Lucina Attack Strength Is Much More Balanced Than Marth In Super Smash Bros.

Like with Brawl, Sakurai will be providing daily updates on the development progress of Super Smash Bros For Wii U and 3DS through Miiverse. Yesterday, Sakurai revealed that Rayman will appear as a trophy in Super Smash bros For Wii U and 3DS. And not only that, 3 characters were revealed. Robin and Lucina from Fire Emblem Awakening will be joining the battle for the very first time. Also we have confirmation that the veteran – Captain Falcon – will be rejoining the battle.

Today, Sakurai detailed the differences between Lucina and Marth. Firstly, Sakurai revealed that Lucina’s and Marth have the same abilities – which might explain why Chrom was excluded as a playable character. However, Lucina has a few key differences. Lucina attack strength is more balanced throughout the weapon, whereas Marth strength lies at the tip, making spacing less important in her play style.

Pic of the day. Along with Robin, Lucina joins the battle!! Her physical ablilites are identical to Marth’s–it must be in her D.N.A. However, where Marth’s power is concentrated in the tip of the sword, Lucina’s attack strength is balanced throughout the weapon, which might make her easier to control. She’s also a little bit shorter than Marth.

With the Wii Fit Trainers, the male and female Robins, the Villagers, and Little Mac, varying their appearances and voices works just like selecting alternate color variations. However, whenever there is even a small difference in abilities, that character gets an actual roster slot. That is why you can select Lucina individually.

By the waythere’s probably no chance you’ll be able to see this in the game, but Lucina has the mark of Naga in her left eye.
