^ So now you are fine with scrapping the one of the only franchises that Nintendo has that's valuable to the hardcore audience?

Fine, be that way. I mean after all, no matter what games Nintendo makes, they will always get the image of being a friendly like company.

I understand that nothing has been shown now. But at the same time, I wouldn't hope microtransactions will be out because they WILL put them and do it in such a way that the game is a pay to win instead of a free to play. I don't want to be down here and I'm sort of trolling I get that, but I just see the mobile gaming bleak and riskier than dedicated gaming, that's that.

And seeing as how you guys have convinced me that TRPGs are very niche and only appeal to a small audience, will putting this on a phone have that big of an impact?

I know you're joking, but that's not funny.

@TheLastLugia

Needless overthinking and over-worrying about a game franchise.

I don't think it's SRPGs that are niche. Just Fire Emblem. But things can change (moreso then they have.)

Well then I suppose that panic and overreacting is the norm for this place nowadays. Preemptive overreacting is a new one though.

For me as a huge Fire Emblem fan, I think the game has every chance of being a success, and I'm certainly interested to see how the game shapes up. Of course it depends on what one deems 'successful' to be, considering that everything in the videogame industry these days has to be the next CoD, Minecraft or Candy Crush or it is automatically an abject failure. For people with common sense however, I think that a Fire Emblem mobile game could work, it has the foundations that could adapt to this new platform, microtransactions aplenty and the core gameplay would be easy to work around pure touch controls.

I think if Fire Emblem's resurgence as of late is any indication, there are more people out there who can get enjoyment out of the series, it's just been too 'niche' in what it was pre Awakening to appeal to a mass audience. If the game is good, I don't see it being ignored. And the game should be good, Fire Emblem games usually are, and DeNA should help in its transition to mobile. Do that, and I think it will work.

@DarthNocturnal: um.....if you're talking about FE being the ONLY SRPG that's nice, your kinda wrong in that regard.

It outsold Devil Survivor for the DS version of Shadow Dragon. Same goes for the Final Fantasy Tactics as well. The only thing that its rivaled is Sakura Wars and probably Valkyria Chronicles but other than that, compared to the other IPs, FE alone isn't niche.

Its just the genre alone that's niche.

With everything that could possibly go wrong with putting Fire Emblem on Mobile, I think they should just cancel the series right now and close Intelligent Systems, kinda like what Microsoft did with Lionhead. Who needs to fund such a risky franchise anyway. Nintendo should just focus on making Mario because that is the only thing worth making. So lets Cancel Fire Emblem all together and only let Nintendo make Mario games, isn't that what we all want anyway?

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.

Ok, let's all be on the side of optimism here and look at what needs to be done here for the mobile game.

For me, I would like this game to be region free because if at all the game is good, then of course I'll gladly want to try it out.

I want another different artstyle for this game. I mean, I don't mind if Kozaki-San returns as the art here....but to help make the game new, I'd like to see a new artstyle. Maybe an artstyle from Akira Toriyama?

Then I want the game to bring back Myrmidons as the way its done in Birthright is just lame and awkward as such.

Lastly, I want the game done in such a way that its not pay to win like Clash Royale.

-And again with the "reading things that weren't actually said".

-You're ignoring Western games. That's rather important. I'd consider SRPGs a "normal" genre. A few games being niche in certain markets =/= niche genre.

Actually, is any genre truly, universally niche? You could find both popular and niche games in every genre (and everything in between).

Artwark has this magic 2 million sales figure in his head and that if a game doesn't achieve that goal it's doomed.

No no, it is doomed because of all the oppressive micro transactions he would have implemented if he was in charge. Oh, and square enix effed up final fantasy tactics on mobile, so Nintendo WILL do the same.

With that said, it is still their first game on mobile, it might be a bit hit and miss in how they implement the business model.

I don't see fire emblem as a big budget game. It should be relatively risk-free to put on mobile. And I agree with Socar on one thing, it should be region free. Nintendo need to understand that they are in a global market.

I'd be fine with this current FE being on iOS. Maybe then they can make more serious FE's for home consoles.
Yeah. I'm one of those people. =_=

Um....you guys do know that about five posts ago, I said I'm willing to be optimistic for the game right? And now we're ranting sarcastically?

Anyways, I can only get my hands on the game if its region free. You know.....I think its the mobile market that suffers from region locking because for dedicated gaming, you can always import a copy and play it.

Here in mobile.......what the hell are you suppose to do if the game's region locked?

I think Nintendo are deliberately region locking their games to prevent Artwark from playing them.

@jump: They probably region lock because evil youtube is stealing all of their money and they can't risk releasing the game anywhere else. Region locking ensures that Nintendo sells enough copies in each area so they don't have to cancel the series.

You have the right to disagree with me and the ability to consider anything valid that I say; Please exercise both.

If the game is F2P, one could always sideload.... well, on Android. But if the online services are blocked, then things only get more complicated.

@jump: Atleast your name is now easier to type.

@DefHalan: right.......do all that when Nintendo can easily consider that the mobile gaming is a global thing.

@SomeBitTripFan: I know you want to annoy me....but please make some sense when posting stuff. You realize its simple to post videos on youtube right?
