While not announced ceremoniously, when asked on twitter if 8-4 would be involved in the localization of the latest entry in the Fire Emblem franchise, Fire Emblem Echoes, co-founder John Ricciardi confirmed yes. While Fire Emblem Fates met with both great reception and sales, its localization however was met with mixed to a very negative reception due to heavy handed script re-writing, changing some of the characterizations and outright censorship that had some elements removed entirely.
While Fire Emblem Awakening, the title prior to Fire Emblem Fates which was localized by 8-4 had its localization, outside of some criticism of some of changes in the character convos, met with a mostly positive reception. So this revelation may come as some great news to many Fire Emblem fans. Please share your thoughts below in the comment section.
Fire Emblem Echoes is a Nintendo 3DS exclusive and will arrive in the West on May 19 of this year.
