Lucina, Robin, and Captain Falcon join the cast of Super Smash Bros U and 3DS!

If you're a Fire Emblem fan, great news! Lucina and Robin have been confirmed for the upcoming Smash Bros, along side the return of Captain Falcon! But for anyone who doesn't know, just who are these characters (other than Captain Falcon)?

Well, Lucina is what you might call the "leads" of Fire Emblem Awakening. She's a character who plays a key role in the story, a lot of the game's events revolved around her, and if you played as the male "avatar," she was one of the females you could marry. Lucina is easily one of the best characters in the game, and if you play your cards right (by marrying Chrom to a female avatar), she could become THE strongest if you really wanted her to be. She's just a great character all around, and a great choice for Super Smash Bros (she's also the first female Fire Emblem character to be playable in Smash Bros... Sort of).

As for Robin, well, he/she is the avatar of Fire Emblem Awakening. At the start of the game you can choose between genders, choose different body types, hair styles, faces, as well as hair colors. Robin is the central character of the game's story, and can also become just about every class (limited by gender only). When it comes to Robin being in Smash Bros, he/she isn't as customizable, but you can choose to play either the male or female version of him/her.

For more information, check out the new trailer below: (Personally, I'm just happy Lucina was announced. If you couldn't tell by the fact that her picture was featured here on NGR for many months, she's one of my favorite characters from the series.)
