Perhaps to officially announce Roy for Super Smash Bros
To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Fire Emblem series, Nintendo will be hosting a festival of love and courage in honor of the franchise.
Scheduled in the program are a number of presentations and appearances including Intelligent Systems developers and character designer for the upcoming title Fire Emblem If, Kozaki Yusuke.
The event also promises 3 special guest appearance. While two guests remain anonymous at the moment, the first name should be familiar to all Nintendo fans. Director of Super Smash Bros. For Wii U and 3DS, Masahiro Sakurai will be making a special appearance during the festival.
To me knowledge, Masahiro Sakurai hasn’t been directly involved with any mainline Fire Emblem games. So it is likely that he will take about the presence of the Fire Emblem cast members in Super Smash Bros. If we are to indulge ourselves in wishful thinking, it could be possible that he might announce a new Smash Bros. Character. Roy anyone?
The 25th Anniversary of Fire and Love – Fire Emblem Festival will be held in Japan between July24 and July 25.
