Fire Emblem Gets Serious in New Super Smash Bros Reveal

In an exclusive live stream event, Nintendo just revealed a few new fighter introductions for its upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. Fire Emblem fans will be pleased to know that not just one, but two new characters from the franchise will be joining the all-star beat em up. Lucina, Chrom, and Robin, along with Robin’s gender-swapped counterpart, will be new playable characters in the next version of Super Smash Bros.

All of these characters from Fire Emblem Awakening will be joining Ike and Marth (Chrom is not a playable character, but seems to be an assist trophy instead), bringing the total Fire Emblem playable character count up to 4, a all-time high for the series.

Additionally, long-time Smashers will be relieved to know that the game’s most flamboyant character will be making a return. That’s right, Captain Falcon, of F-Zero fame, will be bringing his signature Falcon Punch to the series once more.

Check out the hilariously wonderful trailer and various screenshots of all the new announcements below:
