"The one whose Smash appearance has been most desired dashes in from far away at supersonic speed. Sonic the Hedgehog crashes headlong into battle!"

It's been rumoured for a lifetime and its now official, announced today on the Smash Bros DOJO website you'll be able to find a small selection of Sonic screenshots and a introduction video.

We'll no doubt see more Sonic info on the website over the next few months.
