Nintendo released a Fire Emblem If video showing off the new “My Castle” feature. When you are not out in the battlefield resetting your game because of your mistakes, you can create and explore your own base. You are given free movement throughout your base and can build item or weapon shops. You are also able to hang out with your allies in the hot tub or invite them into your room for some brief Pokémon-Amie–style rubbing time!
You can use streetpass to buy items not usually found in your base from whoever else happens to be carrying a 3DS with this game. My Castle will let you battle other players to show them who is the real Fire Emblem master. It was also announced, that Fire Emblem If will support the Marth, Ike and the two recently released Lucina and Robin amiibos. Using an amiibo on the 3DS, will let you summon these characters in your games. You can check out the trailer in Japanese below:
Fire Emblem If will be released in Japan on June 25. As for those of us in the West, we are supposed to see it in 2016.
