In case you missed it, the last seven days was #FireEmblemWeek here on Miketendo64 and what a week it turned out to be! Did everything go to plan like it was supposed to? No it didn’t, but then we did admit back when we announced #FireEmblemWeek that there wasn’t really much of a plan in the first place. Sure we had some ideas as to what kind of content we wanted to produce, but the majority of the time we just played it by ear and it was pretty great! We produced all kinds of Fire Emblem content, and still had the time to cover all of the very best Nintendo news there was!


So just what kind of Fire Emblem content did we provide? Allow us to walk you through it:


Monday (30/01/17):

  • (Opinion)’s Most Wanted – Fire Emblem and Advance Wars Miniatures by Kuribi: #FireEmblemWeek may have been a Miketendo64 brainchild, but it is in no way limited to just our site, as our fellow site Nintendo Figures has also jumped aboard the #FireEmblemWeek train. In a fantastic article, NF/Kuribo expresses his desires for Fire Emblem and Advance Wars miniatures and also argues some good points. For the Miketendo share, click here, or click here to be taken to the Nintendo Figures site and see the article in full.




  • (Editorial) Mike Scorpio on Fire Emblem (#FireEmblemWeek) by Mike Scorpio: Mike isn’t much of a Fire Emblem fan, not because he dislikes it, but because he has very little experience with the series, but he hasn’t let that get in the way of him contributing to #FireEmblemWeek, so he wrote an editorial on what he thinks of the series.


  • (News) Fire Emblem Heroes will Release at 7 am JST on February the 2nd by Jacktendo92: In the only piece of Fire Emblem Heroes news coverage posted on Monday, we were one of the first sites, if not the first site to cover the news that Fire Emblem Heroes is planned to go live at 7 a.m. JST in Japan on 02/02/17. (Why do we say the first? Because I was on reddit when the photo that gave this information, was posted and penned my article immediately, beating the likes of Nintendo Everything and GoNintendo)

  • (Review) Fire Emblem Fates (3DS) Review Revisit by Mr. Panda: Whilst it wasn’t new Fire Emblem related content, written exclusively for #FireEmblemWeek, our very own Mr. Panda did write an exceptional Fire Emblem Fates review that he has chosen to share directly from his blog and old news or not, it really is one of the best reviews for Fates, out there. Especially when it covers Birthright, Conquest and Revelation!


Thursday (02/02/17):

  • (Feature) Fire Emblem & Smash Bros Wii U (Gameplay Videos) by Mike Scorpio: Whilst not new to the site, Mike Scorpio kicked off Day 4 of #FireEmblemWeek by sharing a number of Fire Emblem related videos we made for our YouTube channel.









  • (Footage) Fire Emblem Heroes Gameplay (Video) by Mike Scorpio: With Fire Emblem Heroes released in Europe and Japan, with fans in the US left waiting, Mike went hands on with the game and did a little video of his own. Yes the audio crapped out a little but it happens and you know what, it’s our own content and that’s what matters most this #FireEmblemWeek.




Friday (03/02/17):



  • (Review) Fire Emblem Heroes: A Nintendo Mobile Review by Mike Scorpio: After enough hours of hands on experience, Mike Scorpio chose to take it upon himself to handle the official Miketendo64 review of Fire Emblem Heroes and since he did a great job of it, instead of revealing how he scored it, you’re just gonna have to click on the link below and find out for yourself:





  • (News) Festive Discoveries with Fire Emblem Heroes by Jacktendo92: Ever wondered what a festive Tharja and male Robin would look like in Fire Emblem Heroes? Well wonder no more because imagery of a festive Robin and Tharja have been discovered via datamining of Heroes’ files and we took it upon ourselves to share the photos!

Sunday (05/02/17):


As far as Fire Emblem news and coverage goes, yeah we dropped the ball on the weekend. But then there was no real news shared during those two days and I made the mistake of taking a break and playing Heroes, which lead to me playing it for 5 hours straight on the Saturday and invested another 3 on Sunday. But you know what, this has been a fantastic week. Due to being hacked the week before, we lost a lot of followers, but #FireEmblemWeek saw our numbers grow more so than what they were in the first place and we produced a ton more content then expected, so personally speaking, I’m chalking #FireEmblemWeek up as a success. A success that got more views and attention than #ZeldaWeek.


So since this last week was a success, you can of course expect to see another Theme Week sometime in the future, but we promise you won’t have to wait for it as long as you had to wait for this #FireEmblemWeek. In fact we’ll be kicking off another Theme Week this month in fact because here at Miketendo64, we will of course be hosting #SwitchWeek. A week that begins on the 27th of February, ends on the 5th of March and is dedicated to all things Nintendo Switch. After #SwitchWeek, the only theme we are committed to doing is a #SplatoonWeek later on this year, (we’ll be arranging it to take place around the week Splatoon2 releases,) but if you have a particular game series you would like to see us dedicate a whole week to, let us know. After all, it if sounds good to us, you could expect to see it put into effect sometime in the next couple of months. So please have your say, we are listening.



But since #FireEmblemWeek is over, Miketendo64 will go back to our regular way of running things. Providing news coverage, making changes to our site, producing reviews, conducting Interviews and throwing out a feature whenever we can, whilst continuing The Miketendo Strip. So more of the same of what you saw this week, but just less focus on Fire Emblem.


Until next time, keep on gaming!
