WII Mario & Sonic Duel Some More

Lately, we've seen SEGA icon Sonic and Nintendo spokesperson Mario are going head-to-head in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. Today, Nintendo revealed they've got some more fights going on in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Nintendo and SEGA today revealed that Sonic, SEGA's legendary blue hedgehog, will be making his debut in the eagerly anticipated beat'em up, Super Smash Bros. Brawl for Wii. This brawling, battling, action packed video game features a varied roster of characters, from Mario to Link to Zero Suite Samus and now players can choose the iconic hedgehog to go into battle with.

Laurent Fischer, European Managing Director for Marketing and PR commented: "I am very pleased that Nintendo is extending its relationship with SEGA in this way and that our gaming icons can come together in such an action packed title. I am sure many fans will share my enthusiasm to see Sonic appear Super Smash Bros. Brawl to battle it out with a whole host of Nintendo favourites!"

Mike Hayes, President and COO of SEGA Europe commented: "Its amazing that after all these years we get to see these two much loved characters compete against each other in another fantastic title. Bringing Mario and Sonic together again underlines the continuing partnerships between Nintendo and SEGA, and produces another industry first for our two companies."

In the forthcoming Super Smash Bros. Brawl, players will for the first time be able to complete in online multiplayer battles for up to four players. The game will also contain an all-new adventure mode called Super Smash Bros. Brawl: The Subspace Emissary, where players can select their favourite character before embarking on an adventure to conquer giant bosses from the Nintendo Universe. There will also be a variety of stages where players can commence battles, including Delfino Plaza, Yoshi's Island and Sky World.

  • But can the character of Sonic be considered as Sega anymore now that Sonic Team is no longer under Sega? By the way, I think you left out the part about Mii character intergration.

  • The Mii character integration is for Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. Although, it would be funny to let people play the game with their Miis.

  • @LeSomeGuy: Sonic is owned by Sega not by Sonic Team. However, the Sonic Team is indeed still part of Sega. The one that has recently left Sega is Yuji Naka, the old Sonic Team boss, but his new software house will be published by Sega. But Yuji Naka isn't the inventor of the Sonic character. The creator of the character has left Sega many times ago, before Sonic Adventure 1, to found Artoon (the developers of Pinobee, Blinx and Yoshi's Island 2).
