    I've just read this over at wii.com. There's alot of stuff there that I was surprised to hear such as the fact that Nintendo weren't really that willing to let Sakurai-san actually use their characters.

    Makes a very interesting read a lot of insight into the background of the game and what it takes to develop games in unique way that he does.


    I found the thing about character individuality pretty lol. While Falco has been pretty much decloned, him and Wolf are still similar to Fox, while Krystal would have been very unique as a moveset.

    And Toon Link is the biggest clone in the game.

    Ya, tis why I added the (clones...anyone?) cos to go on about individuality and add more clones (e.g. Wolf)... is pretty silly.

    Yep, JB's right.

    My pictures wont appear so heres a smiley

    I guess you're right. Still, the way I see it, noone would have expected a roster like that.

    Ah, who am I kidding, it's a pretty crappy roster. Smilie though the starter line-up is still amazing.

    But compared with how long Brawl will take to get to UK, the roster is a minor inconveniance. Smilie

    I used to worship u Sakurai, but now! Well I still worship you but not as much!

    My pictures wont appear so heres a smiley

    ??? ok??? again.... you people put way too much thought into this... (although i don't see why wolf made the game... he would have made a cool assist trophy in my oppion... also i wanted raichu in the game...
