Absolutely Logical Predictions For The Fire Emblem Nintendo Direct

fire-emblemThe Fire Emblem Direct is tomorrow. At 5PM EST. Focused on upcoming Fire Emblem titles.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEee

Ok, shrieking aside, this is a pretty important direct, since it’s expected to showcase some stuff for the future. I can’t exactly know what they will share with the public, but I can guess.

But I’m actually saving my hopes for the end. Now think of this post like the Kickstarter model, but convert the money into time. That’s what I’m doing — however lengthy the direct is, that’s what will be revealed. The shortest direct of an individual game is 6 minutes (The Pokemon Sun and Moon reveal direct), the absolute longest is 39 minutes (Super Smash Bros direct April 2014). Ignoring that Smash is a crossover though, the longest non-crossover was Bayonetta 2 at 30 minutes.

So ascribing to this model, what could possibly be announced in this span of time?

Initial Impressions of Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn

Well, it seems when I brought Radiant Dawn and played it, I apparently had things to say about this game. So…let’s see…I guess this is 2007, 2008ish? (Probably 2008) I was what, maybe in high school? So it seems I had Fire Emblem passion in me at a younger age than now. So here, let me share with you what I wrote in my school notebook, and if you’ve played Radiant Dawn, you tell me what you thought of it as a whole.

…Oh, be warned, I seemed to have been pretty immature when I wrote this.

Left For Dead: Hard, Maniac, & Lunatic Modes in Fire Emblem

I was looking for something related to this post. Note the "was" part.

I was looking for something related to this post. Note the “was” part.

Tired of the static Fire Emblem modes where all you do is just try and outwit your opponents and you’re usually stronger than them in stats? Actually, you’re probably not, considering most of you just like it the way it is, and you want to keep your players alive. Well, too bad. In past FE games — or mostly the ones that never got released in the West —  there was no difficulty levels, but the game was hard anyways. Starting with the unreleased in the West Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade for the GBA, an option to make it harder surfaced…

Let’s just say since then, things have gotten a bit crazier since.

What Fire Emblem Games Should I Cover First?

You should probably assume I’ll be covering Awakening a lot. Just throwing it out there!

The Fire Emblem Franchise

Fire Emblem 1

I said there were 13 games (Since there’s going to be more in the series, will keep this part open ended — Walters) in the Fire Emblem Series in Part I of my what is Fire Emblem post. Well, why force you to go to Wikipedia and search for each one? Without pictures? Well don’t worry, I won’t do that to you. Instead, I will provide the list for you. See how easy that is? Now, let’s get this out of the way, so all you newbies of the franchises and all you FE vets will take a grand look at the series’s history! (Credit for info is from Serenes Forest and Wikipedia.)
