A little bit of catching up here…
Yesterday, the Nintendo Treehouse team played a bit more Fire Emblem Fates; more specifically, the first chapter in the Nohr campaign (after choosing your side).
If you missed the playthrough, you can watch it here.
As usual, I’ve written up a report here.
There’s slightly less new information this time round, compared to thir previous playthrough, but plenty of noteworthy details for fans.
Plus some significant early-game spoilers, so be warned…
I’ve been positively swamped with Fire Emblem content recently, which is never a bad thing.
That said, the more information there is at once, the easier it is to lose track of things.
So before things get even crazier, here is my analysis of the E3 trailer for Genei Ibun Roku #FE (the Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem crossover).
For those curious, I’ve also uploaded the official press kit for people to download here.
The kit includes a couple of screenshots from the trailer, plus several artworks of the game’s characters (and Mirages). Definitely worth a look if you’re at all interested!
Note: If you want to share the press kit, please reupload it elsewhere to avoid causing unnecessary stress on the site. Thanks!
…Or now that the site is (slightly) more stable, you can check the images below the cut.
Following its showing at Nintendo’s E3 Digital Event, Fire Emblem Fates was one of the many games showcased in the Nintendo Treehouse livestream afterwards.
Slightly later than planned, here’s my report of the Treehouse playthrough. Within are several details that can be easily missed.
By the way, if you missed the actual playthrough during the livestream, don’t fret because you can rewatch it here.
Although it’s slightly haphazard, I encourage taking a gander, since it shows a lot of English gameplay–and mostly during an early stage of the game, for those mindful of spoilers.
Nintendo avoided the subject in their E3 trailer, but now we know that Fire Emblem Fates will be releasing as two separate versions in the West, like in Japan.
In their official press statement, Nintendo states this:
Fire Emblem Fates: Two versions of the franchise’s new installment offer players an unprecedented choice: fight an opposing force or join the other side and try to make changes from within. For the first time in the series, players take on the role of the main character and command an army, while struggling to decide which path to follow: helping blood relatives or the family that raised him or her. The game is scheduled to launch in 2016.
Furthermore, poking around in their official E3 site reveals the two versions’ subtitles.
Fresh from the Digital Event, check out the new trailer for Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright & Conquest.
By the way, in case you missed it, Nintendo’s Treehouse Livestream is about to cover Fates in a matter of minutes of this post!
Update: The Fates Treehouse coverage is over for now; I will report the details after I take a brief break…
