From "Fire Emblem" comes Marth! Have
the fans been waiting for this? Have
Although, it wasn't easy. Marth isn't
only a Nintendo Character, and the Fire
Emblem series was never released
internationally. Well, we went out on a
limb to do this for thee fans who
really wanted him.
("Out on a Limb"
means that we had to get help from more
people, even those other than Intelligent
had prepared to drop Marth from the
international version. But after gaining
the admiration of their people, the end
result was that we left him in just like
the Japanese Version and released it..
(Although, his voice is still Japanese in
the International Version.)
Because both he and Link carry swords,
we tried to make Marth different by giving
him a "Fowing" use of the sword.
When designing the Motion of a
Character, it is obvious that they are
given movements that reflect our goal, but
it is also supposed to give the player a
certain feel for the character when they
operate them. And just so players can get
an extra feel for Marth, we have added the
feature where attacks that hit the tip of
th Sword are stronger.
This is a technique worth remembering
for Marth users. Attack enemies by sliding
about to build up damage. It would be good
to think of strategies where you can just
jump into battles, of course, after
noticing the surroundings first.
So, Marth is powerful (if you do it
right), and has a long reach, although
there are times when not having reach with
the sword could be good. He is also
lightweight, and has an extremly weak
throw. His attacks lose strength with
distance, and you could say that he has a
weak Return Attack.
