Quote fromI always used Roy or Marth in Melee, but I doubt either of them will be in Brawl.
If it's any good this will be the reason for me to purchase a Wii.
Well, if not them, you can use Ike, also from Fire Emblem, who was just recently officially announced.
As for me, I can't wait for this game. I think it will probably be the best in the series, especially with it's online mode. I believe Melee was better than the 64 Version because of the added characters and stages and modes. There was just a lot more to do.
One of my problems with Melee though, was the characters with copied move sets. They were basically the same character with the same moves, just looking a little different. Supposedly, however, Nintendo did away with that and the characters are all unique in Brawl. Some of the new items look really cool too, especially the assist trophies.
