Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai has clarified a few of the differences between Lucina and Marth after yesterday’s character reveals. For those who are unfamiliar with Fire Emblem: Awakening, the two characters are interlinked throughout the RPG story but have significant differences, particularly in their weapon stance. Though the game’s director says their physical abilities are exactly the same, players will feel subtle changes in the way both characters fight. Here’s what he said on Miiverse:
“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.”
Despite Lucina and Marth owning the same D.N.A, Sakurai adds that the smallest change to the way each character fights is enough to give them a separate character slot. Plus, he also reveals Lucina has a tiny albeit significant feature that differentiates her from 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 way…there’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.”

Nintendo’s immensely well-received Fire Emblem Awakening has apparently shifted over one million units. This is the first time that the franchise has managed this impressive feat. Fire Emblem Awakening actually broke 1 million units sold a while ago, if digital sales are taken into account. Nintendo has previously said that 30% of the initial sales of Fire Emblem Awakening were digital. Clearly this is great news, as Nintendo stated that they may ditch the series if the game didn’t sell over 250,000 units in North America.
