Fire Emblem: New Mystery Of The Emblem Trailer Opens With Character Creation

Nintendo released a new gameplay video of Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem – Hero of Light and Shadow that starts with your custom Fire Emblem character.


The “My Unit”, um, unit joins Marth’s army and has a brand new prologue introducing him or her. Chris, the Marth look-a-like, is the My Unit in this trailer.



After the game’s logo, Nintendo gave us a peek at casual mode. Shiida dies in classic mode when an arrow hits her. In casual mode, Shiida retreats instead of dying.

  • So does this say anything about class choosing or it the My Unit restricted to something like a ‘Lord’ class?

    • Natat

      I remember reading that the My Unit… unit gets to choose from a number of classes depending on the gender of the character.

    • Hraesvelgr

      Males can choose from Mercenary, Knight, Cavalier, Fighter, Archer or Mage.
      Females can be a Myrmidon, Pegasus Knight, Cavalier, Archer or Mage.

      You can also choose from other classes later, using the reclass option.

    I really miss the hand-drawn sprites.

    Can’t wait for this game to be released here. Fire Emblem has my soul xD

    I agree with jj984jj, I miss the GBA sprites. Hopefully the next Fire Emblem returns to them. :3
