So, this morning, a new Smash Bros trailer was livestreamed, and boy was it a big one! This trailer announced two newcomers and one veteran!
The trailer starts out with an animated segment, similar to the HD cutscenes from Fire Emblem: Awakening. We see Lucina kneeling in front of an unconscious Chrom, and...
According to the official website, she's a newcomer, but what we see of her from the trailer makes her look suspiciously like Marth. She might be a clone, but some are thinking she might be an alternate costume. Though, if that was the case, why would she get highlighted during the trailer, and get her own section on the official website?
Anyway, Lucina is shown to be fighting Captain Falcon, making this video double as his reveal. After they fight a bit, Cap is suddenly attacked with some magic bursts, and down comes Robin, the Tactician from Awakening!
Robin fights by using both his sword and magic tomes. Just like in the game, his tomes can only be used a limited number of times before being discarded, though you can probably get more somehow. The tomes use Thunder, Fire, Wind, and Dark elements.
At the end of the trailer, Chrom laments that he won't be in this Smash, saying "Perhaps I'll get my chance another day..." before being revealed to be part of Robin's Final Smash. Also, you can play as the Female Robin.
All in all, this was an extremely satisfying character reveal! I was expecting just one newcomer, but to get two newcomers and a veteran is just great! I know I can't wait to see how good Lucina and Robin are! We'll just have to wait and see for another few months...
HBM, signing out!
