Ike from Fire Emblem confirmed for Super Smash Bros.

smash-ike-6

Today the official Super Smash Bros. site has revealed that Ike from the Fire Emblem series is a confirmed fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ike is a returning character that first appeared in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, though the most recent game that features the character is the Wii game Radiant Story. In our previous character polls here on Wii U Daily Ike wasn’t a very popular character, so this announcement is sort of a surprise.

What do you think, are you happy to see the character return? With the reveal of Marth, this makes the second Fire Emblem franchise character to return to Super Smash Bros. with no end in sight to the roster updates.

  • Vorpal Blade

    Rather have Chrom, but I feel indifferent towards Ike being in.

  • Mayoo

    This is like telling your kids that they will get this awesome new bicycle. But you give them a picture of each part little by little over a year.

    • http://about.me/overlordror Ashley King

      Hahah, well you’ve got less than a few weeks to go for a whole new batch of pictures of your “bike”. :)

  • Ducked

    Now just add Chrom and I’ll be happy

    • Niknique

      Yes, Chrom! Finally someone understands how awesome he is! :)

    • TULFich

      I would love that too, man FE has a lot of super great characters that I´m a bit disappointed they are not even assist trophies or playable characters, like: I expected Lyndis to be playable =(

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      Am I doin it rite?

      • Ducked

        LOL! Oh yeah, why not add Google Chrome in the next Super Smash Bros! You could search for any weapon.

        Edit: Probably one of the best puns I’ve seen all week

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          well good XD

            Pale moon?

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            I googled it and know nothing about it besides the name XD

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            oh yeah. i did read that XD Just forgot

  • “Sean” jjbredesen

    I wanted Roy or perhaps Chrome :/ But Ike was one of my fav characters in Brawl, so this is still great news.

    • Nostalgic_Chaos

      It’s still very possible that they’ll add Chrome. They added 3 characters from Star Fox, and FE is incredibly popular in Japan, so adding one more FE character is in no way a long shot, but personally I don’t think we’ll be seeing Roy again in any Smash Bros game, just because it seems like they add a new character to represent the latest FE game, so they’ll add Lucina or Chrome for sure.

      • “Sean” jjbredesen

        Yeah, that would make sense, lets hope, i have always loved the FE characters in Smash, as i am a primarily a Link player, the FE characters are good secondary choices, they do play different, but they have similar tactics.

        Characters that have not yet been confirmed:

        -Game and Watch

        -Meta Knight

        -Snake (will not be in the game)

        -Ganondorf

        -Ice Climbers

        -Wolf

        -Ness

        -Rob

        -Captain Falcon

        -Lucas

        So there should be a lot of new characters at E3, and there could still be new ones such as Chrome and this may be a long shot, but i would love Rayman to be included!

        Also think there is a possibility for Impa, Vulga or Shia and Wizzro from Hyrule Warriors to be added? and Ghirahim would also be awesome!

        • Nostalgic_Chaos

          Yeah, I think most of those will be confirmed. Not entirely sure about R.O.B. Depends on whether Sakurai still thinks he is relevant or not. Lucas I am not too sure about as well for different reasons. Hopefully Wolf is replaced by Crystal or something.

          • abe

            Give crystal her staff and I am all aboard.

          • “Sean” jjbredesen

            I can give Crystal my staff ;)

          • Nookling

            *krystal

          • Nostalgic_Chaos

            Hey, we have a nit picker.

          • David Noble

            Sounds like fun!

            It’s spelled Chrom, not Chrome.

          • Nostalgic_Chaos

            Great! Now tell everyone else that too.

          • David Noble

            Can do!

          • Nostalgic_Chaos

            Awesome!

          • Roman

            Nah, Wolf all the way (totally biased as he was one of my mains).

        • abe

          Bar ganondorf, nes and falcon I’d prefer the others was replaced

        • CEObrainz

          I don’t expect any characters that are unique to Hyrule Warriors to make it into this game, at best we can hope for is Impa’s design as the other representative for Team Zelda along with the soon to be announced Ganondorf.

          • “Sean” jjbredesen

            Yeah, i guess that it was wishful thinking, but Impa would make sense!

