To start with, the trailer discusses the story, before moving onto the dungeons, battles, character enhancement and sidestories and finishing with the obligatory montage of thrilling scenes.

From that description (and the links provided), you can probably tell that the trailer doesn’t include a lot of new information to digest. That said, there are some notable highlights.

Genei Ibun Roku #FE: More on Unity and Class-Change

This week’s Famitsu included another feature on Genei Ibun Roku #FE, this time explaining the various methods of enhancing your characters.


If you’ve been following the game recently, you may recall that last week’s Japanese Nintendo Direct briefly touched on these methods; fortunately, Famitsu has a lot more space to go into detail.

To start with, players can visit the “Bloom Palace“, a serene area managed by Tiki, the hugely popular face of the “Singaloid Tiki” software.

Conveniently, the entrance to the Bloom Palace is located past an ordinary-looking door within Fortuna Entertainment, where Itsuki and his friends work.
