Lucina And Robin From Fire Emblem: Awakening Join Super Smash Bros.

By Ishaan . July 14, 2014 . 7:04am


Robin, the player avatar from Fire Emblem: Awakening will be a playable character in Super Smash Bros., Nintendo revealed this morning. Robin will be a mage-like character that uses spells like Thunder during combat.


Notably, you’ll be able to play as both the male and female versions of Robin.


Additionally, Lucina from Awakening will be a playable character as well, and Captain Falcon from F-Zero will also return as a playable fighter in the new game.

  • Tarkovsky

    Whelp. Looks like the Gematsu leak was wrong. Great to see Lucina. Abit iffy about Robin though but ah well.

  • Falcusprime1


  • andref

    Well Chrom was announced at the end of the reveal too

    • TempestTwin

      he isnt a character, only apart of robins final smash.

  • DragKudo

    Don’t forget Chrom! :D

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      He a Final Smash assist for Robin

      • andref

        if that’s the case, 4 from FE is probably enough

      • I think Chrom would be a better FS assist to Lucina considering their connection. If that’s the case, though, Robin’s should be like Megaman where ALL his friends show up to deliver the hurt.

        • DragKudo

          But in the game Robin and Chrom are like super bros and/or Husband and wife. Lucina can hang out with her Japanese speaking grandfather.

  • AsianDude2o9

    you forgot to mention chrom

  • MrJechgo

    Lucina looks more like an alternate costume for Marth… considering how she… you know…

    • celery

      She has her own page on the website, as if she’s her own character. But it was very suspicious that her intro was “Wakes Her Blade?!” I don’t recall any other fighter having a question mark in their intro. At the time, it really seemed like she was being revealed as a costume of some sort. I wonder what the idea was behind that.

      • MrJechgo

        Beats me…

      • andref

        The intro is most likely referring to the falchion as it took some time in awakening story for the falchion to be awakened to its more powerful form

  • Prinnydoom

    I think I might have scared a few people outside as they passed by my house. Hype doesn’t even begin to describe what i am feeling right now. Bless you Sakurai you magnificent bastard ^___^

  • Kaetsu

    I think they made this trailer for me. The character I wanted most in Smash ever since the game was announced is now in the game(Lucina) and my favourite character from the previous games is returning(Captain Falcon).

  • Jettythesunfish

    Chrom was teased at the end.

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      as an assist for final smash for Robin that is

      • ZEROthefirst

        Looked more like his Final SMash

        • Rayber

          You hear Robin call out “Chrom!”, than see Robin and Chrom team up to attack Captain Falcon. But the real kicker is that, while hard to see, Robin has the final smash aura that most of the other characters have when their FS is not a transformation/animation/install (Landmaster/Greninja/Rosalina).

  • So was chrom a trophy? Or like megaman where he comes in for the final smash only? i did not catch what his role was in this game.

    Also FUCKING CALLED IT. I told all my friends that after i played Fire Emblem Awakening and researched how well it did on the 3DS, that there was no way they wouldn’t get some nice representation. Although i definitely got more than what i expected!

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      yes like Megaman FS

  • Strawberry Starlet

    So… I think, from what I can tell, Lucina is an alt for Marth, and Chrom is part of Robin’s final smash?

    • Looked to me like Lucina had her own move set when it was shown in the trailer. It was too quick and I can’t find the trailer anywhere to check, though.

      • andref

        Lucina has an official character page so definitely her own character instead of an alt for Marth but no page for Chrom

        • I see that now, but as I said, I couldn’t find the proof at the time of posting. That was because the website wouldn’t load or was still loading the Livestream. -_-

          • andref

            I was just commenting, and had looked at the page too when a reply to one of my posts said chrom was just an assist

  • Cazar

    I was really hoping for an FE character that didn’t fight with a sword. Oh well.

    Edit: nvm I guess Robin uses spells. Didn’t even notice him. Wasn’t expecting the avatar character to get in. Didn’t actually see the trailer, is it up somewhere?

    Edit again: There it is now, lol. I should wait more before I comment. D:

    Still would have preferred Tharja though.

    • Its still very interesting what they did with Robin though. Kept the spirit of the game with him running out of magics instead of having it indefinitely. I think it will play out nicely, hell im adding him to my definite main list :D

    • NeptuniasBeard

      Granted, here’s a character that fights with a sword AND magic! *trollface*

    • Dylan Anantha

      Robin is using a Levin Sword (Scales from magic, is a ranged magical weapon) and Tomes, so Robin is definitely going to be mostly magic. Plus he used Wind, Fire, Thunder and Darkness spells in the trailer.

  • Princess_Eevee9

    YES THE STUPID LEAK IS DEAD. And double Yay Robin and Lucian is in! And not surprisingly Falcon is back!

  • Hyero


  • Junko Enoshima


    Please, just Ness.

    • Herok♞

      Ness is safe

      • Junko Enoshima


        Same for jigglypuff, too.

        • Herok♞

          We already saw Mr. Game and Watch, Luigi and Captain Falcon, So both Ness and the puff I am not worried about. Ice Climbers and Rob on the other worry me slightly.

          • Junko Enoshima

            Rob, I don’t care too much about. Ice Climbers, on the other hand….

          • Herok♞

            I liked Rob. But these are the only two I can’t say either way that they will or won’t be cut

    • charles

      More like Lucas, Lucas is so much better!.

  • DragKudo

    Now all we need is Jack Frost, Shulk, Simon Belmont, Claus, and Bayonetta.

  • NeptuniasBeard

    So I guess that makes Robin with body type 2 the canon Robin?

    • J_Joestar

      well it is the default design isn’t it? same with the default name.

  • Dianatos

    Does this mean I can play as my pink-haired Avatar War Cleric with Galeforce, Helswath, and Einherjar summoning cards?

  • TheGioG

    I’m not saying I freakin’ called it, but I freakin’ called it I’m so goddamn happy (I actually handed my Triforce of Courage over to Ganon in preparation for this hype). Not one or two, but THREE new character reveals for FE Awakening. Fight on, you trio of magnificent bastards.

    • Looks to me like Chrom is just Robin’s Final Smash. He doesn’t have a character page in the site.

      • Namuro

        Isn’t he an alternate skin for Lucina? Just like female Robin.

  • Strawberry Starlet

    Y’know, I wouldn’t be surprised if Sakurai had been like, okay random dude, I’m gonna give you some spoilers. I know you’ll tell Gematsu. And some will be true. But then I’ll reveal that I LIED TO YOU. BWAHAHAHAHAHA. Sakurai is best troll.

  • wasad

    omg sakurai trolling us with the chrom release but he’s just part of a final smash…

  • DragKudo

    Hopefully the part with Chrom means they introduced tag team Final Smashes.

  • Tarkovsky

    Hope masked Lucina is an alternate outfit. *fingers crossed

    • Yeah i think thats probably safe to assume is in. Considering putting hats and stuff has always been there, they definitely will give it to her, don’t see a reason not to :D

  • KingGunblader


    Fire Emblem is getting so much love in the game. I love it.

    Robin main incoming! (complete with Final Smash Chrom!)

  • kliskur

    Called it for Lucina, but Robin? DAMN! That’s so cool.I’m glad FIre Emblem Awakening characters (I thought it was going to be Lucina and Chrom) got into Smash. FE:A was monumental in sealing 3DS success. Congratulations Fire Emblem. It would be cool if we can customize Robin face and voice, but it would be asking too much.

  • Miles Swoger

    Remember guys, Don’t forget Chrom. He is playable too :D

    • KingGunblader

      Well, as long as you play Robin and use Smash Balls. :P

    • Lan

      No he isn’t. He’s not on the list of new characters.

    • Gyro Zeppeli

      Nope, Chrom only appears during Robin’s final smash, no character page on the site either. Gematsu leak is deconfirmed at this point, though Shulk and a non-Chorus Men RH character are still entirely possible.

      • Suicunesol

        Maybe they’re not ready to show off Chrom yet.

  • Dark lord Ash


  • C_Diamond

    Captain falcon top tier confirmed.

  • Bandana Dee

    I wanted Robin soooooooooooohohohooho FREAKING MUCH

  • Go2hell66

    Since when was the fire emblem MC called robin???

    and are chrom and capt falcon playable as well?

    • raygunner659

      Robin is the default name for the player avatar in Fire Emblem Awakening. Chrom looks like he’s part of Robin’s Final Smash (doesn’t have a character page on the site apparently) and Captain Falcon is playable

      • Go2hell66

        ah makes sense, i renamed the fire emblem MC ;p

        completely forgot about the default name

    • Yeah I called mine “Tuff Bitch.” I thought it was Morgan when they showed it.

  • SirRichard

    Game of the year.

    Lucina was the one character I wanted in for FE, so I’m basically entirely satisfied now! Guess we’re also seeing a Captain Falcon buff? These videos tend to include details like that.

    • Prinnydoom

      Like where this is going

    • DragKudo

      Nice, we need a redhead

      • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

        Nintendo doesn’t have any that iconic.

        • David García Abril

          Actually, Peach and Zelda were redheads in their first appearances.

          Hmmm… Maybe a skin?

          • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

            Isn’t Daisy a redhead?

          • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

            NES color limitation

        • DragKudo


    • evilkaz

      Thank you horny Sakurai.

    • David García Abril
      • Kango234

        I guess Sakurai figured that fans were gonna make that pic anyways

    • DragKudo

      Captain Falcon: YESSSS

      • Kaetsu

        Show me your boobs!

        • XypherCode

          I don’t think Lucina can. xD

    • AuraGuyChris

      Lucina: Um, would you mind?
      Palutena: Yeah, I mind. Please don’t move.

    • AceEsper

      It’s like a reunion between Lightning and Serah haha. (unfunny voice actor allusion ftw)

      • David García Abril

        Laura Bailey and Ali Hillis FOREVER!

    • Slickyslacker

      “O-ma-kase, GIRL STYLE! Tsuyoi hou desho? Mito-me-na-sai! Ikasama boy’s attack, yarinaoshite YOOO, motto chanto KISS!”

      • WyattEpp

        Ugh, another victim of that show. You have my condolences.

        • Slickyslacker

          The ending shall be forever be indelible upon my memory.

          Hey, at least the opening is cool.

          • WyattEpp

            It started with an impeccable sense of style. I really WANTED to like it. But…the title really was self-descriptive.

  • Cool! Very, very nice =)

  • raygunner659

    So now we all know what Captain Falcon was doing while everyone was worried about him returning. He was obviously terrorizing Ylisse with his Falcon Punches. XD

    • Oh God! XD i better load up Fire Emblem Awakening to make sure he really isnt there destroying the world i desperately tried to save XD

      • DragKudo

        DLC Falcon’s Reign. Wait did they do this because of the Falchion?

        • GASP! I think you are on to something!

        • God

          Beacuse Apotheosis wasn’t hard enough, Captain Falcon has 200HP, 99 in every stat, Uses falcon guantlets as weapons (200MT, 200HIT, 200 CRIT).
          -Show Me Your moves (Everyone is forced to attack Captain Falcon whenever he is in range)
          -Falcon Punch (Kills everyone in the map, Trigger SkillxSpeed^Strength = %)
          – Blue Falcon (Functions as Galeforce, but it allows The cap to fly over any kind of terrain)
          – Falcon Stare (Adjecent enemies suffer a 99% penalty to avoid and hit rate)
          – Falcon Presence (Every enemy is considered adjecent)

          Try to beat THAT you goddamn competitive players!

          • DragKudo

            God eat a snicker
            You act like YVHV when you’re hungry.

          • God

            *Eats A Snicker*
            Nope, still feel like trolling humanity.

    • C_Diamond

      Cap was probably looking for a challenge.
      3v1? no problem.

  • celery

    For everyone saying that Chrom doesn’t have a page in the official website so there is no way he can be playable: it’s true, there’s a chance he isn’t playable. But don’t use that as your reason, because Mr. Game & Watch was shown at the end of Pac-Man’s trailer and he doesn’t have a page yet, either!

    • Bandana Dee

      In the clip where Chrom appears, Robin is glowing, so I think Chrom is just part of Robin’s Final Smash

      • Having watched the trailer non-stop for the last half hour, I can confirm this. Chrom only appears as part of Robin’s Final Smash.

      • HarakiriKami

        He’s an assist trophy

        • doubleO7

          I dunno, Robin clearly calls his name and they’re attacking the same opponent together. Seems more likely to be a Final Smash.

