Fire Emblem theme in Brawl

It's a double whammy of updates today on the official Super Smash Bros Brawl site. There's a video of Fox rescuing Diddy Kong from the loch ness monster.

There's also this piece of music inspired by Fire Emblem:

The lyrics are in Latin, but if you were to translate them into English, it would look something like this:

Fire Emblem, companions walk
The endless path together.

In the wavering shadow of spite,
Our home is faced by the oncoming spear,
Engulfed in flames.

I keep that unforgettable day in my heart
And now rise up together with my companions.

Fire Emblem, our bond shall be never broken.

We hold fast to protect tomorrow
And the one who awaits our return.

Fire Emblem, light gathers on the flag we unfurl.

Fire Emblem, we gaze upon the multitude of stars,
Gripping our blades.

If we do not bring light to the darkness in these lands,
The shooting stars will soar over a wasteland.

Fire Emblem, on whom does the morning sun shine
As she climbs over the edge of battle?

I hope you're comparing RAYQUAZA to the Loch Ness Monster.

Ah, Rayquaza, I see you are as territorial as before. But why is it in a lake? It should be up in the ozone layer. *GASP* Is it responsible for global warming because it isn't up in the Ozone layer? Man, I bet you Deoxys is wishing it had that reflector. Anyway looks like Fox might join the Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong Team. The Fire Emblem music is interesting but why is it translated in Latin? Did the English version sound horrible? Anyway double updates are never bad and this brings us how Fox got into this mess and the Battle Siege Stage Song.

Hah I hope it takes Fox that long to turn on his reflector in the game too. Was that a Pokemon in the water?

Cool but not a fan of opera. What happened to the video of diddy, fox and rayquaza?

pichu fan said:

Oh wait, there it is. Sorry I just thought it was the song in the dojo. It said an evil hand, I thought it was master hand they were talking about, but when I saw rayquaza I was so surprised.

Fox actually took out raquaza! That's awesome. I hope more legendaries come, brawl's awesome.

Pokemon couldn't beat raquaza that easily.

WTH, what's Rayquaza doing on earth?! Shouldn't he be in the Ozone layer? He should return now to the sky.

SWEET! That's it.

Raquaza is in the lake to guard it of course.

Elebot said:

The music wasn't great, but it wasn't bad either. As for the video, I think they'd have to try really hard to make one not look impressive. That is the way Pokemon should be portrayed. Death to Diddy Kong.

I thought it was some random lake monster. I haven't played Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald.

I love how they're going all out to create the Adventure Mode. I just wish they'd have some voices to go along with the movies.

Aww. Poor Rayquaza turned evil. I hope you can kill it the old fashioned way.

As if Diddy Kong couldn't save himself.

Aeth said:

Hmm, well maybe the SubSpace Emissary forced Rayquaza out of his original territory (if Rayquaza got stunned by Fox's Reflector it's not going to fare well against a ship over 10 times the size of it). However wouldn't it be cool if for that first part with Fox, Diddy, (and possibly Donkey Kong if he's with them) that you need to escape to the next area by running across the shores of the lake as Rayquaza rises from the lake in the background and does Dragon Pulse?

Avatar

Aeth said:

No frogman, just Rayquaza got PWNED. However we have yet to see how the Pokemon Trainer, Pikachu, and any of the other playable Pokemon characters get involved (I'm sure they're all together, heck, all the Pokemon that are playable probably belong to Pokemon Trainer).

Awesome. I love video and music updates. Fox is bad ass and his moves look cooler than before. Raquaza's in Brawl. The music was awesome too.

Where's donkey kong, shouldn't he be with diddy?

This game cannot come soon enough! I hope I don't suck as Fox in this game too.

RAYQUAZA! I didn't expect that.

Rayquaza was such a surprise! I didn't see that coming.

Well that proves fox can own raquaza.

Dark Star said:

The Rayquaza in the lake bothered me. He is the legendary of the sky. This could mean he allied himself with the SubSpace Army and appears later as a boss or SubSpace Army knocked him out of the sky and he was just in a rage.

SupaYoshi88 said:

I wonder how Diddy appeared there without Donkey Kong. Last we saw in the Subspace videos he was with Donkey Kong chasing down those Goombas and then running into Bowser. Where is Donkey Kong!? Oh, and Rayquaza was kick ass, but he got rocked by Fox.

doglover said:

It'd be funny if when Fox came out he said "Okay, now it's personal!".

Omegamode said:

A possible explanation to why it's in Latin might be that the lyrics were written in Latin first and were never in an English version. He's just translating it so we could understand what they were saying.

Omegamode said:

Please excuse my last comment, I was wrong about the lyrics.

Avatar

RisingPhoenix said:

So another adventure boss is Rayquaza, how awesome. I don't like the fact that Fox teams up with Diddy but why was Diddy with DK earlier in the other vid? This means that there are different teams throughout the game no matter who you pick and it all depends on the storypath you take (Some people didnt know that I bet).

