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
