Super Smash Bros. Gets Injected with Multiple Fire Emblem Characters and Captain Falcon

If you haven’t played Fire Emblem Awakening, let it be known that today’s reveal is filled with spoilers.

Nintendo officially announced two Fire Emblem characters and Captain Falcon for Super Smash Bros. today. Everyone expected Falcon, Smash veteran extraordinaire, to race back into the fray, though today’s major Fire Emblem injection was a bit unexpected.

Lucina, the future daughter of Chrom from Fire Emblem Awakening, was expected by many to be included in the game. Of course, she was the first character revealed in today’s trailer. Her attacks are mainly sword-based, though it looks like her speed will play a big role during battles.

On the other hand, Robin, the default name for Fire Emblem Awakening’s avatar character, was totally unexpected and is causing chaos around the Internet. Robin will make use of his Levin Sword and magical tomes to fight Nintendo’s best. Robin looks to be another interesting character for fans to play with in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games. Also, both male and female versions of Robin will be available for play.

Lastly, Nintendo teased an appearance from Chrom, though his role wasn’t actually clarified. At the end of the trailer, Chrom can be seen unleashing a devastating attack, and it remains to be seen whether he is an Assist Trophy, or an actual playable character. It’s worth noting that Robin seems to be helping him attack Captain Falcon, so Chrom may just be a part of Robin’s Final Smash attack.

Update: Chrom has been confirmed to not be a fighter in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS.