    • riceisnice

      Is Mr. Game & Watch playable?

    • doubleO7

      Game & Watch hasn’t actually been announced though. We can take his appearance as a tease, sure, but it was later clarified that he was only in Pac-Man’s trailer for comparison’s sake, since both he and Pac are the oldest playable characters to be featured in the entire Smash series.

    • 하세요

      He’s a FS.

      • charles

        Whats an Fs?

        • 하세요

          Final Smash.

  • AceEsper

    Our wishes have been granted!

  • lackofstyle

    man now i gotta go buy FE awakening this week…good thing i just bought a new 3DS the other day :)

  • KingGunblader

    Laura Bailey confirmed for Smash Bros. All we need is Troy Baker or Nolan North to voice a character.

    • DragKudo

      Nolan does Raidou Kuzunoha voice.


    • MrJechgo

      As… who? Nolan North as CR-S01 from Trauma Team (an exclusive Wii title from Atlus) would work though XD

    • NeptuniasBeard

      Um… why? Laura Bailey is just reprising her role.

      Sorry, just don’t see the connection :(

      • DragKudo

        They’re friends and are always together in games and shows.

      • KingGunblader

        I was just making a joke…

        Smash Bros doesn’t usually have “famous” voice actors.

        • NeptuniasBeard

          Ah… okay. Well I guess if Troy DID get in, it would be because we got Mother***** Phyrron! Which would be awesome! I don’t think Nolan North voiced a Nintendo character though lol

  • deadMastershiro

    I was going to wait but wallet i need u to push a little more so i can get game. ROBIN LOOKS LIKE A GOD!!!

  • Prinnydoom

    Look at that s*** eating grin Captain falcon has. He’s so happy to be back, good for the old guard eh.

  • This makes me want to replay Fire Emblem for the uh… fifth time? I’ve lost count *sigh*

    • Barrylocke89

      Consider playing a different FE game if you want a change of pace, there’s a lot of great older ones that people miss, especially if you only played Awakening.

      • Hmm I have played Path of Radiance, Radiant Dawn, Awakening and one that came out on the DS though at the moment the name escapes me ( >_<) Path of Radiance is still my all time favorite with Awakening right next to it. Mainly because I can make my own character xD.

        • Barrylocke89

          Consider one of the GBA ones, or even look into getting translation patches for some of the NES/SNES titles. I recommend looking into FE:Geneology of the Holy War, aka the original FE game with multiple generations and marriage.

          • Oooh! I’ll definitely Look for Genealogy of the Holy War! I’ve always loved generation type games. Sadly there seem to be so few of them. Thanks a bunch :D!

          • Barrylocke89

            You’ll be in for a treat with FE:Geneology, I think. It’s my personal favorite in the series, and while it has some flaws, it’s really interesting and unique, even beyond the generation stuff that’s since been used again in Awakening. It also has a midquel game for a sequel which is good fun too, although VERY hard going in blind…

          • Ooooh~ Sounds so fun! I can’t wait to get my hands on it and play it ( ^.^)

  • The tears. They won’t stop flowing.

    • DragKudo

      Roy would be proud.
      R.I.P Roy

      • idrawrobots

        He could still be an alternate for Marth. They were the same character after all.

        • DragKudo

          I know but I was trying to sound cool. :(

    • David García Abril

      I have a frigging puddle under my feet right now!

  • Bandana Dee
    • David García Abril

      Link and Lucina fighting?

      Damn it, Sakurai! I’m already hyped as I can get! If you tease me more like this I’m gonna explode! lol

    • Strawberry Starlet

      Everybody’s fighting and Peach is like: “But dat Robin’s ass dho…”

    • Oh look, a phone wallpaper.

  • Göran Isacson

    Oooh, neat. I was expecting Lucina to be an alt for Marth, but it looks like that may be Chrom instead? Though I see a lot of people here speculating he’s part of Lucina’s Final Smash, which I guess could make sense. I kind of hope her Final Smash is her and her sister and aunt and cousin all just coming together for a big ol’ smash-fest. You know you’d like to see the Sword Hand make an appearance. It’s power might be the only thing which can rival the Falcon Punch…

    Anyhow, neatness all around! Seeing how Robin and his/her disposable spell books work in practice’ll be neat. Kinda wish they showed only a LITTLE bit more Falcon moves, but I guess they thought we’d seen him for like three games now, so no need to show him off when they’ve got two newcomers?

    • XaviIniesta

      Hmm, why do you think Chrom is an alt for Marth? Lucina was the one who used his moves in the trailer. Chrom’s moves were not Marth’s from what I saw.

      • Göran Isacson

        I’ll be honest, I have NO clue what moves belong to which character. Not that into Smash. But since Lucina got so much focus and attention I doubt they’d just throw her in as a skin even if her moves are apparently similar to Marth (which I think would be a shame, not a clone-fan). Rather, the way they just said Chrom would be in the game in conjunction with now they mentioned lady Robin was also playable, lead me to believe that they are both alt skins.

        • XaviIniesta

          Yeah I expected her to either be unique, or an alt costume for Marth, but looks like every move she has so far is from Marth.

  • 하세요

    I observed it multiple times, Chrom is definitely part of the FS only.

  • XaviIniesta

    Wow, I can’t believe it. The one character I still wanted them to add, Lucina…
    And even Robin, and Chrom? Wow.

    I actually wanted 3 things in Smash, and I got all of them…
    1.) A move for Zelda’s Down+B instead of transform.
    2.) Rosalina.
    3.) Lucina.

    • AkuLord3

      Sakurai is Love, Sakurai is Life

  • Hahahahahahaha, I thought Robin was impossible and now Gematsu messed up with the leak. I thought it was supposed to be Shulk.

    I hope we can create our Robin.

    • J_Joestar

      that would be cool, but if they have presets for Villager, i wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t get to.

  • J_Joestar

    Awesome, i called Robin a while back, but i never expected Lucina to be her own character rather than a costume swap for Marth.

    Really interested in seeing how Robin plays exactly with the disposable spellbooks and such. Even part of the video showed him using a regular sword rather than the levin.

  • Codename: D.A.V.I.D.

    So excited for this!!! Fire Emblem is my favorite franchise so I love all the content it got. I’d like to see a SMTxFE trophy too! Add Jack Frost :D

  • AuraGuyChris

    Two girls added to the roster. Glad to see the female representation is growing in this game.

    • Pinkemon

      Meanwhile, Ubisoft is getting more nervous and sweaty.

  • David García Abril

    I can’t even begin to express how happy I am right now!

    This surpasses my wildest dreams!


  • Chaos_Knight

    Too bad Falcon’s FS is not this. :(

    • DragKudo

      Nah that’s just his regular B move.

    • Zero_Destiny

      Chrom’s face.

    • God

      It is, your brains just create a false image of a final smash so your conciosuness doesn’t collapse from the awesomeness.

  • DryCones

    Super stoked!!! xD Do you guys think you will be able to transfer data from FE:A to make Robin look like your MC? Would be pretty neat, don’t you think?

  • Jadfish

    Look how awesome Captain Falcon looks…..

  • fireemblembeast

    :U YESSS!!! Finally a female FE character! Also, 3 characters at once, not just one revealed?! Damn this is awesome! Can’t wait to see more :D It’s a great day to be a FE fan!

  • Weeb

    Robin looks great, but Lucina’s moveset really coming off as a Marth clone.

    • raymk

      That’s because she is basically a clone which i’m fine with.

    • jugss

      On the smash site she has the blue veteran square but when you go to her page she has the newcomer tag. I’m not sure if she’s really a char of her own or maybe a Marth alt.

      • BlackC#Bro

        >if she’s really a char of her own

        I see through your ways Quattro.

        • jugss

          What do you mean?

        • MetalVolt

          I see that the internet never fails to surprise me. Gundam jokes in a smash topic, who knew?

    • Johnathan Lenig-Lopez

      Which would normally piss me off, but it makes sense, as in Fire Emblem Awakening, she modeled herself after Marth. Also Chrom, but since he’s not in this game as playable, that does’t factor in.


    Does this mean we can cancel the Falcon Punch now, or was that just for dramatic effect? The former would be so great!

  • Yindustries LLC

    Thank god for the Captain. So hyped right now, Robin looks really fun.

  • neocatzon

    This is so beautiful, T_T what’s with this moisture in my eyes.

  • Guest

    Hype will never die!

  • Traveler

    Really nice.

    PS: able to change the gear of Robin is some serious strategy right there.

    • DrShimo

      Now THAT’S strategy.

  • DanijoEX ♬ the Cosmic Owl

    Excellent!! I’m getting WiiU this either way. So I’m looking forward to this.

  • Mika Moreno

    The Gematsu leak could still be true, even if they haven’t predicted all of the newcomers. Look at how many it has correctly predicted! But I’m excited for Lucina and Robin. That bit with Chrom was kinda sad though :P

    • AuraGuyChris

      Gematsu is looking stupid by now. They have better chances showing leaks of Pokemon games because of CoroCoro’s lack of security.

      • Mika Moreno

        I mainly want them to be right because of Shulk ^^” but i also like being suprised with characters i wasn’t expecting. Like Lucina and Robin.

  • Think Lucina might get colors themed after her possible mothers?

    • David García Abril

      That would be cool!

      Albeit she always looks the same whoever her mom is…

      Speaking of which, would Robin be her husband/mother in this game?

      • andref

        They do seem more chummy than usual so that is a possibility considering the avatar can marry the children in awakening so……

        • David García Abril

          Well, Lucina was my “waifu” in my game, so in my mind they will be an item here too. :D

          • andref

            I never bothered pairing up the children with the avatar…. it just felt wrong as if my character would be a pedophile even if the children characters came from the future around the same age

          • David García Abril

            Well, thank you for ruining it for me! I had never looked it from that angle!



            Just kidding. Although the mind screw is definitely there, I still consider that he falls in love with her as a young adult.

          • andref

            I understand, but I do have my standards when it comes to in game marriage which has always affected my choices for potential marriage candidates

          • andref

            Now that I think about it, doesn’t Robin’s child mention that her father that she knew was quite old so it is possible that Robin x Lucina is cannon

  • PreyMantis

    This is me at work:

    • Hagaren

      Good! Enough!

  • gangrelion

    They should have Lucina instead of Marth. She could have two modes, like Zelda/Sheik

    • ZEROthefirst

      Yes replace the face of Fire Emblem altogether with someone entirely new. Makes perfect sense.

      • Tienron

        marth isnt like mario there is a new character every new fire emblem.

        • gangrelion

          Marth isn’t even in Awakening, which was
          the most recent game and one of the best selling ones, which saved the franchise. So, I don’t think Nintendo cares so much for Marth right now…

          • andref

            Technically Marth is just not part of the story (dlc fighter)

          • Lan

            Marth IS in Awakening. Just in a DLC map :D

          • gangrelion

            Yep! That’s right! He’s a mere DLC character who is not even part of the story…he should be a trophy!

          • ZEROthefirst

            I really don’t know whether to call you a poor troll or if you’re just one of the new FE fans that only chimed in with Awakening. Either way if we go by this logic of how characters should be replaced then a lot of the roster in this game should be cut.

          • gangrelion

            Sorry if I got you angry, it’s not my intent to troll anyone. I hate trolls. I only think like that because the developers said they have limited time and resources for characters, and a lot of fighters would have to be cut from the roster. Therefore, seeing a new character who is really similar to an old one feels like a waste of character slot, and I prefer to substitute old characters for new ones. And Yes! By what they said, unfortunately, A LOT of the roster WILL be cut,

          • ZEROthefirst

            Ok I see where you’re coming from. Still though I don’t think Marth should be removed because he’s the face of Fire Emblem and has been in 5 main games (2 being re-makes for the DS) and he’s a fan favorite in the Smash community. I feel Lucina should have more or less just been an alternate costume for Marth. Let Marth go between his new and old outfit and have one of the older outfits have Lucina’s mask on. Regardless though older fans get to have Marth and new fans get Lucina so it’s more or less a win win.

          • Cephrien

            He’s canonically mentioned by name in Awakening, so yeah– he technically is part of the story.

  • raygunner659

    On another note, if this is reaching the bottom of the barrel for new character videos, according to Sakurai, there could still be a lot of characters. Cram them in, cram them all in! XD

    • idrawrobots

      “New” I think is the key word used.

