Ike joins Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS playable character roster
Having first joined the fray in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Ike, from the Fire Emblem series, has today been confirmed as a returning playable character in Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS
“Ike, the swordsman of magnificent strength, joins the battle! Strike your foes down with his powerful smash attacks,” series creator Masahiro Sakurai wrote on Miiverse. “For this game, Ike’s design is based on the hero that appears in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. His sword deals heavy damage in Smash Bros., so this design suits him very well! Rest assured, he can use Aether as well.”
Ike first appeared in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and starred as the main protagonist in GameCube’s Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. As a brawler, he followed in the footsteps of Fire Emblem’s Marth and Roy who first appeared in Super Smash Bros. Melee.
Super Smash Bros. will release on 3DS this summer, with the Wii U version to follow in winter.
