  • News We Almost Got A Pokémon And Fire Emblem Crossover Game

    Pokémon Conquest and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE got made instead

    Pokémon is a real money-maker for all concerned right now, but the franchise has a strong commercial history behind it, and that has led to some interesting spin-off titles - Pokémon Conquest being one notable example. However, had that particular release not happened we could well...

    Review Fire Emblem Fates

    Choose your destiny

    Fire Emblem Fates launches this week in Europe. To mark this event, we're republishing our review of the North American version of the game, which originally went live on the site back in February. Intelligent Systems got itself into a weird predicament after the stellar success of Fire Emblem Awakening a few years ago. Fire...

  • News Genei Ibun Roku #FE Art Book Releases on 26th February in Japan

    A Fire Emblem art book hat trick

    It seems that this is the year for Fire Emblem art books, as yet another one was just recently revealed. A few months ago, we caught wind of their being a 25th anniversary book on the way, and shortly after, there was news of a book that would focus on just Fire Emblem: Awakening. Now, we have the book for

    Review Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones

    Worth fighting for

    While Fire Emblem is a franchise with a long history in Japan, its track record in the West is far more condensed; in fact Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones on Game Boy Advance was only the second series entry to arrive in the West. The first Western arrival is also available on the Wii U eShop, meaning that there's a useful...



  • News The New Fire Emblem For 3DS May Be Arriving Sooner Than Expected

    Update: Nintendo Australia issues an update dropping '2015' window

    Update: It appears Nintendo Australia made an error with the listed 3DS release dates and has now sent out an updated version of the newsletter. The 3DS section now reads, "Games coming for Nintendo 3DS" rather than the existing header which indicated a 2015 launch for all titles...

  • News A New Fire Emblem Game Is Marching Towards The 3DS

    From the same team behind Fire Emblem: Awakening

    During today's Nintendo Direct it was confirmed that the 3DS family of systems is getting a new entry in the beloved Fire Emblem series, created by the same core team at Intelligent Systems which brought us the sublime Fire Emblem: Awakening. An entirely new story is on offer, but this time around...

    Review Fire Emblem

    So much to love Lyndis game

    Before Fire Emblem: Awakening started the Year of Luigi off with a bang, there was a great deal of concern at Nintendo regarding its future viability as a franchise. Sales were at an all-time low, and series producer Hitoshi Yamagami was given an ultimatum: at least 250,000 copies of the latest entry needed to be sold in...


  • News Final Shots of Lucina Figma Make the Cut

    Currently slated for an April 2015 release

    Last month we had a first look at Good Smile Company's model of Lucina from its figma line. The company has posted further shots of the popular Fire Emblem: Awakening character, showing off more of the figure's versatility. According to Good Smile Company's page, the Lucina figma is designed

  • Rumour Has Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem Been Cancelled?

    Online rumblings seem to suggest so, but have your pinch of salt ready

    Remember Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem? The Wii U crossover was announced back in January 2013 to great fanfare from followers of both franchises, but since then information on the title has been scarce. At E3 this year Nintendo producer Hitoshi Yamagami confirmed that the...









  • Video Nintendo UK Unleashes a Series of Fire Emblem: Awakening Tasters

    It's getting closer, Europe

    Although lucky gamers in North America have now been enjoying Fire Emblem: Awakening on 3DS since the start of February — Japanese gamers have been playing since last year — those of us in Europe are still waiting. It arrives in the region on 19th April, which still seems like a fair old wait considering just how much...


  • News Fire Emblem: Awakening Cut Down By Shipping Delay

    That eShop version is looking very attractive right now

    Fire Emblem: Awakening recently launched in North America, and if you've already consulted our review, you'll be aware that it really is a game that all 3DS owners should own. Sadly, it would appear that a manufacturer shipping delay is preventing many people from actually acquiring the game...

  • Feature Fire Emblem's Western Adventure

    From humble Japanese strategy RPG to important Western franchise

    The long arduous wait for Fire Emblem: Awakening is almost over. North Americans will be getting hold of it on 4th February while Europeans, whose patience must be more enduring, will have it in April. Naturally, Japan has had the title for over a year now. Fire Emblem is a tactical...

  • News Fire Emblem: Awakening Was Almost Set On Mars

    Nintendo's President conducts an eye-opening Iwata Asks

    With Fire Emblem: Awakening emerging on North American shores this week, it seemed only fitting that Nintendo President Satoru Iwata was joined by the team behind the game in the latest instalment of Iwata Asks. Usually Iwata-san interviews three or four members of the development team, but...

    Review Fire Emblem: Awakening

    I love the smell of Elfire in the morning

    A hint of trepidation arises whenever the "Powers That Be" decide that "Your Cool Thing" needs a bigger audience, primarily because "What They Like" and "Why You Like It" don't always mesh. Take Fire Emblem, possibly the most hardcore of Nintendo's franchises — not "hardcore" in the nonsense term of it...

  • Rumour Fire Emblem: Awakening Bundle Coming To North America

    Comes with a glorious special edition 3DS

    Yesterday we reported that a demo for the highly anticipated strategic RPG Fire Emblem: Awakening will be made available to download from the North American 3DS eShop on 17th January. The game itself will launch on 4th February and will be available in both physical and downloadable forms. According to var

    Review Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones

    Once more, to arms!

    For such a long-running series, it's hard to believe Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones was only the second game to leave Japan after GBA predecessor Fire Emblem. Since then the series has had a far bigger presence in the West, a fact underlined by Sacred Stones' status as a 3DS Ambassador title. If Sacred Stones is your first Fire...

    Review Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn


    Fire Emblem is a renowned turn-based tactics series that can be most likened to a combination of Risk and Chess. Following in the wake of the GameCube's Path of Radiance, Radiant Dawn sees the story of Tellius develop from several perspectives. As is typical in the series, the world is gearing up for battle: the Laguz (Beastmen) and Beorc...

    Review Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon

    What this remake lacks in innovation it more than makes up for in polish

    Beyond a shadow of a doubt, the Nintendo DS is the best current generation system to look to when it comes to role-playing games. With titles like Final Fantasy IV, Dragon Quest V, The World Ends With You and Children of Mana, this portable gaming wonder plays host to some of...

    Dark days are rising and mercenary Ike...

    Not long ago Fire Emblem was one of those cool looking Japanese games that we never got the chance to play over here. Thankfully in the past few years gamers in the west have been graced with that latest 3 (the 7th 8th and 9th instalments), 2 for the GBA and one on the GC. The one featured in this review is...
