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

Recommended Posts

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

 

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.

So lemme get this straight. Lucina is an alt. skin of Marth and Chrom is potentially an Assist trophy or FS related character? Huh, oh well. Maybe it isn't quite five reps then after all, but it's still nice to see so much Fire Emblem love. As for Robin, I wasn't so keen on him/her at first because it's just your avatar in Awakening, but seeing his gameplay again he/she actually looks really cool and uses a whole bunch of magic AND sword moves.

Has the website been updated yet with character slots?

Sakurai seems to want a new F-Zero game tongue.png

 

Also, while Lucina doesn't have a "Newcomer slot" on the main page..

 

 

 

It says Newcomer on her actual page.

 

Sakurai is a man of mysterious ways. 

 

Jeez why is the website taking so long to load?!

 

All I want to do is look at the new character screenshots, dammit D:

 

Because everyone's ON IT!

LOL at Sakurai's weird LucinaxPalutena picture. XD I like how he wants a new F-Zero game just as much as many others do too! *sigh*

Oh, so now Lucina is a newcomer? Well, then that means we got four Fire Emblem reps; Marth, Ike, Lucina and Robin. Not bad, not bad.

I like Fire Emblem just fine and this is about as interesting as I can imagine more reps from that series being (and it's nifty that we're in uncharted territory again), but I'd still maybe rather have seen something from an unrepresented series. I think you know which one in particular; it starts with "A" and ends with "Intelligent Systems has worked on more than one franchise, seriously".

 

Still, uncharted territory means who even knows what might be next? I think in the long term this will be much more fun than if we'd just gotten Shulk or whatever. I do think I'll probably play as Robin and Lucina more than Marth and Ike, and definitely more than I ever would have as Chrom.

So, yeah, I'm completely ecstatic. It does appear Lucina is a direct clone of Marth, but still, that's ideal. That's how she played in the original game anyway. The trailer itself was really about Robin, but they showed off Lucina as well. I am so happy right now because I knew that Robin would be the far better pick than Chrom.

 

Now, people, PLEASE note, this doesn't mean the rest of the leak is false. However, the leak was EXTREMELY outdated. The leak was clearly accurate with some info, and it wouldn't surprise me if Chrom was at one time planned to be the Awakening rep, but Sakurai scrapped the idea. Mostlikely, we will get Shulk and a Rhythm Heaven rep, but this does prove the leak isn't fully accurate, and it undoubtedly hints at more playable characters later.


Poor Chrom, though, his last line... they just seriously hit hard against Chrom fans. Yeah, he's in the game, but he's only part of Robin's Final Smash.

Yeah, I'm not doubting the leak.

 

I mean who the fuck legitimately thought Pac Man was going to be in?

The problem with the leak is they got Wii Fit Trainer and "Mii Fighter" right. The fact that Chrom isn't playable disconfirms the second half of the leak, but the first half is completely valid.

Wii Fit, Mega Man, etc. But yeah, I'm kinda confused now. 

 

So what's the deal with Lucina? I see she does have the mask thing. If she's her own character I guess that's good with me, but I hope she's not too clone-ish.

*Raises hand*

 

Figured as much as soon as I discovered Namco were helping out with the game

Although I've never played Fire Emblem, I'm happy that more female characters have been added and that Robin looks a little different to the usual FE representation in Smash. I also enjoyed Sakurai's little teasing with Chrom, lol. At first it looked like he wouldn't be in, then that he would, but wait he says no; oh wait again, he's a Final Smash... Those poor Chrom fans. XD
