Nintendo has announced through a video on the official site the inclusion of several new characters for the upcoming Smash Bros sequel on Wii U and 3DS. Rounding out the cast of playable characters include new faces Lucina and Robin from Fire Emblem: Awakening, as well as fan-favorite Captain Falcon from the F-Zero series. Additionally, Robin, who is a facsimile of the customizable player character of Awakening, will be playable as either the female or male version, similar to the Animal Crossing Villager and Mii Fighters.
We’ve already played a little bit of Smash on both the 3DS and Wii U at this year’s E3, but you guys can battle it out with all these characters on October 3rd of this year for the 3DS and the holiday season for the Wii U.