            Also there was just released some new artwork that i am sure you have seen, and if you look close you can see Skyloft, when looking at the amount of things that have been released, i think Hyrule Warriors could be canon, and take place in the great war of Hyrule, it could be later, but before OOT. Perhaps the hyrule civil war?

            Also thing Volga could be connected to Volvagia, and that he was turned in to Volvagia as a curse or something?

            Then when you look at Wizro, he resembles Wizzrobes and perhaps he could be connected to them?

            Also Shia (Cia) mask looks just like Poe sister megs mask, and i am getting a feeling of that they are all connected to the demon world.

          • CEObrainz

            Yeah I have seen all the images. On Zelda Universe the theories have been flying everywhere.

            I personally believe that the game may take place after Majora’s Mask where Link decides to join the Hyrulian Army after his adventures in Termina. This would mean that no-one know of his exploits apart from Zelda (which explains why they are close).

            In the game he may slowly go up in rank as his skills proves he worthy of becoming a captain/general. Of course the plot of the game occurs and eventually Link dies. This would lead to Twilight Princess where the Hero Shade laments the fact that he never had the chance to pass on his skills. It makes sense that during a war there would be little time to teach others when your focused on a campaign.

            This could also include the execution of Ganondorf seen in Twilight Princess as one of the images shows the Mirror of Twilight. Linking everything to the demon world is easily possible now that we know Ganondorf(Demise’s?) origins.

          • Officer Raichu

            Im now starting to think of Volga being a playable character i think it can work with him turning into volvagia as his final smash

          • “Sean” jjbredesen

            That would be awesome!!

          • Pablo Lavín

            What about a Hyrule Warriors skin?

          • CEObrainz

            The Hyrule Warriors model for Link looks better than the one currently used in this game imo.

        • Nookling

          Confident that Meta Knight, Ganondorf, Ness, JIGGGLYPUFFFFF, FALCOOOO, Ice Climbers, and Game and Watch will be back

          • Pablo Lavín

            Ness and Jigglypuff are obviously.
            Ice Climbers were confirmed in the Smash Run thingy, where the polar bear apears.

        • MerryBlind .

          Link(s) and FE characters are my mains too!

          *brofist*

        • Noah

          I’ll take Impa maybe, but Shia shouldn’t even be in Hyrule Warriors. She’s too much like something aimed at the SpikeTV audience.

          • “Sean” jjbredesen

            To be honest i have nothing against how she looks xD

            I guess that is what happens when you use Team Ninja xD, still can’t believe Aounoma approved it, would have killed to see Miyamoto’s reaction!

          • abe

            Remember the great fairy’s in ocarina of time? I think k miyamoto would of simply raised an eyebrow

          • “Sean” jjbredesen

            Oh god, no please i don’t want to remember her! She tortured my childhood.

          • Mario

            From the info I found on wikipedia, Aunoma approved this in order to break the traditions that most Zelda games are well known for.

        • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

          You mention Wolf, but not Falco ? And what about Jigglypuff and Wario ?

          • “Sean” jjbredesen

            Please understand i am drunk!

        • David Noble

          Message Delivery: Quote From Below Post

          “Chrome is a thing, Chrom is the name. Just so you know.”

    • abe

      If the pattern holds ganondorf will look the same as brawl. I was looking forward to skyward sword style link, Zelda, sheik and ganondorf but seems were stuck with TP designs

      • “Sean” jjbredesen

        I think that since we are getting Zelda U at E3, there could be new characters from Zelda in smash, such as Impa.

        And there design is not from TP it looks a bit different.

        • abe

          Its modified and improved but is basicly what we got in brawl

          For some Reason this smash bros seems to be more about improving brawl than making a new game. ike shouldn’t be in this, Crom should. Mario shouldn’t have flud, he should have something to reflect the galaxy games. Its the same across the board

          I would love to see Impact in smash, glad to see her in hyrule warriors. I’d be happy to play an impact spin off

          • Michael Ocampo

            lol IMPACT FOR SMASH!!

          • abe

            That was meant to be impa but hell yeah impact and goemon would be cool

          • Michael Ocampo

            I know bro, I was just foolin. One thing though, Impact is an actual character?

