Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Announced for 3DS – May 2017 Release & Amiibo’s Coming



Nintendo announced that a new Fire Emblem game is coming out for the Nintendo 3DS in 2017 and it’s called FE Echos: Shadows of Valentia. This is a remake of a game in the franchises exclusively released in Japan running on the same engine that Awakening and Fates ran on.

In 1992, the second game in the Fire Emblem series, Fire Emblem Gaiden, launched exclusively in Japan. Now, for the first time, fans outside of Japan will get a taste of this classic game on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is inspired by the 1992 original, reimagined on a grander scale.

Every aspect of the Fire Emblem Gaiden game’s presentation has been updated, along with the game being fully voiced. Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia recreates classic Fire Emblem gameplay with a modern twist, mixing in exploration of dungeons crawling with enemies. Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia will launch on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems May 19. Characters from the game, Alm and Celica, will be available as amiibo figures in a two-pack, also on May 19.
