Update: It’s now official, Sonic the Hedgehog IS in Super Smash Bros Brawl.
According to Smash Bros. series director Masahiro Sakurai, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima had personally asked to have Snake included in the previous game, Super Smash Bros. Melee on GameCube, but the project was already too close to completion when the request was made. Nintendo hopes that Snake’s appearance in Super Smash Bros.

The game’s design team is made up of all-stars: Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu has composed the Super Smash Bros. Brawl main title theme, and Solid Snake creator Hideo Kojima will be designing a level in the game, most likely Metal Gear Solid. Here’s the trailer showing the new Nintendo and first non-Nintendo character in SSBB:
Who do you want to see appear in the game? Bomberman, MegaMan, Simon Belmont, Pac-Man or who else?
