Corrin, the main player character from the Fire Emblem Fates/Conquest will be the next DLC fighter to hit Super Smash Bros.
Today’s Nintendo Direct saw the highly anticipated reveal of Bayonetta as the winner of the Super Smash Bros. character ballot, and the final fighter to be added to the game. But Nintendo has also revealed that one more fighter will be released before Bayonetta: Corrin, from the Fire Emblem series.
Specifically, Corrin is the main player character from the upcoming Fire Emblem Fates/Conquest. Just like Robin, while promotional material mostly depicts the character as male, the player can actually choose Corrin’s gender via alternate costumes. Check her/him out in the video above.
Corrin will retail for $4.99 on one platform, or $5.99 for both Wii U and 3DS versions. Just like Bayonetta, he is currently scheduled for a February, 2016 release date.
Corrin’s inclusion brings the number of Fire Emblem characters in the game up to six, beating out Zelda (five) and equaling Pokemon.
Those of you who were worried that Super Smash Bros. wouldn’t have enough anime sword fighters for your liking can rest easy.
