Fire Emblem DS goes online in August

fireeds.jpgI enjoyed Fire Emblem on the Wii, but the series feels at home on a handheld. Yes, I know Fire Emblem started out on the Famicom. However, the mission style altercations suit half an hour lunch breaks. Actually, Fire Emblem: Shin Ankoku Ryuu to Hikari no Ken (Fire Emblem: New Dark Dragon and the Sword of Light) is a Famicom game. The first Fire Emblem game for the Nintendo DS is a remake of the first game in the series. DS owners get to experience it with new graphics and some unknown Nintendo Wi-Fi function on August 7.


Nintendo of America has not announced Fire Emblem (insert localized subtitle here) anywhere else, but if ASH: Archaic Sealed Heat is getting localized we’re getting this. Sometime. Now all those Smash Brothers players will finally understand who Marth is. Perhaps, Nintendo will capitalize on the popularity of Bral with a  sticker that says “includes Marth from Super Smash Brothers Brawl!”


Marth is the protagonist of Fire Emblem: Shin Ankoku Ryuu to Hikari no Ken.

  • I love fire emblem, but those DS version graphics suck!
    Why cant nintendo use the 2D sprites that were used to?

  • I agree, I dislike how they have smoothed out the graphics. This reminds me of one of the first GBA games announced (not sure if it got released) it was called Napolean.

  • Mikael

    I am sure it won’t be as made as we think (model wise), might be better in animation but sure I do prefer these sprites with eye dots than this style, hoping for the best!

  • I was really really looking forward to this… and I just assumed it would have Sacred Stones graphics +, but this is crap!

    Radiant Dawn would have been the best FE if only it was 2D. Nintendo! Dont screw this one up! Give the fans what they want!!

    *crosses fingers and hopes for the best*

    but honestly, I don’t get what everyone has against the graphics. yes they were originally 2D. but these graphics look quite ok to me.

  • MickeyP

    this just crossed the line, yes they are gonna localize the 1st Fire Emblem for DS, but WTF why arent they using 2d sprites.
    First Advanced Wars, now Fire Emblem.
    Screw it, Im getting a rom patch

  • Brandon

    that’s not true i personally like the graphics and so do all my friends
