News On Fire Emblem (As of 5/7/18)

Published May 8, 2018 by Amanda B. Greene

Fire Emblem Switch is one of the highest anticipated games of this year (or at least for me anyways), but there are still sparse details on what the next installment will entail. However, it is still confirmed to release in 2018, according to multiple articles like US Gamer.

For Fire Emblem Warriors, there was an interview with the game director from Koei Tecmo saying that while they would like to do a sequel, it is not going to happen any time soon for multiple reasons. If you would like to read about it, click on the article by Destructoid.

Fire Emblem Heroes will be getting a big update starting tomorrow on May 8th, 2018. You can read Siliconera’s summary of the added or updated content right here.

That is all for now for current news on the franchise, but I hope that we will get more information soon on Fire Emblem Switch. June is coming up, so expect some E3 announcements in the next couple of weeks. Nintendo will be largely focused on Super Smash Bros., which is exciting. Thanks for reading!

Fun: Valentine’s Day Rinea

Published April 25, 2018 by Amanda B. Greene

I created this over the course of a few weeks, trying to practice my Adobe Illustrator skills, and finished right in time for Valentine’s Day. With the Fire Emblem community, many had the great idea of doing a “Valentian Valentines” themed banner for more Echoes characters in Fire Emblem Heroes. Of course, that didn’t happen, but people had fun thinking about it. So, I felt inspired and felt that Rinea would be perfect for this…

The mobile game, Fire Emblem Heroes, has been gaining more popularity lately as more fans, new and old alike, are joining in as updates continue to come in. It has improved greatly since it first came out, so I thought it would be a perfect time to review it. I’ve been playing Heroes a lot ever since they released the special characters voted on from the Choose Your Legends event. So, let’s get started!

Review: Fire Emblem Echoes

Published June 2, 2017 by Amanda B. Greene

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, or Echoes for short, is the latest game entry in the Fire Emblem series that released on May 19th, 2017. It actually goes back to the roots by essentially recreating Fire Emblem Gaiden, the second game of the franchise that was only released in Japan in 1992. What made that one special was how it did things differently from the others like having dungeons. Now everyone can experience the great story and gameplay worldwide on the Nintendo 3DS.

I highly recommend Echoes, though if you are completely new to Fire Emblem, you may want to start with Awakening and Fates first to get a better idea of where the franchise is mostly headed. Echoes has a harder difficulty reminiscent of old Fire Emblem games, so keep that in mind. Without further ado, let’s get started.

Review(s): Fire Emblem Fates

Published December 22, 2016 by Amanda B. Greene

Fire Emblem Fates is the latest game in the Fire Emblem series that came out in February 2016 for the United States. It is a tactical, turn-based role-playing game. I meant to have my review done sooner, but it just took me awhile to beat the games. In Fire Emblem Fates, all three paths are fun to play and have something special going for each. I think my favorite out of the three is between Conquest and Revelations… sorry Hoshido. Anyways, Fire Emblem Fates is another great addition to the Fire Emblem series with its unique approach that is worth playing.

Fire Emblem If is now changed to Fire Emblem Fates for the west. I’m unsure how I feel about the English voices (especially male Kamui), but other than that this trailer is making the long 2016 wait even more painful. It keeps looking better with every update… I need this game. Anyways, here it is:

Special: How do you feel about Fire Emblem X Shin Megami Tensei?

Published April 26, 2015 by Amanda B. Greene

When this game was first announced, the “trailer” only showed a cast of characters from both the Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem series in their original artworks and then at end there was something supernatural happening in a modern city.

Then it was awhile (three years?) before having any sort of updates, so many people believed the project was canceled. There was at least one post on GameInformer and other sites saying that “it’s on schedule” but nothing else besides that.

With the last Nintendo Direct, we finally got a real trailer confirming its existence and showing off some cutscenes and gameplay. There are many who are excited while others have concerns, like how it looks more like the Persona series than anything else. How do you feel about it? I’ll tell you some of my thoughts… Read the rest of this entry →
