During his weekly Famitsu column, Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai discussed Fire Emblem Fates protagonist Corrin being added to Smash Bros. as DLC. He stated that during Smash Bros.‘ DLC development, the team wanted to include a character from a game that had either just been released or would release soon; Fire Emblem Fates fit the bill, as it was recently released in Japan and was coming to the US soon.

Sakurai also stated that he was hesitant to add Corrin, as he felt that they had already added too many
Fire Emblem characters, but when speaking with the rest of the Smash team, they assured him that Corrin would be an interesting fighter.

Our Verdict

Elijah Holt
Greetings Gamnesiacs! I'm Elijah Holt, a Associate Editor coming at you live from beautiful Alabama. My love for gaming started at an early age and has ingrained a love for two different gaming companies in my mind. On one side, my love of the Nintendo 64 and my countless hours spent perfecting the first few levels of Super Mario 64 (I was never good enough to get past those...maybe if they release it for the Wii U eShop someday...) resulted in my love for everything Nintendo; meanwhile, I also owned an original PlayStation, which has resulted in me currently owning a PS3 and PS4 for a few Sony exclusives and third-party titles. I'm a recent graduate of Auburn University, where I majored in Software Engineering. I currently work in DevOps as an Automation Engineer. I look forward to continuing to provide the finest content on the internet to loyal Gamnesia readers like you. Want to contact me? You can always shoot me an email at ewh1995@yahoo.com
