The Super Smash Bros. Brawl thread.
How many more threads will there be! Nobody knows!
Known Returning Characters:
Crates and Barrels: What better to start with than basics. These item containers have been revamped to support the themes of certain levels.
Assist Trophy: This is the Pokeball of the Nintendo Universe. Any kind of cameo you could think of comes from within...
Known Assist trophies:
Pokeball: An alltime favorite. Which still randomly gives you a poke to cause massive destruction with.
Gooey Bomb: The Gooey Bomb acts as a sticky Remote Mine. While stuck to a character, it can be passed back after making contact with another player.
Cracker Launcher: This projectile launcher isn't as racist as it sounds. It might be more recognizable as a 'Roman Candle'. We saw it briefly in the short clip from Min-E3.
Banana Peel: Because Cliche's work.
Bumper: A return from the 64, relatable to Melee's Flipper item. A new twist leaves this possible to plant mid-air.
Pitfall: The item from Animal Crossing. Surprisingly, it caries its ability from Animal Crossing over very well. Simply making characters fall thru holes or thru platforms.
Smoke Ball: An original item, soley based on obscurity. This item deals no damage, but rather actually just blinds the player from the screen.
Franklin Badge: Debuting from the Mother Series (Earthbound), this relates to Fox's Reflector, like the Screw Attack Ball relates to Samus' Screw Attack. Basically, it reflects projectiles.
Spicy Curry: When a Fire Flower just can't suit your flaming needs.

Discussion (Read: Bitchings)
So far, we've been given a list of series that have been represented, but as we get this list, its come to us out of order. We currently have gaps as shown:
1. Smash Brothers
2. Donkey Kong
12. Fire Emblem
14. Ice Climbers
15. Animal Crossing
18. Kid Icarus
*18 Is the highest number we're aware of, it in no way indicates that it is the final number
These are some things to expect in regards to the updates. The type of updated listed, and the expected discussion that can follow.
Music update - Next day spent argueing about MIDI files vs Orchestrated.
Item update - Someone inevitably pisses off the competitve players with the "Why no items" arguement. Other than that, everyone is generally happy.
B Moves update - People are generally meh about this towards returning characters, pretty happy about it towards new characters.
Final Smash update - 1 of 2 updates people everyone appreciates.
New/Old Character update - Pretty cool to see old characters revamped. Pretty awesome to see brand new characters.
Stage update - Next day spent arguing about gimmick levels vs. Battlefield/Final Destination.
Tutorial update - Boring tutorials, but spectacular mode discussions.
Movie update - Dicks cumming, all of them, simultaneously, with super mushroom power-ups.
