Echoes: This Week’s Pre-release Videos

In just over a week, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is set to arrive in the West. To keep you occupied for a bit, here’s a recap of this week’s videos and trailers in case you missed them.

Firstly, GameXplain has uploaded two new videos of the English version, including 45 minutes of gameplay from Act 2–the start of Celica’s journey.

We see Celica leaving the Priory on her journey to the Temple of Mila, along with her close friends Mae and Boey (and Genny if you choose to drag her along), and the footage ends after the first sea battle.

Of note, Dracozombies have apparently been renamed to “Necrodragons”, which is neat, although the timing is a bit odd. Similarly, the villainous Dach who’s seized control of Zofia’s seas is now “Barth” (not to be confused Barthe from Binding Blade).

Note: Past here, there are some mild lore spoilers.

Echoes: Japanese Introduction Video + Analysis

As we swiftly approach the Japanese 20th April release of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, Nintendo has added a new 7 minute “introduction” video explaining the game’s key features.

Without further ado, here’s our summary of the video for the benefit of those who aren’t familiar with Japanese. Plus let’s see what hidden details we can find!

Since the video is aimed at all audiences–which includes newcomers–it begins with the very basics, such as the warring nations Rigel and Zofia, as well as the two protagonists stuck in the middle: Alm and Celica.

Moving on, we reach the battlefield, where we’re told of the various unit classes that appear in Echoes. This is where the magnifying glass first gets some proper action. In the Cavalier demonstration, there are two curious enemies on the field.

Well, if isn’t Berkut, one of the new villains added to the game. At this point in time, judging from his map sprite, he appears to be a Paladin–and a boss no less.
