said Mario, Link, Pikachu, and Kirby were confirmed to return. Then I realized it would be retarded to remove past characters like Ness or Mewtwo.

Solid Snake? Samus without a helmet? Wario? NINTENDOGS?

Where do I sign up!?
Schwarzwald 05-11-2006 12:33 AM


Oh screw you meta knight!!!! Gettin' my hopes up.

Looks pretty cool thoughm can't wait.

Snake is pretty cool though. "It's showtime!"(Big O totally) Can't wait to see how he'll play with everyone else.
Fujiko 05-11-2006 01:28 AM
OMG when I saw this I screamed like a little anime schoolgirl. The trailer is hilarious, and I love it. I'm just disappointed it isn't a launch title. Nonetheless, I am uber excited. Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin The detail is great, the moves look fantastic, and if the stages are like that, well you know i'm getting a Wii just for SSBB.

Additional note: Hooray for cardboard boxes!

I wonder what Kirby looks like when he absorbs Snake.

Probably with just a bandanna, or with the bandanna and his hair.
