Really shows the devs had their priorities straight by focusing on Awakening and Fates instead of the fan favorite classic games.

Nice job on continuously being oblivious Nintendo/KT (whichever one decided it was a good idea)

I think it's rather fair to say that a large proportion of the hype was because it was so out of the blue. Especially with the initial "mostly SD, Awakening and Fates" comment.
Not that she isn't insanely popular with the older members of the fanbase, but I see the surprise contributing a lot.

Some of it is attributed to her popularity yes, but most of it is due to the general surprise.

They said SD, Awakening, and Fates, so everyone immediately thought they had the roster figured out and there would be nothing surprising about the reveal.

In fact, if they had said that they would include bonus characters from the other games, Lyn wouldn't be a surprise at all, because she's so damn popular.

The SD, Awakening, and Fates focus was on everyone's minds, therefore Lyn was a major surprise, therefore more hype generated.

They knew people would heel-turn once they added a character that actually mattered.
Yuri/Shoujo-Ai is the purest love. No questions asked.
Moon is a psychotic lesbian that would do anything for her Lillie.

This is also funny considering that all the diehard Awakening/Fates fanboys damage controlling/caping for KT on comments and threads always claimed something "Awakening and Fates sold way better! Not enough people played the older games!" in response to people ridiculing the roster and wishing for other, more popular characters.

Imagine actually thinking the Tellius games not selling well is a good reason to put Cordelia and Federick in over Ike. In this case, the people who were caping for KT and IS on this were just as cancerous if not more than the people crying over the roster.

You mean mattered to the minority of people complaining right? Cause it's really not that many people.
If you believe in magic and I hope you don't, you always have somebody that will and won't :D.

If that was truly their intention, then the fanbase got played. Lyn is so hype, she may be just the catalyst for me to buy this game (I'd have to get a Switch first).
