    It's almost time for Nintendo to talk about their plans for the Fire Emblem series. The direct will feature Fire Emblem "titles", as in plural, so it's sure to be interesting. Stay tuned with GBAtemp, as there will be live coverage of the direct, which starts at 5pm ET, as well as a fact roundup after the video has ended.

    :arrow: Watch it here!

    It begins. Girl and boy talking to each other and a statue of a dragon. Duma and Mila, "sibling gods". World is called Valentia.

    Fire Emblem echoes looks awesome! I like that they're finally doing something different with the series.

    I may just get back into fire emblem after all.

    Ah, it's one of those gacha games, where you spend unlimited funds in the hopes of rolling the character you want. Might be neat though.

    Exactly and iOS users taste their stealing of Super Mario Run as well!

    I hope the new fire emblem for 3ds doesn't lack the support system.

    Somewhat on topic with the series, but with Fire Emblem infecting Smash, I wonder how come it hasn't hit Mario Kart yet.

    These are usually locked until the direct/presentation is over - so that people don't post off topic things before there is even anything to discuss.

    Sigh, they called that a Nintendo direct? It was more a promotional video for a game that won't be on a Nintendo system... such a waste:(.

    Only disappointed that all these games aren't on the Switch. Also, that there's no Fates port. :P Too busy doing all these Fire Emblem games, that the Switch main one got pushed back. /jk
    Why would you say that? Link is weird enough. lol

    Well i liked the presentation. Is like the person talking was from the game. :)

    Although i still lack enough interest to play any of these games. A interesting idea, that camelot software company thatt makes those mario sports titles like tennis and golf, they used to make SHINING FORCE and even GOLDEN SUN. Why not have them help make a fire emblem game for once? Or make a new GOLDEN SUN Game? :P

    You are worried about link in mario kart and not fire emblem? What about some good cross over games like remember in smash bros, all those videos they made to promote the new characters.

    Did anyone forget these videos? Link and pit fighting, Captain falcon and chrom, where is this epic cross over game? Mario kart featuring animal donkey kong, animal crossing and link characters? How bout some sick Fire emblem, legend of zelda kid icarus cross over? (Not like Kid icarus or f zero has that many games.) They could try to bring back, it has as good of chance as maybe punch out series or duck hunt, or even ice climbers getting a game. Missed oppertunity nintendo, even to feature in another project cross zone game. :P

    Where the cool awseome ridiculous cross over games these trailers could have been, i would be satisfied if it was a movie or some cartoon. :D

    Hyrule Warriors was a superb game well worth playing and it felt unique rather than being a copy of Dynasty Warriors. This... this looked generic and dull. I wish I was optimistic about it.

    Speaking of SSB. We have two more amiibos. Does that mean two more Fire Emblem characters for Smash?

    Not really worried, I was just curious. They have Splatoon characters coming to Mario Kart now so they proved that crossovers aren't limited to Smash. I like the idea of C. Falcon and Samus at odds over a bounty, they have some beef at a space bar and tussle.
