How about a Japanese-developed game that was never released in Japan? That's right -- STARTROPICS.

Mike Jones has had 2 games, man. C'mon, Nintendo, pleeeeeeease?

That would be freakin' awsome. And I think that it could work too. Mike had plenty of weapons that he used throughout the two games.

I'm not sure if this has been talked about in the thread so far but it's the weekend so let's take it in another direction for a moment.

Thus far, everyone (including me), has pretty much said characters like Megaman and a Belmont should or probably will make it in. However, I remember a while ago Sakurai said that he intended to have more American representation in Brawl. So who do you think could be a third party rep for the Americans?

One character which immediately comes to mind, which in a way represented Sony back during the PSX/N64 era, is Crash Bandicoot. Nowadays he's made it to the Nintendo systems from Cube, GBA, DS, Wii, etc, so he definitely has quite a few Nintendo games under his belt. It would certainly round out the Sega/Nintendo/PSX rivalry of the 90s.

I think he's a pretty lame character on a personal note.

Also Earthworm Jim (please).

So what do you guys think? What American (or maybe even European; Ubisoft) characters would you like to see or think have a shot making it into Brawl?

Western characters (non Japanese) ?

hmm.... that is a real tough one... besides the aforementioned Earthworm Jim (and Crash)... I can't really think of any good characters from Western studios... besides some Mortal Kombat characters...

StarCraft was on the N64... would it be weird to see a Space Marine show up? Or a Zergling? Wouldn't that be weird!!

Hmm... what else? I'm having a real difficult time thinking of some... *HMM*

I guess technically Diddy Kong (and Donkey Kong's representation) could be considered western from Rare's influence on the evolution of Donkey Kong's persona.... man... what a toughie. I just cannot for the life of me, think of any Western characters that have been on a Nintendo system...

Rayman, maybe? Spiderman? Batman? Err, I don't know how licensing would work with that... I doubt any comic book superheroes would ever show up, although it would be cool. Used to be a lot of StarWars stuff from back in the day............... but that'd be weird.

hmmmm....... video game characters..... *thinks really hard*

.... oh to hell with this.... Japan is so xenophobic anyway, Sakurai probably meant for Japanese characters that Westerners are aware of. BUT STILL, there are tons of Japan only characters showing up... hmm...

Nintendo did have something going with EA, like how Mario, Peach, and Luigi showed up in NBA Street.... maybe some EA property will show up... *shrugs* but all they do is license crap ... I can't think....

EDIT: AH HA! SAM FISHER. *whew*

Guitar Hero was on Wii so I dunno Pandora or Lou could possibly be an American character... Tira or Ivy from Soul Calibur could be a character too. RealFolkBlues... your sig is made of awesome just because it's the first Bebop one I've sen with Jet in it.

EDIT: Nevermind about SC, I just remembered that it's Japan made, still they'd be cool

A couple things. First, thank you sir for the compliment. Jet is NARROWLY my second favorite character in the series. Your sig made me and a co-worker lol pretty hard.

Secondly, Nintendo has a controlling portion of NamcoBandai's stock, so a Soul Calibur character isn't out of the question, especially after Link having been in SC2. Granted, it wouldn't really qualify as a western-produced character, but I would love to wreck somebody's world with Astaroth or Nightmare.

So, after lurking for quite some time (a few months, I believe), I've finally gone and registered. Can't wait to argue the finer points of SSBB with you guys!

Wow, this thread has been great. Its basically a summary of all the craziness that happens on the Gamefaqs SSBB message board (without a majority of the stupidity).

Before I say anything else, let me state that if Mega Man classic is in Brawl, and has the ability to gain a new power by KO-ing an enemy (so he doesn't copy like Kirby does), this game will be the single best game of this, and perhaps any generation!!!

On the latest subject...american reps...I really can't think of any that deserve it. Sorry!

having a character in a game doesnt make it the greatest game ever if they somehow screwed up mechanics they could have enough characters to make every fanboy in the world wet himself but suck

Right, because all evidence so far shows us sloppy programming and poor game mechanics. Plus, both previous games were horrible.

no but i am just trying to convey the fact that the inclusion of a single character does in no way cause this game to be anywhere closer to perfection than it would be without that

also hey look 1 week no updates

im probably late on that

well hopefully therell be a leak of the jap version before then so we can know EVERYTHING about the game

Custom Graphs ehh? Good enough!

No seriously, (almost) ONE MORE MONTH BEFORE BRAWL COMES OUT!!! I just thought about Brawl and I got hyper. But anyway, if Mega Man is in Brawl, I won't use him, IMO he's a queer. If they are or shall I say did include any more 3rd parties, it should be NiGHTS, seen the game at Blockbuster today and s/he looked like s/he'd be an interesting character. Or Leon or Ada from RE4 since, you know it did make the Gamecube a lil more famous I guess. Or the dude from Geist.... he'd be better as an AT.

I was lurking for quite a while too before I realized it was gonna take me forever to actually read through the 1k posts. When I finally got around to posting, I had to have my password reset because it had been a long time since the previous time I had posted anything.

But yes; [discussing] the finer points of SSBB will be the highlight of my days up until the day it's released.

I will probably be happy even if they don't add any more third-party characters. They've done such a great job with everything already, and I bet they have a whole lot more planned than they've revealed already. More third-party characters will just be more icing on [a very sweet] cake, so to speak.

Just the ability to play my friends online is one of the biggest things I'm looking forward to.

I just hope custom levels can be used for Wi-Fi battles! Any thoughts/info on this...?

Looks like the online testing has finally tapered down to zero.

This convinces me a lot more than the japanese image that Brawl is done.

What is this graph from?

[EDIT]: I see the URL from the graph background, and I visited the site. It looks like a pretty spiffy app.

do not question drack

he is always right

Because it was confirmed that Bowser is purposely added in the clouds, right? They just look like clouds to me.
