Nintendo Names New Characters in Smash Bros. Game for Wii Console

A brawl at Nintendo’s booth last night left dozens of gamers stunned – and wanting more.

Nintendo unveiled a spectacular video of Super Smash Bros.® Brawl for the company’s upcoming Wii™ console. The amazing footage also revealed a variety of new Nintendo characters who will be playable in the game, including Meta Knight, the sword-wielding nemesis of Kirby™; Pit, the angelic archer from Kid Icarus®; Zero Suit Samus, the powerful Metroid® series heroine minus her versatile armor; and Wario™, who demonstrated a noxious attack of gastronomic proportions.

Nintendo also revealed that the game would include Snake, the gritty soldier from Konami’s hugely popular Metal Gear series.

Nintendo issued the surprise announcement during the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, which continues through May 12.

The latest incarnation, Super Smash Bros. ® Melee, is the best-selling game of all time for Nintendo GameCube™.
