Fire Emblem's Corrin joins Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS

The latest character to hit Super Smash Bros. comes to us from the Fire Emblem roster.


Today's Smash Bros. Direct kicked off with the addition of the game's newest character. It's Corrin, the latest character from the Fire Emblem series to take part in the battle!

Corrin joins the roster from the upcoming Fire Emblem Fates, which is set to hit 3DS next year. Like Robin before him, there are male and female variants of the character. He can use his Yato weapon or his Dragon Fang sword, which enables transformation. His side attacks have a long reach, which extends to aerial attacks, which see Corrin sprout wings.

Dragon Fang Shot is his B attack, which momentarily paralyzes opponents. It can even be charged and hits hard enough to hit more than one opponent at a time. His side-B is Dragon Lunge, which allows Corrin to pin opponents down with a downward thrust, offering up counter potential. His Up-B attack is Dragon Ascent, which gets insane range. His Down-B is Counter Surge, which is a counter move that triggers a transformation and hits both sides equally. Corrin's Final Smash is Torrential Roar, which calls upon a powerful tornado.

Corrin will come with two new music tracks, both from Fire Emblem Fates. Corrin will be available on both Wii U and 3DS in February.
