Nintendo Direct - Fire Emblem TONIGHT (18 January) 10pm GMT

Found 18th Jan
Many people here may already be aware of this, but for those not - hot on the heels of the Switch reveal at the end of last week, Nintendo's next 'Direct' presentation is up-coming tonight, at 10pm UK time.

The presentation is set to be focused on the Fire Emblem series, so undoubtedly (I hope!) we'll be getting some news about the Switch exclusive Fire Emblem Warriors - perhaps together with the upcoming mobile game. Whether there'll be anything else covered is anyone's guess, but we'll find out soon enough!

You can watch the presentation from Nintendo's own site, here: nintendo.co.uk/Mis…tml

It'll probably also be on Youtube (and will be archived for on-demand viewing), if you prefer to watch it there.

...while Fire Emblem Warriors, due for release later this year, will be coming to both the Switch and New 3DS.

There will also be an entirely new Fire Emblem game on the Switch in 2018.

The previously-outlined mobile game is Fire Emblem Heroes.

Pre-registration link for Fire Emblem Heroes on the Google Play store: play.google.com/sto…=en

I'm looking forward to seeing more that Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. Would have liked that to appear on the Switch so I would have gotten that version. Not interested in Warriors at all but it's great to see an entirely new one is being made for it. Just a shame it won't be this year

Exciting direct, the mobile game looks like it could be really good (I hope we can buy those gem thingies with My Nintendo points!) I may have to get a New 3ds now, my original is starting to age... X)

Proper Fire Emblem, but there's also Fire Emblem Warriors as an entirely separate game.

From what I saw there's a new FE coming to 3ds systems which is a totally remastered version of the second game in the series (Gaiden on the NES, it was japan only) called Echoes - Shadows of Valentia. There's also a spin-off game for new 3ds systems called Fire Emblem Warriors (like Hyrule Warriors only Fire Emblem). There's also a new Fire Emblem coming to Switch sometime in 2018. And then there's the mobile game coming out next month called Fire Emblem Heroes. You can vote for your favourite characters to so that they might make it into the game over at the new website here.

I currently have the 2DS but was wondering are there many 3DS games that are not compatible with the 2DS?

No, only a handful. The 2DS can play all games that play on an 'old' 3DS; it's just New 3DS exclusives that it cant play.

I will need to do a little research on the New 3DS and consider upgrading as I didn't know about the exclusives.

3DS gaming: 3.5-7 hours
DS gaming: 7-12 hours

So yeah mighty close but with the 3d off and the brightness not on full it is closer to the 7 hours.
Zelda plays for a reported 3 hours so I have serious doubts anything other than 1-2 switch will get close to the advertised 6 which is where it needs to be to replace the 3ds.

Thanks that is really helpful. Looking at Xenoblade Chronicles 3D and Runbow on Amazon I see the strip along the top saying "Only For New Nintendo 3DS". I now know what to look out for but I can imagine it will confuse a lot of people!

Yup I was a little confused too as i've got an "old" 3DS and was wondering if it's worth the upgrade to the new N3DS. Cheers for helping clarufy that up. i'll stick with my old one for now and try and finish ocarina of time!
