The Fire Emblem franchise is enjoying a moment of great success and Nintendo fans are eagerly awaiting the release of Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes. In the meantime, Fire Emblem: Three Houses and Fire Emblem Heroes both continue to be successful and popular games in the Fire Emblem franchise to hold fans over until Three Hopes releases on June 24th.
Fire Emblem: Three Houses, released in July 2019, is still a hugely popular game with fans of the franchise all over the world, but players are hungry for new Fire Emblem content and are hoping for a completely new game to release soon. Three Houses is a turned-based strategy game as well as an RPG with team-building and professorship mechanics that is unique in its story and gameplay, and fans are hoping for something similarly refreshing in a new Fire Emblem release.
Luckily, fans have something to look forward to as Kelly Rogers, known Nintendo leaker and contributor to the Nintendo World Report, divulges some details about a new Fire Emblem game coming to the Nintendo Switch that has already completed development. She indicates that the game was intended to be part of the celebration for Fire Emblem‘s 30th anniversary and reveals some details about graphics, characters, and even a new gameplay “gimmick.” The news is definitely welcome for fans of the franchise and is detailed fully from Famiboards below.
Rogers states that the game is a collaborative effort between Intelligent Systems, Warriors developer Koei Tecmo, and Gust — a division of Koei Tecmo and creators of the Atelier series. The detail about Emblems being used to summon Fire Emblem characters sounds interesting and like it will give the game a depth and complexity. Also, Gust’s cel-shaded visual style should add a fascinating new look to the Fire Emblem universe.
The question that arises is: if the game has been ready for over a year, when will it release for the Nintendo Switch? Rogers’s post does not reveal anything about a release window or even a prediction, but it is safe to say that Fire Emblems games draw enough attention that even without too much information about the game, fans will be excited to flock to retailers to pick the game up for themselves.
It is true that rumors and speculation about games can be dangerous, but Kelly Rogers is known to provide accurate information about Nintendo leaks, so fans can look forward to hearing more news about a new Fire Emblem game soon.
