Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

Publisher: Nintendo

As an avid Fire Emblem fan, I have a lot of respect for how far the series has come, especially considering that Awakening was supposed to be the final entry. It’s clear that the new direction for these games clicked very well with western players, breathing new life into a tired chain of tactical RPGs. If essentially “waifu-ing” Fire Emblem up and making the games overall easier to play meant I could still get my Fire Emblem fix every other year, then so be it. However, with Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentina, the developers decided to draw the series back to its roots by remaking the Japan-exclusive Famicom game Fire Emblem Gaiden.

The latest live stream for the Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher) trading card game was held today. Arguably the biggest piece of news was the announcement of series 11. The Sacred Stones will finally be featured in addition to Fire Emblem Warriors. More cards from Shadows of Valentia will be included, too.

Also during the live stream, fans were treated to a sneak peek of sorts for the Fire Emblem 0 collaboration DLC in Shadows of Valentia. In-game models for Shade, Emma, Yuzu, and Yuzu were shown.

Kirie from Serenes Forest captured a ton of different images from the live stream, posted below. Along with what we already mentioned, there was talk and cards shown for series 10 and more.
