    God forbid the most voted character wasn't from a wii-u exclusive modern game. Why not a more obscure character?

    Also. Fire. Fucking. Emblem. Jesus Christ might as well call it fire emblem duels

    It's all just for advertising sake for "fates" BTW that corrin reach is OP as a motherfuck

    At least he's not a clone. Robin and Ike are both fire emblem but at least they play way different to Marth/Lucina/Roy. Most peoples problem is not that its fire emblem or that its sword characters, its clones. Corrin does not look like a clone of anybody and he looks awesome. I really dont see the problem here?

    I'm actually not disappointed with the characters themselves. They're pretty cool and we can clearly see the amount of work done by Sakurai and his team. The only disappointing thing is that it's actually over and we didn't get everyone we wanted. Then again, we can't always get the best of all worlds :P

    I have no fucking idea.
    This was actually a really good Smash direct tbh.
    Bayonetta looks OP as fuck, Cloud looks cool and Corrin is new to me but the changing into a dragon is neat.

    You must be a big fire emblem fan then. All the characters from nintendo's history that they have and they choose yet another fire emblem character. Too many from that franchise.
