Would have preferred Azura but a Fates rep is cool regardless.

It’s worthwhile imo to read the following translated article by Sakurai on FE: http://www.sourcegaming.info/2015/12/13/sakurai-fe25/

Talking about relevancy in determining reps, which certainly applies to Corrin in this instance.

Also all that water

Well by next Smash Corrin’s relevancy would no longer apply (unless Fates canon continues in a second game which I doubt) so now is a better time

FE haters are gonna haaaaaaaaaaate!
Seriously, I almost fainted….. he/she was one of my top 3 characters and I thought it was impossible for he/she to appear in this game… dang, I never was that happy to be wrong!!!

Yeah, I’m overall happy except for what l said earlier(no Dark Blood costume)
And his/her moveset could’ve been more unique. (They share Marth’s up aerial I think and a idle animation as well l think. There might be others, but I’m not sure) but still, I’m overall happy. After Azura, Corrin was my most wanted FEcharacter.r

Characters sharing some moves is expected tbh

What was interesting when Roy came out was how some of his poses were based on Robin (Marth is obvious ofc)

Nice nod to the ‘Corrin defeated an enemy’ animation as a taunt though

Well, better than being a clone at least.

I forgot to mention about the fourth route reference in the trailer lmao

Also as Toblet mentioned elsewhere:

Sakura: “Big brother is now big sister…!?”

My diva is Smashing! (I prefer her hair in Fates, but it’s still fabulous)

If I end up getting any DLC characters I will probably get this one. He/She seems really cool to play as, even though I’ve never played FE.

I don’t mind Corrin but would certainly prefer Aqua. I don’t even have an Aqua/ Camilla alt. :<

And the female should've been the primary character in Corrin's case. Better design, greater popularity and gender equality. There was no reason not to do this.

I wish female Corrin had a Sakura alt. I’d have loved to see red haired female Corrin.

Me too, Aqua would’ve been sooo nice! And she’s unfortunately possibly impossible for Smash 5 since Fates probably won’t be relevant anymore and since now we already have a rep.
I imagine that if we got her, there would be less hate as she isn’t what people describe as another “anime swordfighter” and she would be even more unique than Corrin (if that’s even possible).

The attacks seem really interesting and the fact that he/she has the blood of a dragon makes him stand out far more than the typical sword welding anime fighter for your information haters.

Honestly, I don’t care too much about him/her. I mean, maybe I’d care about them more when I get the Fire Emblem: Fates game. 😛

Also, another barefoot fighter… I know SZ’s gonna pick him/her LMFAO
