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.”
