Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Announced for Nintendo 3DS

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia has been announced for the Nintendo 3DS. During this evening’s Nintendo Direct, Echoes was revealed to eager fans and is based on gameplay from the second game in the series. As a re-imagining of the NES classic Fire Emblem Gaiden, it will feature free-roaming play and dungeons crawling with enemies, focusing on the story of two main protagonists; Alm and Celica.

Echoes: Shadows of Valentia will launch on the Nintendo 3DS on May 19 for the US. Brand new amiibo figures in the forms of Alm and Celica will also be released alongside the game’s launch.


  1. This is for the dear fans who wished more with the classics than just Marth’s face slapped on everything…. Wish the split sides can get along more.

  2. Omega King Kalas Ridley X3 (Greatness Awaits at Nintendo Switch & Sony PlayStation 4! Come join us in the Light of Darkness!!) says:

    Let’s hope these Fire Emblem amiibo aren’t as hard to find as their Smash counterparts. And if they do, let’s hope they don’t take 2 years to fucking ship more! I only just recently got Lucina, for crying out loud!

  3. From somebody who played the original on the nes, you guys are in for a real treat the game is a timeless masterpiece.
    for strategy fans you can’t miss this.

  4. Why Gaiden? Oh well, the chances to the original better be good since it was my least favorite of the originals.

    Hell, this could eventually lead into remakes of the Jugdral Saga and that I would love to see.
