Fire Emblem if | oprainfall

A pre-order listing has appeared at for a new, unspecified Fire Emblem title. The release date shown is December 31 2015, but that’s likely a placeholder, which is a typical Amazon practice when they want to open up pre-orders and don’t have a confirmed date yet. The Amazon listing is probably for the forthcoming Fire Emblem if, but there is presently only one item available for reserve despite there being three titles in the series. The Amazon page is a real thing, and, if you’re interested in showing your support for Fire Emblem, there are worse things you could do than go and get on the list. While this hasn’t appeared on the American Amazon site yet, it’s a good bet it’ll show up soon there, as well.

Fire Emblem if is actually three separate titles, Fire Emblem if: Byakuya Okoku (or White Knight Kingdom) and Fire Emblem if: Anya Okoku (or Dark Knight Kingdom). In Byakuya Okoku, you choose to ally with the peaceful nation of Hoshido and, in Anya Okoku, you join forces with the proud kingdom of Nohr. There is also a master version slated for release further down the road that includes both games and a third campaign. The two separate titles are scheduled for a June release in Japan and for 2016 in the West. There’s no word yet on when the compilation edition is slated to launch.

If the pre-order isn’t enough to whet your appetite for now, enjoy the preview video for Fire Emblem if from Nintendo below:


About Tom Tolios

Really smart, talks too much, loves the video games and the Star Wars and the Game of Thrones, likes the manga and some anime and knows that Kentaro Miura's Berserk is the greatest thing ever made.

    The preorder has been there for long time (A little after it was first announced) since the latest Nintendo Direct they added a picture and raised the price to 49.99 as it was listed as 44.99 before

    And because there will be 2 different version of the game there are possibilities that preorder of this listing will be cancelled however they honor the price you would have paid if it was lower toward the new preorder of the version chosen they usually send a notice email of the change.

    It’s not quite confirmed how they are going to handle the multiple version thing in the US. Personal opinion, but I think it’s more likely for US/international release they’ll just release one version like the Japan digital where you choose your path in chapter 6. But nothing’s been announced yet. Having multiple versions of the story line with alternate levels like sacred stone would be cool, but I’m honestly not sure how the dlc part will be recieved to pay more money to play 3 different playthrough campaigns. My only hope is that quality is sacrificed for quantity and we end up with more levels but a weaker story. Again personal opinion, but I kind of feel like that happened with awakenings plot and all the dlc maps. Even though awakening was a good game I hope this game goes more back to fire emblems roots like 7-10 and doesn’t become a watered down pay-to-play hollowed version of what FE can truly be. Let’s hope it ends up as good as the initial plot premise sounds.

      edit- that quantity is NOT sacrificed for quantity. That phrasing sort of makes a big difference.
