Marth Confirmed for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS

Today’s daily Super Smash Bros. update revealed the return of Marth! Even though this announcement doesn’t correlate with any release of a Fire Emblem game, it didn’t take long for Sakurai to make his post on Miiverse:

Marth joins the battle!! Once again, everyone will be overwhelmed by his magnificent sword skills!!

Check out all the screens below!

What a bishie~ At least he’s attempting to show his orientation by flirting with Peach there. XD

Let’s hope we’ll see Chrom as well, replacing Ike from Brawl, who replaced Roy from Melee.

Despite the Confirmation, there’s no details of a Fire Emblem Stage for the Wii U Version. Any Guesses.

I think he’ll be confirmed at the release of Yoshi’s New Island. Next Confirmed Character I think at the release of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds will be Zelda. 2 weeks from now.

For your point on Zelda, doubtful. They don’t reveal characters or stages or whatever upon release, but rather only upon Japanese releases. So for a A Link Between Worlds reveal association, that will not be until Thursday, December 26, 2013.

Who before the end of the year do you believe may have a likely confirmation upon a release?

I at first thought Diddy would be confirmed at the release of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, but thanks to the uneeded delay, that may not be likely. I hope they confirm another newcomer before the end of the year, like Little Mac (a stage makes it likely).

I was hoping for a Mario or Zelda reveal(Super Mario 3D World,Mario Party Island Tour,and Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds) but I’m glad that Marth’s returning.

Me too kinda, Something from the Link Between Worlds I dont accept because theres already Toon Link, and for 3DWorld, every main character from the Mario series has been comfirmed except Yoshi.

Yes but they might reveal a newcomer from Super Mario 3D World. I personally want Bowser Jr. or Paper Mario but that’s just me.

Nope. Doubtful. Peach uses Toad as one of her special attacks, so Toad is definitely confirmed not to be playable.

Yeah, well, Toon Link is playable and is also part of a stage. Anything can happen.

Yeah I agree with you there. Maybe Blue Toad could be an Assist Trophy. What I’d have him do is he would pop up and give you Mushrooms,Poison Mushrooms,and Hammers as well as (very rare though) Stars and Golden Hammers.

Sakurai stated that Peach’s moves were placeholder in the images and may be subject to change. Toad could easily be playable.

But does a Toad have the skills and moves for a fighting game? Bowser Jr. don’t forget are what fans are hoping for.

Um you guys, worrying about the return of Yoshi is like worrying about the return of Kirby, Pikachu, Donkey Kong, or Mario. He’s in the game, they’ll show him off eventually, calm down.

Exactly. I mean, there’s no way he’ll be left out. Yoshi is part of the original 8/12 fighters.

He’s got an older design for Falchion, and his profile on the site has a link leading to Awakening instead… interesting…

The Japanese site links to New Mystery of the Emblem. Awakening is the only Fire Emblem website NoA has active.

I don’t know, I could have sworn that Sakurai have said it would not be possible thanks to the 3DS’s limitations. So Ice Climbers may be out of luck.

2 Outcomes for a Stage of Fire Emblem for a Wii U Version that could be up for grabs either from the original NES game or from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. Any other likeliness games.

*Looks at watch* This is nice and all, Nintendo, but I’m still waiting for Ness, Captain Falcon, Wario, Yoshi, and Mr. Game and Watch to be announced. To be honest though, I know their trying to make the roster smaller, but it seems a few spots have already been wasted. *Cough* Toon Link *Cough*
