Nintendo announced a release date for Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem – Hero of Light and Shadow and it’s coming to Japan soon. Real soon. July 15 soon.
This is a remake of Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, a Super Famicom game only released in Japan with some extra features. One of them is Nintendo Wi-Fi support for two players. The other is a protagonist change. Marth isn’t the lead character this time around. You, a new recruit in the Knights of Altea, are.
Players create a character in the My Unit. Customization options include gender, eye, hair, and face styles plus a unit type. These factors will affect conversations with your fellow knights. Intelligent Systems also made new scenarios for the My Unit character. There’s a prologue which follows the My Unit character as s/he rises the ranks to Marth’s army and a side story with a new map.
Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem – Hero of Light and Shadow has not been announced for the West at this time, but Nintendo has a perfect opportunity to do it in two weeks at E3.