          • abe

            Its a roller skating, pipe wielding, Godzilla sized robot fromN64 classic Mystical Ninja: Staring goemon

          • MerryBlind .

            Mario should indeed not have Flud.

          • ShortyStock

            It should at least inflict damage.

        • Pablo Lavín

          Impa is cool.
          More than Girahim.

          • “Sean” jjbredesen

            Yeah, Impa is cooler than Ghirahim, but it would not hurt to add both :P

      • MerryBlind .

        Link’s design in the new Smash isn’t from TP though….. He’s just… Link. His design in Brawl looked IDENTICAL to TP as if they had just imported the model from TP itself. Here, he looks different from TP. Not the same shading, not hte same face, not the same colours, etc.

        • greengecko007

          It’s still the same design, even if it looks slightly different. Toon Link’s Brawl model wasn’t the exact same model from Wind Waker or the other games Toon Link is used in. He is much more detailed with different shading in Brawl, but it’s still the same character design.

          • David Noble

            It would be pretty hard to use a Skyward Sword version of Ganondorf, I guess… ;)

          • greengecko007

            HA! Yeah, I didn’t even realize that he hasn’t been in any new Zelda games since Twilight Princess. It’s crazy how that was so long ago though.

          • abe

            Well we did get a twilight princess sheik last time.

          • David Noble

            Point very much taken.

      • companyoflosers

        You say that like its a bad thing. TP princess designs were great!

        • abe

          They was great. I was looking forward to seeing a less formal Zelda. And a skyward sword style sheik

    • Joel Cruz

      rob is gay especially his final smash but i agree with ganon,falcon,ans ness

      • “Sean” jjbredesen

        Well i enjoyed ROB he was one of the ten i used the most, but if that is your opinion then so be it.

      • Pablo Lavín

        I liked Rob, a good troll. Maybe he is making into the game, because all the veteran trolls appeared on Brawl, y’know, G and W, Jiggly. So, if Wii Fit Trainer is a Troll, and Jiggly is confirmed,y u no put GW and ROB?

  • Will the3rd

    This can rather mean that they may consider using him in another FE or nothing.
    And it also means that there will be three FE characters in this SSB.

  • Officer Raichu

    im not really a fan of ike(my main was game and watch)
    but i heard hes good and its good that he is returning
    now we need chrome then were shaking

    • David Noble

      Chrome is a thing, Chrom is the name. Just so you know.

      • Officer Raichu

        oh wow i misspelled it XD

        • David Noble

          Not really a problem, but it’ll look better in the future. :)

  • Nostalgic_Chaos

    Not sure how I feel about this if I’m completely honest. I’m mixed.

    It’s not that I have something personal against Ike as a character, I am just someone who is completely against character abuse, especially in fighting games. Rookies blatantly used Ike just for the sake of his super powerful smash attacks. They had no skill with him whatsoever.

    I respect Ike users who are actually good with Ike and know how to use him.

    People did the same with Meta Knight, it was too easy for rookies to abuse certain aspects with him as a character.

    I really didn’t think they would bring Ike back actually, just because so many people complained about him being OP, and to some extent I agree with it. I used to use Ike when Brawl first came out. I loved how he felt. I enjoy his air attacks, but when I realised noobs abusing him, it put me off and I stopped using him.

    He’s in the game now and it is what it is. It’s not the end of the world. His new design does look cool, though, you have to admit.
    The fact that they brought Ike back makes me think of other character possibilities as well then, because I genuinely didn’t think Sakurai would throw him back in the roster. Was quite shocked actually.

    • “Sean” jjbredesen

      I agree, but i loved to use him xD, Sakurai is trying to balance the game, so i think he will be refined for this game, so that he is not to powerful.

      • Nostalgic_Chaos

        Yeah, he’s not a bad character, they just definitely need to nerf his smash attacks a bit and he’ll be fine. His forward smash was really the main thing that bothered me in Brawl, and his forward A attack was a bit OP as well.

        • CEObrainz

          Sakurai needs to make his second jump better, which would make me and a lot of Ike mains happy, as it stands Ike is not terribly easy to do well competitively. If they reduced the power/knock-back of his moves and also cut back on the end lag for them he’d be a much better character.

          • longschlongsilver

            I just hope they don’t get rid of his back air and his down air spike. Ive caused too many ragequits to count with those two moves alone

          • CEObrainz

            His back air was one of his best moves but the down air’s a different story. It’s an easy move to use but once your opponent knows how it works, it hardly hits. I prefers Marth’s one which is faster and less predictable.

        • Nookling

          I think it’s fine if rookies can abuse special attributes to character. Meta Knight was a different story (being basically broken) but Ike’s power is fine. It’s annoying that somebody could smash you when they first pick up the controller with him but we should be able to beat them with skill

          • Nostalgic_Chaos

            I can beat Ike players with skill, whether they’re veteran or a rookie. I guess I’m just talking about instances where, perhaps a Pokemon puts you to sleep. Some rookie charges up Ike’s forward smash and you go flying right off the stage when you’re only on like %40 damage. You don’t even have to be asleep for that to happen. There are just too many ways for people to abuse him. A nerf is in order.

            And yeah I agree. Meta Knight was broken as hell.

          • Nookling

            Shouldn’t they be able to kill you if you’re asleep?…

          • Nostalgic_Chaos

            Of course… I’m talking about Ike specifically, and how he just needs to be nerfd in general and how you only need to be a low percentage to go flying off the stage. He was just too much in Brawl.

        • Nookling

          And he isn’t ranked very highly

        • Michael Ocampo

          Why should they nerf his attacks just to applease the OP criers? If you’re good enough at the game, you can dodge his attacks although powerful, they’re slow.

          • Nostalgic_Chaos

            Yes, if you’re playing 1 vs 1, you can easily dodge his attacks, but when you’re playing with 4 random people on a tight stage with items, it’s too much of a cluster fuck and noobs will abuse Ike just by being under pressure. He needs to be nerfd, even if it’s just a little bit. When it’s a 4 player cluster fuck, sometimes skill goes out of the window. Anyone wins, it can’t be helped sometimes. I’m first hand experience of that. I’d call myself a veteran, play in tourney’s bla bla bla.

            Whether you’re a pro or not, anyone will tell you that a raondom 4 player battle, a small stage with items is too unpredictable, whether you’re a pro or not.

    • MerryBlind .

      Brawl is known to be incredibly badly balanced. The new Smash is supposed to be much more balanced, in the same vein as Melee, so your concerns are no concerns after all! (hopefully)

      • Nostalgic_Chaos

        Seems like the generation of ‘fine balancing’ Haha. What with Mario Kart 8 and all.

        • MerryBlind .

          haha true that! In fact, in the case of Nintendo, it’s the generation of ‘refinement’ all around!

          • Nostalgic_Chaos

            Yep.

      • Pablo Lavín

        Wasn’t the Most Balanced SSB64? Because I think SSB4 has the gameplay like SSB64

        • MerryBlind .

          Maybe… It’s just that Melee is generally considered the Smash Bros. reference in terms of balance and complexity, but maybe Smash 64 was just as balanced.

          I still find Smash 64 the most fun of the bunch though. I still play it to this day, and I have actually just played it 2 days ago. Its only flaw really is having so few characters. Link is such a beast in this one, and Ness is so much fun. Really the feeling of that game is just amazing. It’s just pure FUN.

    • greengecko007

      Smash tierists actually place Ike in the lower tiers. From my personal experience, Ike was a character that was harder to use. Sure, maybe some people liked his high damaging attacks, but they were definitely on the slow side, and very predictable.

  • Jackson five

    The more the merrier. Keep on announcing playable characters and that’s cool with me.

  • Nookling

    As long as Chrom still makes it this is cool! And this shows me Sakurai really wants all the characters to come back that he can get

  • MerryBlind .

    Ike is awesome. I like him much more than Marth actually, but I still played Marth more since he’s the better character overall. Hopefully all characters will be fairly balanced in this one so that you can REALLY choose the ones you like.

    I know people want variety, and I agree too, but in this case, I think having Roy too would be pretty sick, IF Sakurai manage to make all 3 feel drastically different from each other.

    I haven’t tried Project M yet for Brawl, but I want to if only to see how they’ve balanced and tweaked Marth/Roy/Ike. (yes they have added Roy back for those who don’t know)

    • MerryBlind .

