WHY IS THIS NOT RELEASED YET?

Seriously, best character announcements I was hoping for. Lucina and Robin and Robin comes in both genders. I foresee them becoming my main for sure (sorry Rosalina!).

I'm still happy to see Lucina, though I was hoping for moves they could give her like Aether (FE: A version) Astra, etc, but hey, she's in. Also happy to see Captain Falcon and Robin.

Better luck next time, Chrom.

What an awesome reveal today and great article bluexy! Definitely a better reveal than I anticipated. I thought we were only going to get one character revealed but alas, Sakurai trolled us again haha.

Lucina looks like she's going to be an alternative to Marth and Robin I'm really considering to become one of my mains. He/she seems to have a very unique set of attacks, especially since they wield a Tome and Sword.

To anyone interested, I noticed something earlier. Lucina's slash effect (the trail behind each sword swing) is not like Marths where it gets progressively more visible at the tip of the sword. It actually is the same the whole length of the blade. When sakurai mentioned that he made Marths "slash" effect more noticeable at the end he said it was to show that was the most powerful part of an attack. So since Lucina lacks that it can be assumed that she will not have the same sweet spot as Marth (it's possible she may be like Roy and have it at the center of the blade but there was no visible difference on any part or it so I assume it's the same strength where ever you strike for most attacks).

I'd like to point out how majestically great of a job they did with this image:



They got the lighting effect on their faces and the colors are configured for the darkish room they are in. It's awesome how much detail Sakurai has put in to this game.

Super cool looking characters, but I must say that four Fire Emblem characters comes as a surprise to me. Marth and Roy almost weren't in the American release of Melee, but look at how much love the franchise is getting now. Hopefully this means we'll get more characters from other franchises...

LloydToS I assume that Chrom is part of his Final Smash, considering the glow around him at that part.

Overall I love the inclusion of Robin and not just because I called it,but because he/she brings more variety into the fe roster and seems to have a giant moveset with a stance system,something I didn't expect there to see after they removed mulit-characters.

However I have mixed feelings about Lucina,she seems to be a complete clone like marth,the official site doesn't even hype her at all and treats her like an old character with the word "newcomer" printed onto their character page.
Heck maybe she is an alternate costume for marth and they are simply giving alt costumes that change a character into someone else a seperate spot on the official site...

I had to look up who Robin was for a second. lol
I'm playing through Awakening atm(first FE game btw) and I KNEW Lucia would make it into smash bros as soon as I found out she wasn't Marth. Wasn't expecting Robin though...

So now Fire Emblem has 4 reps, which I approve of. Not a fan of Lucina being a Marth clone, but I'm extremely excited to see a unique character like Robin in this game.

By the way, I think this summarizes today's reveal.
