The lights are on
Fire Emblem’s original protagonist, Prince Marth, will rejoin the Super Smash Bros. cast when the next versions of the game arrive on Wii U and 3DS. His inclusion was announced on the official Super Smash Bros. webpage.
Marth carries his sword Falchion (which is not actually a falchion) into battle. He first appeared in Super Smash Bros. Melee. You can check out images of him on both versions below. For more information on Super Smash Bros., check out some recent coverage.

I always liked Marth. I wish Nintendo would translate the SNES Fire Emblems and bring them to the Virtual Console.
Very nice. Now, if we could just get Chrom...
Yeah! My main man from melee
Which likely means Ike or Roy will make an appearance too. I preferred Roy when playing. It's good to see old favorites come back, but I wish there was some better "newcomers" into the fold. So far, extremely underwhelming.
This is coming from a long time fan who still owns his original N64 cartridge and has all the others. This, and the other first party titles I've seen so far, have a definite "been there, done that" feel to me.
I was kinda hoping Chrom or Lucina was going to replace him. I'm still hoping Hector or Lyn are going to be the second Fire Emblem character the game.
Expected, but still glad he was announced.