  • rinalicat

    LUCINA! MY DAUGHTER!! MAKE MAMA PROUD!! (What? My My Unit married Chrom…though technically in this game she isn’t my daughter…). Also, I’m assuming that Chromi is part of Robin’s super attack?

    • David García Abril

      I’m sure you’re far from alone on this one. :)

      And yeah, looks like that will be the case with Chrom.

    • Pinkemon

      Depending on the player’s choice Lucina can fight with her mother, lover, or mysterious woman/man whom she doesn’t want anywhere near her father. It’s funny how things can work out like that.

  • あっかり~ん

    >Chrom already K.O.
    >Lucina about to get K.O.
    >Robin appears and has to double team Lucina in order to stand a chance against C. Falcon
    C.Falcon confirmed for OP.

    • あっかり~ん

      … so FE Smash amiibos when ?

  • Nu Blitz

    oh wow how awesome cant wait to have a free for all with them

  • 永次

    The good version of that trailer:

    • AuraGuyChris

      Good version? Sir, I see no positive points anywhere.

      • 永次

        Original voices.

        • ZEROthefirst

          Opinions = Opinions.
          Don’t act like a child and point out that your opinion is the only one that matters.

        • idrawrobots

          What were they saying?

        • Sentinel

          Who cares.

        • Ixbran


      • あっかり~ん

        No filthy dubbed voices, pretty much

        • Vesperion

          But Laura Baily and David Vincent are top tier

      • Michael Cortorreal

        For him is, since its in japanese XD

    • Thatguy

      Thank you very much!

    • Are we really going down this road for this game? jesus christ.

  • MaidKillua

    Finally, the one Smash announcement I was actually waiting for. Got kinda sick of all those Mario and Pokémon characters

    • The Watcher

      And i’m sick of all those swordsman characters

      • MaidKillua

        There are a fair few but compared to the number of Pokémon and Mario characters it’s really nothing. Also Robin is more of a mage than a swordsman (though personally i’d have preferred Tharja or Henry)

  • axelrod

    Now I get why Chrom won’t be a playable character: Captain Falcon literally Falcon Punched him out of the roster…I think I’m okay with that.

  • DesmaX

    Oh, glad they finally announced Falcon. Was getting worried there

    • Same, lol. I figured he would be there, but I can’t help but sweat a bit if I don’t see anything official.

  • darn that was pretty sweet! looking forward to trying it out robin more then anyone else

  • RIkuoTanaka

    I’m confused. Is Chrom playable or not?

    • kaisergali

      he is not, final smash from Luciina.

      • ZEROthefirst

        He’s part of Robin’s final smash.

        • kaisergali

          true, my mistake

        • RIkuoTanaka

          Oh, ok then. Never played FEA or any FE series before…. So why are there female counterparts?

          • Bandana Dee

            Robin is an avatar character, that’s why it has male and female versions.

          • jugss

            She’s you in the game where you can customize their appearance,name and gender. Robin is their default name for both genders. They’re like the villager. If you play as the female Robin you can marry Chrom and have Lucina as your daughter.

    • jugss

      Gematsu Deconfirmed!!!

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    No u will get it today makes my day lol.^_^

  • Anontastic


    • Strawberry Starlet


  • Ardus

    This trailer made my day “what is this power?!” “show me your moves!”.

  • Hagaren

    So finally a leak list entry that’s wrong (Chrom). Good. Keep those Chorus guys away and we’ll have a good time. (no offense to anyone actually hyped about them ;) )

    • SlickRoach

      I don’t even know who the Chorus guys are and I’d want to play as them.

      • Hagaren

        Fair enough. Me, not so much. They’re from a game called Rhythm Heaven, if I’m not mistaking.

        • Aidan Gamble

          I feel like they could be really cool if done right, which is why I want them even though I’ve never played Rhythm Heaven. They just seem so weird compared to the rest of the cast (in a good way).

          • Hagaren

            Honestly it’s their design that irks me the most. They look like the most absolute generic base Battleblock Theater character. Yes, they could be fun to play as, but I’d rather have someone else…

      • Justin Graham

        The leak referred to the Chorus from Rhythm Heaven.

        • SlickRoach

          Yeah, I know they’re from Rhythm Heaven, but other than a few screenshots I’ve never played the game. They just seem like obscure joke characters which is why I want them so much. But I could see them as an assist trophy.

    • jugss

      The only part of the leak that I wished was true was Shulk. I’m happy with Robin coz we finally have a non blue haired Fire Emblem rep even though he/she still wields a sword.

      • Hagaren

        Well Shulk has time to get in. October’s still a few months away.

        • Kornelious

          Oh Shulk will be announced….And I’m sure he will be the very last one :D

    • MrJechgo

      Ugh… Chrom IS in the game! The list didn’t state if the characters would be playable or not. The Chorus Men could be Assist Trophies for all we know.

      If you guys are so adamant that Gematsu’s list is fake then HOW THE HELL did he get the Villager, the Wii Fit Trainer, the X/Y Pokémon, Palutena, Little Mac, Mega Man, Pac-Man and the Mii?

      Luck? yeah right…

      • Hagaren

        I assumed every leak character was said to be playable. Yes, Chrom is IN the game and so could the rest on the list, just like you said, as trophies, assists, etc.

  • SlickRoach

    Was never into Fire Emblem but this is cool I guess, since many people seemed to want Awakening characters to be playable.

    • Hagaren

      Today’s reveal kinda makes me want to try Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn.

      • Afternoon Intergalactic

        Radiant Dawn is probably the best game in the series plot-wise.

        • Hagaren

          Well I’m totally new to this series but today’s reveals made me want to play one of the games. I like strategy RPGs (huge fan of Disgaea). :)

          • Afternoon Intergalactic

            In that case, I would recommend playing Path of Radiance first. Radiant Dawn is a direct sequel, and most of its plot requires knowledge of what happens in Path of Radiance to get the full experience.

          • DeadLineDance

            Agreed, if you can get your hands on Path of Radiance (it’s pretty rare now), play it first. It’s the game that made me fall in love with the series. Radiant Dawn is awesome too!

  • AuraGuyChris

    Ha. I knew it. Today was the same day F-Zero X got released in Japan so they needed to have the guy here.

    • MrJechgo

      If that can prompt Nintendo to make a new F-Zero game, I’ll take it :)

  • Bob Slim

    Dang im gonna miss smash bro dont care about wiiu. Well I still got the wii 1 but cant go online anymore

    • Satori Satya

      You can play the 3DS version. Or not.

