Today's new character announcement for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS brought not one, not two, but three character reveals.
The first is actually a returning character, Captain Falcon, who makes his fourth appearance in the series and solely represents the F-Zero franchise so far. His moveset from previous games appears intact here, including his signature Falcon Punch move, and not much has changed as far as we can tell from the trailer.
Lucina, from Fire Emblem Awakening, was the next revealed character; she's another sword-wielding character like Marth and Ike, as well as another much welcomed female character in a male-heavy roster.
Last but not least, Robin, the protagonist from Fire Emblem Awakening, also was confirmed as a playable character as well as having both male and female versions of the character available. Robin carries a sword but is skilled in magic, which appears to encompass the entirety of his/her special moveset.
With the inclusion of both Lucina and Robin, the Fire Emblem series is now one of the most heavily represented franchises in Super Smash Bros., rivaling only the Pokemon, Zelda, and Mario franchises (of which there are at least four characters represented from each).
Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is scheduled to release in late October while the Wii U version will follow in November. You can check out the announcement trailer for the three characters below.
