Like in the Fire Emblem games (and like the Wii Fit trainer and Robin in Super Smash Bros.), you can choose to make your Corrin character male or female. Several of Corrin's attacks revolve around the character's ability to turn into a dragon, and you can check that out in the gameplay video above (coming soon!).

The Fire Emblem fighter will join Smash sometime in February 2016.

The different versions of the strategy RPG Fire Emblem Fates/Conquest on 3DS, meanwhile, will be available on February 19. The story in the two games will be separate, but complementary, and if you purchase one game for $40, you'll be able to digitally download the other for $20.
