I think Nintendo really kills momentum when they reveal all this stuff way too early. With the game so far away...honestly why get excited?

Well whatever, I'm also going to clarify that Chrom is NOT an assist trophy. He's clearly part of Robin's final smash, which is shown in Captain Falcon's reveal trailer.

Sakurai would rather have a straight-up Marth clone than Chrom playable in SSB4

If Chrom did become playable, couldn't he have just been a marth clone too? It's not like Chrom and Lucina are even the different in Awakening.

If anything, they're maintaining momentum after E3 2014 by making sure the hype doesn't die off before the 3DS version's launch three months from now.

Yeah, he would have, which is why I didn't want him in.

Hmm... I would have preferred something more weird / interesting. I'd like to see a few oddball chararacters like Wart or E. Gadd.

But as a fan of Fire Emblem it's pretty great they included a mage character (tactician, technically). Moves like El Wind, El Fire, and Nosferatu have been in the series forever so this is definitely a good use of IP.

Lucina is way better a choice than Chrom. You'll undoubtedly be able to play as the masked version of her.

One concern - It seems a lot of the new characters have gimmicks. I get they're trying to make it so each character brings something new to the table but it seems many users gravitate towards more straightforward brawlers like Fox, Link, Marth, etc.

I was hoping Lucina would be more differentiated from Marth. More acrobatic and fast paced ya know? Either way, I was hoping she would show up, and Robin was a nice surprise too. Nice change of pace from the swordsmen.

One difference between Lucina and Marth noted by the Reddit community is that either A) they played an unpolished version of SSB4 where Marth had too much landing lag on aerials or B) Lucina's landing lag is simply a different value (most likely A as Ike didn't have all those particle effects in other trailers).

Seems more likely that's just an auto canceled nair. I think Lucina is really just a model swap for Marth and they're announcing her as a separate character for hype.

So is Lucina a new character or a reskin of Marth? On the website only Robin is listed as a newcomer. Lucina is listed with all the returning smashers.

Edit: NVM it says newcomer when you click on Lucina

It would be awesome if it could read your fire emblem save data and copy your character's name and appearance.

Yeah Palutena saved Pitt. Also, it's the captain man, no one stands a chance. I think its hilarious how Lucina has to protect Chrom who in turn must get saved. Damn Captain Falcon is a beast.

Captain Falcon singlehandedly kicked Chrom out of Smash 4's playable roster.

@commonfate: for me, of course, I'm maining Link. But I need a replacement for Pokemon Trainer. It's not going to be Charizard, because Charizard sucks by himself.

I know I want to try out Pit, Palutena, and Robin. And my third main which is Marth, is definitely getting replaced with Lucina.

I actually wouldn't have been surprised if Lucina was just a Female version of Marth like what they have for Villager, Wii Fit Trainer, and now Robin.

That's if Lucina's Smash Attack is the same as Marth's.

@LegatoSkyheart: Sakurai must have really wanted Lucina because Lucina wih her mask could have easily been a costume for Marth.

I'll appreciate Lucina if she's more than just a lighter, sped-up version of Marth. If she is faster with some strong hits I may switch to her.

As for who I'll be maining, Marth is the top one for me though I'm really going to play around. Lucina and Robin I'll certainly try, though I'm nervous about Robin's 'gimmick.' Greninja, Rosalina, and Palutena all are characters I'm eager to play as as well. Out of the old roster, I'm going to get back into using Link, Fox, Jigglypuff, and I want to see if I can get used to Yoshi. None of my friends use him so it'd be nice to pick him up for diversity.

Kinda disappointed TBH. A bit heavy on the FE characters. Wario, Paper Mario, or other Pokemon would have been preferred. Or Zero (from MM)? Or Leon Kennedy? Or Wolf?

Would enjoy Bayonetta, but not a chance Nintendo puts as sexually a suggestive character as her alongside Mario, Kirby, and co.

Yeah, and there's not a single doubt in my mind that they'll make the cut. In fact, the only characters I'd be worried about being cut are ones that were introduced in Brawl.

You gotta understand: Fire Emblem: Awakening is apparently considered the best Fire Emblem game in years (possibly of all time), one of the 3DS's best games, and single-handedly raised the popularity of the Fire Emblem series in the west. Plus, Sakurai is a huge Fire Emblem fan.

Wario will be announced later. Paper Mario seems like a gimmick; I think Toon Link is pushing it as is. Zero? He's already in Mahvel. Leon would be a terrible choice for Smash. Wolf is a veteran I expect to be a secret unlockable, since he's very unique compared to Fox and Falco (and three Star Fox reps is a good number).
