Holy shit. So yeah, pretty much a surprise for the long holiday weekend! I admit it, I’m shocked on every level. I wasn’t actually sure Ike would be back, thinking just in terms of how many characters would be on this roster and definitely following the logic that it would just be Marth and the current FE game that’s around (though the history to say that is short though). Well, I was wrong on that. Even if I was wrong, I still expected a Fire Emblem character to be announced at E3, and it didn’t matter if it was new or not. So yeah, count me wrong on that too. Overall, I was wrong about Ike’s return in every way shape and form. Now that he is around, this probably eliminates half of the Fire Emblem cast (think Micaiah basically…and no not Sigurd, fuck you guys for thinking that and making things awkward), and probably will make Chrom, if he gets announced for this game, the Wolf of this iteration of Smash.
Also this probably ensures a Radiant Dawn stage, but I could be wrong on that. Oh well. Images after the jump.