      Whatever you miss out on, is on you. As always.

      • Bob Slim

        I dont care about 3ds too lol
        1 day I might get 1 who knows im really not missing anything anyway. If only the wiiu wasnt so bad and the games didnt suck

        • kool_cid414

          not to sound like a dink but if you don’t have one how would you know it’s a bad system or the games stink? Just asking.

          • Bob Slim

            I cant believe you even ask isnt thats what the internet for and, I can see in the store what games the wiiu have, It has nothing good I like but smash bros, All these nintendo games im not a fan of too kiddy and no jrps

          • kool_cid414

            Ah, ok thanks for the reply. Now I understand you mean that there aren’t any game you like that are currently out or will be out . That’s fine to each their own and all that. Thanks again for the reply.
            *Edit also the internet is for a lot of things lol

        • Satori Satya

          Well apparently you cared enough to click on an article about a game that is exclusive to two consoles you apparently don’t care about.

          One thing is for certain, we both are wasting time here.

          • Bob Slim

            Well thats because I care the game I dont need to care the console its on and, I never look at anything I dont care about

      • AuraGuyChris

        That boxart is so fake because of that Wi-Fi logo.

        • Satori Satya

          You don’t say? Of course it is. The game isn’t available yet to even be rated by the ESRB.

          The point was that there is a 3DS version on the way. Not just a Wii U version.

  • Kornelious

    Lucina AND Robin!? Holy crap that is the greatest thing I have ever seen ever! :D I’m not even sure where to start on this one……BUT I’LL TRY!

    (Ahem) First off, That is one awesome reveal trailer (Don’t screw with Captain falcon apparently :P) And loved how they used the original FEA CG for it :D

    Lucina…..oh Lucina, It couldn’t have been more perfect that you appear side by side with your husband :D I though she wouldn’t come or would just be an alternate skin……Once again i am glad to be wrong! :D

    Robin has to be my second most requested character for Smash and am surprised that he get in let, alone WITH Lucina! His move-set looks awesome (Hopefully he will have more sword skills) The Levin sword was the PERFECT choice of weapon for him, and having the female version as well it just damn damn awesome! :D

    As for Chrom…..I think Nintendo knew that that’s who we all expected to be chosen (Which is probably partially why they chose the excact opposite) And while it does kinda stink….Lets be honest I think he has been lost under Lucina and Robin’s intro XD He’s with Robin for his Final Smash though which is a subtle relief and at the same time Badass! (Plus can you imagine if we had 5 FE characters! O_O)

    I am in love with Nintendo now after this and my hype for the game is through the Ozone layer! XD Now there is only ONE character that I want that has yet to be announced….i think we all know who he is and i think Nintendo is purposely saving him for last….FEEL THE POWER OF THE MONADO……SHULK!!! =D

    • Linhua

      … If you wanna some Shulk in your Bowl of Smash… then I would like you to read my post up top… it looks like the Great Wall of China.

      … you can’t miss it… lol.

  • Namuro

    Well, this must makes a lot of people happy!

    I know I am!

  • Kroz

    i have not played the new fire emblem but these characters look really cool

  • SetzerGabbiani

    Seeing this just increased my desire for a SMT x FE trailer tenfold.

  • Guardian Byakko

    Lucina was one of my absolute wants in this game. Definately getting it on 3ds now:)

  • Jesse

    I’ve never heard Lucina, Robin and Chrom’s English voices before now. I think they did a good job.

  • Kango234

    When my mind registered who the hell “Robin” was I immediately screamed “OH SHIT”

  • BalmungX

    Man,that trailer was awesome,Glad to see Captain back,didn’t expect two FE characters but they are cool characters so it doesn’t matter

  • Kango234

    That ending was PERFECT!

  • Anybody seen the artwork where Lucina is facing off against Link. The latter looks like her LARPing cousin.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Laura Bailey joins the voice cast it seems… Hmm… That fact alone might be enough to get me to overlook the yellow ball’s presence… Maybe. Since the woman is one of my favorites and she remains a statistical anomaly by being a VA without any bad or even sub-par performances.

    Still no Earthbound representation though. Ness has been in the Smash series since the beginning, so why fail to include him now?

    • Snorlaxation

      Love Love Love Laura Bailey. Having her on board definitely brings this game even farther upward in the charts (at least I belive so). I’m sure they’ll be unveling the Earthbound boys soon enough. Maybe they’ve been altered in their moves, or are gonna show off another Earthbound character alongside them?

    • MasterScrub

      Either that or he’s going to be a “secret” character that doesn’t get announced, like he was last time.

  • MSJ

    OMG Lucina

  • 栗場 江理久

    This is glorious news. Smash Bros, you have too many characters that I want to use. ITS TOTALLY FAIR :D

  • alixraen

    I don’t play Smash that much so I don’t have a huge vested interest in this news, but I am a little sad that Chrom is shoved into a cameo role. I thought he deserved more than that D:

    • DeadLineDance

      Yeah, I’m pretty surprised that Ike is in and Chrom isn’t. I mean, I love Ike, but considering they replaced Roy with Ike, I thought they would once again “update” the roster with Chrom.

  • soulz

    I hope u can play with Lucina wearing the mask

    • 古戸ヱリカ

      Double your pleasure, double your fun,
      With DoubleMarth chewing gum

  • Snorlaxation

    Much like Palutena, you could hear many fans wanted these guys (specifically Lucina) from the beginning. Guess they’ve gotten their wish. Their bringing out the big guns with this game. I’m loving it so much. Wonder if their doing this just for the sake of the Wii U, but they said they’d had all this in mind from the get go. Hmm. Well, either way, I greatly appreciate it. This is the game that’s gonna make me finally buy a Wii U.

    • Satori Satya

      “Wonder if their doing this just for the sake of the Wii U”

      LOL It’s coming out first on the 3DS.

      • Snorlaxation

        Yes it is, however, (much as I LOVE and have been waiting FOREVER for a portable Smash bros) it looks and was created initially for the Wii U. Placing it on a portable console, while it may present its own difficulties, is still easier to make than on the Wii U.

        • Satori Satya

          The game was always considered for both systems. From the very beginning. Both are being developed with their unique strengths and limitations in mind.

