Just now during Nintendo's latest Nintendo Direct Corrin was officially revealed as a character coming to Super Smash Bros for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
This better not be the only new character. HOLY F****** Bayonetta!!!!!
should have put crash bandicoot in, just to piss playstation fans off even more
Sakurai has a hell of an issue with favoritism that game isn't coming out in america for months, people hardly know who that is.. 6 damn FE characters its ridiculous.
True...it's a wasted spot for a more interesting character like king k rool or banjo
it actually only 2 month
@Otaku 2 month(s) month->s<- month-->s<--
@kalebninja- how is that favoritism? Seriously explain that to me because I am lost as how that is favoritism. @lunatic001- How is that a wasted spot? So you're saying corrin isn't an interesting character? From the looks of it corrin isn't just another typical sword fighter which by that point should reflect at his/her uniqueness. Saying king k rool or banjo is more interesting than corrin is silly almost stupid because you're just being biased and having a little kid attitude towards the fact they didn't announce the character you've been wanting. Even so saying this isn't an interesting character is silly
Their advertising FE Fates by added that character.
Fire emblem is a pretty niche franchise, its had one successful game in a very long time and in a single smash entry received 3 new reps and 3 returning reps while some of Nintendo's Bigger franchises or more classic franchises have had the same character representation since melee. He claimed that the rest of the dlc was going to be dedicated to fans which was obviously untrue with the fact that not only do people hardly know who corrin is pretty much no one asked for him.
I would have guessed she's from Fire Emblem and Google says I am correct
Wait I thought it was a he... Either way I agree this was a waste of slot ;)
The main protagonist you play as in Fire Emblem: Fates for 3DS.
Alright! What we really needed. A 6th fire emblem character! It's pretty bad when this series isn't much of a heavy hitter compared to other franchises yet it has the Same amount as Pokemon and more than the legend of Zelda and donkey kong, etc.
Awakening has now sold over 2 million and counting- physical only. And Fates is already the 2nd best selling entry in the entire series, and it's only been released in one country so far. It will surely do 3-4 million lifetime sales globally. That sounds like a pretty heavy hitter to me.
I meant outside of Japan.
Well awakening has done great in the us and Europe as well, not to mention that the popularity is rising, so why no back it up?
Because we have enough Reps from fire emblem, we needed reps from golden sun, star fox, etc
Sorry, but really boring looking character : / Bayonetta on the other hand, aww yeah!
Whats amazing is how far FE has come. it started getting popular in the States from Melee. Awakening was gonna be the last game but sold the most in the series. NOW WE HAVE 6 FE characters in Smash. No matter who Nintendo announced ppl were gonna be salty anyway tho.
I'm not mad but I just wish they could have used the spot for a more interesting character...I mean there was already 5 characters representing fire emblem..does there really have to be another
Fire Emblem is getting popular right now. Mario has 8 characters and Pokemon has 6 also. I dont see a problem with FE having 6.
The last thing this game needed was another Fire Emblem character.
Not sure why people get so butt hurt over the addition of another FE character. Its one of Nintendo's big hitters again. It should be no surprise the series gets more exposure in Smash now.
To many sword base characters fr fire emblem. They need better characters like bomberman, tmnt or, even that kunfu guy would be nice.
I enjoy using all the FE characters so another one is pretty sweet. Really looking forward to playing Fire Emblem: Fates.
Smash has a crap ton of fire emblem characters.. Please, no more swordsmen..
Though I didn't want another Fire Emblem character but Corrin has a female version and that more females in Smash the better.
Amazing character choice. The salt is hilarous.
