Marth Returns To The Fight!

Image

A month after Smash Bros’ last character reveal, Marth from Fire Emblem has been confirmed as the eighteenth character to join the fighting game roster.

It was highly expected that a Fire Emblem character would appear in this iteration of Smash Bros, due to Fire Emblem: Awakening’s enormous success. It still remains to be seen if Marth will be the only character from the series to enter the fight, or if characters such as Ike or Chrom will join as well.

Smash Bros. Weekly Recount:

Each weekday, Masahiro Sakurai, creator of the Smash Bros. series posts a screenshot from the latest installment for Wii U & 3DS. Every weekend, we here at The Gaming Fix will recollect all of the screenshots for your viewing pleasure.

The first image is a screenshot from the 3DS version, showing how Olimar will look, and is presumably from the Battlefield stage.

Image

Tuesday’s image shows us all three of the confirmed female characters, with Peach having recently joined the roster.

Image

The third image is just a close up of Pyrosphere’s background, and that’s about it. It is currently unknown if the stage will transition through this particular hole or if it’s just a background texture.

Image

Our fourth image is just Peach sighing at Link’s sight… Is she flirting with him? That’s up to you.

The fifth and final image shows the return of a technique that was previously introduced in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, called footstool, which involved jumping on an opponent’s head and stunning them momentarily.
