      Best image I found so far is the Wii Fit Trainer with the caption: Your ideal heart rate is: 0

      Can't wait! I love the Smash Bros. series!!!

      Here's hoping Ganondorf and Mewtwo are also in the game!

        those are my top two picks as well... bowser and fox are great also, even though i dont play fox in brawl really.

        ganon and mewtwo all the way.

        i never liked lucario, he was a poor replacement for mewtwo.

      Certainly going to be at least one character from Fire Emblem Awakening, as a lot of the screenshots are in a level from that game. Probably Chrom or 'Marth', or both.

      Killer Characters I'd like in Smash U: Bill from Contra, Simon from Castlevania, Kid Icarus, Sonic, Snake and of course, the ice climbers, Luigi, Jigglypuff, Mewtwo, Yoshi, and Ness. Even if they didn't have these characters, hopefully they'll add character expansion packs you can purchase later down the road. This would make for a most killer Smash game.
