Earlier this week, we made note of an interview Nintendo Dream conducted this summer with the developers of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. In the same interview, Nintendo and Intelligent Systems talked about the “Battle of Revolution” April Fools’ Day joke that took place earlier this year.

It was kind of surprising to see Nintendo go all out with fabricating a game like that. A site was set up, and various images and details were created just for the joke. Basically, Battle of Revolution was imagined as a NES-style game set in the late Edo period of Japan.

Nintendo’s Hitoshi Yamagami and Kenta Nakanishi as well as Intelligent Systems’ Toshiyuki Kusakihara and Masahiro Higuchi discussed Battle of Revolution and how it came to be. It’s an interesting read, with the excerpt posted below. You can also read the full interview on Kantopia.

The July 2017 issue of Nintendo Dream had a massive interview about Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. Producer Hitoshi Yamagami (Nintendo), director Kenta Nakanishi (Nintendo), director Toshiyuki Kusakihara (Intelligent Systems), and producer Masahiro Higuchi (Intelligent Systems) participated in the discussion.

Among the topics discussed were the use of realistic proportions (which will be carried over into the upcoming Switch title), why Alm is left-handed, and a whole lot more. We’ve picked out some of the notable excerpts below. You can read the full interview on Kantopia.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia received new DLC last week in the form of Cipher Legends. Two pieces of content were released that offer characters from the Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher) trading card game in Japan. You can watch some footage from the DLC below.

Nintendo have released a trailer for the latest piece of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia DLC. Launching today, the “Rise of the Deliverance” pack serves as a prequel of sorts to the main game and details how the Deliverance got started.

Nintendo has released a trailer for another part of the Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia downloadable content. This time, it’s for the “Lost Altars” DLC pack. This pack actually contains ten separate pieces of DLC, which can also be bought individually. They each allow one class who has reached what is normally the final stage of their class to promote once more. For example, Barons can promote into Spartans and Dread Fighters can promote into Yakshas.
