Originally planned for release by the end of 2016, Fire Emblem Mobile (along with Animal Crossing Mobile) was delayed to “some time before 31st March 2017”, to make space for Nintendo’s other big mobile project, Super Mario Run.
However it seems Nintendo is secretly preparing for its launch, with the introduction of the new official Fire Emblem Facebook page for European markets, plus this cool map discovered by Ehm2k from The Cutting Room Floor.
In truth, we don’t actually know if it’s related to Fire Emblem Mobile, as it was found during a recent datamine of Miitomo, Nintendo’s first mobile app, of all places. Although, in addition to the map, the following image was also found:
The emblem in this image is definitely the same as the one in Fire Emblem Mobile’s logo. Combined with the familiar art style, the chances of the map being from Fire Emblem Mobile as well are incredibly high.
As for what these images are doing in Miitomo, perhaps a Fire Emblem Mobile collaboration is in the works. After all, it would make sense for Nintendo to try and promote its other mobile offerings.
