I've received an email from an anonymous tipster calling himself "Mr X" (insert your own theme here), he claims to have information on Super Smash Bros Brawl.
Note that none of this can be substantiated in any way and is firmly in the "rumor" domain. These are likely the penned fantasies of a mentalist, and should be taken with BIG handfuls of salt. But it makes for good reading though, so here's what he had to say:
Recently Super Smash Bros. Brawl has a 7 day countdown. I can tell you a few things you'll see when that site goes up - a video will be displayed in both English and Japanese depending on which you choose. The video will display new characters, returning characters, and at the end give a release date.
Returning characters not yet revealed
Ganondorf, Mewtwo, Falco and Dr Mario will return with new movesets; we will have evidence of this in the video.
Jigglypuff and Luigi will not be shown in the video, but will return as unlockable characters (as done in Melee).
Mr. Game & Watch and Ice Climbers may return as downloadable characters later or be added last minute.
We will then be introduced more characters as weeks pass. Different magazines are currently signing on to reveal one character exclusively. Only 4 characters will be revealed in magazines (some in different magazines during the same month, and money is involved).
Others will be revealed every 2 weeks. Currently, Nintendo is trying to force Sakurai into putting all Melee characters in it- which is why Mr. Game & Watch and Ice Climbers could return along with Pichu, Roy and Young Link (Cel-shaded Link would then be a costume)
There are also talks with many third parties that want to include a character still. Companies that could have a character include:
Rumored characters from those third parties that are going around include: Prince of Persia (Ubisoft), Rayman (Ubisoft), Megaman (Capcom), Leon from Resident Evil (Capcom), Sonic (Sega), Alex Kidd (Sega), Pacman (Namco), Dig Dug (Namco), Dr. Stiles (Atlus), Magnus (Ogre Battle, Atlus), Hero from Dragon Quest (Square-Enix), or Crono from Chrono Trigger (Square-Enix); these are only rumored though, and none are confirmed as true.
Release dates that are being thrown around here are different still, but so far we've heard July 24, August 21, September 16, and October 19. It's being kept very secretive, considering the team's commitment and work is kept from some of us in America (the team will also be revealed when the site opens, but do not expect a big surprise); we do not know if these are Japanese release dates, American or both.
So there we have it. Don't blame me if it's all a load of crap ^_^. Then again, idolize me if it's true. Yea, that'll do pig.
