Checked the official site and noticed a small update. Behold Marth:

http://www.nintendo..../dlc/index.html

This isn't the same masked Marth we've seen, it's the spirit of the Hero King Marth from another world. After clearing the DLC map you get his talisman/card and he joins your party.


Also, the Communications section got an update. That's where I found the above:

The hair looks significantly more blue than masked marth.

Edit: the artist is Senri Kita, who did the OA for FE9/10.

I believe it was done by a different artist. It names the illustrator I think, but I can't read kanji that well to know if it's a different artist.

EDIT: That's why it looks vaguely familiar. Now that I look at it, I can see how it'd fit the style of Dawn and Radiance.

I was wondering the same thing. I suppose we'll have to wait till the game is released to know for sure. Whether Masked Marth is an impostor or Marth himself, we at least know Marth has been seen wearing his fancy new out-fit without the mask.

Ah! I see. I'll add this to the first post and update the title.

So, a Masked Marth is NPC or maybe enemy?

I'm pissed. They took SSB Marth, which I thought was going to be the standard look for him in future FE games and I liked it, but instead they said "THIS IS WRONG, FIX IT" and gave us girly blue striped yoga pant fucking knee sock leather boots and no muscle whatsoever. I'm also disappointed they couldn't make him more colorful, all I see is blue and a bit of red. Ugh, maybe I don't even want FE13 now.

So what, they're pulling like a KoF13 by giving us an updated version and then the original?

Man, Marth looks like an actual woman in this artwork.

marth has never had a standard look .... compare his look in fe1 to fe3 and then go to fe12 artwork and see the difference
also this game just does things differently and that is the style which they want to go with .
Marth was never colorful it was always blue, red for the inside of the cape and brown for his straps and belt

and fe13=compilation of all the stuff that was good in previous FEs if you don't want to play it your loss
and don't get worked up over how a characters looks

and almost forgot but I wonder if this is how they'll introduce other characters as well like the main lords from previous games
