The wait for new Fire Emblem: Three Houses information has been painful for fans, but we can breathe a sigh of relief for now. During the February 2019 Nintendo Direct, we got our first look at the brand new Switch title since its E3 2018 debut.
The new trailer seems to open where the last one left off, with the mysterious young green-haired girl–presumably a dragon, because of her pointy ears–waking up from her slumber. Well, we’ve had dragons sleeping for centuries with Tiki, but 200+ days is quite a long time for us humans to wait!
As we suspected, this girl isn’t Tiki herself, but a brand new character that we later learn is called Sothis. She seems a bit surprised to see you here–and we’ll learn why later.
Right afterwards, we’re shown the game’s logo, which has been slightly updated. In particular, the “Three Houses” text now has a fancier, cursive font. The Japanese logo has been updated too, with the “moon” kanji (getsu) resembling a crescent moon.
It’s not just the logo that’s different, the world map of Fodlan has a few changes too. Most notably, the name of the three key nations–and the name of the continent itself–have been updated with their English translations.
It’s been a long time coming, but we finally have new, concrete details about the official English version of the first Vestaria Saga game!
For the uninitiated, Vestaria Saga is an indie Strategy RPG developed by S_Kaga and Vestaria Project, created using SRPG Studio. Despite its humble appearances, it’s an incredibly well-crafted game, with devious puzzle-like gameplay and a rich story.
Originally, the game was released in September 2016 and, surprisingly, an English translation was teased in August 2017, nearly a year ago. Now we know that Dangen Entertainment is behind the English translation and it’ll be 2019 before it releases.
However to ease the wait slightly, a one-stage demo is planned to be released in the coming days. If you’re interested, check out the game’s Steam page, where you can download the demo once it becomes available.
Also, we’re currently looking to ask Dangen Entertainment some questions about the translation and acquisition of Vestaria Saga. If you have any burning questions you’d like to ask them, feel free to post in the comments!
Following last week’s Awakening characters trailer, the Fire Emblem Warriors Twitter has dropped two more trailers showcasing all of the currently-revealed warriors from Fates.
Trailer number 2 features the black-clad royals from Nohr.
Meanwhile, the 3rd trailer highlights the Hoshidan royals–and features our first look at Sakura in motion.
In other news, there have been rumours about a new image of the European limited edition boxart revealing the full roster (the main one anyway), including a couple of yet-to-be-announced characters.
Although we generally don’t report our rumours, this one is fairly substantial and has been slowly gaining traction, so we might as well grab our magnifying lens to take a look…
Today, the Fire Emblem Warriors Twitter posted another action-packed trailer, this one featuring all the currently-revealed warriors from Awakening.
The trailer is advertised as “number 1”, so presumably there will be similar trailers for the Fates
and Shadow Dragon
Moving on, Warriors will be coming to TGS (Tokyo Games Show) in Japan between 21st to 24th September. Of note, it will be showcased on Koei Tecmo’s main stage and livestreamed on Niconico on all four days.
According to the stage schedule, there will be announcements of new hero(es) on the 21st and 23rd. Various voice actors, such as for Marth, Xander and Lianna will be present. The other days will feature gameplay and other new information.
Following the release of this week’s Famitsu, the game’s official Japanese website has updated with profiles for male Corrin, Elise and Sakura, as well as screenshots of the badge/emblem and forging systems. Read more
