Fire Emblem’s Ike joins the Super Smash Bros. roster

Posted on May 23, 2014 AT 03:18am

Fire Emblem’s Ike has been confirmed as the latest character to join the Super Smash Bros. roster on 3DS and Wii U.

Series creator Masahiro Sakurai revealed the information in his latest Miiverse post. ”Ike, the swordsman of magnificent strength, joins the battle. Strike down your foes with his powerful smash attack,” he wrote.

“For this game, Ike’s design is based on the hero that appears in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn,” Sakurai added. “His sword deals heavy damage in Smash Bros., so this design suits him very well! Rest assured, he can use Aether as well.”

Super Smash Bros. is currently scheduled to release this summer on 3DS and in the winter for Wii U.
