An original Fire Emblem title for Nintendo Switch was announced for a 2018 release, and it will be the franchise’s first mainline appearance on a home console since Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn in 2007. A few new comments from the series’ developers were recently released, and it sounds like they’re bringing something new to entice gamers into playing next year’s Fire Emblem game.
In an interview with French site
Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Director Kenta Nakanishi was asked about the franchise’s return to consoles after several highly successful 3DS outings. In his response, he said the following about Fire Emblem on the Switch:
“With this title designed for home consoles, we should be able to offer a completely different Fire Emblem, breathing life into our characters like never before.”
— Kenta Nakanishi
Hitoshi Yamagami, producer on
Fire Emblem Echoes, also mentioned that the series has had a significant presence on home consoles, which should continue with the Switch game. According to Yamagami, Fire Emblem Echoes had the team feeling “like we were reaching the apex of our work on Nintendo 3DS,” so hopefully the change to far more powerful hardware will allow them to reach even greater heights than their handheld titles.
