The purpose of this thread is to discuss the chances of Fire Emblem Heroes being represented with a playable character in Super Smash Bros 5. Fire Emblem Heroes is a mobile game that launched on February 2, 2017. It is a free to play RPG where the player can summon characters throughout the Fire emblem franchise using a gacha system. It has proven to be a major success both critically and commercially. Having reached over 6,000,000 downloads in its first six months, it is the most played game in the Fire Emblem series. Fire Emblem heroes has also won "Mobile Game of the Year" at the D.I.C.E. awards.
That being said you're probably thinking "can a mobile game really be represented in Smash?". Although the idea does seem rather odd, it's worth noting that Nintendo has had incredible success in the mobile gaming market recently. With this newfound success, is it possible that Sakurai will want to represent Nintendo's mobile games with a playable character in SSB? This thread will help us explore that question.
Who are likely candidates?
Prince of Askr - AlfonseA prince of Askr and member of the Order of Heroes. One of the original three main characters in the game. Being a sword user, it may be difficult to make an original move pool for him in Smash.
Princess of Askr - SharenaA princess of Askr and Alfonse's sister. One of the original three main characters in Fire Emblem Heroes. She primarily uses a spear in battle which would distinguish her from all the other Fire Emblem characters in Smash who all use swords.
Princess of Ice - FjormThe second princess of Nifl, the Kingdom of Ice. The brand new main character in Heroes who was added in book 2. Primarily uses a spear in battle and has ice powers. Of all the major possible playable characters from Heroes, Fjorm probably has the potential for the most unique move pool in Smash. Although she wasn't one of the original main characters, she was still featured heavily in advertisement for book 2 and her image is even used in the current Fire Emblem Heroes app logo.
Embliam Princess - VeronicaImperial princess of the Emblian Empire. The main antagonist of book 1. Primarily uses poisonous magic in battle and has the potential for a very unique move pool in Smash. Although she's an antagonist, Veronica is still a major fan-favorite and was the most popular Heroes original character in the Choose your Legends 2nd poll.
Commander - AnnaA veteran fighter who leads the Order of Heroes. Alfonse and Sharena's commander. One of the three original main characters in Fire Emblem Heroes, as well as a popular recurring character throughout the Fire Emblem series. Primarily uses a Axe in battle which would distinguish her from all the other Fire Emblem characters in Smash who all use swords. Having her become a playable character in Smash would a great option as she can represent the series as a whole.
