Information topic (spoilers)

1516 posts in this topic

Officially, we've 2 more days to go, but unsurprisingly, some fans have already gotten a copy of the game.

This topic is meant to be where new findings are posted, so as to not clutter up the rest of the FE3 DS board. Of course, if it's something huge that deserves its own thread, then feel free to make one. Similarly, if you need to discuss an aspect in depth, a new thread would be preferred.

Key details (pre-release)

  • Remake of Mystery of the Emblem (Book 2)
  • Create your own main character "My Unit" who fights alongside Marth
  • New prologue and sidequest chapters with a larger focus on My Unit
  • Contains a remake of the BS Fire Emblem chapters
  • Four difficulty settings and a new Casual mode, where characters don't permanently die
  • New downloadable episodes

New images

New info for today

Two images from a small booklet that has some general info on the series and this game. You can see some of the revamped maps here.

The class choices for the My Unit creation revealed in the retailer meeting seem to be true (as expected). However, it appears you can indeed Reclass My Unit afterwards like a normal unit. So you can Reclass a male My Unit from Fighter to Pirate. Presumably it also works in going from, say, Archer to Myrmidon (haven't checked yet). This info is from ChinaFE.

Some My Unit details (re)confirmed.

Not sure yet, but he's definitely in the game at least.

Carrying on.

Prologue 6

Frey appears

Battle preparations (5 out, of 8)

Seems to be two columns of options that I can't see

Draug enemy

Cecil joins with 5 Steel weapons

If anybody's bored, they can check out a stream of somebody playing the prologue on USTREAM. I'm following it right now, but I have to get off soon.

EDIT: It's currently off-air I believe. For some reason, they were on Prologue 6, but decided to redo the prologue from scratch the last time I watched.

Also, give me a shout when the ROM is dumped. Just don't link to it of course.

Unconfirmed stuff

First sidequest is 3x

BS FE chapters are available after beating the prologue

Malice is a Myrmidon

Malice image added to the image directory.

The first downloadable episode has Ellerean, Merric, Linde and Etzel playable.

Ellerean's Aries shard boosts Skill and Luck by 1

Aries image added.

So the shards seem to boost stats directly rather than growth rates? Well, I'll take that. It helps immediately but is much less likely to be game breaking.

This game seems to be awesome already! I definitely saw Malice as a myrmidon.

So how does the downloadable content work? Do you just unlock chapters at certain points in the game?

He's USTREAMing right now if anyone cares.

It sounds like you can do them whenver. They seem to be like Trial Maps but with story, like the BS FEs.

Anything interesting happen?

I can see they're on Prologue 7 and Cain is an enemy Cavalier.

They met Marth. I'm not exactly sure what's going on though, lol.

He just beat Prologue 8. It seems that the epilogue is now playing. My Unit is speaking to Katarina.

EDIT: Is the prologue just training for My Unit? It seems like it because of all the playable units he fights (Jagen (well, not really Jagen but you know what I mean), Cain, et cetera).

Looks like battle preparations happen on prologue 8 and there's a new theme for it too.

Actually, I don't think Prologue 8 is the final Prologue chapter. Maybe I missed something coming back and forth from USTREAM to here, but the chapter he is currently on doesn't look like Chapter 1 in the original.

RORO HAS BEEN SHOWN!!! Not sure what's happening though...

I saw Roro but I am not sure what's going on with him.

I couldn't quite read the text properly, but it seems Katarina's real name is Aine. Roro appears in the dialogue and mentions Aine's name.

I see Marth, Draug and Cain in the roster, but I don't know if they joined in Prologue 7 or 8.

Also, this is the last chance for Katarina to appear, assuming the poster was telling the truth.

What class is Roro?

Also isn't MyUnit's class swap unique in that it includes all classes you can turn into in the beginning instead of being be ordered into Light and heavy sets?

Wait, Katarina(Or Aine?) is an enemy?

Female Generals are in the game. It seems the female Reclass group is the same, but with Generals when promoted.

I'll add the image soon.

Oops, I misread Katarina being playable; she's an enemy in the prologue.

So could you class swap your Myunit into a Pirate, Curate or horseman? And I'm sure Katarina will join

Well if Etzel's been confirmed at least in the downloads, he's probably the only Sorcerer again.

I know what my My Unit will reclass to...

Sorry, but I think Katarina got killed off for real in the prologue there.

Wait, Katarina dies?!

I would like someone telling me she's playable, please IS.

Well I saw my unit specifically kill her ingame, I think she really must have been with those bandits. I don't know for certain but maybe she could have just been knocked unconscious.

EDIT: It looks like battle preparations also happen in chapter 1.
