Fire Emblem’s Ike Returns in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS

on May 23, 2014 7:08 AM

Fire Emblem fans have long had the chance ego play as their favorite characters since Super Smash Bros. Melee, with characters like Marth, Roy, and Ike gracing the screen for multiple installments.

As revealed by Nintendo today in the latest screenshots, Fire Emblem‘s heavy hitter Ike will be returning to the battlefield in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS as its latest character. Previously, Ike debuted in Super Smash Bros. Brawl on Wii, and this time in his returning role his appearance (and presumably play-style) will be based on the most recent entry in the series, Fire Emblem: Awakening.

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS releases in Summer 2014, while Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will release later this year in Winter – in the meantime, check out Ike’s return in these new screenshots:
