UGO: Super Smash Bros. Character Compendium

As excited as we all are for the truckload of new features being rolled out in Super Smash Bros Brawl, they would be nothing without a star-studded roster of licensed characters to back them up. The Big N has got you all covered, with more than 40 fighters to choose from in the latest entry of their everyone-friendly arcade fighting game series.

The combatants tell a tale of the company's history, from Nintendo's early days in the home console business. Even outsiders inform the story: Konami hero Snake hails from the earliest days of the NES while Sonic the Hedgehog challenged Mario's platforming dominance as far back as 1991. For those who have no idea who Mr. Game & Watch is or why people are getting excited over a robot which looks like Johnny Five, read on for UGO's Super Smash Bros Brawl roster rundown.
