Three new Fire Emblem If screenshots have been discovered on the game’s Japanese 3DS eShop page. In the first two images, we see the Avatar and Kazahana teaming up to defeat a Nohrian Dark Mage. The third has an Inigo lookalike teaming up with what seems to be a female Cavalier in order to tackle a Ninja.

The official Japanese Fire Emblem if website was recently updated after the Nintendo Direct last Sunday. You can find an English translation of the “System” page over on Kantopia . It’s mostly general information about the game that doesn’t offer many new infos to Fire Emblem veterans and those who have been keeping up to date with Fire Emblem if news, however there are two interesting new tidbits: Phoenix Mode, which revives fallen character each turn, can only be selected on Normal difficulty.

There’s also new info about Attack Stance and Guard Stance, this game’s evolution of Fire Emblem Awakening’s Pair Up system. In Fire Emblem if, Attack Stance will also be available to enemy units, however if your units are using Guard Stance, the enemy’s Attack Stance is negated.
