    Looks like those Chrom and Roy talks can be put to rest. Ike has returned.

    This is a good addition i think, so far we dont have many "heavy" characters and Ike was arguably one of the heaviest hitters in brawl. Not a fave of mine admittedly but for people who like slower but hard hitting characters then this is good news. I also see what people mean when they call him gorilla, seems he's been working out at the same gym that Chris Redfield and Knuckles go to.

    Ugh. Not Ike again. I don't understand why he's so popular...

    He´s ,hands down the best Character on Brawl,
    but I still hope for Chrom or lucina to be playable on this game.

    Nintendo would be insane not to include a character from Awakening. It sold quite well, and I'd imagine it introduced a whole new crowd of people to Fire Emblem.

    That said, I'm glad it's Ike and not Roy. He and Marth always seemed too similar to me.

    I can't be excited for Ike's "return" when he never left to begin with... He was SSBB, and he will be in the new one too.

    Makes me happy that this puts this BS "leak" to rest.

    ^Not real! There is still hope that your favorite characters could make it in (I'm still hoping for you to pull through MewTwo!) Of course especially with the NFC announcement yesterday, I'm thinking that extra characters as DLC/figurines you scan in will be a strong possibility.

    Because WE LIKE IKE.

    Ike was my Brawl main man so I'm glad he's back. Get wrecked kids.

    I'm more concerned as to where the hell Captain Falcon is. He is a Smash Bro's hall of famer like Mario and Link, Unless they're saving him for E3 and do a double reveal 1 being him unveiled as the next character to join Smash and 2 being the unveiling of a new F-Zero for Wii U.

    Away from this shithole
    Because, despite many years off the shelves, he's still the first person you think of when someone says Fire Emblem.
    That, and he's a badass <3

    Eh, he's pretty much the only character from his franchise they can use (and Goroh has already been confirmed as assist trophy) and he's been in forever. I'm sure he'll appear eventually.

    Falcon, Ness and Jigglypuff are only characters that have been in every Smash game yet to be announced in this one. I don't give a toss about the puff but Ness and Falcon are a must.


    I'd also like Mr. Game and Watch to make a return, he was fun in Melee. Melee version of Ganondorf aswell, he played like shite in Brawl.

    I've said it elsewhere but either Jack from madworld or Travis Touchdown would be an epic additionto the game

    I'd assume that most people would think of Marth.

    I don't know. Help.
    Awesome, I used him all the time in brawl and it looks like they changed his "Path of Radiance" look into his "Radiant Dawn" one. Maybe this time he'll fight for himself instead of his friends.

    And yes, I like Ike.

    Not surprised as he was in Brawl, so it's just another addition rather than a new character.
