VIDEO: Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia – Protectors of Zophia Trailer

The next installment in the Fire Emblem series is on its way! Well, technically it’s an old game in the series, originally coming out back in the early ’90s as Fire Emblem Gaiden for the Famicom. But, it’s new to us! Even if you somehow managed to previously play the game, this new version adds in animated cutscenes, voices, improved visuals, and enhanced gameplay mechanics. One of the things that sets this one apart from others in the franchise is that you can actually visit towns and explore caves. This gives it more of a traditional RPG vibe, but it has the same tactical combat we all enjoy.

 

 

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is coming to the Nintendo 3DS on May 19. For more information, videos, and screens be sure to swing by our preview.
