Calm down your hype, Marth is still master race. I think, anyways. I'm really interested in how Roy has changed and how he will play with the Brawl cast. Kind of off topic, but there's not as much hype and respect for the clone engine as much as there is for Roy himself. :(

As an FE Nerd, having three beloved characters is like a dream come true. As someone beginning to become competitive, Ike and Marth are both S tier for their own reasons, and it seems that Roy could advance to a top seat with some of his new combos and aerial game. Regardless, Ike for life baby (y)

I always loved Roy as much as Marth... I'm looking forward to how the PM team will make him. Hoping to secondary him next to my trusted Zelda. Dreams do come true.

I don't even care if he isn't better than Marth, I've always thought Roy was cooler. Also it's cool to see all 3 FE lords on one roster finally.

Na son, we need to add Lyn and permahack Hector over Ike.

EDIT: And change Marth to Chrom (which I hope they do for SSB4).

I'm interested in getting him in my hands to really see what's changed. Going to be fun switching between Marth, Ike, and Roy.

Aside from the obvious Double Edge Dance changes, I believe I spotted:
- New B-Air
- New D-Smash
- New N-Air
- Wall-jump out of Blazer NOPE

Only took like 3 years under the hood to finish him

No joke. They were working on Roy back in the early days. Its taken all this time to get him done.

There is no wall jump. That was a wall tech.

That was definitely a wall jump tech. Charizard hit him into the side of the stage. He did have a different up-tilt, though.
That was my first guess. Wasn't too sure because it happened pretty quick. Post edited.

The idea of Roy never dawned on me until I saw the actual castle in Castle Siege and when I saw his boots and Sword of Seals... This was like a love note to Sethlon.

Actually though, Roy is awesome news, but the clone engine is what really blows me away. Is it a true clone engine, where multiple new characters can be added (here's looking at Mewtwo) or did the PMBR just manage to make an extra character slot out of PokeTrainer and workaround all the bugs associated with putting a character in that slot?

YEAH! Finally!

I tried to main Roy in Melee, but I kept getting myself destroyed by Foxes, Marths, and even LINKS!

Hopefully this is a tougher Roy that I can get comfortable and good with! I have a placeholder main MARIO for the time being. With a Wario second. But Roy could easily be above those two, especially because I don't use him in Melee anymore, and he's not in Brawl.

Keep up the good work PM team! Can't wait for that PM version that includes Roy to come out! (hopefully before January!)

Doc has been incorporated into Mario's moveset, and young link into Tlink's so I doubt they will see a return. It took PMBR literally years to get Roy in, so I think they wouldn't be putting a ton more into the game. Between Pichu and M2, it looks like M2 has a much higher demand, therefor a larger chance of being included.

Marth is the original Fire Emblem lord. It doesn't make much sense to replace him.

Yeah, maybe in Japan he has earned that sort of respect/god status but certainly not in America. Marth/Roy weren't even going to be in the NA Melee originally. Objectively, Marth is a faceless, generic, hero with very little development, and he isn't even epic/exciting/anything in his games. Also Chrom is an excellent character that has been received excellently. Of course, they likely won't do it (but I'm not entirely sure how rabid Japan is about Marth, I know they like Chrom a lot too). I'd be very happy with even a cannon Marth skin as Lucina and/or replacing Ike with Chrom (Ike is definitely toast). Man, I would love cannon alt costumes in SSB4.

Just confirmed it in the other thread, Roy can turn around during his DED; it wasn't a another DED, or a new neutral b.

Sometimes I don't understand the Project: M mindset.
They revamp Sonic, Lucas, Lucario, Charizard, Ivysaur, and especially Wario, but they re-clone Falco and make little change to Ganondorf, and Toon Link.
And now Roy looks more or less unchanged.

That said, I'm looking forward to playing Roy in P:M, as well as everything else in the next update.

No way man!? They changed the brawl characters?!!/sarcasm Every melee high tier is basically cloned. Gdorf is massively improved but plays the same as Melee dorf and Tink plays a lot like Yink mixed witth Tink. Also Roy looks 100% better.

Roy may have a lot of similar looking moves but does not look the same. He looks far more agile and actually able to combo now. His combo game looks super stylin' and fun.
