Fire Emblem: Heroes Of Light And Shadow Spotted In Nintendo Power

By Spencer . July 8, 2010 . 11:35am


Sandwiched between Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light and Frogger Returns is a listing for Fire Emblem: Heroes of Light and Shadow in the August issue of Nintendo Power.


That title sounds an awful lot like a localized title for Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem – Hero of Light and Shadow, an upcoming Fire Emblem remake slated for release next week in Japan. Perhaps, Nintendo is considering to release the Nintendo DS game overseas.


The magazine also has a bit on The Last Story in the games from Japan spread, albeit without any release information. Nintendo is publishing Mistwalker’s Wii RPG this year in Japan.


Thanks for the tip Sunny!

    Good, good. I figured they’d release it, but… well, this isn’t necessarily confirmation, but it seems pretty unlikely that it won’t jump shores. Something that more or less confirms The Last Story would be great, too.

    I’ve had a pretty “meh”/uncaring attitude towards Nintendo for the most part over the past few years, but they’ve started to get better and better lately… again.

    • They probably went after as many casual gamers as they could because they knew their core crowd would come back when they announced new “core” games. At least that’s the thinking of the type of businessman Iwata seems like to me. Crafty and competent.P.S. the second core is in quotes because i think it sounds weird.Edited for typos

        True that. It certainly seems like Nintendo knows how to work the industry better than anyone else, and I can’t really fault them for that.

    This is a Japanese RPG column in NP that is listing this game. They do give it an English title, but never state anything about it coming over. It having a translated title in Nintendo Power sure gives it credence.

  • Speaking of Nintendo, they’re gonna go all out as possible at the Nintendo World Store on Saturday with Dragon Quest IX. didn’t mention this earlier because there’s a 80% chance of T-storms that day. But… as for me the weather shall not falter my will to go to the event. The only thing I’ll miss is the ice cream.edit: weather update…
    edit: 2nd update, weather cleared for the morning, chances of t-storms still exist in the afternoon though

      Wish I lived near by. I would go as well. :(

    I do hope this is coming over. Even if Dark Dragon was somewhat of a disappointment, I love Fire Emblem too much to pass up this game.
