Looking back, why'd they add so much FE shit into smash? Was it really that popular in Japan for it to warrant a new character in every single game installment since Melee? Or was it soccerguys' personal obsession?
>>598976747because FE is nintendo's only good ip
because the series continued success is pegged entirely to being shilled in smash
Luci's voice warms my heart when nothing else will.
>Marth Added in melee to introduce the series to western audiences >RoyAdded as an easy clone of Marth and to promote the upcoming game in JapanBrawl>removed Roy but added Ike, who was the main lord at the timeSmash 4>kept Ike and added Robin for Awakening, which was the first truly ‘popular’ fire emblem game at the time>added Lucina, an easy clone of Marth for female representation even though she was originally going to be a pallete swap>Roy was added as DLC because he was popular>add Corrin to the game for the same reason Roy was added to melee>Ultimate by its namesake adds ALL these characters back and includes Chrome another easy clone to include and popular character>adds Byleth to promote the newest FE game, the same reason Roy was added in melee, the same reason Corrin was added in Smash 4

Which Fire Emblem villain would you like to see in Smash?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyFHihJrw4g
>>598977397Why does FE use smash for shilling its game all the time? Besides Pokemon, I don´t know of any other series that does this throughout the smash games
>>598976747Because Sakurai loves JRPG swordies and he builds the game for himself.
>>598977658The one and only
>>598976747it's one of their biggest IPs, and was/is going through a period of massive growth. There is literally nothing wrong with the representation when it comes to how much there is, they slightly lack in variety, but Robin, Corrin, and Byleth all have some minor tweaks to make them less like the Sword-only Lords. A character that only uses and Axe, Spear, or Magic, was never on the table.
>>598976747I honestly don't hate Fire Emblem, but holy fuck, I cannot pick Random without getting 3 FE characters in a row that play the exact same 'cause they put so many of them into this fucking game. That's the only reason I am sick of them.
>>598977694I mean it's not like they actively go up to Nintendo and ask for a character in Smash, it's simply modern FE, at least for Nintendo, is a very easy thing to shill in Smash. Easy first party pick with little negotiation, popular first party franchise, and since Smash introduced a lot of people to FE the fanbases tend to overlap.
>>598977397I can understand the others but why did Corrin and Byleth needed to be added for the shilling though? FE was already 'popular' by the time Corrin hit.
Three Houses All-Stars Brawl when?
>>598977694FE and Pokemon are the only big Nintendo IPs that have major changes in character line ups with each new title. They also release more frequently than the other titles.
>>598976747Because FE was a shitty dying franchise that nobody was playing and the only way to salvage it was to shill it in a more popular successful game, like Smash. Can't say it didn't work but it surely is a "the ends justify the means" ordeal.
>>598976747Honestly the only characters that play the same are the direct clones so it's alright. Roy is the coolest character in the game and I don't give a shit about the rest of them, but even though there's 'too many' FE reps they're at least pretty diverse moveset/playstyle-wise.
>>598978223>salvage it was to shill it in a more popular successful gameAwakening saved the series though.
It's easy to make. There is no thought process that goes into adapting the characters in the series, it's as braindead as can be. The only characters nearly as braindead and that share that much of a skeleton between characters are probably the FGC charactersEven the modding scene understands that and that's why weebshit gets made a lot in Brawl
Why does Smashfags stink?https://switchsoku.com/soft/smashbros/70576>スマブラのアカン所は自分が嫌いなキャラに対してヘイト溜まりまくって、そのキャラが出てる原作まで嫌いになってしまう奴が一定数いること。>エアプやのに原作まで嫌いになって欲しくないわ。The problem with Smash. is that there are a certain number of people who build up so much hate for a character they don't like that they end up hating the original game in which that character appearsDon't hate me if you haven't even played it>スマブラキッズはスマブラのイメージだけでキャラやシリーズそのものを叩くからな>ほんと害悪Smash kids criticize the characters and the series itself just based on their impressions of Smash.It's very harmful>普通に原作楽しんでる人らの所にまで絡んで叩くからな>もうspで終わって欲しいThey even get involved with people who normally enjoy the original game and criticize it.I want the series to end with sp(Ultimate)
This is your SSB6 project plan for today.
>>598978992do people really play this gaudy soulless shit?
>>598978642>Byleth gets revealed>fucking hate him>play Three Houses like a year later>hate Byleth even more because he's a shitty non-character and a massive charisma vacuumI hate how the game expects you to both believe the entire cast thinks he's an amazing teacher and the coolest guy in school but also completely deadpan and monotone all the time.
>>598979242>he's a shitty non-character and a massive charisma vacuumedelgard isn't a man, anon
>>598979456I didn't play her route.
Probably a lot easier to make another sword character than something like Ridley.
The way nintendo shills fire emblem you’d think its as successful as the souls franchise and makes ER money…And faggots kept saying “souls” like games were niche.Imagine a single game (12m, 3 weeks) blowing the fuck out of a franchise you shilled and forced onto people so hard
>>598977023both roy's and ike's games flopped though while the two games in between that weren't featured in smash had the highest sales at the time, how come?
Ike's wife in smash
>>598980718>Ephraim and Eirika will never be in Smashwhy even live
>>598977694It's one of the only series Nintendo has that's growing in popularity. Like they didn't get more than 2 characters in a Smash game until Smash 4, and that was only after Awakening sold as much as the next closest 10 games in the series combined. And since then, every new release sells more without being any result of increase in budget or advertisement.Like, it sells around as much as Kirby or Donkey Kong, but is growing instead of constantly dwindling.
>>598977943Yeah, can you imagine if both of these were added? Katalina granblue btw
>>598976747Answered your question.
>>598976747Probably because half of them are extremely similar to each other. It’s easy padding, I imagine.
>>598980718Binding Blade did not flop the fuck are you on aboutIt was just japan exclusive, and was the best selling of the GBA FE games in japan
>>598981651Being a medium fish in a tiny pond isn't as good as a big fish in a big pond.
>>598976747I wonder how long banjokes will seethe over so many generic anime swordsmen getting in before their banjunk
>>598982363Yes it was entirely Banjo fans that were mad about FE oversaturation. Dunkey is a dumb cuck but why are you trying to cause unnecessary shitflinging?
>>598982606Oh, I assure you, Genhobos and Isuuckers were also quite active in hating. Remember that episode where Isuuck was speculated and celebrated to be in due to the earthquake delaying the direct? Yeah. We need to keep that memory alive.
>>598983620I think you might need a better hobby
>>598976747>tfw Advance Wars never got the FE:A treatment and instead gets a shitty plastic remake that keeps getting delayed and probably will sell like shit because of no marketing.
>>598976747Because Sakurai likes it and he doesn't give a shit what a bunch of western autists with sword allergies think about the roster.
>>598976747Because Sakurai hates FEhttps://twitter.com/MrMockRock/status/1436464944300498945
>>598982363>>598983620>RedditcraftSeems more like monkey see, monkey do than using creative energy if you ask me
>>598980730>Ike's wifeDo they even have a single conversation together?
>>598985695Yes, but shipping Nailah/Ike is still delusional
>>598985673Truly? I don’t even know the meaning of “redditcraft”
>>598976747With a franchise like Mario or Zelda, you can just add Mario or Link and every single game in their respective series is represented in Smash. Fire Emblem completely changes the lore, characters, and setting every one or two games. They pretty much have to add a new FE character whenever they want to represent the latest Fire Emblem game.>inb4 why didn't they just add Anna, she's in pretty much every FE game except Gaiden and its remakeWhen they first decided to add a FE rep to Smash Bros, Anna was just some random girl who had a husband called Jake, and would asked the player if they wanted to save their game, it wasn't until Awakening she had an actual character and potential moveset.
>>598977926New game in the franchise. And unlike Mario, each game stars completely different characters.
