Super Smash Bros. Throws a Curveball With New Characters

Today, through the official Super Smash Bros. website, a new trailer was released that showed off two newcomers and one veteran. Both newcomers are from Fire Emblem; Robin, and Lucina. And the veteran was a character that everyone had been waiting to see: Captain Falcon.

Notably, both of the newcomers made their first appearance not too long ago in Fire Emblem: Awakening. Because of them, we now have a total of four Fire Emblem series representatives in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games. You can also play as the female version of Robin; a great inclusion for those who played Fire Emblem: Awakening that way.

This completely changes the way that everyone thought that the game’s roster was going to turn out. A leak published by Gemastu last year (and again this April) had been 100% accurate up to this point. The only characters that hadn’t been announced were Chrom, Shulk, and Chorus Men. Everyone who had seen the leak was expecting an announcement of Shulk today, due to his voice actor retweeting the announcement of the trailer. But now that we’ve seen it go another way, there’s no telling what could happen next in the way of character announcements.

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS releases October 3, and Wii U in Holiday 2014.
