Fire Emblem Echoes director Kenta Nakanishi has shared some details about the highly-awaited strategy game that is coming to the Nintendo Switch next month. The new title will boast some completely different changes and will "breathe life into characters."
Fire Emblem For Nintendo Switch Will Be Completely New
Nintendo's hybrid console will be getting more iconic franchises with one of them being its familiar strategy title. While the developer has yet to share the finer details about this project, it will be releasing next year. Luckily, MyNintendoNews shares a recent interview with Nakanishi who shared a bit more information about the upcoming game.
He claimed that the game is being designed for home consoles, so it will play differently from its three predecessors on the 3DS. For this reason, he claimed that the team will be able to "breathe life into their character like never before." Unfortunately, he did not go into further detail about what he meant by his statement.
New Collaboration Games On The Way?
Incidentally, Nintendo Enthusiast shares that producer Hitoshi Yamagami also teased some future collaboration with the game. Fittingly enough, he has worked on Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE which was a mash-up of Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei. He stated that fans will be able to play yet another collaboration title this autumn: Fire Emblem Warriors.
Judging by all the recent mashups, there might be a chance that the series could be getting more collaborations in the near future. Until then, fans can enjoy the upcoming Warriors game that takes inspiration from the iconic Dynasty Warriors franchise.
The upcoming mainline game, on the other hand, still has no official release date nor gameplay videos or teasers. It is still unsure if this game will follow the updated mechanics of Echoes which featured dungeon exploration while removing the weapon triangle. Fire Emblem for the Nintendo Switch will be launching sometime 2018.
