Female Corrin can be summoned in Fire Emblem Echoes, might be getting an amiibo

Posted on April 3, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

Fire Emblem Echoes’ Japanese launch is still a few weeks away, but the game has somehow managed to leak. Fans are already pouring through all of its files and contents to see what secrets Nintendo packed in.

One interesting discovery concerns amiibo functionality. As previously mentioned, Fire Emblem figures from the Smash Bros. line can be used to summon an Illusory Hero of that character during battle. The Corrin amiibo is included even though Nintendo has yet to say when it will be in stores.

When the Corrin amiibo was revealed, only a male version was shown. However, based on today’s Fire Emblem Echoes leak, a female version of the figure could be coming as well. That’s because there are two separate summons for Corrin: male and female.

Here’s a brief video showing female Corrin in Fire Emblem Echoes:


Nintendo has thus far not made any announcements about a female Corrin amiibo. And of course, we still don’t know when Corrin is coming to stores. Hopefully we’ll be receiving some information soon.

  • Corn is a terrible name
    Who else changed her name?

    • Almost no one keeps the default name in FE games.

      • How did everyone know who Robin was when she was announced for smash bros then

        • Evan Gustavson

          He*.
          The official gender is Male for both iirc.
          Corrin is an ok name for a dude.
          But I actually think of Robin as a feminine name.

          • NeptuniasBeard

            There is no “official” gender. Both are in the game. And both names are gender neutral.

            The correct term would be “they”, but really, we’re splitting hairs

        • NeptuniasBeard

          Because they showed the character first and they wear a very identifiable outfit?

          • i changed the hair and the face, too. still seems weird to make the default avatar a character in another game.

          • NeptuniasBeard

            Well if you’re going to go for the widest marketable appeal, the default would be your best bet. No matter what, you’ll have seen the default look for Robin before settling on you own. And it’s also the one they used when promoting the game

        • Because the default is the default. Everyone knows that Red is the trainer from Pokémon gen 1.

  • Alex Pop Tula

    Or maybe she is part of a DLC or it shows which one you saved from Smash

  • JasonBall

    This is getting stupid. Release the darn three amiibo.

    But this femcorrin will please fans. I remember a big stink where people were calling Nintendo sexist.

    • Greg Caldwell

      They aren’t going to release those 3 amiibo until the smash4 port happens; that’s the only reason they are holding onto them

    • Nintendo does has some outdated and frankly, kinda sexist (by “default”) choices at times, but what were those claims for? Because sometimes, people say that without even understanding what they’re talking about. (Which makes legit claims of sexism look bad, sadly.)

      I definitely like the design of female Corrin more than male Corrin though (her hair is so perfect; wish he had long hair with a ponytail), so I’m happy.

      • JasonBall

        People said female Corrin was canon, and having just male was sexist and ignoring fans who go by canon. Which I find ridiculous.

        • Ahhh. I get where they’re coming from though. All too often, companies default to the male character, which means it’s cool we have options, but why is the default always the guy?
          That was worse with Animal Crossing considering the female audience made up a larger percentage of the sales.

          It’s definitely a smaller scale issue, but it can be of value to acknowledge and consider~.

  • JJ

    Give me the frikkin’ Smash Amiibo, first!

  • O.H. X-1990

    Wait wait wait wait wait! …Corrin, on this Fire Emblem Gaiden remake?! …That’s really cliche! Why would they add a character from a new Fire Emblem game to this old Fire Emblem game that is remade, huh?!

    • Bap

      Because you need an amiibo to unlock them.

      • O.H. X-1990

        Make a better explanation, this won’t do.

        • Bap

          I don’t have to because thats how it’s going to work.

          • O.H. X-1990

            Your loss, kid.

          • Bap

            not my problem edgelord.

          • O.H. X-1990

            It is your problem now, childish troll, you lose. Now cry in shame. Ha ha.

          • Bap

            lol

          • O.H. X-1990

            That’s right, keep laughing at your own failure, for you are crying right now, childish troll, it’s about your shame.

          • Kinan

            CRAAAWLING IIIN MY SKIIIIIIN

          • Bap

            LMAO dude keep going.

          • O.H. X-1990

            You keep going first, crybaby troll. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Or maybe, keep crying, you know you love crying in shame. Ha ha ha ha ha! I win.

          • Rikth Humayun (MEGAEONISE)

            Uhh troll? But still Corrin is an illusory hero, basically a amiibo summon who disappears after a turn or something. There is also Marth, Roy, Ike, Robin and Lucina support. Using the Alm or Celica amiibo lets you summon a copy of them and you can put your Alm or Celica’s stats on them. Also the Alm or Celica amiibo gives you access to a brand new dungeon.

          • Bap

            yeeeep. I need you to keep going please.

          • O.H. X-1990

            What’s that? Is that the sound of you crying in shame, again? Good for you, crybaby troll, you deserve your endless crying. Way to go, loser, keep up the good work of being a loser. Ha ha ha! I’m laughing because you’re crying.

          • Bap

            lol, I mean I was hoping you had more, but your just a broken record. Just keep posting.

          • O.H. X-1990

            This coming from a true crybaby troll who’s wasting his time and life not knowing the true reason why there’s Corrin in Fire Emblem Echoes. You may continue to cry in shame, don’t let me stop you. Ha ha ha! I win, by the way.

          • Bap

            Neat. Whats stopping you?

          • O.H. X-1990

            Trying to get me triggered with your idiocy? That won’t work on me, because you know you’ve lost this argument, crybaby troll. Ha ha ha. Keep crying, you know you love it.

          • Bap

            I call someone an edgelord and they prove it. Neat.

          • O.H. X-1990

            You don’t even know what an “edgelord” is, childish troll. In fact, there’s no such thing as an “edgelord”, so your argument is forever invalid. I win again. Now cry again, fill up your salty tears on my cup. Ha ha ha ha ha. Justice is served.

          • Bap

            Pretty sure you do.

          • O.H. X-1990

            I do what? Laugh at your humiliation? Well, of course I do, that’s what you get for being an obvious sad little troll. Ha ha.

          • Bap

            You do :3

          • O.H. X-1990

            Well, of course I do win, and I did, because your little attempt to get me triggered has failed, and so did you. Cry again, evil crybaby troll, justice is served again.

          • Bap

            I’m not even reading anything other than your first couple words. I would say keep wasting your time, but thats all you have.

  • Cool! I just wish they would use an upgraded form of the Yato. Maybe you can save the stats of your unit in Fates, then have those broken stats in Echoes.

    • Dantel

      Doubt it.
      We’re going WAY back into Fire Emblem, so broken stats wouldn’t be a thing at all.

  • Pinkie-Dawn

    This could be related to that new amiibo slot added alongside with Cloud, Male Corrin, and Bayonetta.
