Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, a remake of Fire Emblem Gaiden, takes on a completely new name. In an interview with The Verge, director Kenta Nakanishi explained the change.

Nakanishi told the site:

“Because it wasn’t released outside of Japan, and gaiden means side story, people would think ‘What is the side story for?’ So we thought we’d come up with a new title.”

Nakanishi also commented on the Fire Emblem game he would remake if he had to choose. His selection? Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade, a Japan-exclusive GBA title. Nakanishi said that Roy’s story “has never been told, so it would be great if we could release a remake of his story.”

New Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2 footage

Posted on 1 week ago by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, Videos | 0 comments | 0 Likes

During a live stream held today, Atlus showcased new footage from Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2 on 3DS. We’ve posted the relevant recording below.

Another piece of significant information has been reported stemming from the April 2017 NPD report. According to Mat Piscatella, an analyst for the company, Mario Kart is the all-time best-selling racing franchise in the U.S.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was the best-selling game in the U.S. last month despite being on the market for just two days. In that short period, over 460,000 physical units sold. With digital sales included, the total exceeds 550,000 units.

The latest episode of Capcom TV was hosted this week. This new episode contained footage of Ultra Street Fighter II and Monster Hunter XX while also showcasing Megami Meguri’s update. View the full recording below.

In a new interview with Polygon, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia director Kenta Nakanishi spoke about the newly released remake.

Nakanishi told the site that Intelligent Systems wanted “to integrate things that we couldn’t do with Fire Emblem Fates on the 3DS platform.” That caused the team to look back on the past. Fire Emblem Gaiden was a game that resonated with Intelligent Systems and Nakanishi in particular since his father – who died when he was a child – had passed the game on to him.

Update: The amiibo 2-pack is now up as well here.


Original: The Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Limited Edition is available to order once more on Amazon. You can nab it here. If you have a Prime account, you’ll save 20 percent.
