In a new interview with USGamer, Nintendo’s Kenta Nakanishi spoke about what the Fire Emblem team would like to improve on in the future.

The first element Nakanishi highlighted are character growth rates. About this feature, he said:

“One of the things we want to improve on in the future is the growth rate of the characters. We changed the growth rate by two times or three times from the original; but we’ve heard feedback that it wasn’t enough, so that’s something we will keep in mind for the future.”

Nakanishi also pointed to expanding the number of class promotions:

“In Fire Emblem Echoes the characters can become many different characters from villager to mercenary to archer, and we thought this was what we could do at the most. But perhaps there’s more room to consider more options in the future.”

We should also note that Nakanishi was asked about the possibility of bringing back Mila’s Turnwheel, which was just introduced in Fire Emblem Echoes. Nakanishi said the following in response:

“We introduced Mila’s Turnwheel because we wanted to make the simulation part interesting. In a lot of the past titles there have been moments where you would get stuck or make mistakes and have to reset, but Mila’s Turnwheel definitely alleviates that frustration, and I think it works well. But as for Mila’s Turnwheel specifically, I think it would determine the theme of the game we would work on.”
