Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia can now be pre-loaded from the Japanese 3DS eShop. Because of that, we’re able to find out how much space the game takes up. You’ll need 12,877 blocks, or 1.57GB.

Nintendo just uploaded a new, 7-minute trailer for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. The Japanese video is posted below.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia makes use of amiibo in various ways. When scanning Fire Emblem figures from the Smash Bros. line, an Illusory Hero of that character will be summoned in battle, allowing players to seek assistance from spectral visages.

Over on its Twitter account, Nintendo UK gave a first look at Robin and Roy in action. Players will be able to use these figures and most of the rest at launch, but Corrin still hasn’t been released.


8-4 is teaming up with Nintendo once again. This time around, the two companies are collaborating on the localization of Fire Emblem Echoes.

John Ricciardi from 8-4 told one fan on Twitter recently:

8-4 last worked on Fire Emblem for Fire Emblem Awakening’s western release. Prior to that, the team also handled Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon on DS.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.


Update: Bumped to the top. We have new screenshots as well that have been added to the gallery.

Original: We have some high-quality art of some of the characters you’ll encounter in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. Check out the full set below.

On May 19th Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia will be available worldwide, but for Australia the day will be the 20th of May and they will have their own special Limited Edition as well.

This Fire Emblem Echoes Limited Edition is actually closer to the American release, since there won’t be any amiibo. The Australian release will feature the game, an artbook, the same metal pixel pin badges of Alm, Celica, and Marth, a reversible title sheet and the “Sounds of Echoes” soundratck selection CD.

The official Nintendo Australia site has detailed that the Limited Edition will be sold exclusively via EB Games Australia and New Zealand for SRP AU$99.95


As is the case in North America, Nintendo is planning a Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Limited Edition for its European audience. A video showing its contents can be found below.

The Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Limited Edition is mostly the same in North America and Europe. Both versions have a copy of the game, artbook, Sound Selection CD, Pin Set, and reversible cover sheet. In Europe though, the two new amiibo are included.

Nintendo released a new trailer for Fire Emblem Echoes focusing on the game’s two protagonists, Alm and Celica. Have a look below.

Update 4: Now live on Amazon Canada (thanks Ynini).

Update 3: Not live yet, but Amazon has a placeholder here.

Update 2: Now live on GameStop and available to pre-order here.

Update: A very similar Limited Edition has now been announced for Europe – details here.

Original: Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is receiving a Limited Edition Bundle in North America, Nintendo has announced. Along with a copy of the game, it includes a hardcover Valentia Artbook, Sound Selection CD, Pin Set depicting characters Alm, Celica and Marth, and and a reversible cover sheet that looks like the packaging for the original Famicom game this new one is based on.

The Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Limited Edition bundle will be sold at select retailers for $59.99. It will be available on May 19.

Nintendo shared the following overview for Fire Emblem Echoes today, which also contains official English details about amiibo support:
