I have to admit I don't know much about the Fire Emblem series and I honestly didn't even know who those two were at first, but after seeing them in action, I do think they seem like good additions to Marth and Ike, the other confirmed characters from Fire Emblem. Lucina seems to be more of a straightforward sword fighter, but Robin looks more interesting in that he seems to be a swordsman who relies more on magic than basic swordplay. Although I have my typical standard characters, I'm looking forward to trying out all the new ones, these two included.
The new characters definitely look good, but I'm actually more excited about the fact that Nintendo finally decided to reveal good old Captain Falcon! He's one of my favorite fighters and I was getting a little worried since Nintendo hadn't said anything about him after all this time.
Here's the reveal trailer for anyone who hasn't seen it. Nintendo has confirmed that Chrom, the character at the end, will not actually be a playable fighter. I would guess he'll most likely be an assist trophy.
I don't know about you guys, but I'm a huge fan of the anime art style of a lot of these reveal trailers, and I would LOVE to see an actual Super Smash Bros. anime. Make it happen, Nintendo!
