    Lucina when ;___;

    • kqk

      She will be an alternative costume or reskin just like the “male wii fit trainer”

      • Bec66

        Really? has it been confirmed?

        • British_Otaku

          It hasn’t been confirmed, but it’s the easiest thing for the developers to do and it wouldn’t be the first time when they use a reskin/alternative costume to have multiple characters in one slot.

          I just hope they don’t sell the skins…

        • Jrocy247

          Well…maybe this might actually answer your question

          • Malon

            Wait, is that an official picture ?

            Yay, Lucina !

          • kylehyde

            Sorry but is not, this is 100% fake. No official word has been given also this pics looks so unpolished, they took a Brawl mood and pasted Lucina FE:A model. Also the shadow doesn’t match with Lucina’s pose.

          • Chaos_Knight

            lol A Brawl mod.

          • Is that an official picture?

    • JoJo_649

      Well, they used his Shadow Dragon outfit instead of the Awakening one, so there’s hope she is an alt. costume for him or even her own character :P

  • Ah Marth looking ~fabulous~ as ever. Anyway I think Chrom is likely to be the heavy swordsman/Ike type for this game.

    • JustThisOne

      I-It’s a man-tiara, okay?! :V

      • Ixbran

        its a fabulous man tiara ~<3

        • Guest

          I think it’s more of a diadem, looks silly but maybe it’s a gift from her sister like the OVA shows… Well, at least he wears pants now :V

      I gotta admit I’m laughing a little at all these screens with Peach posed in… “questionable” ways, like the one where she seems to be grooming Link and this one. It’s not quite what you would expect out of sweet little Peach, you know?

      • Warren

        i know some of the pics try to make her look like a slut, but i still like her and will main her always.

        • andref

          And where do you think all the bowser kids come from?

          • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

            Miyamoto said the only kid Bowser has is Bowser Jr.

            The Koopalings are not his.

        • EinMugenTenshin

          According to the urban dictionary, slut is a positive adjective used to describe heroic women who use preventive methods to fight sexual crime and to keep order in the populace. In conclusion you should refrain from using it as a negative character trait.

          Also, I actually think she has to go the flower and bees way for it to be a justified classification. Flirty alone doesn’t count as it could just be a tease. But enough, you’ll learn more about this in your daily youtube education program.

          • andref

            I wouldn’t actually say that it is a positive term though go ahead and feel that way. Either way they do get around whether they enjoy it or do it for a heroic service

          • That was an intentionally silly response, right~? Because you weren’t serious about referencing the urbandictionary, right? I have to make sure, since it’s the interwebs. x’D;

          • EinMugenTenshin

            1. Referenced urban dictionary for lols, but with potential food for thought.
            2. Throws in a point of sluts not being all bad, and that not everyone who appears to be slutty actually fit that description (as perhaps Peach doesn’t fit the criteria of a slut (jokes of potentials aside)).
            3. Ends with a recommended research option at youtube for lols, as there isn’t any real answer and it is subjective.

            As an endnote I guess it is true that irony is dead on the Internet.

          • I know, it should be obvious enough, but I’ve seen some stuff and some really obtuse people. x’DD
            No place is safe, especially on the internet. 0n0

  • Guest

    Me too, Peach, me too….

    • kylehyde

      Is me or Peach has flirted with many cast members, I mean, first was Link, then Fox, then Wii Fit Trainer (All right maybe this last one was a pixiv pic) and now Marth.

      • Warren

        well you cant blame her she has to look at a fat Italian plumber all the time.

      • Caeda would be mad and prevent Lissa access to Pegasus Knight and Owain won’t get Galeforce! NOOOO! But how does Chrom have blue hair?

  • Ixbran

    Render if anyone wanted to see it.

    • Chaos_Knight

      Kudos to them for using FE12 appearance.

    • Rasputing

      Holy crap that’s gorgeous. I can’t stop looking at him.

    • Vash bane

      he looks awesome

  • Blaz

    Needs more Samurai.

    • Ixbran

      Hopefully we can get Takamaru for Nintendo’s Samurai type character.

      • Blaz

        Definitely more Samurai. Kirby needs to Iai slice a bitch.

  • NimbusStev

    I keep forgetting that many mainstays still haven’t been officially “announced” yet. Anyways, good to see Marth again, though I am hoping for at least one character from Awakenings.

  • Armane

    Did they change his hair colour? I swear Marth keeps looking worse with each new SSB. Hopefully he’ll have a couple of other characters as alternate skins.

  • MrJechgo

    Please make him speak in English this time…
    Also, am I the only one would prefered how Brawl was daily updated? It seems like it takes forever until a new feature is announced.

    • Ixbran

      Chances are he will. The only reason Marth ever spoke japanese in Melee and Brawl was, or so the reason they’ve given is, because the game he stared in was never released outside of japan.

      However after Brawl was released world wide, his game was re-made for the DS and it was launched world wide. So now that gamers in the west actually know who he is in his own story, he will likely get an english voice actor for Smash.4.

