Director of Super Smash Bros - Masahiro Sakurai - is making a guest appearance at Fire Emblems 25th Anniversary Festival.
So clearly this is gonna be the Roy Returns Reveal. So I must ask, and I'm not trying to bring anyone's personal favorite down, a simple question, why is Roy so popular? What makes people want him so badly when, as far as I know, we in the States have never even gotten a FE with Roy in it, other than the DLC for FE:A if you count that. Where does this Roy love come from?
Roy is only really popular with nostalgic Melee fans. Just about every Fire Emblem fan I know of, and other FE fans on the net actually hate Roy.
Roy wasn't particularly a good unit in FE6...
Because he is one of the coolest on Meele. He was the one who popularized Fire Emblem in U.S in meelee. He was my favorite over Marth because of the fire attacks, and because he was more like a passive fighter (Slow but powerful). I wish Sakurai could bring him back. That would make me really happy. @Below I played the Binding Blade, and it's true that Roy was a lame king, but I think Meele gave him a better chance. Now he is so much better in Awakening.
Not surprised. Sakurai is why just about anyone outside of Japan learned Fire Emblem even existed in the first place. Maybe the Roy confirmation will happen.
I want Chrom, not.Roy, come on they already have the character model!... Or Eliwood, he is cool
Exactly. They have the character model because he's in Robin's Final Smash. If he's made playable, what happens to Robin's FS?
it stays the same? O.ó there´s no reason for it to be affected
Roy's our boy.
