Well, today’s Smash Bros. character announcement was rather exciting! Rather than one announcement, we seem to have gotten four!

In today’s announcement, we saw Fire Emblem Awakening characters Lucina, Robin, and Chrom in action in Super Smash Bros. Additionally, the trailer also confirmed Captain Falcon as a returning character.

In the game, Lucina utilizes her father’s Falchion to slice through opposing fighters. Robin utilizes tomes to send magic attacks at competitors; these tomes have limited uses. Robin also fights with a Levin Sword, and you’ll be able to play as both the male and female forms of the character. Chrom was hinted at in the trailer, and we do see him in action; however, it is unclear at this time whether he is an assist trophy, an alternate costume for Lucina, a part of her final smash, or something else. Right now, he appears to be a part of Robin’s final smash, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet.

Stay tuned later for some screenshots from the reveal!

Greetings Gamnesiacs! I'm Elijah Holt, a Associate Editor coming at you live from beautiful Alabama. My love for gaming started at an early age and has ingrained a love for two different gaming companies in my mind. On one side, my love of the Nintendo 64 and my countless hours spent perfecting the first few levels of Super Mario 64 (I was never good enough to get past those...maybe if they release it for the Wii U eShop someday...) resulted in my love for everything Nintendo; meanwhile, I also owned an original PlayStation, which has resulted in me currently owning a PS3 and PS4 for a few Sony exclusives and third-party titles. I'm a recent graduate of Auburn University, where I majored in Software Engineering. I currently work in DevOps as an Automation Engineer. I look forward to continuing to provide the finest content on the internet to loyal Gamnesia readers like you. Want to contact me? You can always shoot me an email at [email protected]
