The lights are on
Marth has a friend in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Nintendo has announced that his Fire Emblem compatriot Ike is making a return visit to the fighting game.
The reveal was accompanied with a new batch of screens from the game. While they obviously focused on Ike and his flashy sword attacks, they also provide a new glimpse of some of the other characters in the game. One of the best shots is from the 3DS version of the game, featuring Ike just before he becomes a snack for Balloon Fight's fish.
The 3DS version of the game will be arriving this summer, with the Wii U version following in the winter.
Take a look at our earlier Super Smash Bros. coverage in the meantime, including this look at the game's female villager.

Neato. He was one of my favorites, and was worried he wouldn't make it back.
Fredrick! He could use a variety of weapons and then have him come in on his trusty steed for the final smash!
Dang it. I like using Ike, but I was really hoping for Chrom or Lucina... hopefully, Nintendo will put in a third FE character.
I'm glad that he's back but I want Chrom in it as well. Surely they can fit in the main character of one of the best 3DS games. I'd even take Tharja.
He's slow but if any of his attacks connect they do some SERIOUS damage
F'n awesome. I'm buying a wii u just for this.
