Well as of today Ike has been confirmed for the new super smash bros. game and honestly I am a bit disappointed. Of all the characters I wanted to see back Ike was not one of them. It's not that I don't like Ike, as saying goes, but with Ike confirmed it greatly reduces the chance of Chrom being a playable character. Fire Emblem Awakening was the first Fire Emblem game I played and I just loved it to death. So ever since I played it I was looking forward to seeing the game represented in Smash. I figured they would just replace Ike with Chrom like Ike replaced Roy from Melee and would give him a play style similar to Ike to appease his fans. I never played Ike much in Brawl even though a lot of my friends did and never played any of the Fire Emblem games he was in so I was never really attached to him any way. I guess my disappointment just stems from how confident I was Chrom would be in the game, but I don't know, what do you guys think.

So manly

I expect Chrom to show up eventually, but not in this game. Not so quickly. They'll give him time to age, to become solid in popularity before they add him.
I'd love to see either Tactician or Morgan though, unlikely as it is. Their magic/sword switching ability gives a very different play style compared to the Lords. Adding in Chrom or Lucina might end up in very similar move sets to Marth, as well as running too close a character design.

I see what your saying but I was just thinking that the new smash needed more new characters and that a new Fire Emblem would be perfect. Honestly Chrom isn't the character from Fire Emblem I want most, I just thought Nintendo would most likely just add another sword wielding Fire Emblem character. I definitely would rather have a tactician, magician, or even a Manakete would be cool.
