New Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Coming to 3DS (VIDEO)

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is coming! It is a re-imagined Fire Emblem Gaiden, the 2nd in the series, which never came to the U.S. The 3DS game was announced during the most recent Nintendo Direct presentation. It will be released on May 19th of this year according to Nintendo. Also announced was a two pack of Amiibo game characters, Alm and Celica, which are set for release that same day.

Included in this Nintendo direct was a trailer for the new game that gives us a little history. Shadows of Valentia will have the same cast as Fire Emblem Gaiden and will have some features that aren’t the usual, like full voice acting and dungeon crawling. The different versions of the last game, Fire Emblem Fates, were just released in February of last year and Birthright was personally my favorite 3DS game. We are definitely excited for the newest in the series!

There are also 2 new games coming to the Switch, Fire Emblem Warriors and an untitled project coming next year. It will be the first Fire Emblem game to come out on a home console since Radiant Dawn on the Wii. Warriors looks amazing and will also be available for the 3DS. Another brand new game, Fire Emblem Heroes will be the first for all smart devices and it is beautiful! Check out the full Nintendo direct below.
