Last week, I came up with a list of predictions and then my hopes for the Fire Emblem direct. Let’s review said predictions shall we?
In 2007 at this time, Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn would be released in Japan a month later, and would go on to be the worst selling Fire Emblem in the franchise there and worldwide.
In 2017, on this day, we got the announcement that Fire Emblem Warriors will be a game, and Fire Emblem would be getting a Nintendo Direct.
Seriously, there’s no way any die-hard FE fan could’ve expected the limelight to be this bright back then, and no chance once the second DS iteration of the game was passed over for localization in 2010-2012.
Now, look where we’re at now.
Anyways, will attempt to make a prediction soon, but it’s clear the Fire Emblem mobile and Warriors will be a thing. What else will be in direct? How long is it? Whatever the case is, I’m super excited.
The Fire Emblem Direct will take place on Wednesday, 5PM EST
The newest year of gaming for Fire Emblem kicks off with what is a surprise in timing, not that it happened: Fire Emblem Warriors for Nintendo Switch. No release date yet, and it’s a teaser, but oh man was I hyped.
From what I could tell from the orbs I immediately recognized both Falchions (Awakening and Shadow Dragon), and the Yato. Will have to watch it again to see what the other two were (update, watched it again, definitely Ryoma and Xander’s swords) but if so, then it’s confirmed:
Corrin (both genders)
Now the question is…who will join them!?? Will hope to make a list of characters from each continent that should be in this game over the next couple of weeks. It will probably be from the more famous titles, but still too early to say right now. We’ll have to see more.
