Super Smash Bros. Brawl to include Solid Snake

At an after-hours event, Nintendo revealed tonight that the new Super Smash Bros. game for the Nintendo Wii will be titled Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The new game, developed by veteran game designer Masahiro Sakurai, will feature several new characters, including: Wario, Pit (Kid Icarus), Meta Knight (Kirby villain), Zero Suit Samus and a surprise character – Solid Snake. Snake would be the first non-Nintendo character in a Smash Bros. game to date and has become a staple of the PlayStation. Also apparent from the event (and the lack of gameplay on E3’s show floor) is that Super Smash Bros. Brawl will likely not be a launch title.
