Time to Tip The Scales! Fire Emblem Awakening’s Robin and Lucina Join Super Smash Bros.!

Well, I guess it WAS worth it to wake up early in the morning (as I usually do). See kids, the benefits of waking up early!

Anyways, both Robin (both male and female) and Lucina from Fire Emblem Awakening (the latest entry in the series) will be playable characters in Smash Bros for the Wii U and 3DS. Not surprisingly, Sakurai makes Robin look like a playable character. Also, so much for FE getting two characters only, or only a third rep. There’s now 4! So yeah, get hype! And uh, hey, if you haven’t played Awakening, go do that.

    Too bad Chrom only shows up in the final smash(?).

      Yeah, looks to be a Final Smash appearance to me. Oh well! We’ll live. I think.

        I’ll live… off the tears of Chrom fans. Mmmm… nourishment.

    Who says Sakurai doesn’t listen to fans? He sure listened to me, after some death threats of course. Thanks for not putting Chrom in. You just made a profit of about 40 dollars.

    • Walters July 14, 2014 / 1:58 pm

      And people say developers don’t listen to those who send them death threats smdh

    Oh, and on another note, I’m pretty sure this ends ANY hope of Sigurd being in smash. I mean, not that there was that much hope anyways…

    I’m so excited for Robin, I think he might end up being my new main.

    • Walters July 14, 2014 / 4:23 pm

      Yeah, it’ll be interesting to test them out and how you can use tomes and his sword. I’ll probably be throwing them at people a lot though haha

        Lucina seems to be a Marth clone, though. That’s alright, if a bit disappointing, I suppose.

        • Walters July 14, 2014 / 6:05 pm

          I’ll hold off on saying she’s just a strict clone until I get more gameplay of her. She might bring something new to the table.

          • Strykerclaw96 July 14, 2014 / 6:58 pm

            But she was a Marth “clone” to begin with.

          • Walters July 14, 2014 / 9:20 pm

            ….You know what I meant! And hey, I thought I banned you, what’s going on here? What internet tricks are you using?!?

  5. Aayai July 14, 2014 / 3:03 pm

    :DDDDDDDDDD Yayness!
    Poor Chrom though… outclassed by his daughter! XD Can’t wait for this! The hype… ahhhhh!!!!!

    • Walters July 14, 2014 / 4:24 pm

      Sakurai is too good for us all.

  6. Strykerclaw96 July 18, 2014 / 4:09 pm

    Anybody else notice that the trailer spoils the fact that Chrom and Lucina are related for anyone who hasn’t played the game?

    • Walters July 19, 2014 / 12:11 am


      (no seriously, I think Nintendo just stopped caring, period haha)

      • Strykerclaw96 July 19, 2014 / 3:43 pm

        Of course they don’t, it’s Nintendo. Duh.

        (Stop calling me a punk OmO)

    Robin’s reveal made me ecstatic! I was so happy he made it in. I thought he didn’t have a chance against Chrom or Lucina, and when Lucina showed up in the trailer I thought that was it, but nope Robin upstages CAPTAIN FALCON of all people! For a long time, I had to argue my case against others on the internet as to why Robin is the better choice, and they’d always tell me how wrong I was, or how he can’t be in because he’s an avatar (um… Villager?), or that I was in denial and couldn’t accept that Chrom is guarenteed, which makes the victory even sweeter when not only did Robin make it in, but Chrom getting disconfirmed. At last, a character from my Most Wanted list made it in, and I think he’ll even be my main (sorry Rosalina)!

    Lucina being a clone instead of Marth’s alt like Sakurai originally planned annoys me greatly though.

    • Walters July 29, 2014 / 4:46 pm

      So am I the only one that actually isn’t annoyed that Lucina’s a “clone”? I guess I’m getting too old for this…
