“The earth split, the seas parted, and the heavens themselves threatened to come tumbling down. The battle transcended any that history had yet known.”
—The Book of Valentian Revelations, Chapter 15.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia (ファイアーエムブレム Echoes もうひとりの英雄王 Faiāemuburemu Echoes Mō Hitori no Eiyū'ōFire Emblem Echoes: Another Hero King in Japan), is a Japanese tactical role-playing game for the Nintendo 3DS, developed by Intelligent Systems and published by Nintendo. It is a remake of Fire Emblem Gaiden. It will be released in Japan on April 20, 2017 and internationally on May 19, 2017.


Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia was first announced during a worldwide Fire Emblem Nintendo Direct on January 18, 2017 as a remake of Fire Emblem GaidenEchoes marks the third remake of a previous Fire Emblem installment, the first two being Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem. The game will receive a full visual remake with full 3D models and new animated cutscenes produced by the animation Studio Khara, and will be the first core series Fire Emblem title to feature full dialogue voice-acting. The updated character designs were created by the Japanese illustrator Hidari, previously known for her work on the Toukiden and Atelier series, as well as a variety of light novels and other media.

Story Edit

See also: Fire Emblem Gaiden.

Fire Emblem Echoes follows the same basic plot as Fire Emblem Gaiden, with the protagonists Alm and Celica fighting in a war that has consumed the nations of Rigel and Zofia on the continent of Valentia. It is currently unknown what changes, if any, have been made to the plot of Echoes compared to its predecessor.


Fire Emblem Echoes retains and updates many mechanics that originated in Fire Emblem Gaiden. Among these include a navigable world map, as well as freely explorable towns and dungeons. Such exploration takes place from a third-person behind-the-back perspective, and when an enemy is encountered during exploration, the game transitions to a traditional Fire Emblem tactical battle. If the player can preemptively strike the enemy icon in the dungeon to start the battle, the enemy units will begin the fight with a slight reduction to their HP.

Echoes will have compatability with the amiibo line of figures. It is unclear which ones will be compatible and what functions they will perform. A bundled two-pack of Alm and Celica amiibo has been confirmed for release on the same day as Echoes. In Japan, the Alm and Celica amiibo will be sold individually.
