Today’s screenshot upload for Super Smash Bros. reveals the return of Marth from the Fire Emblem series. Marth first appeared in Super Smash Bros. Melee and made his second appearance in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Now he’ll be returning for the next installment of Super Smash Bros. on both the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS.

This marks the 18th character reveal for the Super Smash Bros. series and there are some great action shots you can check out below. What do you think of the addition? Are you happy to see Marth’s return? Let us know in the comments!

    I was so excited it was worth the waiting for this moring. Guess i’ll go to work having only had two hours of sleep. 🙂

  • gtosheex

    very cool. but this was my brother’s best character so this news a little bittersweet for me lol

  • Raptok

    Personally I want to see Lucina

    • The Clockwork Being

      OR Chrom!

    • RockieOllie

      I don’t know if she will playable, maybe as an alternate costume

  • Ballzbeard

    For the love of god, Sakurai, bring back Wolf.

  • Archiq09

    I like this character in Smash Bros :3

  • Captinn2

    I want Lucas back as a playable charachter and the Masked Man (Mother 3) as a trophy.

    • Michael Ocampo

      Lucas was the guy that i played as AT LEAST half the time because he matched my fighting style almost PERFECTLY. But I start thinking if one character returns, will another one be canned from being a newcomer? If they did bring him back it would be nice to have a new move set though.

  • CEObrainz

    Well I’m glad Marth is back in the game, although I never had a doubt he would be taken out. It would be cool if they made Lucina a skin for Marth with an alternate voice. Similar to what I think they are going to do with the Wii Fit Trainer.

    • rp17

      Never thought about the need for the voices to be changed. I guess they kinda have to. Speaking from experience as a Brawl hacker, it was very weird (and creepy) when Iron Man would say in Samus’ high-pitched voice “Is that All?… Try me!…”

      • CEObrainz

        Ahh, I had that problem once. I took some sound clips from the Iron Man films and changed Samus’ voice clips to get over that.

        • rp17

          lol I always sucked at sound hacks. But I couldn’t have done that anyway as I set up Brawl so every color of every character (except g&w of course) was a completely different person.

          • CEObrainz

            Oh, I see. Yea I suppose you couldn’t.

  • Simon Stevens

    Best Fire Emblem ever

    • CEObrainz

      Do you mean Shadow Dragon was the best one ever? Cos I think you’d be mistaken, that came had the worst mechanics in the series, being the first game too.

      • Simon Stevens

        Aw shit >.< I missworded, I meant to say Fire Emblem, best ever, Ike is my favourite Fire Emblem character, Path of Radiance being my favourite game of the series, I was gripped to that game, I always shst myself any time the black knight came anywhere near me lol

        • CEObrainz

          Ahh…lol, I see. Yea Path of Radiance was a very good game,

  • BIG Franky

    I’m really getting nervous that we are done with new characters introduced…. I really really REALLY want Little Mac… he has been left out (as a playable character) for far too long and this release is their chance to correct that…plus I just feel like the SSB series was made for him. I was also really hoping for more NEW characters… Wonder Red/Blue/Pink were made for this game! The exposure this release will create would help to move copies of Wonderful 101 too… please make this happen, Nintendo!

    • Adrian

      I don’t know of this Little Mac..

      • rp17

        To save you some time googling lol, Little Mac is the boxer from Punch-Out!

        • Adrian


    • LevenThumps

      I’m pretty sure more new characters will be revealed. I’m guessing this game will probably come out in the fall of 2014, so I predict most of the brand new characters will be revealed at the next E3 (similar to how the three new characters were revealed at this year’s E3). To please the fans, they are slowly revealing veterans that are returning for Smash 4.

    • Johnny Be Me

      Well every single character other than the three newcomers from the initial announcements are all returning characters. So I’m going to guess that they’re going to announce all the returning characters and then announce some more newcomers.

    • Nathan DeFalco

      You and me, Big Franky. Seriously. Lil Mac deserves a spot. Imagine him turning into Giga Mac for his smash move. Instead they’re bringing back Marth. Not a Marth fan here. I played Ike more anyway.

  • Adrian

    I would think that the hardest part about creating this game would be balancing the characters so that nobody is overpowered….not choosing the characters (which seems to be taking a long time). The fact that characters are still being chosen makes me feel like the release date for this is far away.

  • Cyberus

    Very nice. The mascot of Fire Emblem has returned

  • Tra Allen

    He was my anti-link character. Destroyed plenty noobs with him

  • Wren Justin Umlauf

    Very happy to see Marth back, I played as him a lot in Melee, but I wish he didn’t look so feminine this time around. Is that how he looks in the Fire Emblem games?

  • Ace

    Look, I’m uber happy that my main is coming back, but can we get some new characters that haven’t been is the SSB series?

  • LevenThumps

    I’m really glad that Marth is revealed. What I’m hoping for now is that since the Wii Fit Trainer has an alternate skin for the male trainer, Marth will get an alternate skin for Marth in Fire Emblem: Awakening.

