Ike has been officially announced as a character in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. 4, which is coming out for the Nintendo 3DS in the summer and Wii U in this winter.

Ike’s addition means that a purported full character list that was circulating online was wrong, because the Fire Emblem character was not on it.

Ike’s design is be based off his appearance in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn.

He’s seen in the screenshot below with the Female Villager on the Battlefield stage.

Game director Masahiro Sakurai shared the screenshots.

“Ike, the swordsman of magnificent strength, joins the battle!! Strike your foes down with his powerful smash attacks,” he said.

“His sword deals heavy damage in Smash Bros., so this design suits him very well! Rest assured, he can use Aether as well.”
