Zebrahead On Wii?

Don't get your hopes up... this isn't the announcement of "Fast Food Tycoon 3: Ed's Taco Adventures"... no instead I'm talking about the use of the love it/hate it "His World" (Matty/Ali version) song in the future Nintendo Wii release "Super Smash Bros. Brawl". With the recent announcement that Sonic The Hedgehog will be joining Mario and co. in the free-for-all brawl (see video below), the possibility of Zebrahead's music being featured in the game is opened up.

As you can hear above Crush 40's "Live And Learn" the main theme from Sonic Adventure 2 is used in the teaser trailer, hinting at its inclusion in the Wii title. For those of you who aren't in the know, Crush 40 are the band that up until Sonic's recent outing "Sonic The Hedgehog" for Xbox 360 and PS3, did all the main game theme music for all the Sonic games since the Dreamcast era. While I admit I don't have much to go on here, the hint of Crush 40's music, from another Sonic game being included certainly suggests that SEGA may include the Matty and Ali version of "His World" in the game too!

So what does this mean for current Zebrahead fans...? Well not an awful lot I guess, except not only is it cool to know that a Zebrahead song could be featured for the first time on a Nintendo Wii game (and hence their songs being present in at least one game for every current console), but also it is worth considering that due to the extreme popularity of this unreleased title, awareness of Zebrahead could end up being raised to a whole new level. Anyone who was a fan of the band before their big break with "His World" will be able to tell you just how much awareness was made from the theme's inclusion. Smash Bros. could be a major turning point for the band. However as I said, at this point in time it is all speculation. We shall have to wait and see... along with seeing if Zebrahead end up participating to the music in the next Sonic platform game as well. Here's hoping!
