Nintendo was set to reveal two new Super Smash Bros fighters today, but since they’re Nintendo, they just went ahead and did whatever they wanted to do. Today’s reveal trailer not only confirmed the return of Captain Falcon, but Fire Emblem: Awakening stars Lucina and Robin.
If you’re wondering, Robin is the canon name for Awakening‘s hero character, and yes, you can play as both the male and female version. Chrom was also shown, but Kotaku later confirmed that he is just an assist trophy. I know he was widely requested by Fire Emblem fans to be playable, so I’m sure that breaks their hearts to hear.
