There are "over 40" classes, which may or may not count promotion (FE8 has 46+3 enemy only+21 monsters, with 18 unpromoted+3 trainees)

Also mentions fast skipping battles on a fight by fight basis is an option. May be more info on dual attacks and My Unit.

Oh, nice, thanks!

Now I really want this to hop over. Maybe Casual Mode will help get people playing on this end.

According to the article, units class change at a certain level. I'm guessing that that means "Bye-bye!" for promotion items.

Not necessarily. FE10 had auto promotion at level 20+1, but master seals/crowns existed too.

I really want this game. I'm seriously willing to buy a 3DS for this thing.

I am cool with that. It's annoying having to wait for a promotion item when you have a character sitting at 20/0

Not necessarily. FE10 had auto promotion at level 20+1, but master seals/crowns existed too.


Either way, I'm fine with not needing promotion items.

Oh, that's right. I completely forgot about that. :U

The fact that Casual Mode is returning isn't too much of a surprise. It serves as a way to invite more people into the series, and bring in people that might've been turned off because of permadeath.

I was also hoping that someone out there would have article scans. The people at this site would've already picked the article apart for anything else the news site might've missed.

Hmm... Maeda was the director of FE12? I wonder what his involvement was in FESD...

Anyways, I honestly have no qualms against having a separate Casual Mode, as long as Classic still remains. Also, Tactician class? Maybe that's My Unit's class, since so far we haven't been able to see whether or not MU can change between different classes. If that's so, then I'd say that's at least a step in the right direction.

I've seen scans; I'm currently writing up a report.

I can confirm that My Unit is a "Strategist" that wields magic and swords. Looks like I was right that their class is fixed o__o

Magic and swords? Let's hope that he's competent in both.

And I'd also like if he's not forced. More unforced deployment slots = better.

Report finished for now.

Hmm, I can't load this image which might be a scan. Japanese image servers can be really hit and miss sometimes >___<

Here's a snippet with My Unit though.

Oh, neat!

I mean, I would've preferred a choosable class but I've been waiting for another magic and sword class in a newer game!

Somebody want to help me load an image? Be warned that it might be completely useless or, at worst, NSFW.

Send me a PM if interested : o

Edit: nevermind, gotta go.
