Veteran Marth Returns to Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS

Check out the 18th character finally confirmed for SSB 2014.

Back in June, Super Smash Bros. Director Masahiro Sakurai explained how difficult it is having to choose which characters stay, are removed and are added. Today, Nintendo finally confirmed that Fire Emblem's Marth will be joining Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS. This makes Marth the 18th confirmed character on SSB. 

Marth first appeared on Super Smash Bros. Melee, and later appeared in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Fans anticipated his return, and with Nintendo's confirmation finally here, they are glad and hope to hear more news from Nintendo confirming more characters.

    Just a little editorial note (even though I'm not an editor)... E3 isn't until June 2014. Marth's announcement was just one of Sakurai's regular character reveals via Nintendo Miiverse-

    Thanks changed it. I got a bit confused with E3 that happened June 2013. But that one was about the director and not Marth.

    No prob... and it definitely wouldn't be Smash Bros without Marth! It makes you wonder though if we'll get a second Fire Emblem character and will it be Roy, Ike, or someone new?