      Even if all 3 are look-alikes/clones, they can be very different in playstyles:

      -Marth is super fast, but super weak, light, and agile all around, but with short range and bad special attacks. He thus relies on long combos, aerial attacks, and movement to do damage.

      -Ike is the opposite: super slow, but super powerful with long range, heavy, and slow all around and alright special attacks. He relies on keeping distance, positioning, and landing powerful blows.

      -Roy is in between: not too slow, not too quick, his attacks have impact but not much damage, better aerial moves and lighter than Ike, but still average, however he could have very powerful special attacks (fire) compared to the other 2. So he would be o.k. all around, but he where he would really shine is with special attacks, recovery, and whatnot.

  • J_Joestar

    Well we did keep Lucario so this probably shouldn’t be as big of a surprise as it would have been previously.

  • Jeremy Baker

    Welcome back ike

  • Guest

    He is not a super popular character

  • Sofia Caden

    I hope the bring snake and sonic back http://bit.ly/1m1UDt7

    • Nostalgic_Chaos

      Sonic was confirmed ages ago. Where have you been? :p

      • http://Website.com Shane Michaels

        Spamming, is where she’s been.

        • Nostalgic_Chaos

          Haha

  • Santiago

    “Ike wasn’t a very popular character”… Then again, Captain Falcon is more popular for being on SSB than FZ

  • Sdudyoy

    Although I never play as him, he is my brothers favorite character, so He’s happy.

  • LevenThumps

    Ike was one of the characters I thought would be cut, if any were cut, from the new Smash Bros. Now that he’s confirmed, I think any veteran has a fair shot in coming back for the new Smash Bros., with the only exception I can think of being Squirtle and Ivysaur.

    • Fierce-Deity Link

      i hope that’s not the case… r.o.b. needs to go… i really don’t see why anyone wants him in tbh.. i’d say game and watch as well, but he has been there since melee so it would be weird to cut him now… also, i’d say wolf needs to go as well unless they tweak his special moves.. his b attacks are too much like fox and falco..

      • LevenThumps

        Completely agree about Wolf. I know that competitive players argue that Wolf’s moves have a different play style, but he was too similar for me (especially his final smash).

        I don’t mind R.O.B. or Game and Watch coming back. I didn’t use them that much, but they had unique movesets, and I didn’t hate them.

  • XelaFury

    Ike looks more like an adult now, and his design looks really cool. Now, what’s up with those muscles?

    • Zanzama

      It’s based on his appearence in FE: Radiant Dawn

    • MerryBlind .

      His appearance now contrasts more with Marth’s just like their strengths and weaknesses do. Ike is the beefier, slower, more powerful one; Marth is the weaker, swifter, more agile one.

      Now if only there was one just in between but huh?…….

      *COUGH* Roy *COUGH* or Chrom *COUGH* *COUGH*.

    YEAH!!!! I just recently started using Ike in Brawl, and um…well, [IMG] [URL='http://troll.me?p=331434']http://troll.me/images/bert/now-i-am-become-death-the-destroyer-of-worlds.jpg[/IMG]

    • Mario

      You don’t scare me. -_-

      • Dark Lord Sauron

        you can not hide mario i see you there is no life in this world but only death and i will crush you like i did with gandalf

        • Mario

          NEVEEEEEEEEEEERRR!!!!

  • Ryushi

    I know people don’t really want clones – but I really was hoping for Roy or Chrom to replace Ike .-.

    • Fierce-Deity Link

      chrom isn’t like marth at all… so he wouldn’t have been a clone character..

      • Ryushi

        Please tell me you knew when I said “clone” I meant Roy…
        Also chrom was in my comment as an alternative for an entirely new Fire emblem character my post was just jumbled.

        • Fierce-Deity Link

          i’m pretty sure i replied when it was really late in my timezone lol.. for some reason i thought you meant chrom would be a clone.. my bad.. and roy could be unique, but it’s too late for him.. might i suggest you play project m? it has roy and he is updated

          • Ryushi

            I already do play Project M. Roy is and has been my main since Melee.

