Will we see Fire Emblem: Three Houses character Edelgard in Smash Bros Ultimate? One leak suggests so. A Smash Ultimate DLC leak from November 2018 which correctly predicted Joker in Smash Bros Ultimate also mentioned some other characters. One of these was Edelgard- one of the main characters from the upcoming Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
Edelgard in Smash Bros Ultimate Leak
The Smash Bros Ultimate leak originally came from a 4chan post back in November. The leak brought up a range of new potential DLC characters. These include Sylux, Banjo Kazooie, Neku, and Crono, along with Edelgard.
Edelgard is a character from the upcoming Fire Emblem: Three Houses. This is the first Fire Emblem to appear on a home console since Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn on the Nintendo Wii.
The game is set to innovate the series. It’ll feature battles which involve commanding troops alongside individual units. Edelgard is one of three main characters the game follows. She uses swords, axes, and magic in battle, which would make for an interesting Smash Bros Ultimate moveset.
Of course, all leaks should be taken with a grain of salt as many turn out to be false. However, the possibility of Edelgard in Smash Bros Ultimate is still intriguing.
Another Fire Emblem Character in Smash Bros?
With Chrom making the Super Smash Bros Ultimate roster, there are now 7 Fire Emblem characters in Smash Bros. Many of these characters rely on similar moves involving swords- is there really room for another?
Edelgard doesn’t seem like the most likely addition to the DLC roster. However, with Three Houses being one of the biggest upcoming Switch games of 2019, it’s not out of the question.
Other DLC leaks involve characters such as the DOOM Marine and Minecraft Steve. Right now, the most likely next character appears to be Erdrick from Dragon Quest. We’ll see what Smash Bros Ultimate DLC news rolls out over the upcoming months.
