Captain Falcon, Robin, and Lucina Confirmed for Smash Bros. 4

Smash Bros. 4 Lucina Captain Falcon Robin

This morning, Nintendo held a special presentation that revealed 3 new characters who would be heading to Smash Bros. 4 on the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. These 3 characters were—you guessed it—Captain Falcon from the F-Zero franchise, Robin from Fire Emblem, and Lucina, also from Fire Emblem.

Of course, Captain Falcon was a bit on the more expected side of the announcement, but Robin and Lucina come as a bit of surprise.

Lucina’s fighting style differs from Robin’s fighting style in a major way. Lucina will use close-up melee techniques whilst gamers playing as Robin will most likely prefer ranged play.

Another thing mentioned was the ability to swap genders with each of these characters. This is a feature that wasn’t implemented in the previous game, Super Smash Bros. Brawl on the Nintendo Wii.

Now that Robin and Lucina have been confirmed, this means that a total of four characters from the Fire Emblem franchise will be playable.
