Good, good. Now just announce Chrom (or Tharja!) as the second Fire Emblem character, and you should be golden.

Actually, Nintendo, er, start announcing new characters again, not just ones who already appeared in previous games.

#2 Edited by RogueStatus28 (513 posts) -

Yeah Chrom will likely join after the reception Awakening got. Tharja? No chance, would be lucky if she got her own Trophy.

An epic face off

Was hoping the model would be Lucina in mask.

Either way, the king has returned. And there will be pika-blood.

Nice but hardly a surprise, we know that most classic characters will be back.

Also, i hope we don't get Chrom, it would be great if we get Lucina instead since we need more female characters.

I would prefer Lyndis because she has not been in a Super Smash Bros. yet.

#6 Posted by bbkkristian (14957 posts) -

Cool, although we're getting long overdue for a new character.

#7 Edited by RogueStatus28 (513 posts) -

Shulk

WARNING! CHALLENGER APPROACHING!

(Soon)

You know, a post on Shoryuken said this about returning characters when Sonic was announced. For all those complaining about older characters being in, they'd likely complain about their favorite characters being missing from the last game.

That, and my statement: It's a fighting game, you never know who's being taken out or being brought back in. I mean, sure some characters like Ryu from Street Fighter are predictable, but there was a time when Kazuya and Liu Kang didn't appear in following respective Tekken and Mortal Kombat games.

#9 Edited by madsnakehhh (14491 posts) -

Lyndis was already an assist in Brawl, not to mention she used to be the most popular female character until Lucina, so as much as i like Lyndis, i don't think we will get her in SSB4.

They're using his Retro outfit

Fire Emblem: Shin Monshō no Nazo

#11 Edited by Samus3D (1675 posts) -

Imagine a new X trailer with the name reveal and Shulk for Smash reveal.

#12 Posted by Slashkice (13240 posts) -

That's the wrong Marth, Sakurai.

#13 Posted by Samus3D (1675 posts) -

Chrom and Lucina were the stars of FE Awakening, the highest rated and sold Fire Emblem game. Honor Awakening by including BOTH Chrom and Lucina.

Charizard, Blastoise, and Venusaur were assists before becoming a trio for the playable character Pokemon Trainer, so just because Lyndis was an assist does not mean she is excluded from playable character choices.

Nice! I know they won't, but I hope they bring back Roy. He was my character from Melee.

#17 Edited by madsnakehhh (14491 posts) -

@BranKetra: I was just saying that she has been in Smash before, even if is she haven't been a playable character.

#18 Posted by Zophar87 (4351 posts) -

Marth is one sexy piece of animated man.

...There, I said it.

Alright.

#20 Posted by AvatarMan96 (7324 posts) -

Cool. I want Nintendo to announce some new ones though, ones that've never been in a Smash Bros game before. I'd like to see Shulk from Xenoblade, as long as he's not a Link or Marth clone.

#21 Posted by BigBoss255 (3539 posts) -

Can't stand him, Roy, Ness and Lucas.

#22 Edited by MonsieurX (30462 posts) -

Read "march" instead of Marth,got excited for nothing :(

#23 Posted by Sword-Demon (6970 posts) -

My main is back in! it would be cool if one of the alternate costumes was Lucina

I wonder if Chrom and Ike will both make it in

Probably a Costume Option for Marth.

Ness and Lucas suck, but Marth and Roy are so cool :(

#26 Edited by DocSanchez (1648 posts) -

Is this a gamecube game?

#27 Posted by Kingpin0114 (2599 posts) -

Nice but it feels like this game doesn't have that much hype. The hype for brawl was massive. Then again Brawl was coming off the excellent Melee game while this is coming off of Brawl, which a lot of fans found disappointing.

#28 Posted by drekula2 (1947 posts) -

Nintendo is confirming characters we know will be in it just to drum up hype.

The only characters I see being jettisoned are Wolf, Lucario, Jigglypuff, Ike, and maybe Snake.

Not everyone has played Fire Emblem Awakening already. Thanks for the spoilers.

I don't see where I have posted any spoilers in this thread beyond naming a character who appears in Awakening. If something like that constitutes spoilers for you, then I mean, I don't see why you would enter any Fire Emblem related thread at all in the first place.

#31 Posted by spike6958 (4839 posts) -

I'm hoping that instead of more Fire Emblem characters, Nintendo finally pays homage to Golden Sun and includes Isaac.

I wasn't talking about you. I'm talking about the multiple Marth in Fire Emblem Awakening is Lucina in disguise.

Oh crap, that. Yeah, I found that out before I played the game thanks to GameTrailers' review as well, it was a bummer. If it helps (only a very minor spoiler, actually not even a spoiler, I'm just marking it just in case), you find that out like, a couple of hours into the game, so it really isn't a big deal.

I see, at least I didn't lose too much, still they should have been more careful with that... Thanks for the "explanation" by the way.

Yeah... I guess people just assumed everyone who wanted to play the game would have played it by now, it's been a year :P

But yeah, get to playing Awakening, it is an amazing game.

It's certainly on my list. I've delayed it because I'm still hoping for a slight price drop or promotion of some kind. If I didn't have so many other games to play I'd have already gotten to it though.

There was a great promotion earlier this year where if you bought both Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei, you got $30 in eShop credit, but if you are hoping for a genuine price drop on a Nintendo game, and a successful one at that, it's going to be a while lol. Nintendo never drops prices on its games -_-

Yes, yes there was.... In America.... Here in Europe we weren't so lucky. And yeah, I know, that's why I'll only buy it when I know for sure I'm going to play it next. gonna keep praying for a price drop until then. Sometimes a vendor on Amazon or even amazon lowers the prices for a bit for some reason.

Oh, Europe. Yeah, you guys didn't have that. You did have the 'So Many Games' promotion though xD

Anyway, hopefully you can pick it up on the cheap soon, it's really a hell of a game.

Unfortunately, I didn't want the majority of the games offered in that promotion so it was useless to me. And yes, hopefully I will!
