Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows Of Valentia To Get Official Guide Book Which Reveals New Content Not Available In The Original


Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia releases this month in Japan and, to assist gamers, Nintendo are pairing up with Shogakukan to release a 304 page official guidebook on April 27th, a week after the game’s release. Whilst it is possible that most of the dedicated fans may have already finished the game by then, it is worth noting the Guidebook’s description as it lists a number of un publicized game features and potential game changer. You can see the description below.

The official guidebook for Fire Emblem Echoes: Another Hero-King to be released on 20th April 2017 for the Nintendo 3DS.

In the system section, we explain in detail all the basic mechanics necessary to play the game, such as the alternating two main characters, class growth, flow of battle, dungeon exploration, village and street base conversations etc.

The core section of this book, the tactics section, covers Chapters 1 to 5, as well as the new Chapter 6 added after the ending, and includes detailed battle maps with strategies geared for Normal mode play. Of course, Hard mode tips will be provided. Also included are all the items obtained from base and village events, as well as dungeon maps.

In addition, in the data section, there is complete overage of units, skills, equipment, forging, provisions, medals, renown and so forth.

It’s a comprehensive guidebook that provides full assistance to those journeying through Valentia.

Female Corrin amiibo Could be in the Works After all!


When the Corrin amiibo for Smash Bros. series was first announced, the amiibo shown was the male version, only if today’s new leak is anything to go by, it seems a Male and Female Corrin amiibo are in the works.

In the video above, it is clearly visible that both Male and Female version of Corrin can be summoned as an Illusionary Hero in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, which is something that can only be done, by using Fire Emblem related amiibo from the Smash Bros. line. So unless this video is a well-crafted fake, the only way for the summons of both Corrins could happen, is if an amiibo of both is happening after all.

 

Sadly though, until official confirmation comes from Nintendo themselves, this is of course simple speculation, but if it is real, with the release of Echoes drawing close, some Corrin amiibo news should drop fairly soon and when it does, we’ll be back to write about it!

 

But the video is not the only thing to have leaked as the entire Japanese version of the game has leaked and some players can’t help but leak even more details, so if you wish to avoid spoilers, good luck. It won’t be long until they are everywhere!

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Limited Edition Bundle is Revealed for Europe and North America


On the 19th of May, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is coming to the Nintendo 3DS, but for the diehard Fire Emblem fans who are happy to splurge the cash on their favourite series, today a Limited Edition bundle has been revealed for both North America and Europe.

A Limited Edition bundle that consists of the game, (obviously) an artbook, a double-sided titlesheet, a soundtrack selection CD entitled “Sounds of Echoes,” and metal pixel pin badges of Alm, Celica and Marth. At least that’s what the North American version of the bundle consists of, the European one includes all of the mentioned items, as well as the Alm and Celica amiibo and if you think that’s all the Fire Emblem Echoes related news you’re poorly mistaken.

Thanks to the news article in which news of the bundle comes from, it has been reconfirmed the Corrin amiibo is still on its way, as well as a few other things, including new videos for us to watch, and we’ve got it all right here:

The fate of Valentia is in your hands in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, coming to Nintendo 3DS family systems on May 19th

21st March, 2017 – When civil war threatens to bring destruction to the realm, long-lost childhood friends with secret pasts must gather forces, reunite, and bring peace to the continent when Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia launches on Nintendo 3DS family systems on 19th May. Remade, remastered, and releasing outside of Japan for the first time, this reimagining of Fire Emblem Gaiden provides European players with a brand new Fire Emblem adventure with a revered past.

This game is the latest in the long-running and growing strategy RPG series, and comes hot on the heels of the recently released free-to-start title Fire Emblem Heroes on smart devices. Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia will see players take control of the two separate armies of Alm and Celica as their differing quests attempt to achieve the unified goal of bringing peace to the land of Valentia. Battles in the Fire Emblem series see players take their small force of recruited soldiers against increasingly powerful armies in turn-based battles that require careful tactical planning, as mistakes or failed attacks will see units become exposed and vulnerable to enemy attack.

Should a unit be cut down in the midst of battle in Fire Emblem’s traditional Classic Mode, they’ll either become too injured to ever return to the battlefield, or will be fatally wounded. In Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, players can use Mila’s Turnwheel to rewind the player’s last few turns, giving them a chance to reverse tactical errors and reconsider their next strategic move. Should players not wish defeat to be permanent, they can play through the game in Casual Mode, which allows fallen allies to be revived after each battle, letting players progress through the story more comfortably.

Players will also be able to enjoy expanded story content to propel them further into the intertwining adventures of Alm and Celica, including new recruitable heroes, new villains to defeat, and a new prologue that explores the previously hidden history of Alm and Celica. For the first time in the Fire Emblem series, all character dialogue for main story scenes is fully voiced in English, while beautifully animated cut-scenes from movie animators Studio Khara will allow budding tacticians to soak in the story.

In another first for the Fire Emblem series, Alm and Celica can freely explore caves and dungeons in three dimensions, allowing them to see enemies before battle – players can gain a vital advantage by attacking enemies in these areas, causing them to begin the conflict with reduced health. Inside each dungeon is a Mila’s Statue, which can be used to promote characters and change their class, while some contain Sacred Springs, which can grant heroes with permanent stat increases.

When it launches on 19th May, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia will be available as a solus game and special Limited Edition*, featuring the game, an artbook, metal pixel pin badges of Alm, Celica, and Marth, a reversible title sheet, the “Sounds of Echoes” soundtrack selection CD, and the Alm and Celica amiibo figures. When used, these amiibo will each activate their own exclusive dungeon, allowing heroes to earn items and level up their armies further by defeating bosses. Budding strategists can see the contents of the Limited Edition in the trailer below:

By selecting Mila’s Turnwheel from the menu on the overworld map, players will also be able to activate their Alm and Celica amiibo (sold separately or as part of the Limited Edition) to use in battle. During combat, players can sacrifice a portion of Alm or Celica’s health in order to summon a computer-controlled Illusory Hero, which will act as a temporary ally for a single turn. As Alm and Celica get stronger, their stats can be saved to their respective amiibo, allowing their Phantom Helper to grow in strength alongside them. In addition, amiibo (sold separately) of Marth, Roy, Ike, Robin, Lucina, and even the upcoming Corrin amiibo can be used to summon an Illusory Hero of that character, allowing players to seek assistance from spectral visages. All other currently available amiibo are also compatible, and will summon an additional monster to the battleground to assist players on the battlefield, proving some much needed help in case of a strategic emergency.

The fate of a continent is in your hands when Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia releases across Europe on 19th May for Nintendo 3DS family systems. On the same day, a Limited Edition containing the game, an artbook, metal pixel pin badges of Alm, Celica, and Marth, a double-sided titlesheet, the “Sounds of Echoes” soundtrack selection CD, and Alm and Celica amiibo will be released.
