Wii NewsThe dream is slowly fading for anyone who's still hoping that persistent rumors of Sonic appearing in Smash Bros. Brawl were true. As the game's launch approaches he's still nowhere to be seen...
A new character has been unveiled, but it's not the blue-spike hedgehog. It's a much less known character (on this side of the planet anyway) called Lucas; a young boy with psychic power from the Japan-only Nintendo classic, Mother 3.
"while he is timid in nature, he fights splendidly. Is it possible he can surpass even Ness,", says Nintendo.
But as the American release of the game draws nearer, and with the unveiling of a hedgehog-less box art, it's looking increasingly unlikely that Sega's mascot is going to show up.