          I don’t think Sakurai is trying to “save”: the Wii U with this game. He’s more concerned with making another MELEE and avoiding a BRAWL with this new entry in the series.

          Iwata should worry about saving the Wii U. IMO

          • Snorlaxation

            You’re probably right (about the being developed at the same time thing), and you’re definitely flat out fuckin right (about Iwata and the Wii U).

            But seriously, this game probably Could save a console, it just seems so good. I want it already. But then there’s ‘Prolonging your satisfaction and it being all the sweet for the wait’ and whatnot.

          • Satori Satya

            If they wanted to save the Wii U, they would’ve released it on that console’s launch window. And the game would’ve been not much better than Playstation All-Stars.

            But Sakurai didn’t give a crap about the Wii U’s sales. That’s not his job. His job was to create the best Super Smash Bros since Melee. So he’s taking his sweet time.

            If the Wii U were to die while the game was still in development, too bad. He would still work on it until it was finished. His name is on the line.

          • Snorlaxation

            Again, very true. This is a very Legacy-affecting series, and I’m so, SO, damn happy that they’ve taken so much time to get things RIGHT, and just the way it looks and (hopefully) plays, not to mention the Gamecube controller adaptor. You can tell just how much effort they put. This game might be the only reason I get a Wii U, because prior to this, I just didn’t care. They didn’t do that great a job. But that connects to a whole lot of “Next Gen gripes” and backwards compatability issues” and whatnot. Anyway.

            This game looks like Diamonds on Diamonds, and I will knock children out of my way to get it.

          • Satori Satya

            You’ll be most likely knocking over adults to get either.

            Kids don’t actually buy anything. Their parents do.

            And I was at the Super Smash Bros Invitational in LA. From what I saw, 80% were teenagers (13-17), 15% were adults and only around 5% were actually kids.

            Kids these days are too busy playing Minecraft on PC (or some smartphone game) to care about this game.

          • Snorlaxation

            No i know that, about the kids thing. I just meant it as a joke, that even if Children were in my way, they wouldn’t be safe. Dumb humor. Nvrmnd.

            Either way, Lucky! Did you have fun at the Invitational?

          • Satori Satya

            Everyone had fun at the invitational. I had my 3DS with me and got every dang puzzle that I was missing in puzzle swap. Now I’m just waiting for Ninty to release more puzzles.

          • Snorlaxation

            Very cool to hear. So much envy, but it’s a good envy.

  • Valtiel Ikari

    I can’t get used Awakening characters having feets!!
    soo looking forward to this!

  • Altumn

    This is great! I haven’t played any Fire Emblems until this one and it was great (so far), so Im super stoked they put in these characters. For one Lucina is a awesome character! “Robin” well, glad theres finally a mage like character I know about.

  • Raltrios

    That being said, I had been planning to main Pit when the game was first announced because I LOVE KI:U, but now there’s Greninja, Palutena, Robin, Lucina, and updated originals…
    Gotta learn ’em all!

    • Raltrios

      I gotta say, though…Sakurai said there would be no more clones, but Lucina’s moves incorporate a lot from Marth’s set. The swift stabbing from his Blade Dance and his NAIR were in there.
      Robin looks to be really powerful, but his/her attacks appear to have extreme lag after firing (as seen when she recovers her Bronze Sword at the end, there).

      Can’t wait to see more gameplay videos for more information.

  • MDH

    “Sakurai-san, about Fire Emblem Awakening… should we put in Robin or Lucina or Chrom?”


  • Revolver Jesus Super Pimp

    I’ve been sold on this since day 1 but having some Laura Bailey in the voice cast sweetens and definitely seals the deal for me.

    • Sentinel


  • DeadLineDance


  • Sakurazaki

    I saw from the trailer (in order of appreance): uair, dancing blade (with the same combinations marth uses), nair, dolphin slash, counter(?)

    They all looked the exact same as Marth’s. A lot of signs point to clone, to be honest :/

    • DeadLineDance

      Don’t care! I’ve been thinking she should be a skin for Marth this whole time, but gave up hope of them doing that months ago.

      • Sakurazaki

        Of course. I don’t care too much either and figured she’d be a clone already. There was always that hope of variety that some of us wanted though.

        • DeadLineDance

          Yeah… no idea how they could have made her different from Marth though, I mean, even in the Awakening DLC Marth’s “Lodestar” class is exactly the same as hers, animations and all…
          Still, though. THIS IS GREAT. Now I have to get good with “Marth” for the first time ever…

  • Cephrien

    Dat David Vincent doe.

  • Armane

    I hope you can put Robin’s hood up, or the alternate costumes have different hair colours at least.

    Lucina is disappointing. Marth is apparently sluggish compared with Brawl, which is obviously because of his faster clone. This is probably it for FE reps, unless there are more clones, and it was wasted on another sword user, from a game that was already represented.

    • 古戸ヱリカ

      Hee hee, Robin’s hood…

  • Zero_Destiny

    Captain Falcon punched Chrom so hard guys, he’s outta da game. :O

    • MrJechgo

      Wouldn’t he be excluded entirely if that was the case XD ?

    • Ric Vazquez

      Nooooo (T.T)

  • Ultima-X

    Excellent Sakurai, very excellent.

  • Linhua


    … I know we’ve got a ton of sword fighters in here al-damn-ready… but I think Shulk would definitely bring something different to that table… and i’ve been picturing it since his supposed ‘Leak’… the trailer of him seeing the future and reacting to it… I can see Sakurai hyping the hell out of that set-up.

    … but that aside, I wanna talk about how I see some of his Smash attacks working for this game. Like, all of his regular attacks would be… well… regular… and maybe quick and weak… but when Smashing or Meteor Smashing, the Monado would activate into that glowing blue Buster Mode unleashing devastating damage… making his attacks seem as slow and powerful as Ike’s, I would imagine.

    … and obviously, I see his final Smash having to do with seeing into the future… but it would be cooler if he could use that somehow in his moveset though.

