Ike is a starter in Brawl
I said in yesterday's Brawl update that we don't know if Ike is a starter or an unlockable character in Super Smash Bros Brawl, but now there is evidence that he is a starter. First off, Sakurai wants the secret characters to remain a surprise until right before the game releases or after it releases, and so he wouldn't reveal Ike now if he was a secret character. Furthermore, the Japanese site has a banner thing like the one we got saying "Warning! Challenger Approaching!", and it directly translates to "Newcomer". That means that Warning thing was there just because a newcomer was revealed. Ike is a starter character in Brawl, and not a secret character.
