Continuing its difficult-to-perceive motives, Nintendo may have been hiding details regarding a promising title that has reportedly been ‘finished for over a year’. A reliable Nintendo informant has given out a list of details regarding the mysterious Fire Emblem project which has only hyped fans. Interestingly, the next game in the franchise is already slated to release this month.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes has a release date of June 24 and fans are already very excited to receive the game.

Everything we possibly know about the new Fire Emblem game

With the Nintendo Direct possibly happening at the end of this month, we cannot help but anticipate a teaser to the rumored FE game. After all, it’s supposedly ready for a year now! However, since we are about to see a Warriors spinoff, the theory is still questionable.

According to Emily Rogers, the mysterious FE project will not be a remake and will feature a brand-new story. The reliable Nintendo informant also mentions an interesting collaboration behind the project. Surprisingly, Intelligent Systems, Koei Tecmo, and Gust have come together to create the new Fire Emblem game.

Roger revealed the state of graphics and visuals, commending Gust on their work. She also adds some interesting details regarding the gameplay mechanics that we can expect. Turns out, players will summon beloved characters from the franchise to support their squad. The main protagonist will feature red and blue hair and his mother will be a dragon.

Considering all things said, Nintendo’s motive is strange. Keeping a completed game mysterious for one entire year isn’t very suggestive. Moreover, we will receive a Fire Emblem Warriors game next week. Is Nintendo planning to reveal the mainline FE title in the upcoming Direct? Again, it’s pretty vague to understand.

When is the next Nintendo Direct?

The latest update on the June Nintendo Direct suggests that the event is scheduled for June 29. This time, it’s Alanah Pearce making the revelation. “It’s not technically a leak because Nintendo didn’t tell me, which is how I make that call. But I’m not leaking anything in it, which is sh*tty.” the former IGN reporter and present writer for God of War Ragnarok proclaims.