      • MrJechgo

        Yeah, I hope so too ^_^
        Falcon should get his GX voice as well… I’m kinda getting fed up with his Engrish voice…

        • British_Otaku

          The voice work in GX was pretty horrid and it has been a decade since that game released.

          His voice in Smash Bros is brilliant and one of the only other places where I can hear Ryo Horikawa (best known as Vegeta) play a role. >_>

  • Göran Isacson

    I add my voice to those clamoring for a Lucina re-skin. Their move set doesn’t seem to be that different, so I am okay with there not being any gameplay difference between her and Marth… though I do think it would be cooler to have Lucina as the “official” skin and have Marth be a side-skin though.

  • ivanchu77

    expected, never been a very big fan of him, but i guess it´s normal considering i never played his NES and snes games.

    Now i hope someone from Awakening gets represented here too

  • Kornelious

    Awesome…Now give us Lucina, ans Chrom!….And shulk while I’m at it.

    • Astromime

      Shulk would be amazing. Especially with his ability to see the future. Make it happen nintendo. Xenoblade for the win!

  • Ed Reiher

    Honestly woulda it much rather been Ike or Roy!!!

    • Be glad we got somebody from Fire Emblem. I’d even take Donnel over nobody.

  • Jettythesunfish

    While I’m a BIT disappointed that this may mean no Lucina (considering) I’m wondering if he’ll have an English voice this time (considering).

  • I get that they wouldn’t want to spoil the Lucina thing, but at the same time that’s a plot twist that only fans of the series would even understand or care about. Fans that have probably played Awakening at this point. But oh well.

  • KingGunblader

    Not at all surprised that Marth is back. I’m assume they’ll replace Ike with someone from Awakening.

    • Prinnydoom

      Given how well it did i think nintendo would be tripping over their own feet if they didn’t.

      • FlobotingIt

        Or their lack of feet in Awakening!!!

        Yeah, bad joke…

        • Prinnydoom

          Ha. I like it.

  • NightzeroAX

    Would really like if they put Roy in like he was supposed to be in for Brawl. In addition to that use his Awakening outfit.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      Roy’s our Boy! Roy’s our Boy!

      • Leon_Tekashi

        Finally, someone who get it. =)

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      nope he irrelevant

      even if he was my top 5

      He serve no higher priority than Ike or Chrom.

  • Jack Frazee

    Awesome, my main from Melee. <3

    Ike was awesome too, but I never did as well with him as I did with Marth.

  • kylehyde

    All right if every smash bros cast member belongs to a class then Link would be a Palladin, Wii Fit trainer a Dancer, Fox a taguel, Megaman a Knight and the villager an assassin

  • XaviIniesta

    I wonder what this means for Lucina’s chances to get into the game.
    I thought maybe they’d simply replace Marth with her and have the exact same moves, but Marth is too popular for that.

    Maybve she’ll be a costume swap for Marth? But have they done that before, where they needed to change the voice as well?
    Perhaps she’ll take Ike’s place. But I can see Chrom being more likely to do that. =/

    • J_Joestar

      Well Male Wii Fit Trainer shows us a possibility of complex alt costumes.

  • EinMugenTenshin

    Did this article just get bumped? :o

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    man He looks sexy as ever…? what hes a pretty man >_> I Demand Lucina as a alt costume

  • $61526767

    Ah, my favorite main character looking dashing as ever. I expected no less from Marth.

  • Jrocy247

    Why are people ACTUALLY expecting Marth to be replaced by a Awakening character? That makes no real sense since Marth is the series staple…Can’t replace him with Chrom or Lucina

  • Magnumsally

    Peach is not looking good in these photos

  • GuyAlpha

    You accidentally posted the same photo twice.

  • Kavyn

    I desperately hope for a Lucina alternate costume. At least give me Masked Marth’s design.

  • J_Joestar

    You know, Kellam is probably somewhere in the background of one of these pics.

    • JustThisOne

      He needs to be a stage hazard.

    • Or Tharja is continuing her fourth-walk breaking, possibly bisexual crush and is the one hexing all the items into the stage.

    • I think I saw Gaius-haired Nah.

  • Xaltmas

    Now that my main is in the game, I guess it’s finally safe to jump on the hype train.

    Choo choo bitches.

    • God

      Marth is one of my mains, but as a man of many mains, i won’t jump on the hype train until Captain Falcon is in, but the moment he is in…

  • KazukiNanbu

    he looks awesome with that new oufit, looks more like a man….a little….but a man nevertheless and i wonder if they are going to include a option to change customes, it would be interesting if you can choose his original nes oufit…

  • fireemblembeast

    Looks like he came straight out of FE12…yeah rub it in, NoA! Anyways I will be getting a Wii U just to see Marth in HD >:)

  • Astromime

    Hooray for the prince of Altea!

  • Freud_Hater

    Am I the only one that thinks it really should be Chrom in there?

    • AnimeRemix

      There’s still time to announce Chrom…

  • mike dickson

    why aren’t u lucina

  • Hinataharem

    Marth is looking beautiful

  • Ixbran

    New screen shot of him, shows off his new design front to back.

  • Gilgamesh2025

    Glad having my fave SSB character back! :)
