Fire Emblem's Ike playable in Smash Bros. Brawl

The official blog for Super Smash Bros. Brawl has pulled the wraps off of the newest playable character in the game: Ike from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. His special move is called "Aether," which he uses to finish his enemies off with a single sword blow. Let's just pray that none of his opponents come equipped with a lance.

In other SSBB news, Animal Crossing's "Pitfall" will be one of the items, and Donkey Kong's "Final Smash" attack involves whipping out a set of bongos and "jamming." As a side effect of jamming though, DK starts annoying people at open mics and sells all his used CDs so he can follow Phish around, which is a level of realism we're just not ready for.
