Shadows of Valentia Announces New Video and Bundles for NA and EU

Today, Nintendo posted a new video to their YouTube channel, titled Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia – Two Armies.

This video discusses Alm and Celica’s general involvement in the plot, and also covers many details on the gameplay that new and old fans alike may enjoy coverage of, such as 1~5 range archers, magic ignoring Terrain Effect, magic consuming HP when used, promotion and more.

Echoes: Japanese Official Website Revamped

Ahead of its release in just over a month’s time (in Japan), Nintendo has upgraded the Japanese website for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia with lots of new information.

Some of this information is also covered in this week’s Famitsu, which we’re still waiting to officially come out. Although oddly the website hasn’t bothered explaining the Mila’s Gear feature at all.

Heroes: New Focus, New Paralogue, Gauntlet Wrap-up, Leaks and More!

It’s been a heck of a week for Heroes players, but Nintendo won’t stop their momentum. With the end of Launch Celebration Event and the Blue Crow: Ursula Special Maps, players will need to find new ways to keep their Orb count up. Fortunately, we now have Daily Missions to look forward to, as well as a new Paralogue, Blazing Shadows.

Blazing Shadows is now available, and like all paralogues before it, offer three chapters with three difficulties each, yielding orbs aplenty to drop into your pocket or into the new Banner.

Speaking of the new Banner, we have some exciting new characters to join the spotlight. FE_Heroes_JP Twitter was kind enough to post the official artwork of the newcomers.

Fire Emblem Echoes: New Site and New Video

A few days ago, we were given update that a new Official web-site exists for Fire Emblem Echoes, featuring Shadow of Valentia. This site is just a preview of what’s to come, and it shows; the site is rather barebones. However, the main trailer and several screenshots are available on the site, so there’s definitely something a few things worth checking out.

For bigger news, Nintendo shared a new video for the game today, highlighting new dialogue and showing off more excellent animation and what looks to be a much more developed story from the original.
