The second Fire Emblem character has been revealed for Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS and it isn’t Chrom or Lucina. It’s Ike. In this installation of Smash Bros, Ike will be leaning more towards his Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn design than his Fire Emblem: Path Of Radiance one.
Along with Ike’s reveal was the confirmation that Super Smash Bros. Wii U will support NFC. In an interview with French newspaper company Le Figaro, Nintendo France’s managing director Stephan Bole confirmed that Super Smash Bros. Wii U will be among the many future Nintendo releases to utilize near field communication technology.
“Wii U had suffered the past a lack of games a year, with widely spaced outlets. The beginning of the year 2014 was also quiet, what will happen after the release of Mario Kart 8? Many games release will be formalized at the show at E3, but you already know that we out action game Bayonnetta 2. By the end of the year, there will also be the new Skylanders, the new Disney Infinity, Sonic Boom, Watch Dogs or Zelda Hyrule Warriors. And on the output side of games produced by Nintendo, there will obviously be the fighting game Super Smash Bros.. E3 is also an opportunity to show the use of NFC technology [used in Skylanders and Disney Infinity, allowing the use of real objects – here, figurines – in video games] in Nintendo consoles . The NFC will be used in the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros.”
Super Smash Bros 3DS drops this summer and Super Smash Bros Wii U this winter.