          • Fierce-Deity Link

            roy main for melee.. must be tough… he’s not really all that good… he can’t combo that well unfortunately.. in pm he is a lot better… maybe as dlc we can get roy in ssb 4

  • Rinslowe

    The kitchen sink confirmed for Smash Bros… :)

    I really hope they don’t put the Marth character in. She’s just not needed. The Lucas character also isn’t needed if the Ness character, who is more powerful and more confident, is in the game.
    Same with the Kirby character and King Dedede character (keep the Kirby character though since he’s more powerful and the best character to ever touch the Super Smash Bros. franchise).

    I like the characters just like any of you do, but I’d prefer completely new characters as opposed to pretty much clone characters. They could put in other characters from a franchise or maybe unseen new characters or maybe more 3rd party characters.

    I get that they don’t want to risk taking out characters people have come to love and get really good with, but if you’re just going to play as the same character, you’re just buying a $40 and/or $60 move set DLC.

    Does “character” not sound like a word anymore?

    • MerryBlind .

      Character.

      By the way, Marth is already in.

      Also, Marth is a he, not a she (lol).

      Sure more variety is better, however, “clones” are, in theory, less work to make thann entirely new characters, so I think clones should stay, but the total roster of characters should just get larger.

      Lastly, characters.

        Marth is a GUY?!

        I’ve been Brawling for YEARS. I thought he was a she.

        WTF?!

        Why do cartoon Japanese dudes look so feminine?

        • MerryBlind .

          Don’t worry dude, everybody agrees Marth looks quite feminine.

          • Fierce-Deity Link

            i wouldn’t say everyone.. when i first played melee and he was a challenger i didn’t think he looked like a chick.. nd i was 12 or 11 lol

          • Mario

            Neither did I. :-/

          • MerryBlind .

            Well I’ve always known he was a guy, but you can’t say he doesn’t look feminine compared to Roy or Ike.

        • watchin

          how the hell did you not know !? sure he looks a little feminine, but you can definitely tell he’s a male. he doesn’t sound like a female either

          • bizzy gie

            He has NO lines in Brawl. I barely played as him.

          • watchin

            the japanese shit he say’s doesn’t sound like a female VA . and saying you haven’t played as him is unacceptable it only took me 2 years when I was a kid to figure out Link named wasn’t Zelda and that he was actually a Male. its been since melee (2002) when marth was introduce its been over a decade and then some; and you still couldn’t tell?! something is wrong…

          • bizzy gie

            I only found out about Marth’s existence in Brawl (2008).

            He has a girly hairstyle and Marth is terribly close to Martha.

          • watchin

            lol. I’m not sure on the hairstyle, but I have never mistaken his name for Martha. but I want to ask just for closure. are you really saying you just found out what it was.. 2 days ago that you found out marth was a male? even though its been 6 years since brawl?!

          • bizzy gie

            I never mistook his name for Martha either. I’m just stating that it’s close so I automatically associate the name Marth with femininity.

            I got Brawl (and Wii) in 2010.

    • Fierce-Deity Link

      marth is the original from fire emblem.. fail to see how he is a clone.. if anything, roy was the clone… and lol at kirby being the best character in smash.. he was only good in the original.. i still like him though.. and king dedede is hardly like kirby so he should be in.. and he is a villain, sort of, and we need more of them… and new characters? they have added rosalina who plays way different from everyone… little mac who has his own meter.. and wii fit trainer, who again, is way different.. there are new characters… and old characters are getting buffs and tweaks.. not sure what the problem is.. and no.. we don’t need more 3rd party unless it’s someone like simon belmont.. this is a nintendo game after all

      • David Noble

        He means Lucina. If you don’t know her, check out Fire Emblem Awakening.

        • Fierce-Deity Link

          well, he said the marth character lol.. and lucina can just be a skin of chrom or even marth.. it would be wise to add her as that.. i mean, if the villager has alternate costumes, and so does the wii fit trainer then why not marth or chrom?

      • bizzy gie

        Sure Ike/Marth, Kirby/King, and Lucas/Ness move sets aren’t identical, but there are a lot of similarities between them.

        You probably don’t play with him much, but Kirby can fly, has an invincibility mode which doubles as an attack, and can take other people’s powers.

        I already know about the new characters, but I was stating that more new characters should be in their place.

