Super Smash Bros. Fans Bring Zero to the Brawl

It has recently come to our attention that some Super Smash Bros. Brawl fans are working on some new characters to hack into the best-selling Wii title, and one of those characters is Zero. Now, this isn't anything new to the game-- people have been doing this for years-- and the results have often varied from neat to hilarious and/or terrifying. But this one looks to be a little bit different, as they are reportedly using the same exact character model seen in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. You can see it in its "Nightmare" color scheme at right (click to enlarge), with the black and regular versions viewable below.

And though it has not been said (that we've seen, anyway), one might assume that the same process used here could import the X character model from Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 into the game as well.

As for moves, previous attempts at including Zero have had him use Link's moveset. You can see an example of this in action right here.

If you're interested in learning more and following the project's progression, you can do so at this massive 60-page thread on the KC-MM forums.

Of course, with new Super Smash Bros. games coming for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, maybe we will get lucky and the Blue Bomber will make his way into the game in a legitimate form. Hmm, could you imagine if Mega Man's first (non-Virtual Console) appearance on the Nintendo 3DS wound up being in a Super Smash Bros. title?

Thanks for the tip, Murkman!
