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

Just what we need, more fire emblem characters. Can't get enough of those counters... :nayps3:

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?

Nintendo ruined everything. I am so disappointed. Fk smash bros fk sakurai

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

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.
