During his weekly Famitsu column, Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai discussed Fire Emblem Fates protagonist Corrin being added to Smash Bros. as DLC. He stated that during Smash Bros.' DLC development, the team wanted to include a character from a game that had either just been released or would release soon; Fire Emblem Fates fit the bill, as it was recently released in Japan and was coming to the US soon.

Sakurai also stated that he was hesitant to add Corrin, as he felt that they had already added too many Fire Emblem characters, but when speaking with the rest of the Smash team, they assured him that Corrin would be an interesting fighter.
