Classic Wario Persona Appears In Smash Bros. Brawl After All

Wario Rejoice, friends, for it is a holiday miracle!  Even though I was excited to see that Wario will join the fight in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Nintendo Wii, I was disappointed that the Wario depicted in screenshots and videos was the new motorcycle-riding microgame-pushing Wario instead of the more familiar overalls-and-plumber's-cap Wario we've all come to know and love.  Leave it to the Brawl team and director Masahiro Sakurai to go the extra mile, however, as today the Brawl development blog delivered the good news.  Classic Wario is playable in Brawl.

Everyone can change colors, of course. But Wario alone is special... Look! Wario is in overalls! There may be some people who prefer this one. This is the "classic" Wario. Flab is poking out from his sides. Choose him just like you would any of the other characters. This outfit appears after the six standard color variations. Press the X or Y Button, or poke the pattern to change colors.

Whew, what a relief!  Classic Wario is even available in a variety of alternate colors including Mario's iconic red and blue.  Score another point for making the fans happy.