BrothaZ said:

Is raquaza a bad guy in the pokemon series?

Avatar

insultman911 said:

No, he's just an everyday legendary that doesn't like to be disturbed.

frogman said:

Ya sorry Aeth, I've never payed much attention to the pokeman series and didn't know what its name was. I didn't mean that all pokeman got PWNEd (although considering the amount of hatred I've acquired for the series I wish it were so) I just meant that this Rayquaza got pwned. As for my dislike for pokeman, I don't really know how it developed and probably was formed ever since hearing the annoying sounds of Pichu in Melee. He's annoying and he sucks, what a combination.

Nickhead said:

Whoo hoo! They are finally putting pokemon in the subspace emissary.

Avatar

Aeth said:

Rayquaza is simply a Legendary Pokemon, no more, no less. However it is extremely territorial and almost destroyed a whole city going after Deoxys in one of the Pokemon Movies. However remember that generally, Pokemon are not evil, it all depends on who is the Pokemon's trainer. So either the SubSpace Army took control of Rayquaza or Diddy and Fox met Rayquaza and a really bad day.

I love the video, Fox looks awesome.

RisingPhoenix said:

Rayquaza looks so amazing as he flies, the way he swerves and turns. Simply beautiful. I can't wait to fight him.

Avatar

SSBB Obsession said:

If he was guarding the lake or the area (which I agree with) then what was he guarding? A secret base? DK's bananas? Or even a character captured like MetaKnight (notice his absence, and the enemy using his ship?) or even.. NOTE: The following is just my fantasizing dream that hopefully the person is in the game - Captain Olimar and his Pikmin.

Avatar

SSBB Obsession said:

Another thought. This one about "Where is DK!? 1) They split up to cover more ground. 2) DK was captured by the SubSpace army or Bowser (Koopas and Goombas) 3) They were both captured, and Diddy Kong was able to escape 4) They were both captured, both escaped, but DK was recaptured. Or 5) They both got captured, both escaped, and they split up.

Rayquaza might not be a boss, he might be a cutscene only. Don't jump to conclusions.

Super King said:

It's in Latin because Latin is universally non-universal.

WIIPING FOR WII said:

Did you see that diddy had a Nintendo hat, and fox used his pose at the end, like "Come on!".

Avatar

SuperMatt said:

I hope you get to fight rayquaza as a boss. And BrothaZ, he's not evil, he's like territorial.

Zumwan said:

In the pokemon series, there are no bad pokemon, are there?

insultman911 said:

Fox should team up because dk, diddy and fox are all animals.

Avatar

killedkenny said:

The way I see it, the subspace army flew through the atmosphere and Raquaza got pissed (like with deoxys) and tried to destroy the Halberd. Then, he was overpowered and knocked to earth, where he took refuge in the lake (why in donkey kong's world, though? It's kind of weird but cool because pokemon meets the ssbb cast). Because of his territorial nature and because of what NIMIKQ said, he attacked Diddy for getting near the lake and damaged the arwing because the arwing threatened him also.

Woah. You know for some reason it didn't strike me until I watched that video how freaking awesome the graphics are. I can't wait for this game.

Aeth said:

It's alright frogman, just wanted to correct you as not all Pokemon are like Rayquaza. Insultman911, well generally no, Pokemon are neither bad nor good, they are just animals living off pure habit. A Pokemon may adopt the behavior of the trainer who caught it. There are a few Pokemon which are conscious enough to determine what is good or evil, like Team Rocket's Meowth, Ash's Pikachu, Mewtwo, and a few others. If a wild Pokemon acts vicious, then it is most likely you're disturbing it or have entered it's territory and it's trying to chase you out.

The thing is though, what is the supspace trying to do? If they want to claim all the trophies of others then does that make me one of them?! But anyways, we're not all fully sure what they're doing, it might be something to do with legendary pokemon?

Avatar

Aeth said:

I think the SubSpace Army is trying to extend the territory they control. They do this by bringing pieces of worlds, one piece at a time, using the Subspace Bomb. What they then do with the piece of land is unknown.

Does anyone happen to know where I can find the Fire Emblem song lyrics in Latin?

viae sine fine said:

Gamer Z, the lyrics have not been officially published. However, it begins like this: fire emblem, viae sine fine, facile eunt socii. Fire emblem, roads without end, companions walking effortlessly.

Avatar

viae sine fine said:

WOOT! I deciphered the first minute of the song! It goes like this: Fire Emblem, via sine fine, facile eunt socii. Fire Emblem, road without end, comrades walk effortlessly. Umbrae labandi invidiae ac sanguinans diritas villam hastam velavit ignibus ab aditus est. In the wavering shadow of envy and bloodthirsty spite our village is faced by a spear wrapped in fire ego. Illam diem commemorabam nunc junctim cum me socii oririam. I remember that very day, now I will emerge with my comrades Fire Emblem. Nostrum vinculum numquam abruptur. Fire Emblem, our bond shall never be broken.