        What about Bayonetta? That’d be a fitting addition to the roster.

        • MerryBlind .

          Sure Bayonetta would be and amazing fit. Same for Shulk from Xenoblade. I haven’t played neither game btw, I just think they look awesome and would fit perfectly in Smash.

        • Fierce-Deity Link

          bayonetta? why? she is barely an exclusive character now.. fail to see why she deserves a spot in something as iconic as smash bros.. ohh.. wait.. she doesn’t… and regardless of what u say, dedede isn’t remotely similar aside from the sucking in attack and the fact that they float… one is a powerhouse, the other isn’t.. and there are more characters like greninja.. just cause not everyone has been revealed doesn’t mean there aren’t anymore… and there are a lot of similarities.. not sure if u meant there aren’t.. cause u agreed with me

          • bizzy gie

            But with the release of Bayonetta 2 coming soon, that’d be a perfect 3rd party. What about Rayman (for the short time that was an exclusive)?

            King Dedede also uses a hammer in addition to the two similarities you mentioned (cause u agree with me). That would make them remotely similar I’m sure.

            Like I stated, I know about ALL of the anounced new characters.

            If Nintendo makes a bigger roster, then that’s fine.
            But if it’s the same as Brawl, then I’d prefer new guys of small-time bring-backs like Marth (even people are saying Chrom should be in the roster).

            I can’t make sense of the last part of your reply.

    Roy’s our boy! I wanted Roy back, or heck even Chrom, while Chrom is still possible Ike I just don’t care for.

    • J_Joestar

      I would kinda want Robin actually, just to have a FE character who is more magically inclined, and could have the multi-gender aspect like Villager and WFT.

      • Mario

        Not a bad idea.

    • watchin

      Ike is better than both of them. they should trade marth for roy

  • Fierce-Deity Link

    honestly, i didn’t want ike back.. felt like he should have been cut.. i won’t mind it too much so long as chrom/lucina make it…

  • Mario

    Mario: Your Aether is no match for my fiery fists!

  • extrablade

    how about they show all the characters

    • Mario

      What? And ruin the surprise? That’s crazy! O_o

      • watchin

        I believe that they are gonna show us all the characters

        • Mario

          Yes. You think…

          • watchin

            well, you think they wont…

          • Mario

            I guess we’ll just to wait and see at E3. -_-

          • watchin

            I mean they showed all the characters for Mario kart 8 and the game is just around the corner for the 3ds version were gonna find out real soon

  • Dark Lord Sauron

    all we need now is captain falcon and ganondorf to be confirm

    • watchin

      what about jiggly puff and wario?

  • Logan Wayman

    WAIT! If Ike gets added, then what does that leave Chrom with?!

  • LukeMM95

    I just hope Marth isn’t ruined like he was in Brawl. After recently getting back into playing Melee he’s become my main.

  • steveb944

    The more the merrier

  • Mike

    Ike looks kinda like snake in one of the screens…

  • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

    ” though the most recent game that features the character is the Wii game Radiant Story”

    Don’t you mean Radiant Dawn ?

  • GmailIsDown

    for a moment i thought they were going to make a Fire Emblem game on Wii U and got super excited :/

  • Marioman21

    Heck Yeah I love playing as Ike.

  • Pablo Lavín

    Three Fire Emblem reps please.

  • Yoshifan3

    man i really wanted roy. he was so much better :(

    • watchin

      I like roy I really do but he isn’t better than Ike

    • ps4lol

      “lol someone is in serious denial.
      you got a legit source that says, hey its 1080p, 60fps. yet you wont believe it?
      i think your just HOPING its 720p, Denial is not just a river in Egypt.”

      DON’T RUN AWAY DUMB SHILL, COME BACK AND ADMIT YOU WERE WRONG AND I WAS RIGHT

  • TULFich

    When you fight for your friends you get steroids :D

  • watchin

    Thank god they brought Ike back. I was a little worried

  • Ian Settlemyer

    Ike is great to have in the upcoming game. Chrom can still make it in. Ike’s addition means that the supposedly leaked roster was fake.

  • T-X

    Where’s Tharja though… I’m serious.

  • Dark-Link73

    “I like Ike!”
