From bathing suit to Punky Brewster cosplay in one cross-Atlantic trip. Some of the changes made to Japan’s Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem to make it North America’s Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE are quite odd.
Another giant JRPG is out for the Wii U today. Is Atlus and Nintendo’s mash-up of Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem any good? We’ve got positive impressions of the Japanese version of the game and video of the first hour of the Western version to help you decide.
New maps from Fire Emblem Fates’s second map pack will start to release on May 5, Nintendo announced today. Map Pack 2 will contain 6 maps in total, with the entire package costing $8. Check out our review of the game here, if you haven’t yet.
Today, Nintendo announced that it’s releasing Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem apps for mobile devices.
Last week I posted about an XCOM 2 mod that let squadmates gain stat buffs by bonding with each other over time, ala Fire Emblem. I concluded my post with the question on everyone’s mind: “When can my XCOM 2 soldiers start smooching and get married?” The answer: now.
The team behind a nine-month-old fan translation of Fire Emblem Fates disbanded yesterday, appearing to cancel their project in the process. That decision prompted disappointment and anger, but there are reports a new team has picked up the project.
Fanart is a high form of flattery. Turning scenes from your favorite games into animated clips, each taking hours to days to weeks to finish, has to be the highest form.
“It’s not sad if it’s anime,” Kirk says on this week’s episode of Kotaku Splitscreen, explaining his love for Fire Emblem characters. OK, Kirk.

Fire Emblem Fates had the best U.S. launch in series history, Nintendo said this morning. They sold 300,000+ copies of the game. Also noteworthy: Birthright outsold Conquest, which makes sense!

You’re going to need more than a cool dragon transformation if you want to survive out in the battlefield. Thankfully, we’re here to help.
Fire Emblem Fates is out today, and it comes in two different versions: Birthright and Conquest. Which one should you play first?
True to its title Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem is a mix of the two games, but if you expected a dark and depressing tactics title, you’re more than a bit off the mark.
The confusion around the self-censored Fire Emblem petting/touching mini-game is finally ending. We now must clarify that, while the American version of Fire Emblem Fates will not let you rub allied characters in exchange for gratitude, it will indeed let you tap your spouse in order to wake them up.
Less than a week away from the release of the new Fire Emblem games and I still can’t decide. Why not both?
You might have heard that Fire Emblem Fates is getting rid of the infamous ‘petting’ mini game for western shores. But even with that aspect of the game gone, much of the experience is still brimming with suggestive content.
