Last month, Nintendo revealed the next entry in their Fire Emblem franchise. Just as with Shadow Dragon this game will be developed by Intelligent Studios. It will be a remake of an earlier game released only for the Super Famicom in Japan.
The game’s official site has now been launched, and offers the first solid details about the game.
The full title of the game translates to Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem — Hero of Light and Shadow (I expect the western localizations will have a shorter title).
In a rather interesting change of pace for the franchise, players will be able to fully customize the appearance, name, and gender of the main character, an aspect known as “My Unit”. Besides this, Marth will still be a central character.
This game launches in Japan next month, on 15 July. No other release dates have been confirmed.
The trailer for the game follows:
