Rumor Mill: Sonic, Rayman, Birdo Set To “Brawl”

For anyone who might be curious about the rest of the unannounced lineup being featured in Super Smash Bros. Brawl when it comes later this year, we may have already been told.  Thanks to a leaked photo from EB Games, the apparent boxart for the game’s pre-orders features a new array of characters.  The two most interesting happen to be Sega’s trademark mascot Sonic the Hedgehog and Ubisoft’s own mascot Rayman.  Rounding out the list seems to also be Birdo from Super Mario Bros. 2 and the plant enemies that popped out of pipes in all the Super Mario games.

While this image isn’t confirmed…why would EB be receiving…a fax…with boxart…featuring a very-hard-to-Photoshop picture of…Sonic, Rayman, Birdo, and the plant thing on the boxart?  Rumors have been abound for weeks now that Sonic is in the game, even though Sega and Nintendo both deny the claim.  Regardless, take a look at the scan here and decide for yourself.

All I know is that if Rayman IS appearing in the game (given his popularity on the Wii with the Raving Rabbids series and the exclusivity of the sequel on Wii)…I’ll never play as any other character EVER on Smash Bros..
