Nintendo has announced the addition of Ike from Fire Emblem to the Smash Bros roster, joining Marth.
Another Fire Emblem character is joining the cast of the next Super Smash Bros. Ike, a swordsman like the already-announced Marth, has been announced with a batch of new screenshots.
The screens from the official site show him off in both his Wii U and 3DS incarnations, squaring off against characters like Samus and Little Mac. We expect to see more from Smash Bros at E3, where Nintendo will be hosting an invitational tournament among the festivities. Check out a few of the new screens below, or check out the gallery to see them all.
And let's add Ike to our full roster list.
Warning: Do not actually punch a sword

I'm still bummed we're not getting the Wii U version until later this year.
I'd be pretty surprised if we didn't. On the other hand, we still haven't heard shit about the previously-announced SMT ...
All I hope this means is we're likely to get more Fire Emblem on the 3DS.
