Nintendo have finally unveiled the next challengers for Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS today on a stream on the game’s official website, and it’s Fire Emblem: Awakening’s Lucina and Robin, oh and Captain Falcon makes an appearance too!

Lucina, who we met for the first time in Awakening when it launched on the 3DS early last year will also be joined by Robin, a named version of the character that players create at the beginning of the game who can be played as both a male and a female character, along with Captain Falcon who wasn’t announced during the stream, but appeared on the official roster on the website, brings the Super Smash Bros. character roster to an impressive 36 playable characters.

Unfortunately those hoping for an appearance from Aiden Pearce, Edward Kenway, or Vaas in Super Smash Bros., following the earlier announcement that Rayman will be coming to the game in the form of a trophy, of course will be disappointed, but there’s still hope, right?

Check out the trailer above for all three characters in action.
