Idk if anyone else caught this, but on Nov. 7th it was confirmed that Fire Emblem's hero Marth is returning for his third consecutive appearance Super Smash Bros.
I'm pretty excited about this because Marth has always been one of my favorite FE characters, and it's good to see that the Fire Emblem series has a staple character in the smash bros games.
I think that makes about 18 characters in the game so far? Seems like most of their big properties are represented.
It is worth noting that so far Yoshi hasn't been confirmed for the game, and he has been a series regular since the N64 original. I'm hoping he is announced, because Yoshi was one of those characters who played a lot differently than some of the others.
There is also no sign of Ness or Captain Falcon. And, there will probably be a few more familiar faces confirmed yet.
