[Updated] Robin, Lucina, and Captain Falcon join the Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS line-up

Update: The new trailer is now viewable on YouTube. Check it out here or below this post. A few things are still vague, but Lucina seems a whole lot like a gender swap for Marth, and Chrom seems like a mystery, as we don’t see him fighting a whole lot in the trailer. More food for thought.

Original Post: As Nintendo promised, a new character has been announced for Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS…wait, a few have been announced. It seems Captain Falcon is returning for one thing. Then, from Fire Emblem: Awakening, we have Robin, Lucina, and Chrom joining the fight, in one way or another (the streamed video was rather confusing to me, and it doesn’t help that I was way, way overexcited, being the Fire Emblem: Awakening fan that I am) I got one thing from the video for sure, however: both the male and female versions of Robin will be playable, which is fantastic news in my book. As soon as Nintendo uploads the official reveal to YouTube, you’ll see it right here on Infendo, so check back!

In addition to being a girl gamer, Holly prides herself on being a red-head. Consequently, the blue shell in the Mario Kart series is her natural enemy. Don't worry, though: she still loves Mario Kart and is very good, despite the occasional blue shell-sabotaged race. Like any Nintendo fan, Holly also loves Zelda, Pokemon, Mario, Donkey Kong, Metroid, Kirby...you name it. But she'll try just about anything (besides horror games) and has a soft spot for unique, little-known rhythm games like Rhythm Heaven and Samba de Amigo. NNID: Aeroweth
