Poll Results Summary
A summary of some recent polls since nothing else is going on publicly (everyone is hard at work behind the scenes):
Fire Emblem 7 and 8 are the most played games, being almost equal. Given Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones' release for the 3DS Ambassador program, FE8 might get a little more playing done for it than FE7. FE9 and FE10 follow a little behind, with FE4 being the most commonly played "old generation" game (i.e. between FE1-5). Unsurprisingly a good portion of people have played FE6 despite it being a Japan-only release due to the long-time existent translation patch for it.
While a majority of people will NOT use the game's online functions, we intend to do whatever we can to make it so people CAN use it in English, to the best of our capability. The poll was close anyway, and we tend to favor doing a good job over a lazier one, so unless the poll said like 90% of people won't use online functions, we'd still end up translating it.
Lastly, Marth and Lyn are the two most wanted Fire Emblem characters in the next Super Smash Bros. game, followed by a good portion of people wanting the return of Ike, with decent support for Hector, Ephraim, Eirika, Roy, and Micaiah (other main characters, really).
