So, people were asking about the new Smash Bros. games in the related thread in the news board, so I thought I'd create a thread here on the games where the confirmed information can be posted for us to see.

- Marth is now using his Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem design.
- Skull Kid is confirmed as a new Assist Trophy.
- Ashley from WarioWare is confirmed as a new Assist Trophy.
- Bottled Fairy from Zelda is confirmed as a new item (though it's unknown if it's replacing the Heart Container).
This is all of the information I can recall so far. If anyone knows of anything I missed, let me know and I'll add it here. :)
I've got my fingers crossed for Ike staying playable, Chrom and Ghirahim added to the roster, and Kauku Caves and Riven Bridge from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn and Treacherous Mansion from Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon as new stages! ^^
I'd also LOVE to see Frederick from FE: Awakening as an assist trophy, but I don't have my hopes up REAL high for that. I just totally adore him. <3
