Fire Emblem | Action

More wonderful things came from today’s Nintendo Direct. We got lots of new information about upcoming DLC and games, but for me the highlight was the new trailer for the as yet unnamed new Fire Emblem 3DS game. One of the exciting announcements in there was that your own avatar is actually the main character in the game, not a pal of the main character, ala Robin and Chrom. It also clarified the story will revolve around two separate kingdoms locked in a climactic battle, the peaceful Hoshido and the war mongering Nohr.

Diverging paths will determine the fate of the kingdoms, which makes me think your choices will alter the story branches more dramatically than in Fire Emblem: Awakening. The protagonist is a child of both Kingdoms, which is sure to make the plot far more twisty than I expected. Will loyalty or blood win out? I’m already super excited for this new title, and this trailer just drives me further into Fire Emblem fanboy madness. Cannot wait for a solid release date, since this one also is slated to release in 2016. Wonder if it will have any functionality with SMT x Fire Emblem?…
