This could go in Video Games, Fire Emblem General Discussion, or FE9-10 discussion, so I just tucked it in the announcements instead. XD Mods, feel free to move it or something.
Right now there isn't really much in the way of news since it was JUST revealed and it's the middle of the night, but the official site has a section on him, and the quote on Miiverse is apparently
"Pic of the day. Ike, the swordsman of magnificent strength, joins the battle!! Strike your foes down with his powerful smash attacks.
For this game, Ike's design is based on the hero that appears in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. His sword deals heavy damage in Smash Bros., so this design suits him very well! Rest assured, he can use Aether as well. "
Though I can't find it, XD.
Man, this is great.
Time to quote my fanboying.

[2:46:47 AM] ballin1337: lol
[2:46:55 AM] ballin1337: oh gosh I'm so happy
[2:47:03 AM] ballin1337: I still want a new Fire Emblem character, of course
[2:47:08 AM] ballin1337: and will be disappointed if we don't get one
[2:47:15 AM] ballin1337: but that doesn't make me any less happy about Ike, really
[2:47:41 AM] ballin1337: the design is pretty cool too, even if the younger, slimmer, faster design is cool in its own right, this one makes him a bit more unique I think