  • starwars360

    Awesome 🙂

  • The Clockwork Being

    Changed my profile accordingly! Love Marth in all the Smash games he has been in. Now if only my last character could be revelead, my legendary trio will be completed.


    Edit: Anyone from the Mother series should be revealed. I realy would love for Lucas to be in this along with the Masked Man.

    • LevenThumps

      I want Lucas to return to Smash 4, although there are many theories on the Internet saying he won’t be in the game. So far, no character from Mother has been announced for Smash 4, and there needs to be Ness at least, Lucas should come back as well, and I am open to any new characters from Mother.

    • Josiah Parsons

      Everyone thinks I’m crazy, but personally I prefer Ness. There’s a strong chance he’ll be in because he’s one of the classics. Unfortunately, if he’s back and they are taking out clones, Lucas has a lower chance (unless they revamp his moves) but then again, they brought back Link as well as Toon Link, so in terms of speculation, this post is kinda pointless.

      • The Clockwork Being

        No no you are not crazy. Lucas and Ness are both awesome. Ness actually comes up high in my great character list. The only difference with Lucas is that I can make better strategies with Lucas

  • As long as Ike isn’t back…

    • CEObrainz

      Why the hate for Ike?

      • He’s cheap as hell XD way too much power for his speed.

        • rp17

          He wasn’t that fast, but compared to ganondorf I see your point. But that doesn’t mean they need to get rid of him. Sakurai can just rebalance and/or give him new moves.

          • CEObrainz

            He’ll most likely get replaced though with Chrom.

          • sure. Rebalance him. That’s fine with me

        • CEObrainz

          He had a bad second jump, exploitable recovery, bad grab range, slow start up moves and terrible ending lag. The power and mid-speed is what makes this character usable.

          • Lemme rephrase. He’s too easy to be cheap with. He can EASILY edge guard. Especially against someone who plays as olimar like me. His side smash can also kill at 34 damage

          • CEObrainz

            Ahh, that makes sense. Although I’ve face Olimars with both Ike and Marth before who were leagues better than I am. His side smash though is deadly if it hits…

        • Nathan DeFalco

          Ike had some of the best move animations. Slamming someone with your sword, doing the sword flip/jump, his dash attack, charged up flame sword. I felt like such a beast when I connected with those.

  • jjbredesen

    Yes fantastic, but i want Roy to return! Also when i think about it, RAYMAN would be a awesome charecter. I actually think we could get him. Ubisoft has been suporting Nintendo alot and they have a really god relationship.

    Also if you are a fan of Brawl and Melee check out this:

    • Maury

      i want chrom to join

  • The last Chozo

    Great to see one of my favourite characters in smash bross will stay!

  • jjbredesen
    • Josiah Parsons

      Yes, if they use the Origins/Legends Rayman.

    • Levi Johansen

      I want him in the game so much, I’d be willing to lose almost any character to get him.

    • 00EpicGamer00

      YES! Absolutely. Rayman is epic, and needs to be in this game! Now, it’d be hilarious if they’d have Connor (AC3) as an assist trophy xD. Assassin’s Creed 3 was the very first game in the series on a Nintendo (home) console, so why not reward that by putting him in the game? :3. I know it won’t happen, but it’s still fun to imagine.

  • Richard Collard

    Good. Marth is back. Now bring back Ike!

    • jjbredesen

      Or replace him with Chrome!

  • bizzy gie

    We need new characters Nintendo.

  • Nathan Verbois

    New characters aside, every time I see screenshots of the Wii U version of the game, it looks far more like a Pixar film than a game. It certainly looks better than any other fighting game out there. 3DS version looks stylish as well. Can’t wait!

  • Madmagican

    Also, I’m waiting for some more new characters to be announced like Little Mac or Isaac

  • e_rocket

    Wonder red and Bayoneta!!!!!!

  • companyoflosers

    i think since they are paying special attention to making every character their own thig and trying to eliminate “clone characters” to increase the max number of characters in the game, there will probably be skins in the next smash bros to allow someone to play the character they want, without having to alter the balance of the game too much. im sure there will be new fighting styled characters, but for characters like marth, an alternate skin of chrom or lucina seems likely in my opinion.

  • SleepySkullhead

    Perhaps Seth could get in too. I’ve only played Sacred Stones though.

  • 00EpicGamer00

    Peach sure is falling in love with allot of people lately. Mario’s got quite the competition doesn’t he?

    • Mario

      Let me at em!!!

      • 00EpicGamer00

        You go Mario! You’re even up against….your own brother!

        • Mario


  • Wiiluigi

    Awesome! Can’t wait for the full lineup to be revealed.

  • Connor Devlin

    Marth is awesome, but I can’t wait for when Nes is confirmed!

  • Lv100Ash

    Noobs, Brawl was HORRIBLE

  • Jeovany

    Great now all we need is Mr.Game and Watch and R.O.B and I’ll be happy

  • MusubiKazesaru

    Shulk, Hooded Avatar, and Chrom
