Okay.... so now that the network traffic jam is down a bit, I can see the Smash page now. Lucina, Robin and Falcon are characters on their own, while Chrom is a Robin move. I'm glad in a way, since this can finally shut those fans up who assume stuff based on Melee and Brawl. Maybe it's just me, but I find it annoying that some people sound supportive to some characters just because they seem more likely.
Lucina is the first newcomer without an art piece on the character page, so there's more evidence towards her not being her own slot.
She has her own profile page though. I'm guessing her profile icon isn't wide or anything because she seems to be a total Marth clone, down to the idle animations. Maybe she inherited Roy's stats. Heck her up-B looks pretty horizontal.
Anyway, both a female lord and a tome user? Heck yes, best result possible! I was hoping for both of them even though I didn't think either of them would make it without playable Chrom, but they did and the trailer handled it humorously.

I like how Robin's tomes have durability. The durability system has always been something I want to see making the transition to Smash, although it probably wouldn't make sense with the personal weapons. Can you imagine Roy's sword breaking after a mere 20 uses?
I was worried about Chrom overshadowing these two in too. More the reason to absoutely love today's update. It cast away what little doubt I have remaining towards Smash 3DS/Wii U. Not that I won't by the game without them, but I'll probably feel a little bit bitter if only Chrom makes it in, considering that he will bring relatively little Smash at this point.
I don't know what are the difference between Lucina and Marth right now, though she's probably a clone. This is good news, because clones take far less time to make. She's also effectively a Marth clone in the original game.

For all the talk about a Final Smash, it also strikes me as possible that Chrom is an Assist Trophy. And while I'm not sure on Lucina's smaller main-page icon, I don't expect that to mean anything about her.
Good update, all told, but as I'm not much of a Fire Emblem fan I can't really get too excited. Nice to see Cpn. Falcon return, even though that seemed like a given, and likewise nice to see some newcomers as well. Lucina and Robin look pretty interesting in Smash. Robin especially since his books have durability.
I guess my favorite part in all of this is seeing a FE character that can't be cataloged as "just another sword guy". Most on the topic has pretty much been said by now, but I'm just going to add that I expect Lucina to be an alt costume for Marth and to not have her own separate selection icon.
We know that the tomes have durability, but has there been confirmation on the swords having them as well? It would explain why Robin has both the Levin and the Bronze Sword and both blades have durability, unlike the Ragnell and the (Parallel) Falchion. Maybe he'll end up using more blades, like the Balmung or the Killing Edge, it would be nice to see those blades represented.
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.

nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
