Nintendo’s final announcement from yesterday’s Fire Emblem Direct presentation may have been the shortest… but it was a doozy. The consolemaker has announced plans to release a new “main series” Fire Emblem game for the Nintendo Switch in 2018.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE was released for the Wii U last year, but it’s actually been a decade since a “main series” Fire Emblem game made its debut on one of Nintendo’s home consoles. That was the year Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn was released for the original Wii.
Nintendo will likely have a lot more to say about Fire Emblem 2018 after the release of Fire Emblem Warriors this Fall. Until then, let’s all look forward to the Switch’s launch on March 3.