    … I was thinking maybe if he was gonna be able to use that move in his actual arsenal… maybe they could limit the length of it as in, something like Luigi’s Final Smash where there is a field of vision… of course, they would have to make it a fraction of that size and anyone caught in the field of view when he pulls off the move will be slown down giving the person playing as Shulk the opportunity to dodge or counter the incoming attack or maneuver, in that sense, altering the future. And the way the move would work is, once he lets go of the Down B (Foresight) the very next move you input will release the slow down effect on the enemy or enemies, but if you wait too long to make a decision when you have successfully seen the future, the future cannot be changed and you will get what was coming…

    … giving Shulk this brief opportunity to make a decision and only limiting him to one additional move after the Foresight is executed will allow the flow of the fighting to continue at its pace.

    … all of this chemisty (or coding) in under a second would look so pretty on the battlefield I would imagine.

    … thinking about it more though, I find this move would be MUCH better as a B move rather than a Final Smash. Final Smashes are used to punish EVERYONE. I see little point in Little ol’ Shulk needing to worry about all the chaos and carnage going on elsewhere on the stage and trying to deal with it. Give him that little field of vision where it should only concern him.

    … why should Shulk care if Luigi is raping his brother with a Blue Shell and Death Stare combo on one end of the stage while he’s busy in a sword fight with Ike and Lucina…?

    … … … erm… Pardon my math.

    … I imagine this being a Down B move… because it’s something like a counter, but being able to spam THIS kind of counter is a bad thing… so hook him up with a cool down bar above his percentage meter so that players can’t abuse it and additionally, this stays true to the game he came from, what with all the cool downs on his moveset and all.

    … what might be better for his Final Smash though is unlocking his Monado to where it STAYS unlocked for the duration of the Smash Ball’s effect… this way he can run the stage freely with a ridiculously ranged Blade… blue energy pouring out of every crack… one-shotting people off the stage.

    .-. What, it’s a Final Smash. This is totally acceptable.

    … I also kinda thought about his Foresight ability and how he would be at a dis-advantage since other people would be able to see his cool down meter and begin playing with Caution. I was thinking of a way that only the player will know when they are able to use the Power of the Monado to see the future when it is ready. So instead of a visual cool down meter… there could be a unique vibrating pattern that will occur so that in the middle of all the chaos, if you’re catching a lot of vibrations already from being Smashed all over the stage, you would be able to identify the Monado’s signal and use it at will. That, or the controller would pulsate every 3 to 5 seconds in case you missed the signal the first time. Or perhaps maybe even a stronger vibration than the normal. This way, only Shulk and his player knows when they can see the future.

    … apologies, everyone for the Great Text Wall of China. Just bouncing ideas that have been lying dormant in my brain since talk of his addition.

    … but if he really IS coming… that means they HAVE to bring at least ONE of those areas from Xenoblade Chronicles.

    … there were so many areas in that game that have become beautiful memories all because of its presentation… the biggest piece next to the visuals was the music that came with it… so fitting… so beautiful.

    … I don’t care if you simply place us on a floating platform… so long as it takes us around the world to see the sights… and get dat soundtrack re-arranged and optimized for the Smashings~

    … Shulk… PLEASE be in this game… that is all.

    … and thank you for reading.

      Holy mother or tl;dr’s xD

      To simplify things, I imagine his specials would be similar to Karas’ supers in Tatsunoko vs Capcom, which were pretty much all some kind of counter move. Maybe have a chargeable Monado Buster for the neutral special.

      As for his final smash… I say bring out the True Monado 8D

      • MrJechgo

        B: Monado Buster: Shulk slashes forward with a long-reach energy blade
        F+B: Monado Eater: Shulk dashes and lunges forward with the Monado. (That’s a hidden art from the game)
        U+B: Monado Purge: Shulk jumps and make a full 360 circular slash. (No, I can’t make it break shields, can make it anti-Air Dodge though)
        D+B: Monado Shield & Speed: Shulk create a shield for a few seconds. When hit, he dodges and slashes in return (much like Counter)

        Final Smash: Monado Cyclone: Shulk creates a wide upstreaming field of energy.

          … these are all nice but.. where is the foresight…?

          … that was like one of the biggest things about the Monado… he’s GOT to have that in there somewhere.

      Who is Shulk? :<

  • Dkmariolink

    Wait, what happened to the green haired girl that was an assist trophy? She’d be more unique than marth, because, ya know, green hair.

    EDIT: Lyn is her name

    • Ixbran

      The girl your talking about is named Lyn, and shes still an assist trophy.

      • Dkmariolink

        I know, i wanted her as a character though, lol. She looks more unique, Lucia just looks like a female marth

        But im not complaining too much, still nice to have more FE.

        • HershelLousyton

          I’m glad Lucina is in, but know the feeling. *Sniff* Believe that one day Lyn will become playable!

          • Guardian Byakko

            Same here.

  • lex

    starfox reps , C.Falcon-Ganondorf = Well, They’re not exactly the same so i’m sure Marth and Lucina will be quite different besides Sakurai is a great and smart designer.

      Six inches? Are they giants?

  • AuraGuyChris

    Poor Chrom was reduced to Final Smash material… That ending of the trailer wasn’t as good as I hoped.

  • Yan Zhao

    We all knew she was coming. Dont know why they took so long to reveal her.

  • Seth Rich

    Wow. Three more characters. Either Sakurai can’t count or he’s a true showman. I agree with all additions in this one and seeing Captain Falcon return was great. Makes me wonder who else will return with that shrinking roster. Now about those Ice Climbers……

  • Mountain Smithy

    What are all these Fire Emblem characters doing in the Captain Falcon trailer?

  • Anthony Birken


  • Jason

    Is Lucina basically a Marth Clone?

    • Bobby Jennings


  • Mayer

    If you could choose, what character do you want most on Super Smash Bros.? I know what I would choose….

  • Astromime

    Whelp. Seems that Basilo is the new khan.

  • Guardian Byakko

    New challenger! Flynn from smtiv to tease the new FExSmT for wii u! XD jokes

  • God

    Not enough Captain Falcon in this video, Sakurai will have nightmares tonight.

  • If they added Tharja I would probably get this and Wii-U

    • Sardorim


  • Kayriss Wins

    Female Robin and Lucina here I come!

    • MrJechgo

      That can be taken wrong at so many levels XP

    • Sardorim

      Gale Force and Nosferatu Abuse coming Smash’s way!

  • Mordina

    I admit I squeed when I watched the trailer. Even more hyped now!

  • This… is just made so SO MUCH WIN!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Holy……Shit that was awesome
