If this means they aren't recycling hardly any content, then that is very reassuring. I'm hoping the effects of choices transfers well throughout the game, not just at the split point. I'm not expecting Bioware/CD Projekt Red choices and consequences, but they should emulate that and how it affects the ending. The Fire Emblem Awakening ending synopsis for all characters was nice until you got up to Robin and his/her spouse and then it turned into bleh.

Sacred Stones had dual paths. One for Ephraim and one for Erika. You could find all of the same characters, just through different circumstances. I am hoping this isn't what they have in mind for the extra campaigns.

I don't have it on me right now, but there is a chart that shows that some characters are in both campaigns and some are exclusive. From the chart, it appears that there is a lot of campaign exclusive characters.

but then when they reunite I believe the character you didn't go with has his/her exclusive characters in tow.

Not sure how final this is. Only includes Hoshido and Nohr games. Disclaimer: Not my image.


I'm actually annoyed by how similar the artwork is and wish they got someone new to do it.

Wait, so the rainbow colored circles mean a homosexual relationship results in a child, right? Otherwise, the MC can have a relationship with any member of the same sex?

I read on ANN that there is only one person you can have a same sex relation with on each side. So no. Like I said, I'm not sure how final this is, but it looks to be more like Mass Effect's "some are willing to be gay, but not all." I'm pretty sure child adoption applies in more then just same sex relations too because some characters have barren wombs.

Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but the translation of the A+ scenes seems to indicate the characters love your avatar regardless of their gender, and you have the option to requite the love or not regardless.

Think Cordelia's Chrom obsession in Awakening, except directed at your character and with the option to return the love.

Now I'm seeing stuff that says there can be a whole lot of yuri. So I have no idea anymore.

And supposedly (consider it speculation at this point) Some of the characters are reincarnations of the ones from Awakening because Fire Emblem magic. White haired Tharja is literally Tharja reincarnated and the avatar in Fates is literally the avatar reincarnated from Awakening from what I'm hearing. Some characters children went through the Outer Realms and such and blah blah here they are. Supposedly explained in S-Rank conversations.

Edit: I think the avatar only had one gay option in each sides while other characters have more overall.

Japanese trailer for the third story, The Invisible Kingdom
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1fUHrSXe4A

Given how grounded the first few trailers of Fire Emblem Fates were, I forgot how bizarre the series can get with abyssal vortexes and apocalyptic dragons.

Oh my God, an actually interesting looking trailer because it is interesting, not because its showing you who you can plan to marry ahead of time!

This is the dumbest **** I've ever heard and a clear sign they're piggybacking off of Awakening's success (if true).

-more anime-ish characters
-non-existent noob filter skill gate
-Weapon condition system being tossed out the window (Falchion)
-My Castle translates into outer realm phantoms.
-Waifu crap
-More waifu crap
-Even more waifu
-This is basically an anime dating sim with some gameplay

The characters who are being referenced won the popularity contests in Awakening. So the most popular waifus are being transferred.

This game is looking like a fucking joke of the FE series. At least the third DLC looks interesting.

I mean, those were the obvious signs. If Awakening was the best-selling FE, they were bound to put in gameplay modifications that allowed more idiots to play it. I am counting myself as one of those idiots, as Awakening was the first FE game I have ever beaten, but that doesn't mean I haven't respected and played previous entries.

But straight up referencing "beloved" characters just because of their success in the previous title (the DLC of Awakening at least pulled from across the mythos, these characters are just straight up reincarnations from the LAST GAME)? That's just lazy and stupid. The worse aspect is that this game is selling even better than Awakening which means that game as a "reboot" to the series, including conventions and stupid characters, is a good idea of how future Fire Emblem titles will play out.

The reusing of characters isn't exactly new, every fire emblem game except radiant dawn has had a pair of cavaliers, one red one green, one bold one reserved. Or how about a trio of pegasus sisters that share a bond so strong they can perform a unique chain attack, every game except awakening. It's not lazy, it's traditional AND lazy.

Always?  As in, once so far with another game in the near future going to have DLC?  Fire Emblem is a long-running series, and DLC is a (relatively) new concept for it.

Anyway, pretty grumpy tonight.


Fire Emblem Fates Special Edition pre-orders finally went live on amazon.ca tonight. First time in Canada - but with no advance notice of when it would happen. Available stock sold out in under 30 minutes. 


Glad Nintendo is bringing out this premium edition, but disappointed with how restrictive availability seems to be.  Best Buy and EB Games will supposedly go live tomorrow. Any Canadians interested in the game should keep their eyes open, and hopefully not have to work or go to school or basically have any normal "real world" responsibilities if interested in securing a copy.


How ridiculous is that?  Maybe this is a scalper thing and Nintendo isn't actually at fault. Doesn't make it any less disappointing though.

Sorry to hear about your troubles securing a copy.


I would follow the Fire Emblem reddit page as they are rapidly fast in posting when these go live and have a number of details on when they could go live at different retailers. They helped me secure both my Best Buy preorder and my Amazon one (dropped my BB one after securing on Amazon). So I would check with them. I read that you might be able to secure them in the store as well if they are out online. Maybe find a way to get a long break at work? It flickered numerous times in the States so keep you hope up and keep checking daily.


I'm so excited about this game I am replaying a lot of older FE games. Finished Path of Radiance last month and am currently playing Radiant Dawn, Awakening (playing the marry-Lucina-plot for the first time), and Sacred Stones. I bought a translated copy of FE 6 and plan to play 7 and 6 (story order) over the winter.


Needless to say, Fire Emblem fever has bit me hard.

~ejammer~
Pre-orders go live tomorrow @ 1PM for EBGames in Canada. Good luck!
