Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS - Settle It In Smash!

Recommended Posts

Seems like Chrom is only present for Robin's final smash and Lucina is a Marth alt..

 

I'll take it.

 

Seriosuly it could have just been shittyass Chrom by himself. I would have taken Lucina as a background aesthetic over Chrom as a playable character.

That was an awesome trailer! I'm so happy right now to be a fan of Fire Emblem but holy crap! We got Lucina (my favourite addition <3 I know she's basically fem!Marth but I love her), Robin which is pretty cool even though he/she is just an Avatar character and omfg Chrom is in too?!

Sheesh, that's a lot of Fire Emblem reps! I'm so happy right now thank you Sakurai. Its a shame Shulk wasn't announced today but this still made my day. Oh, and Captain Falcon is great, as always!

Holy shit this was unexpected, not only did we get 2 (kinda) new female characters, one of which is an extremely unique one, but the Gematsu leak is now genuinely thrown into question. I didn't expect this at all. O_O

 

I can't believe people are disappointed with this???? Why?? I understand there are loads of Fire Emblem characters, but the series is getting seriously popular and there's a lot of uniqueness to draw from as we can see with Robin.

 

I'm disappointed we didn't see Shulk, but I still think we'll get him eventually. I wasn't expecting anymore Newcomer surprises, but we just got tons. I'm officially HAPPY.

Let's hope the official site updates with the new characters soon so we all know what status they have - I'm pretty sure at least Lucina and Robin are both fully-fledged playable characters in their own right, and Chrom is arguably a bit more debatable but the fact they actually gave him a little section at the end makes me think he'll be playable too.

 

Which, if so, would give us FIVE Fire Emblem reps. Holy balls. That gives it almost as many reps as Mario! Sakurai must really love Awakening!

b-b-b-but muh Rayman D:

 

I like Fire Emblem: Awakening, but I'll have to admit I wasn't really too surprised or thrilled on the Lucina/Chrom reveal. Though it's nice to know the Falcon is back Falcon Bust Caps in Asses.

 

That, and it was kinda worth it for this:

Fire Emblem group artwork ahoy!

Pretty sure they wouldn't bother drawing artwork of them all if Lucina was an alternate costume and Chrom was an Assist Trophy.

 

EDIT: Well whaddya know, apparently it is just Lucina and Chrom (and Captain Falcon) after all. Can't get onto the site myself but this is apparently what the updated character selection looks like:

*Heavy breathing* 

 

I'm still hyped, so much win. Kinda unfair they showed the whole Lucina as a character, when she's just a Marth Alternate. But she's better off as an alt. Still a good choice, and Robin (FE Awakening customizable avatar/ your character in case some peeps don't know) is definitely gonna be one of my mains now! 

 

I wonder if he's gonna be semi-customizable as the Avatar itself was in FE: Awakening?

 

UPDATE:

 

Lucina in the official website has her own "character slot" does she mean she is actually a Marth clone as a separate character slot? Kinda makes sense, but I'd rather have her as a costume. Might mean she'll have some differences, and perhaps a different FS?

Not sure why Captain Falcon is such a big deal, I'm actually more surprised he got shown before release, I didn't expect him to be shown until after the game was out.

 

So... status of Gematsu leak now? Seriously under question..

 

EDIT: Lucina doesn't have a "Newcomer" slot on the official site, she might be a Marth alt or something.

I like how Robin represents Fire Emblem Awakening very well: limited use weapons and the pair up/dual strike mechanic by the final smash.

 

By the way no splash screen for ol' Falcon?  Pfft...   (Seriously though glad he's back.)

I mean... Chrom's there. He's not a playable character, but he has a place. So it's not like the leak was entirely wrong. We still have strong evidence for the Chorus boys though.

Don't forget that earlier today, Gematsu guy got an email from his source saying "Enjoy Shulk". Who did we get? Not Shulk.

 

It's validity is very questionable right now.

Yup she's officialy a separate character now, she has her mask as a taunt maybe? and that Final smash screenshot, just beautiful ~

 

I should be kinda sad she's a clone character and not an alt. costume. But the hype and the awesomeness that is Lucina, doesn't make me angry / disappointed in the slightest

You're right, that is a bit odd... but I doubt they'd give a slot on the site to an alternate costume of all things. And besides, look at that trailer - Lucina got a hell of a lot of spotlight in terms of screentime and voice acting. Seems like a lot of effort to go to if she's not a proper character, even if she is a clone.
