Roy was a clone of Marth. Smash 4 Roy is decidedly different, in the same way that Luigi is no longer just a clone of Mario.

Spoiler.
the fact that roy has an echo fighter makes him feel more legitimate somehow. like it moves him out of marth's shadow a little bit to be considered a character unique enough to base another character on (if that makes sense).

The series can do a lot better than characters that technically also have other weapons or that were formerly clones of other characters, though. It isn't the biggest deal in the world, but it's disappointing that a series that's previously been willing to take characters that huge parts of their audience would never have heard of before is playing it so safe with what's now one of Nintendo's most popular franchises.

Though I'd level the same complaint about Zelda - that series can do a lot better than three Links.

I wonder if the Belmonts' whips can grab swords....

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

I vote for Mòrag for Smash 4. She uses Brighid, Aegeon, and Finch in a stance system.

Final smash: She simply says "Get 'em, boys!" and a bunch of Mor Ardainian soldiers yelling "THINK YOU CAN TAKE ME?" "DON'T FERGET ME!" and "You're done!" over each other flood the stage.

Is he actually Roy's Echo though? From what I saw it looked like he had moves from multiple FE characters (Roy/Marth's Dancing Blade, Ike's Aether, etc).

I am irrationally happy by the return of Spear Pillar. I know not a lot of people here particularly enjoy it, but it might be the one stage that was at the top of my wishlist.

yeah i feel that way about mushroom kingdom 2

the good news is that now that there's battlefield and omega forms in addition to a stage hazard toggle, its a lot easier to convince your friends to play on your favorite bs stages

Oh man, Fourside is back?! I loved that level. When I was a kid, I loved having Bowser and Donkey Kong duke it out giant-sized to reenact Godzilla vs. King Kong.

I also have a guilty pleasure for Big Blue. Missed that stage too.

Wow, this one's actually scheduled for a time when I'm not at work.

I was just informed today that I'll be on a cruise when Ultimate drops. I'm not one to complain about being taken on a Caribbean vacation but you have got to be fu$%#@& kidding me. Of all places to be: the middle of the ocean.
