Today, during Nintendo Treehouse’s coverage of Fire Emblem Warriors at E3, we not only got to see about 10 minutes of gameplay, but were also introduced to two new supported amiibo for the game!
Chrom and young Tiki will be joining the amiibo lineup, most likely being released with the game itself.
Additionally, while there was a lot of discussion brought up during the gameplay, some dialogue from Nintendo did make some statements addressing the high volume of sword users and limited characters being available, stating that it will not be something to worry about.
Finally, some pre-orders are up for Fire Emblem Warriors. Click here for the New 3DS version, and here for the Switch version.

For those of you in the UK, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia can now be pre-ordered on the official Nintendo UK Store.
This includes the game itself (which comes with a free T-shirt), the limited edition if you hurry, as well as the new Alm and Celica amiibo.
By the way, don’t forget the European Limited Edition already comes with the two amiibo!
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.
The first section of the website discusses what Echoes is all about–which we all know already. More importantly, it has a couple of interesting comparison screenshots between the original Gaiden and its remake Echoes.
The first ever Fire Emblem Direct started with a bang, giving us Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, a Nintendo 3DS remake of the 2nd game in the series: Fire Emblem Gaiden.
Echoes is scheduled for release in Japan on 20th April 2017, which coincides with the series’s 27th anniversary, and 19th May 2017 in Europe, North America and presumably other territories.
In addition to the game itself, an Amiibo double pack featuring the dual protagonists Alm and Celica will be available from launch.
That’s all the important details from the trailer, but of course we can do better than that! Below is our detailed analysis of the trailer and supporting materials.
