>I played all the way through FE:A and really wanted to include a character from that rich cast in Smash Bros. Naturally, I considered adding Chrom to the roster, but the decision wasn’t easy by any means.
Who did he marry?
>People saying Lucina
>Made to look like complete shit in the reveal trailer. Cpt. Falcon parries her sword with his fucking fist.
>Gives her almost no development time, takes the one good thing Marth has and removes it and essentially makes Lucina "Marth with Training Wheels".
>Basically says "This bitch is lucky she's even in the game"
If he married her he probably would have treated her better than that. I legitimately think he was just told to add her because Nintendo wanted more female characters
>Sakurai was planning to include Chrom in Smash Bros
>He gets NTR'd
>fast forward to last Monday
>Chrom is on the ground with the shit beaten out of him
So, who do you think Chrom stole from him?
Sakurai made it a point of saying that she's lucky she's in the game. I doubt he likes her and it almost sounds like he was forced to include her.
If he liked her he wouldn't have made her Marth, but shittier because she has less killing potential.
I think it's mentioned somewhere in Awakening (can't remember where exactly) that it's not so much "can't" as "won't". Something about how Robin is unnerved at how easily dark magic comes to him or something.
>I dont know if im in a minority for liking her, but she is the first character in FE i really liked.
She was the first character that anyone in the Western fanbase liked, considering how she's the first character in the first localized game who holds the player's hand for 10 whole chapters.
I want her too
I know Hector is the favorite lord for most people in the game, but I ended up hating him, for the soul fact when he leveld up in my file he leveled up like shit, so Lyn is still my favorite.
My guess is that its a similar situation to Roy where Lucina is going to be the main lord in a sequel. Just like for melee, Sakurai was originally going to have Marth as the new moveset with leaf as the clone but was "asked" by intelligent systems to put Roy in instead.
Well we don't know if Lucina's getting her own game, but yeah, we're definitely getting another game set in Ylisse, that's just the way it is.
1/3, 11/12 = Archanea duology
4/5 = Jugdral duology
6/7 = Elibe duology
9/10 = Tellius duology
I mean even without Awakening's crazy success, that's just how the pattern goes.
We'll have to see if he drops her for the next game too, but that won't be for years
if ever, we don't know what nintendo's situation will be.
I'm still going to try her out, but Sakurai made Lucina's Falchion do more even damage, unlike Marth where he does the most damage at the tip, like a fencer. We'll have to see how much this gimps Lucina, if at all. Typically characters good for beginners are not good over all, although Meta knight was supposedly supposed to be good for beginners and he certainly was not a bad fighter in Brawl.
tbh lucina's inclusion just annoys me in general. i was hoping her inclusion meant that other franchises would get similar characters (black shadow for F Zero, that sort of thing) but she's a special case because sakurai somehow decided costumes of different characters are fine but she should be her own character anyways.
>We'll have to see if he drops her for the next game too
Probably not. Ike got to stay because he is a retardedly popular Lord, and Lucina dwarfs him in popularity. She may very well be here to stay.
Robin on the other hand, will stay in his own way. The concept of "Fire Emblem MU" will stay, but Robin himself will likely be updated to whatever the current MU of the time is.
>but that won't be for years if ever, we don't know what nintendo's situation will be.
Don't listen to the shitposting. Nintendo's not doing too hot right now, but honestly, they could be doing much, much worse.
Oh definitely. IMO that's one of the best parts of this reveal; /v/'s going to be eating humble pie for weeks before this ends.
Then when the next Smash gets announced they'll pretend it never happened and that they like, totally called Lucina from the getgo, man.
TBH her inclusion was kind of a curve ball
>Marth gets in, people who for some reason thought he'd be replaced with Chrom/Lucina start crying
>L-L-LUCINA'S GONNA BE A ALT COSTUME
>that's fucking retarded, she's a different character
>cut to robin's reveal
>she is a character
>but she was going to be a costume
I'm more surprised that Sakurai considered male/female villagers/wft to be comparable to Marth/Lucina.
I legitimately even said she was going to be a costume. Sakurai threw a curveball at me by changing the way her sword works and giving her her own character slot but I figured she was going to be in the game in some capacity. Just with how easy including her would be and all.
I feel like there would have been a second Magvel game if they weren't in a rush to make a GC Fire Emblem before that console died out. Even when Sacred Stones came it was on old hardware.
Does Sakurai even want to make these games anymore? Is he like Kojima? Was Brawl his MGS4?
I'm pretty sure I heard Nintendo announced Brawl before even asking Sakurai if he'd be the director of the game.
I think he might have known about this game, it was Brawl where Iwata announced it without informing Sakurai.
>At the pre-E3 2005 press conference, the president of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, announced the next installment of Super Smash Bros. was not only already in development for their next gaming console, but would be a launch title with Wi-Fi compatibility for online play. The announcement was unexpected to the creator of the Super Smash Bros. series, Masahiro Sakurai. Back in 2003, he had left HAL Laboratory, the company that was in charge with the franchises' and the Kirby series' development and was never informed of this announcement despite the fact shortly after resigning from the company, Iwata said if a new game was to be made, he would be in charge. It was not until after the conference Sakurai was called to Satoru Iwata's room on the top floor of a Los Angeles hotel where he was told by Iwata, "We'd like you to be involved in the production of the new Smash Bros., if possible near the level of director".
I think Magvel is more the exception to the rule than anything.
I just don't count Gaiden because it's really the weird installment of the series. I'm surprised IS even acknowledged it in Awakening, honestly.
He hates making sequels, which is why he quit, but I guess that's why he wants to make each Smash game unique beyond 'bigger roster' etc, to avoid the problems of what most sequels do.
More like gaylord HAHAHAH GET IT
Lucina. That trailer makes Robin/Lucina a thing.
Did no one else play as oldfag Robin? Oldfag Robin was the shit and I'm pissed he got passed up for this generic teenage bullshit.
>through supports with her mom, noire says can't use dark magic
>can still reclass as dark mage
