pretty much everyone expects sonic

NO!
nononono!

Yea, I really hope they keep it at just Nintendo characters. I'm not a Sonic fan either.

Solid Snake isn't a Nintendo character. He's already in it.
Personally I think it's stupid, but that's how it is. I don't think Sonic would fit the feel of the game at all though.
He's too... Sega. I'm not a fan of the upcoming Mario and Sonic at the Olympics game either.
Two franchises that should have never been mixed.

Nothing to get your pants in a knot about.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

It's not going to prevent me from buying the game or anything.
I would just prefer it wasn't so.

I'm looking forward to Phantom Hourglass more than anything else.
Hopefully it will make up for how average Twilight Princess was. From what I've seen I'm pretty sure I already love it.

Never heard of that one. Personally I'm looking forward to Super Mario Galaxy. Looks pretty sick from the videos I've seen.

Oh yes, that as well.
Looks excellent.

My wish list:
1. Phantom Hourglass
2. Super Mario Galaxy
3. Super Smash Bros Brawl
4. Xbox 360 + Mass Effect

I currently have 100...

megaman would be hard to fit into smash bros unless they gave him abilities from baddies in previous megaman games.
His biggest strength in his games were that once he defeated a boss, he gained their abilities... you can't technically do that in smash bros since the other characters aren't robots and don't have the chips he needs to take their abilities.

Megaman without extra abilities sucks :(
Sure, you could put him in just as normal megaman, with all his own abilities maxed out, but then he's just a weaker version of samus.
Well Kirby had to absorb abilities in his games, too, but in smash bros, he had cutter, rock, fighter, hammer, and suplex built in.

I haven't got a problem with non-nintendo franchises being in Smash bros, but just make sure they fit. Megaman = ok. Sonic = not.

There should be a requirement that the third party characters aren't bitter rivals of Mario.

Sonic wouldn't fit cause his ability is running fast and wild, while in smash bros it's more like hand to hand combat. Sonic doesn't do that. He runs and rolls.
I kinda understand the sonic hate today, due to how they try to street cred him and all, but back in the 16bit era he ruled big time. Sonic 1-3 are still awesome games.

Megaman on the other hand is a lot like samus with his abilities.

I'm sorry, I have to interject here though I have absolutely no interest in fandom chat about a video game like smash bros, but wait wait wait. So sonic doesn't fit in a hand to hand fight game because he's a runner, whereas Mario does, whose powers include fatness, high drug tolerance and constant failure at saving princesses?
