Choose Your Side When Fire Emblem Fates Releases This Saturday


This Saturday Nintendo is asking you to choose, between the family who raised you and the family you were born into. Fire Emblem Fates is seeing release on Nintendo 3DS and players will get to choose which side they take.



Raised as royalty in the Nohr kingdom, main character Corrin’s life is forever changed when it is revealed that they were actually born to the neighbouring land of Hoshido, and were kidnapped as a child by the evil King Garon. Now both nations are on the brink of war, and the player must choose whether to protect the homeland of Hoshido in Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright, or to side with the family who raised Corrin and put a stop to Garon’s machinations in Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest. The story is completed on June 10 with the download-only release of Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation, which sees players refuse to choose a side, and exposes the truth about the two kingdoms’ war.


Depending on the side chosen, the story will change drastically, providing wholly different experiences suited for differing player tastes and experience levels. Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright players can take on Challenge Maps to gain additional experience and money whenever they choose, making it ideal for beginners or those who first encountered the series in Fire Emblem: Awakening. Meanwhile, Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest contains a different cast of recruitable characters and doesn’t contain Challenge Maps, making character growth harder and finances more scarce, creating a tougher experience that will be familiar to veterans of the older games in the Fire Emblem series. To experience the full story, players can purchase the version they don't yet own as well as Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation as paid downloadable content from June 10, 2016 in-game for $26


In celebration of the release of the game, fans will be able to pick up either the all new New Nintendo 3DS XL Fire Emblem Console, or if you have an existing New Nintendo 3DS, the limited cover plates.


Both the machine and cover plates will be available exclusively through EB Games.
